Darren Bent scored a last-gasp equaliser as Fulham held Manchester United to a 2-2 draw at Old Trafford.

Steve Sidwell had put the visitors ahead in the first half, before late goals from Robin van Persie and Michael Carrick look to have secured three points, but Bent struck with a minute remaining of injury time.

Here is a selection of our favourite Twitter reaction from the professionals in chronological order to the surprise draw.

Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere (‏@JackWilshere ) is relaxing after Saturday’s thrashing at Anfield: “Super Sunday…….Recovering at home watching our opponents on Wednesday!”

Hull City centre-half Curtis Davies (‏@TheCurtisDavies) praises goal-scorer Sidwell: “Not one bit happy to see it but @sjsidwell can’t stop scoring.”

Former Crystal Palace forward Mark Bright ‏(@Mark__Bright ) reckons Nemanja Vidic is distracted: “Bloody hell Vidic. .. unhook the caravan you’re towing. . #mufc #ffc”
