Manchester United were made to work hard for their victory at Selhurst Park last night.

The visitors controlled most of the game and took the lead late in the first half thanks to Paul Pogba’s fifth goal of the season.

But with just over an hour played, Crystal Palace equalised through James McArthur.

It looked as though United were heading for yet another frustrating draw in a game they’d dominated, but Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic had other ideas.

The Frenchman wrestled free of his marker on the left before cutting inside and sliding the ball through to Ibrahimovic inside the penalty area.

The big Swede then expertly beat Wayne Hennessey in the Eagles’ goal with a pin-point accurate finish which saw the ball kiss the far post on its way into the net.
