United extend lead at top

Next Story

Javier Hernandez and Nani scored the goals that allowed Manchester United to move three points clear at the top of the Premier League with a 2-1 win over Stoke.

Hernandez put the hosts ahead with an impudent first-half back-flick, his ninth goal of the season.

But after Dean Whitehead had nodded home a shock equaliser for Stoke at the start of the second-half, Nani restored the hosts' lead with a precise curling strike that extended their unbeaten run this term to 20 matches.
