Sir Alex Ferguson feels that Manchester United's performance in a 3-0 win against Newcastle United is their best of the season to date.

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has declared that his team produced their best performance of the season so far in taking all three points at St. James Park.

United got off to a flier in their impressive win against Newcastle United, running out 3-0 winners thanks to goals from Jonny Evans, Patrice Evra and Tom Cleverley.

Ferguson told Sky Sports News that he thinks his side produced a complete performance against the Magpies.

Asked if he thought the win was United's best of the season, he said: "I would agree with you. I think so.

"Although the second half against Tottenham we were terrific, but the first half spoiled the whole day. Whereas today I thought the whole game we were on top of our game in the sense of concentration, determination, all the things you want to see in a team that's going to win.

"It was a great result. To come here and win 3-0 against a really powerful, aggressive Newcastle team, you have to make sure you really perform and keep control of the game and I think we did that most of the time."

The eye-catching victory lifts United into second place in the Premier League table, four points behind leaders Chelsea.
