Manchester United came from behind tonight at Old Trafford, to emerge eventual victors over visitors Tottenham Hotspur in a seven-goal thriller.
The comeback denied Harry Redknapp of his first ever managerial win at Manchester United's home stadium, and created history in that the game was the first time in over two years that the Red Devils have come back from a two-goal disadvantage.
Scoring five goals in the space of 22 minutes - all in the second half - United nullified and voided Spurs' lead, securing themselves the top spot of the Premier League by a three-point margin with a game in hand over title chasers Liverpool.
Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney were amongst the scorers for the hosts, both players netting themselves a double, with Dimitar Berbatov adding the cherry to the cake after 79 minutes.
"It was a good comeback," Rooney told Setanta Sports.
"We played too slow in the first half, we had to quicken the game up.
"Going in 2-0 down at half time we knew that if we got that first goal it would get the crowd up, spurring us on further. Fortunately we got some opportunities and took them.
"[Sir Alex told us to] quicken our game up and make sure we score. If we score one goal, then you never know, you always have that chance to go on and win, and we've done that."
Ronaldo then chimed in with his take on the game, citing the introduction of pint-sized Argentine striker Carlos Tevez as the major turning point of the game.
"It's a great result," the winger started.
"To score five goals in the second half is brilliant. We said after the first half that if we scored one, we could score three or four.
"Carlos Tevez changed the game when he came on, he really started to press the defenders.
"We are at the top of the league now. It's great."
Quizzed over the importance of the game, Wazza agreed that United will now be favourites to take the title once more, but wants to make sure that the heads stay focused within the camp.
"It was very important that we won this game," Rooney went on.
"Obviously we're in a great position now - three points clear with a game in hand - but we need to make sure that we take advantage of our situation.
"Now we have a little bit of a margin going into the final stages, and that fills the squad with belief and confidence."
