Mourinho admits expletive half-time rant inspired comeback win at Palace

After over a week without a game, Manchester United are back in action on Monday night when they face Crystal Palace away in the Premier League.

United, far too sloppy and far too narrow early on, had fallen behind 1-0.

United have often been hit this season by the supposedly weaker teams as Mourinho's team have failed to bring their "A" game in these games. United are [2.42] to win half-time/full-time.

Other managers like Mauricio Pochettino is hailed for his work at Tottenham Hotspur, but United are ahead of them in the league and have won more trophies since Mourinho arrived in 2016 than Spurs have since Pochettino joined in 2014.

Taking everything into consideration, I think that Manchester United should win this game but unfortunately, we are not getting a good enough price to make this wager.

It wasn't just the mistakes, though. United missed opportunities to spray the ball side to side, and mis-hit passes meant to accomplish just that.

United appealed in vain for offside but the flag stayed down and van Aanholt held his nerve to slot past De Gea for his first goal since May 2017. Paul Pogba allowed Andros Townsend to sneak into space at the top of the box.

Just three minutes into the second half Crystal Palace doubled their lead.

"David De Gea had to do better with the second goal".

No changes are expected at the back for United for Monday's game. Rashford provided much-needed width.

Antonio Valencia should retain his place at right-back but Luke Shaw could be handed a recall on the opposite flank with Ashley Young given a rest.

Jesse Lingard sent a long range shot wide on 40 minutes, as the game became fairly open and end to end heading towards half-time.

The Red Devils have already lifted the Community Shield, EFL Cup and Europa League during Mourinho's time in charge of the club, having suffered a significant downturn in success following the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013. All the stars point to a Red Devils' win in tomorrow's Premier League matchup. Yohan Cabaye, Joel Ward, Mamadou Sakho, Wilfried Zaha (remember him United fans?), Julian Speroni, Scott Dann, Jason Puncheon, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Connor Wickham are all out.
