Fulham Go Down to Reds
United made the most of Arsenal's slip with a comfortable success at Craven Cottage. Owen Hargreaves opened the scoring on the quarter-hour mark, catching Antti Niemi off guard with a curling free-kick for his first goal for the club.
Sir Alex Ferguson decided to rest both Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo and, in their absence, Ji-Sung Park took his chance to score his first league goal of the campaign, heading Paul Scholes' lofted pass in off the underside of the bar on the stroke of half-time. Midway through the second half Rooney and Ronaldo came on and within seconds the champions were three up, courtesy of an own goal by Simon Davies.
Arsenal`s draw with Aston Villa saw them drop another 2 points.
