Manchester Utd came back from two goals down to beat Tottenham Hotspur 5-2 at Old Trafford this evening, making Liverpool’s title hopes seem even more distant.

Spurs went 2-0 up during the first half thanks to goals from Darren Bent and Luka Modric. But a second half resurgence from Alex Ferguson’s men saw them turn the game around emphatically.

The result, which came just hours after Liverpool beat Hull City 3-1 at the KC Stadium, means Utd regain top-spot and are clear by three points with a game in hand.

Utd also did their goal difference the world of good with theirs now standing at +38 and Liverpool’s at +40.

The Reds next face Newcastle Utd in the Premier League, next Sunday at Anfield at 1.30pm, whilst Utd face Middlesbrough away the day before.

To mark the end of the 30-year wait for a league title, the ‘Liverpool Mishmash’ poster is available to order exclusively on This Is Anfield — the history of the Reds in one image!
