Manchester United boss praises duo

DYNAMIC DUO: Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford (right) were key to United's win against Crystal Palace

MANCHESTER UNITED boss Jose Mourinho was full of praise for Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford after the last gasp 3-2 win against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on March 5.

Of substitute Rashford, who appeared to turn the game in his team's favour when he came on in the second half, the Old Trafford manager said: “I think Marcus was good. He immediately created dangerous situations and immediately he brought to the side attack and opened more spaces.”

Lingard, who had to move to right-back when United were chasing the game, also came in for fulsome praise from the Portuguese. “I think what I call a crazy right back was also very important.

"We had to take the risk. Lingard is a right back who can make a crazy mistake by losing his position - but can also be an extra man attacking other areas. He was very aggressive.”
