Mourinho reveals foul-mouthed team talk inspired Man Utd comeback

  • When can Man City be crowned Premier League champions?

I've never known a United season where the mood swings so wildly, where fans can't decide whether the team are on their way back to greatness or still trapped in a post-Ferguson slump of sub-standard football. United were 2-0 down at Selhurst Park against a Crystal Palace side who had out muscled and out fought the Red Devils for the first half and the early minutes of the second half.

With Paul Pogba and Alexis Sanchez particularly profligate, United was awful in the first half and conceded the opening goal when Andros Townsend's shot from the edge of the area spun into the top corner off the back of United defender Victor Lindelof in the 11th.

It's hardly a gamble rotating the squad when you have so many quality options in reserve and while people have paid good money to watch the game at Anfield tonight, Klopp could still put out a strong side even without his first choice front three.

The dramatic victory took United back above Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool into second - and the two sides will face off at Old Trafford on Saturday lunchtime.

Aguero, 29, still scored 33 goals in all competitions, more than he ever had for City in a single season, but often found himself on the sidelines in the second half of the season as Guardiola opted instead for Gabriel Jesus.

This year she goes in with a realistic chance of setting a new national record and breaking into the medals. Her performances this week show that she has arrived.

"You always need that little bit of luck to win a match in the last few minutes. We had awesome attitude and had very good quality football in the second half, but we made so many defensive mistakes and I'm not just speaking of my defenders".

After hitting back from a goal down to beat Chelsea last weekend, Mourinho insisted this was another demonstration that United have the spirit and desire to overcome perilous predicaments. It would have been nice to have two more points, but we still would have been very much in a relegation battle.

"We were eight points adrift of any sort of safety, now I think we're one point adrift of safety and there's lots of games to go".
