Glory Days: How United won the 2007/08 title

Tevez’s last-gasp equaliser at Tottenham in February was viewed as an invaluable point, but Rooney’s caution in the same game ruled him out of the looming visit of Manchester City, a match backdropped by the 50th anniversary of the Munich Air Disaster.

United struggled to muster a performance to fit the poignant occasion, while Sven-Goran Eriksson’s Blues turned in their display of the season to complete the double over the Reds and allow Arsenal to build a five-point lead at the head of the table by mid-February.

However, the Gunners collapsed after an FA Cup defeat to the Reds, and didn’t win again until late March, while United – powered by Ronaldo’s goals – made a sprint for the line. So, too, did Chelsea, who moved into second spot by beating Arsenal on the same day that the Reds crushed 10-man Liverpool 3-0 at Old Trafford.
