United escaped from a game full of incident on the right side of a few debatable decisions to beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and close the gap at the top of the table to 1 point.
After previous experiments with a Diamond formation, United opted for a 4411 formation, using 2 wingers and relying on Wayne Rooney to drop back into the centre to help out as well as getting forward to support Van Persie.
United started brilliantly and played some nice football, before Chelsea got back into the game. The home side were then quickly reduced to 9 men and Untied went for it to get the winner and see out the win.
Here are this weeks top 5 GIF moments…
1. Wayne Rooney pass
Receiving the pass from Valencia, Rooney does brilliant to draw the defender in before playing a lovely little flick around the corner to return the pass to the winger.
2. Double Headed Backpass
In what was a frantic game from start to finish, this moment of calm was great to see. A long diagonal from Chelsea is intercepted by Patrice Evra who heads the ball back across to Jonny Evans who heads it back to the keeper.
3. Wayne Rooney & Rafael 1-2-3
Nice play see United turn defense into attack as Wayne Rooney and Rafael exchange some first time passes to move United up the wing.
4. David de Gea save
In this fixture last season, David de Gea produced a moment to remember with this great save, and he was at it again this time around saving a Fernando Torres header with a brilliant athletic save.
5. Ashley Young feet & Pass
Nice feet from Young sees him get away from David Luiz before he chips a beautiful pass into the run of Javier Hernandez whose half volley is smashed over. It was good to see Ashley Young back in action and he was hard working and effective all game.
