Manchester United supplied a late Christmas present for Reds around the world on Boxing Day, beating Newcastle 4-3 to move seven points clear at the top of the Barclays Premier League.

Javier Hernandez latched onto Michael Carrick's cross to seal a dramatic win in added-time, causing chaos inside Old Trafford to conclude a chaotic match in which the Magpies thrice led through strikes from James Perch, Papiss Cisse and a Jonny Evans own-goal.

Thankfully, the Reds showed remarkable courage and fight, climbing off the canvas on more than one occasion to seal what had seemed an unlikely triumph - thanks mainly to goals from Evans, Patrice Evra and Robin van Persie, prior to Chicharito’s late winner.

Of course, club photographers John and Matt Peters were on hand to capture all of the action and we’ve compiled a gallery of their best images to help retell the story of Wednesday’s match.
