Manchester United jumps Liverpool in Premier League table with dramatic comeback

Jose Mourinho

"I've never seen a Jose Mourinho team as inefficient as this", he said. United trailed 2-0 at Crystal Palace and were on the verge of taking a big hit in the standings before producing a stunning second-half comeback to win 3-2.

The Portuguese tactician's side trailed 1-0 at the break, and things got worse when Patrick van Aanholt extended the Eagles' lead three minutes into the second half.

The Manchester United manager said Palace boss Roy Hodgson "did everything right", and hailed the match as a spectacle.

"I think we are improving, we need to do more for sure because in small games we drop some very important points and you can't lose these types of points".

Since the former United manager's retirement in 2013, the team have often appeared to lack numerous traits they consistently demonstrated during his reign.

"But with that disgraceful, childish (goal) - you can find so many adjectives for that second goal. everything changed but the players kept an fantastic attitude".

Finally, it was defender Chris Smalling who leapt highest to head home and score the first United goal.

Weakened Merkel has work cut out to make coalition last
The AfD, an anti-immigrant party, entered the federal parliament for the first time in September. Her party received the most votes but it took five months to form a coalition government.

They were given early encouragement by Mourinho's men, who were playing as though it was nothing more than a Sunday morning kick-about in the park.United paid the price for their lethargic start in the 11th minute. "Some days more than others, but after Smalling's goal, I always thought it was possible".

"We had an awesome attitude, very good quality in second half, but we made so many defensive mistakes, and I don't just mean my defenders, I'm speaking about the team in general".

"I always believe we can win".

"It's like him [Sanchez] and Pogba are like two kids in the schoolyard "we're the best players we'll go wherever we want".

"It's a phenomenal goal and a goal [worth] two extra points".

Matic is likely to be a key player for the Reds in a crucial run of three successive home games in three different competitions, starting with the visit of rivals Liverpool to Old Trafford on Saturday.

They trail runaway leaders Manchester City by 16 points, but Mourinho is more concerned with securing the top four finish that guarantees qualification for next season's Champions League.
