Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored a late winner as
Manchester United beat Crystal Palace to
claim back-to-back Prermier League wins for
the first time since August.
Paul Pogba gave Jose Mourinho’s side the
lead just before half time when he converted
Ibrahimovic’s flick on from close range,
having seen an earlier strike saved by Wayne
Hennessey.

David De Gea preserved the lead with an
excellent stop to deny James McArthur but
the Palace midfielder equalised shortly after
with a cool finish from Damien Delaney’s
sublime back-heel.

The match was heading for a stalemate but in
the final moments Pogba turned provider for
Ibrahimovic who slotted home to keep
Manchester United within three points of fifth-
placed Tottenham Hotspur.
