Victorious against Spurs
Manchester United rattled in three goals in 10 minutes either side of halftime to set up a 4-0 victory at Tottenham Hotspur and restore their six-point lead over Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday.
United had struggled to impose themselves on the Londoners until Cristiano Ronaldo was brought down by Steed Malbranque in the last minute of the first half and converted the subsequent penalty.
Three minutes after the restart centre back Nemanja Vidic glanced in a firm header from a corner and six minutes later Ronaldo reached the byline to cross low for Paul Scholes to score from point-blank range.
Dimitar Berbatov missed two decent chances for Spurs before substitute Louis Saha set up Ryan Giggs for the fourth in the 77th minute.
