In my previous article, I had written about how the trip to Ewood Park would make or break Manchester United's title credentials for various reasons. They may have left it late, but that's Manchester United. Their win sends Blackburn back into the relegation zone and United five points clear of Manchester City and on the top of the table. Who would have thought this was possible back in January after a 3-0 drubbing to Newcastle United?
While United may make the short trip home from Blackburn with three points in the bag, the importance is far greater, having pulled out a victory for the first time at Ewood Park since the start of the 2008-09 season. But these three points mean far more than anything else. Read on to find out what we can learn from a night like this
