Best two Manchester United comeback Premiership results -- 2010/2011 season

Manchester United's incredible winning mentality has seen them establish themselves as one of the best elite teams in Europe and indeed in the world.Their prowess on the field has seen them spectacularly pull themselves out of the jaws of defeat on many occasions and go on to win matches that it seemed they would lose.

The 2010/2011 premiership season was no different. Sir Alex Ferguson's side showed that in football it’s not over until it is over; and although the final match result may be expected, the journey towards it certainly is never as predictable.

Here are two of the most memorable come-from-behind premiership results in the 2010/2011 campaign that helped United win a record 19th Premier League title.

1.      WestHam:   2 - 4   ManUtd: 2 April 2011

Venue: Upton Park

Going into half-time at the Park, Manchester United were trailing 0-2 courtesy of two Mark Noble converted penalties. Patrice Evra handled the ball in the box and Nemanja Vidic's tackle on Carlton Cole was judged a penalty foul. Mark Noble made no mistakes from the spot as he grabbed a double for the relegation-battling Hammers.

United emerged from the tunnel in the second period determined to overturn the scores and keep their title chase on track. In a breath-taking 15-minutes spell, Wayne Rooney struck a stunning hat-trick that saw United roar back from 0-2 down and take the lead.

Sir Alex Ferguson worked his magic again and brought in substitute Javier Hernandez who poked home a late clincher in the 84th minute to seal victory for the Reds in a pulsating fight back display.

2.      Blackpool 2 - 3 United: 5 January 2011

Venue: Bloomfield Road

Ian Holloway’s side were 2-0 up and the better side going into the break as a below-par performance from Manchester United saw them concede two headed goals early on. Craig Cathcart and DJ Campbell converted from poorly defended corners.

The premier league leaders marched out in the second period determined to move five points clear of the title chasing pack. Sir Alex Ferguson made his intentions clear with the introduction of substitutes Ryan Giggs and Javier Hernandez.

Dimitar Berbatov set the ball rolling for a thrilling turnaround with a goal in the 72 minutes before Hernandez levelled the scores shortly after in the 74th minute. The Bulgarian completed the dramatic comeback with a third, two minutes from normal stoppage time.
