United close on title

Published Add your comment

First-half goals from Cristiano Ronaldo and Carlos Tevez took Manchester United to within four points of another Premier League title with a 2-0 win over Manchester City.

Ronaldo produced another superb free-kick to put United in front.

But that 18th-minute strike was overshadowed by Tevez's effort, the South American racing to the dug-outs and cupping his ears listening to the celebrations after claiming this morning that his future will be away from Old Trafford.
