Man Utd beat Villa to remain on top

Man Utd beat Aston Villa 4-0 on Saturday thanks to an audacious display of skill by Giggs, Tevez, Ronaldo and Rooney. The England striker scored two goals and claiming that Man Utd are playing like Brazil! "Growing up, I used to love watching Brazil and I think the football we play is similar to the way Brazil play." Good going forward and rubbish at the back then?

10 man Arsenal came back from 2-0 down to beat Boloton 3-2 at the Reebok. Diaby was shown a straight red after a potential leg breaker on Gretar Steinsson. Wenger again endeared himself to one and all by stating, "I knew the injury was not bad and not comparable with Eduardo". Fabregas was pivotal to the Gunners fightback which kept them in the hunt for the Premiership title.

Liverpool beat Everton 1-0 thanks to a Torres strike in the first half. The Merseyside derby was as dull as dishwater after that. Sportscence was reduced to trying to lip read the messages of support that the Liverpool fans delivered to Everton's Phil Neville every time he wound up for a long throw in. Liverpool's win should mean that they'll qualify for next year's Champions League ahead of the Toffees, although those soothsayers over at Wikipedia claim that Liverpool are already the 2008 Champions League winners!

Elsewhere, Chelsea continued their pursuit of the Premiership title with a lucky 1-0 over Middlesbrough. The Blues dominated the game but were wasteful in front of goal. Boro's uncanny ability to sign overpriced and overhyped strikers was underlined again yesterday as Afonso Alves missed a hatful of chances. The Brazilian cost £12m after his free scoring form in the Eredivisie, that's the league in which even David Connolly scored 42 goals in two seasons! Carvalho's goal after five minutes turned out to be the decisive moment of the match.
