EPL: Crystal Palace vs Manchester United

United can move back into second place in the Premier League with a win over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Monday, yet his side have been under the microscope at times this season because of some negative tactics.

Manchester United rescued a 3-2 win against Crystal Palace on Monday night.

"We've just had Chelsea at home and got Liverpool at home as well".

FW Romelu Lukaku, 6 - After a quiet game, he showed great patience to wait until he had a clear route to goal to take his shot to equalise.

Manchester United have lost their last two league games on the road and are fighting with Liverpool for second spot behind rivals City. "My team made so many mistakes", Jose Mourinho said after the match.

United's players switched off for Palace's second goal in the 48th, Jeffrey Schlupp taking a quick free kick and Patrick van Aanholt running through before applying the finish.

The Red Devils will progress to the quarter finals of the world famous competition if they beat Sevilla at Old Trafford on March the 13th after a goalless draw in the first leg. Mourinho guided United to Europa League success a year ago in his first season at the club.

Which all adds a little more peril to the visit tonight of Jose Mourinho's Manchester United.

Merkel, who was selected for a fourth term, congratulated her future partners and said that she needs "a clear result". The SPD members' vote also helped Europe's leading powerhouse avoid snap elections or an unstable minority government.

"We want to win as many games as possible and of course, you always want to come first".

Although admirably turning their season around under former England boss Roy Hodgson, the Eagles have begun to slip back to their old ways and Palace now once again find themselves at the heart of a relegation battle. But the players kept an wonderful attitude.

"You don't learn things about players of that quality", the Palace manager said over the weekend.

Crystal Palace have only scored in four of their 17 Premier League games against Man Utd, netting just five goals in total. The third-placed team will be looking to keep up the chase for the second place in the premier league as they trail United by 2 points.

Palace looked shaken after conceding and Manchester United started to look very risky as they searched for an equalizer.

With Matic and Paul Pogba rattled by Palace's relentless pressing, United were unable to match their opponents' intensity.

FW Alexis Sanchez, 5 - Quiet game from the Chilean.

David de Gea will don the goalkeeper's gloves in the match as the Spaniard has been outrightly impressive in recent games.
