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 (‏@Lord_Sugar) enjoys heaping further misery of Morgan: “Defoe again 3-0 to Spurs, how are you doing @piersmorgan at Arsenal?”

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 (‏@aguerosergiokun) 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 (‏@friedel_b) praises Spurs: “Another good win and even BETTER results. Defoe on fire!”
