United went into the half time break trailing 1-0 thanks to a deflected Andros Townsend strike in what was an error strewn first half.
However, the half-time introduction of Marcus Rashford for Scott McTominay allowed United's own attackers to flourish, with Chris Smalling, Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic all finding the net in a memorable late comeback. But, little did they know they'd have to work their socks off to win against a gritty Palace side.
"But you can see how close we are as a group that everyone celebrated together, and how much it means to us, because that was a huge win".
"We had an wonderful attitude, very good quality in second half, but we made so many defensive mistakes, and I don't just mean my defenders, I'm speaking about the team in general".
"If you look at Leicester away when we concede in the last second and we lost to Huddersfield away and in these type of games if we manage to win we can compete for the title of course".
"But Chelsea is a fantastic team and, I know it looks a bit unusual because you know we had problems in the past, but it's quite ridiculous that I have to say how unfair it is to speak the way people speaking about the English champions".

On another hand, after the unfortunate defeat, Roy Hodgson's team now lies in the relegation zone, a single point adrift of the 17th-placed Southampton. Talking on British television, former United player Gary Neville said: "I've never seen a Jose Mourinho team as inefficient as this, I don't recognise this, he won't recognise this".
However, Palace's second goal stung United into life and they were soon back in the match when Valencia clipped a cross to the far post where Smalling was lurking on his own to direct a header back across Hennessey's goal into the far corner.
But just three minutes after the interval, United were caught cold again. "If we had drawn the game - I don't think anyone, Jose included - would have said it was a scandal", he said.
But fats forward 12 months and the United boss is free to carry on his duties as normal as his side prepare for the impending visit of fierce rivals Liverpool to Old Trafford on Saturday.
As for Matic, would you believe me if I said that wasn't his best goal in the a year ago and a half?
