In his final team selection at the ground where he has presided over an incredible 405 Premier League fixtures, Ferguson did not change the habit of a lifetime and opt for the easy route. Wayne Rooney was dropped but his replacement Javier Hernandez put the hosts ahead after Ashley Williams had made a hash of trying to clear Van Persie's free-kick.
Michu turned home his 21st goal of an incredible debut campaign just after the break to equalise but Ferdinand's late strike allowed Ferguson to leave Old Trafford in the most appropriate manner possible.
