Manchester United beat Crystal Palace 2-1 at Selhurst Park on Wednesday evening. Paul Pogba, assisted by Zlatan Ibrahimovic opened the scoring in the final minute of the first half, by Palace had equalised 21 minutes into the second half, with United looking to be suffering another 1-1 draw this season. Marcos Rojo was the villain of the match, fouling Wilfried Zaha with a two-footed tackle, seeing himself booked, but possible should have been sent off, just like he should have been against Everton just over a week ago. United never gave up, though. Pogba was a player at the top of his game, playing one of the best matches for his club this season. The Frenchman had one goal, one assist, four shots on goal, four chances created, six dribbles, 91 passes and 100% of his tackles won. Imagine if he would have signed for Manchester City, tackling would not be something he would be doing as Pep Guardiola does not teach tackles to his players, albeit somewhat strange. United, with another three points in the bank, can now think about Saturday’s trip to West Brom, where another three points will be needed, with this match destined to be a tough encounter.
