That meant the pendulum had swung heavily in favour of Chelsea taking the Premiership title. Everyone at Chelsea was delighted and we United millions were grim.
The message is – not for the first time in the last 20 years - never give up; and never ever underestimate the master tactician Sir Alex Ferguson.
Just 25 minutes later Manchester United were 4-2 winners and Chelsea had drawn 2-2.
This now means United are looking almost certain to take the trophy and how they deserve it!!
Even the United detractors – and there are many of them – agree United have played the best football all season. They are great value and have played breathtaking attacking football all season in the greatest tradition of Manchester United.
Next weekend I hope we will be celebrating winning the Premiership Title and how sweet that would be for all United fans. We have had to put up with hearing from football ‘experts’ in the media about how great the Chelsea squad is and how weak the United squad is supposed to be.
Just like in the world of business - always question people who call themselves ‘experts!’
