Matic wonder goal earns late Man Utd win

Nemanja Matic scored a stunning stoppage-time winner as Manchester United came from two goals down to beat Crystal Palace 3-2.

Goals from Andros Townsend and Patrick van Aanholt had Palace in control with 48 minutes gone at Selhurst Park.

Chris Smalling started United’s comeback on 55 minutes when the defender headed in Antonio Valencia’s cross.

Romelu Lukaku’s 99th career PL goal drew the away side level after Alexis Sanchez’s shot had hit the crossbar.

And after David De Gea made a superb save from Christian Benteke’s header, Matic completed the fightback.

The Serb, who had earlier had a shot cleared off the line, smashed in from 25 yards to take Man Utd back above Liverpool into second place.

Palace are winless in their 18 Premier League matches against United and stay 18th.
