Player Ratings: Man United complete turnaround thanks to magnificent Matic

David de Gea – Couldn’t do anything about Townsend’s deflected goal, perhaps he could have done better for Van Aaanholt’s. That save he made late on was sensational, though. 6/10

Antonio Valencia – Pretty quiet on both sides of the ball. Rightfully subbed in the second half. 4/10

Chris Smalling – Made some huge errors, but got United on the road to recovery with a brilliant header. 6/10

Victor Lindelof – Shaky yet again. He switched off at the most crucial moment, and his positioning was awful at times. 3/10

Ashley Young – Similar to Valencia, really. Just couldn’t have an impact on the match. 4/10

Nemanja Matic – Won some key tackles, and won the game for the Red Devils with an absolutely stunning strike. 8/10

Scott McTominay – Probably his quietest afternoon since breaking through into the starting XI. 5/10

Paul Pogba – Had an absolutely abysmal first 45. Improved in the second-half, but he simply has to do better. 4/10

Jesse Lingard – Lively, made some nice runs and stretched Palace. 6/10

Alexis Sanchez – He’s playing far too deep at the moment, while trying too hard to impress. 5/10

Romelu Lukaku – Scored the equaliser, and he took the goal superbly. He waited, bided his time and found the net with bodies aplenty between him and the goal. 6/10


Marcus Rashford – Looked lively. I’d seriously consider handing him a start at the weekend.

Luke Shaw – Didn’t really have an impact on the game.

Juan Mata – Showed some excellent touches and made some brilliant runs.
