Man Utd 2 Portsmouth 0

Manchester United now move three points clear of Liverpool at the top of the Premier League table.This was no classic, indeed for long spells is was very dull, but the result mattered more than the performance and United boss Ferguson looked a happy man as he strode away at the final whistle, to receive further good news rivals Chelsea had been held to a draw by Everton at Stamford Bridge. Ferguson,  made nine changes from the side that lost the FA Cup semi-final against Everton at Wembley on Sunday

Chances did come but not many Peter Crouch’s 70th-minute header drew a fine save from Edwin van der Sar and seconds later David James had to be alert to deny Wayne Rooney after the striker had raced through one-on-one.Rooney put United ahead by slotting home after Ryan Giggs’s cross from the left  flank had played him in thou anderson did look possable offiside.The points were put in safekeeping eight minutes from time when Paul Scholes, making his 600th appearance for the club!, played a great pass through to Carrick, who drove a low home beyond James and inside the post.

Portsmouth manager Paul Hart:
“The players are a bit down, they thought they could get something out of the game.

“Having rode our luck a bit in the first half, I thought at times after the break we controlled the game and were a bit unlucky not to get a goal

“We felt we could come here and get something, but if the players play like that, they’ll be hard to beat.”

Chelsea 0  v  0 Everton

Everton battled hard tonight and showed heart from the fa cup victory over united this fa cup pre showdown ended in a draw and chelsea really needed to win here tonight a good night for united.The hosts enjoyed all the possession, but Everton had the better chances.David Moyes’ side could have won this game and a possable penalty, while Alex brought down Leighton Baines in the box but the ref waved play on.Twice Jo was sent clear on goal, first by Tim Cahill and then by Steven Pienaar, but first the Brazilian shot straight at keeper Petr Cech and then he slipped at the vital moment, fluffing his effort wide of goal.Didier Drogba could then have won it for Chelsea in injury time but his powerful effort from close range hit the bar and bounced away.
