Gary Lineker makes claim about Man United after 2-1 win over Crystal Palace
Gary Lineker says the performance reminded him of Manchester United of old...
Gary Lineker has taken to social media to claim that Manchester United’s 2-1 win over Crystal Palace reminded him of a vintage performance from the Red Devils.
The Red Devils made it back to back wins in the Premier League as they followed up their 1-0 victory over Tottenham with a 2-1 win at Selhurst Park.
Club record summer signing Paul Pogba gave the Red Devils the lead on the stroke of half-time in the capital.
However, the Eagles equalised through James McArthur’s low finish in the 66th minute.
But the Red Devils claimed all three points when Zlatan Ibrahimovic latched on to Pogba’s through-ball and fired home a sumptuous finish.
And Lineker used his personal Twitter account to deliver his verdict on the Manchester United performance after the game:
Shades of the old @ManUtd

Manchester United now turn their attentions towards their Premier League trip to West Bromwich Albion on Saturday night, in what will be their final top-flight game before Christmas.
