Crystal Palace v Manchester United; plus league table and fixtures

Crystal Palace sits in the relegation zone, so many believe Manchester United can come out with the win. After a patch of high-scoring run of games following Roy Hodgson's appointment Palace's last four home fixtures in the Premier League have yielded just four goals.

After facing second-placed Manchester United the week before, Chelsea faces City in an intriguing battle.

But Mourinho took heart from the way his players shrugged off their limp opening to move back above Liverpool into second place in the Premier League and within 16 points of runaway leaders Manchester City.

'Maybe they like me here because I keep saying that this stadium and these fans are absolutely attractive'.

Manchester United have won five of their last seven games, losing to Newcastle and Tottenham.

In front of them, Alexis Sanchez and Paul Pogba provided another line for Chelsea to try and breach, with the Chile worldwide often seen coming back to harry N'Golo Kante in the Chelsea engine room.

For United not to let their heads go down when losing 2-0, the Palace fans on good form, was impressive.

7 - It's hard to work out how Smalling is getting in the team ahead of Eric Bailly or Ashley Young instead of Luke Shaw.

Lamar Jackson makes his National Football League position clear
He listed Brady and Cam Newton - "Superheroes", he called them - as two quarterbacks he loves to emulate and watch and learn from. But it was as baffling to the 2016 Heisman Trophy victor as to anyone else when he finally got his chance to speak.

DF Antonio Valencia, 6 - Wasn't quick enough to react for Palace's second, but then played the flawless ball in to Smalling for his goal.

In the 16th minute Townsend whipped in a unsafe corner, and it could have been 2-0, had David De Gea not been the right place. Townsend hit Christian Benteke's pass first time.

Victor Lindelof has shown some assuring signs of confidence and the game against Chelsea was a prime example of this fact.

A firecracker is what it took to seal the points for Jose Mourinho's side, with Matic unleashing a peach of a strike that gave Hennessey no chance in added time to take them back to second spot.

With crucial clashes against Liverpool and Sevilla looming after United's trip to south east London, Monday might be an opportunity to hand Matic an overdue rest.

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

"You always need that little bit of luck to win a match in the last few minutes".

Palace find themselves back in the relegation zone and are in the midst of an injury crisis, with 10 first-team players now sidelined.
