Don't count out the champions

Don't write an obituary for MANCHESTER UNITED just yet.
That was my first thought after goals by Ryan Giggs (pictured), Anderson and Wayne Rooney lifted 10-man United over TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR, 3-1 at White Hart Lane.
I watched the match live on TV, but very nearly missed the game's first goal -- a spectacular, overhead kick by Jermain Defoe. Defoe scored it within the first minute of the match, and at the time seemed to portend an ominous result for the visitors.
Nothing could have been further from the truth, even after Paul Scholes was sent off in the 59th minute for a stupid challenge.
For all this season's talk of Manchester City, Chelsea and (perhaps) Liverpool, the champions demonstrated today that they are not quite prepared to relinquish their crown.
