The former Hearts player was the centre of attention after his introduction on to the pitch and the Hibs fans reacted furiously to some later gesturing from the Czech attacker, who had what looked like a perfectly good late goal chalked off by the linesman for offside.

"We said to them to not get involved in anything." Fenlon said "It's about playing football matches and winning games. The best answer for anybody is to go and win the game."

The match represents an incredible turnaround for Hibs - it is the first time they have played United since being badly beaten 3-0 on the opening day of the season.

"I certainly didn't think after Tannadice that we'd be sitting here, today, top of the league." Fenlon said.

"That is great credit to the players. They knew they didn't work hard that day, but they've rolled their sleeves up and worked hard to get better.

"I thought it was a complete performance today. We were superb in the first half and in the second half we had to defend, football is about doing both."

"It shows we've come a long way."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
