Manchester City Host Chelsea, Manchester United Travel To Crystal Palace

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang makes shocking admission after Man City thrash Arsenal

To round off another weekend of Premier League football, Manchester United will travel down to glamorous South London - to take on Hodgson's injury-ravaged Crystal Palace, on Monday night.

Crystal Palace and Manchester United are at opposite ends of the Premier League table ahead of their game Monday at Selhurst Park.

Jose Mourinho made a change before the second half kicked off, as his side looked to get themselves back in the game.

However, Jose Mourinho's side roared back, scoring first through Chris Smalling before Romelu Lukaku slotted home a 76th minute equaliser.

Fierce rivals and league leaders Manchester City now have a gap that's over 10 points to Jose Mourinho's men who are in second. I think he was very good.

Palace were 1-0 up at half-time at Selhurst Park thanks to a deflected effort from Andros Townsend but doubled their lead shortly after the break as United completely switched off at a free-kick and allowed Patrick van Aanholt to score.

Although admirably turning their season around under former England boss Roy Hodgson, the Eagles have begun to slip back to their old ways and Palace now once again find themselves at the heart of a relegation battle.

Palace's 18-match and 27-year wait for a top-flight win over United continues, but Roy Hodgson will be more concerned about where there next win of any description is coming from.

"Unfortunately, for us, he's one of many good players that United possess, so life for us could perhaps have been a bit easier if he was their only good player". But the players kept an fantastic attitude.

"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". Similarly, a United win coupled with under 2.5 goals in the match is 23/10.

The drama wasn't over and in stoppage-time Matic stole the points for United, seizing the loose ball on the edge of the Palace area and cracking his strike into top corner to spark wild celebrations from the visitors.

Less than three weeks after Hodgson's appointment as manager, Palace lost 4-0 at Old Trafford to leave them with seven defeats from seven Premier League fixtures having not scored a solitary goal.

FW Alexis Sanchez, 5 - Quiet game from the Chilean.

Last but not least, David de Gea is a big player in any formation.

And finally, with two minutes of added time to play, Matic restored United's tenuous foothold in second place.
