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.
