Manchester United fans were absolutely ecstatic with Nemanja Matic after his performance vs Crystal Palace in the Premier League.
The Serbian rescued his side by scoring the winner with a beautiful long range shot to give his team all three points after being 2-0 down.
United secured a comeback win for the second time in as many games in spectacular fashion and had Matic’s first goal for the club to thank.
The holding midfielder doesn’t seem capable of scoring normal goals and while he doesn’t hit the back of the net often, when he does they do prove to be special.
Supporters have been thanking Chelsea all season now for allowing the Red Devils to sign Nemanja and they won’t be thanking the Blues anymore than they have after the match.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you @ChelseaFC for Matic ! 💙❤️

A 6ft 3in+ player who had a better pass completion than any other midfielder, played more key passes than any other midfielder and won the game with a 30-yard thunderbolt.

With Liverpool having temporarily moved second, there was huge pressure on Jose Mourinho’s men to perform in order to climb back up the table.
With Palace scoring early in either half, Manchester United suddenly faced the possibility of getting involved with a top four scrap.
Thankfully, Chris Smalling, Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic were all on the scoresheet to turn things around and send the team back to second ahead of their match vs the Reds.
A win against Jurgen Klopp’s men will certainly be crucial and could very much help United secure second place to conclude a decent season.
Improvement will definitely be expected but with Matic at the base of the club’s midfield, hopefully for many seasons to come, Mourinho’s men should be just fine.
