Manchester United came from behind twice against Reading to complete a memorable 4-3 victory at the Majedski Stadium and move three points clear at the top of the Premier League.

Elsewhere, Liverpool and Tottenham both secured victories over Southampton and Fulham respectively, but Manchester City were held to a 1-1 draw with Everton, while Arsenal suffered a shock 2-0 loss to Swansea at The Emirates.

Here is the best of the Twitter reaction from the professionals.

Celebrity Arsenal fan Piers Morgan ‏(@piersmorgan) has reached breaking point: “Humiliation complete. Wenger must go – this is the nadir. Swansea have been superb, thoroughly deserve their win. We’ve been diabolical, thoroughly deserve our loss. #WengerOut That was the single worst performance of Wenger’s reign. It’s over – he must go before he wrecks his great legacy.”

Former Tottenham chariman Lord Sugar ([email protected]_Sugar) enjoys heaping further misery of Morgan: “Defoe again 3-0 to Spurs, how are you doing @piersmorgan at Arsenal?”

Former Wales star Iwan Roberts ‏(@iwanwroberts) heaps praise on Swansea: “Wow great win for the Swans and very well deserved!”

While the Swans winger Wayne Routledge ‏(@WayneRoutledge) is ecstatic with the three points at The Emirates: “Could not be more happier, what a great performance from the boys!!! #PopThat”

Everton captain Phil Neville ([email protected]) is relishing the chance to analyse a 1-1 draw with City on Match of the Day: “Fantastic performance again from the lads looking forward to analysing the key points from our game on MOTD tonight!”

Toffees defender John Heitinga ‏(Johnheitinga) is also pleased with a point: “A good result for #Everton 1-1. Hoped to play longer during #mcievebut will stay positive and train hard. Thanks for your support. #COYB”

Sergio Aguero ([email protected]) believes City must be more clinical with United up next: “I try to keep positive and it’s good to be undefeated. But we need to regain precision to advance three points apiece.”

Tottenham goalkeeper Brad Friedel ([email protected]_b) praises Spurs: “Another good win and even BETTER results. Defoe on fire!”

Spurs defender Kyle Walker ‏(@kyle28walker) adds: “Great win today and clean sheet from the lads, guttered did not play but what a win #3points #COYS”
