Old Trafford came alive and the crowd roared with excitement as the Red Devils played in a way that looked just like the days of Sir Alex Ferguson.

Interestingly, Mourinho's two substitutions paid of as both players scored in the game while Fellaini was instrumental in most of the attacks

Ferguson himself was known for striking at the final hour and it looks like United might have finally found their glorious mojo back.

Moruinho's fate is yet to be known but United firmly backed their managing dismissing rumours he was gonna be fired.

With that last minute performance it is not hard to see why that might be the case.
