United star compares Palace comeback to Fergie era

We're gutted but maybe at 2-0 we should have settled for two goals and shut up shop and tried to frustrate them.

"It is a big game against Liverpool", Mourinho said. He's scored a few goals - not many - but he's scored a few goals.

"After the second goal it was very hard for us to come back; we showed character and did exactly what the manager wanted us to do", the Serbian said.

"Their (Palace's) second goal made things much more hard for us but Chris Smalling's goal was very important", said Mourinho.

"I can not tell you half of the things I told my team at half-time because there would be lots of bleeping on television", Mourinho said. "To come back from 2-0 down away home against a team fighting desperately for points and scoring in the last minute gives us a great feeling".

The out-of-form Pogba, dropped several times by Mourinho recently, was a major cause of the visitors' woes as the Frenchman was wasteful in possession and caught out of position time and again.

With runaway leaders Manchester City closing in on their third league title in seven seasons, attention has shifted to the fight for Champions League qualification and United's battle with Liverpool to finish second behind their neighbours. In the first half Alexis (Sanchez) was on the left, in the second half he was behind Lukaku.

United were relieved, but it took a brilliant one-handed save from De Gea, diving to his right to keep out Benteke's header, to ensure their comeback wasn't in vain. Antonio Valencia picked him out with a fine cross from the edge of the area and, under minimal pressure, he headed the ball back across Palace goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey and into the back of the net. The only thing is that has saddened me today is the fact we've gone home with no points.

Palace, which is in the relegation zone, also conceded an injury-time goal to lose to Tottenham 1-0 in its previous game.

"It was a bit of a Groundhog Day moment", he told Sky Sports.

"We showed a lot of character".

United manager Jose Mourinho described his team's defending for that goal as "disgraceful, childish".

"I do really think that a performance like that deserved something".
