Crystal Palace 1-2 Manchester United with Ibrahimovic scoring late in second half to seal three points as Zlatan Ibrahimovic steals in from the left to score late winner goal.
Manchester United against Crystal Palace in the premier league midweek game on Wednesday night at Selhurst Park. United were looking to build on their 1-0 win over Tottenham last weekend but Mourinho pulled off a surprise with starting lineup lacking pace all over the pitch. United control the first half but never really looked like scoring. It was a controversial break when Paul Pogba popped in and scored at the stroke of half time.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored a late winner as Manchester United beat struggling Crystal Palace in a highly controversial game at Selhurst Park. James McArthur looked to have earned Palace a crucial point with a composed finish after a wonderful flicked pass by Damien Delaney. They had fallen behind when United striker Ibrahimovic appeared to handle a pass into the path of Paul Pogba, who finished from close range. After McArthur’s reply, the visitors then had complaints of their own as they were denied a penalty when Palace substitute Joe Ledley handled in his own area, with Juan Mata having a goal ruled out moments later for a controversial offside decision. Time was running out for United when Ibrahimovic earned Jose Mourinho’s men back-to-back league wins for the first time since August.
