With 90 minutes up and only injury time to be played in their third round match against West Ham at Upton Park, Manchester United looked set to fall at the first hurdle of their bid to lift the FA Cup for the first time since 2004.
However, Robin van Persie had different ideas. With United trailing 2-1, RVP controlled a through-ball from Ryan Giggs and fired past Jussi Jaaskelainen to earn the Red Devils a reprieve.
And while United manager Sir Alex Ferguson won’t be happy at having to contemplate another match being added to an already-congested calendar, he will be delighted that his side have earned another chance to make it through to round four.
