There was no Grand National glory for Sir Alex Ferguson but Manchester United made up for the disappointment as first-half strikes from Dimitar Berbatov and Antonio Valencia sent them 10 points clear at the top as they recorded a 2-0 win over Fulham in the Barclays Premier League.
Berbatov netted his 22nd goal of the season when he was given the benefit of the doubt with a very tight offside decision.
Valencia doubled the lead just after the half-hour when he nodded home from close range after Aaron Hughes had tried to clear Nani's goalbound effort.
