Mourinho hails 'amazing, important' Man Utd victory at Crystal Palace

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho had sympathy for Crystal Palace after Monday's night's amazing 3-2 win.

Nemanja Matic scored a stunning stoppage-time winner as United came from 2-0 down to go second in the Premier League table and leave Crystal Palace in the relegation zone.

Mourinho said, "I think Palace deserve congratulations, because a match like this is only possible with two teams. I would say it was with three teams because the referee wanted to keep the intensity of the game going.

"It was a fantastic match. It was a dificult match for me because my team made so many mistakes.

"We played very good quality football in the second half but we made so many defensive mistakes.

"I don't like my teams to lose their organisation like we did, but it was an amazing match and a very important win for us."
