Record-breaking United march on

Published Add your comment

A second-half winner from Ryan Giggs sent Manchester United back to the top of the Barclays Premier League following a 1-0 win over West Ham.

The 35-year-old captain struck the decisive blow in the 61st minute to put United two points clear of Liverpool at the summit with a game in hand on their rivals.

It was West Ham's first league defeat in seven games but they did little to trouble Edwin Van der Sar, who set two more goalkeeping records. The United goalkeeper has now gone 1,312 minutes since he was last beaten in the top flight.
