Reds Go Marching On
The gap at the top was down to three as Manchester Untied kicked off, Arsenal having clawed their way from behind to a 3-2 win. However, there was no such fuss at Old Trafford as the Red Devils set about destroying Villa.
Ronaldo gave them an early lead as he controlled a ball with his back towards a goal, and back-heeled it in through his marker's legs and past a surprised Scott Carson.
He then set up Carlos Tevez with a spectacular cross, the Argentine heading in to make it 2-0. The third was also a piece of magic from the winger as he back-heeled a cross into Wayne Rooney's path, the striker calmly rounding Carson and slorring in.
Eventually, United’s play made a fourth inevitable. This side simply look threatening with every attack. Rooney beat Carson from 12 yards at the goalkeeper’s near post after fine link-up play from Giggs, Tevez and Ronaldo, inevitably.
