It was 'Monday Night Raw' at Selhurst Park as José Mourinho's men upturned a 2-0 scoreline. 3 great goals in the 2nd half courtesy of Smalling, Lukaku and Nemanja Matic ensured that United had the last laugh at the Park.
Here are five things Man United Naija FM learnt from the clash:
1. FINALLY, THE YOKE IS BROKEN
For the 1st time in the managerial career of José 'Uchenna' Mourinho, his team upturned a 2-0 scoreline to actually win.
Palace's 2nd goal felt like 'one chance' to the land of no return, but a determined team spirit lead to the liberation of the 'Special one'.
2. WHAT A DAY FOR NEMANJA!!
Despite his 'FANTA-bulous, MALT-aful, and CHIVITA-stic' performances for Manchester United since signing from Chelsea, one thing was missing to finally ice the cake - A goal from Nemanja 'Agu' Matic.
The Serbian chose today of 'Yoke breaking' for José to score the winner of the 'Monday Night Raw'; a beautiful goal that saw the ball dancing 'One-corner' inside the net in 'FERGIE TIME'.
3. SHAKY-SHAKY DEFENCE
The center back pairing of Smalling and Lindelof was very uninspiring today. United had lots of the possession but the few times Palace came at the defence, the pair shook like the popular 'Gabadin material'.
United played well, but the pair were the only source of worry throughout the game.
4. ALEXIS NEEDS TO DO MORE
United's 'Awoof' signing, Alexis 'Balogun' Sanchez did not have a good day at the office. Today he was guilty of losing possession too often (19 times in the 1st half alone), putting the midfield under pressure.
His determination and fighting spirit however remained second to none and made him undropabble. He is a great player, but needs to do more to improve the team.
5. CHANGE HAS COME.
Following the display against Chelsea last weekend, it appears the boss has adopted a new formation and style of play.
It was a repeat 4-3-3 formation with the usual lob-the-ball-to-Fellaini/Lukaku pattern totally absent.
Although the 1st half was poor, United played the ball on the ground and dominated the game despite being 2 goals down......It appears Change has come!!
IN THE END, It was a good game - good play, great determination, never-say-die attitude, and a great comeback. Good adrenaline for the heart.
UP NEXT, Liverpool;Same time, same station on Saturday. Stay tuned.

GLORY GLORY MAN UNITED.
