We were 1-0 down against the reigning champions with 15 minutes remaining when Clint Dempsey levelled and sparked a spell of three goals in seven minutes to turn the game around.
Jermain Defoe and Gareth Bale also netted to land three precious points in the race for a place in the top four of the Premier League.
“We changed the result and found the victory,” said Hugo, who made a couple of key saves from Carlos Tevez (pictured above) and Edin Dzeko with the score at 1-0.
“We conceded early and after that, at 1-0 down, it was difficult for us but the game changed in the second half. The bench made the difference and that’s always a good sign.
“It’s an important win because it showed we have good team spirit. It was a great game, a great performance I hope it will give us the power to finish strongly.”
