And so the unbeaten run continues, albeit saved by the skin of its teeth.

Following the incredible three goal fight-back, Sir Alex Ferguson had plenty to say to the press afterwards.

Firstly, he spoke about the first half that saw us fall two goals behind, commenting

“In the first half we were battered and couldn`t handle Charlie Adam – his corner kicks are worth £10 million. We were terrible, but they just never give in.”

“We were all over the place and maybe we were too confident. But I know the games never done in situations like this – you know at some point we`re going to do something.”


Half time saw the introduction of the ageless Ryan Giggs, a move that Sir Alex thought edged the game our way, adding,

“Ryan Giggs made a tremendous difference and we started to penetrate. I think we were deserved winners in the end.”

And as for that dramatic late winner, Sir Alex admitted a sense of relief, explaining,

“I was screaming for him (Berbatov) to square it to Chichatito but, no, he has the confidence and ability to do what he did.”

And on reflection, the boy did extremely well did he not?
