Gallery: Reds rejoice

Manchester United's march into the Champions League quarter-finals provided an abundance of material for the attending photographers to focus on.

The welcome return of the Reds' attacking swagger resulted in a historic hat-trick for Robin van Persie – the club's first in the competition since Michael Owen went to Wolfsburg in December 2009 – but there were plenty of other fine individual performances and dramatic moments to catch the eye. 

Official club photographers John and Matt Peters and their counterparts from Getty Images were on hand to capture all the action and reaction, and you can view some of their best images now in our gallery.
