Manchester United 1 - 0 Everton

Cristiano Ronaldo's 44th-minute penalty - awarded after Mikel Arteta tripped Michael Carrick - put them five points ahead of Liverpool and Chelsea before they meet at Anfield on Sunday.

Everton put a lot of men behind the ball, a favourite tactic for visiting teams at Old Trafford, but it wasn`t good enough to keep the Reds out.

And, even better, goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar eclipsed the previous league record of 1,104 minutes without conceding a goal, set by Reading's Steve Death in 1979.
