Manchester United moved back to the top of the Premier League courtesy of a 3-1 victory over Queens Park Rangers on Saturday.

Elsewhere, West Bromich Albion moved in third with a 3-2 win at Sunderland, while Everton were held to a 1-1 draw with Norwich City, and Stoke City and Wigan Athletic both won.

Here is the best of the Twitter reaction from the professionals after a busy day of top-flight action.

West Brom midfielder Steven Reid (‏@stevenreid12) reckons the Baggies’ campaign could be the best of his career: “Two favourite seasons.. Champions Millwall and sixth place with Rovers.. Champions League with WBA could top both!! Haha!”

United defender Rio Ferdinand ‏(@rioferdy5) is delighted to see Darren Fletcher score: “Decent result today. Bad first half from us, but improved second half. Anderson changed game when he came on, buzzing for Fletcher first goal since comeback!”

QPR owner Tony Fernandes ‏(@tonyfernandes) is pleased with his side’s response: “Lots of heart. We really, really missed Armand Traore.”

Everton captain Phil Neville (‏@fizzer18) is disappointed with a 1-1 draw: “Sucker blow today last minute – but can’t understand the negativity towards the team. We are fifth in league still – come on snap out of it! Yes we do need to turn these draws into wins but there’s loads to be positive and confident about looking forward!”

The Toffees centre-half Sylvain Distin ‏(@sylvaind15tin) feels much the same: “Gutted about the result but very disappointed to read some of those tweets … We should stick together in good times and even more so in the not so good.”

Former Aston Villa star Ian Taylor ‏(@IanTaylor7) praises his old club for a point against Arsenal: “Good point for the boys. Worked hard and played some decent stuff. Follow up with three points versus Reading on Tuesday now. #avfc”

Stoke defender Robert Huth (‏@robert_huth) is happy with a 1-0 win: “Smash and grab today! Love it! Perfect day for football. Wind, rain and awesome support!! #swinglow”

Sunderland star David Meyler (‏@DavidMeyler) is gutted about the 3-2 loss to West Brom: “Disappointed we lost. We created so much second half as well, another game Tuesday. Let’s bounce back with a win and Sunderland too!”

Reading striker Noel Hunt ‏(@boyhunt) is annoyed by the official’s decisions: “Gutted we didn’t take something from today’s game!! At least a point!! Yet another decision goes against us with the penalty claim! #AnyChance I’m not moaning for us well!! I’m annoyed with the fact that these decisions happen in every game every week!! Far to many #PoorLinesmans”

Former Chelsea midfielder Jody Morris ‏(@morriskid) is impressed by Santi Cazorla: “Cazorla is more comfy then my sofa on the ball !!”
