Default Nemanja Maticís stunning winner completes Manchester United fightback

This game had drifted into stoppage time at the end when Nemanja Matic, a player whose performance had drifted at times, collected a clearance well outside the Crystal Palace area, waited for the ball to bounce and belted a glorious volley at goal. The ball swerved viciously, arcing away from Wayne Hennessey, and Manchester United Ė improbably, if ultimately impressively, had plucked a victory from the dregs.

It was the kind of sucker punch from which Palace may struggle to recover, anchoring them beneath the relegation cut-off as it did. A second game in succession where they have been deflated late on against one of the elite. Josť Mourinho allowed himself a moment of manic celebration before sitting back in his dug-out to contemplate how his team had recovered a two-goal deficit to claim a 3-2 win. Roy Hodgson, further along the touchline, wore the expression of a man devoid of luck.
