Another win..another clean sheets...

United secured their supremacy at the top of EPL after unconvincing 1-0 wins against mid-table Everton, thanks to the penalty converted by Ronaldo just before the intervention....

Many pundits predicted that United will continue their goalscoring run after the previous encounter with The Baggies. Much to their dismay, United's were struggle in penetrating the resolute Everton's defence. Just before the half-time, the referee awarded a penalty kicks for United, after Mikel Arteta tripping Micheal Carrick, just at the edge of the box. Evertons were furious as the tackles appears to be undeliberately. Ronaldo finish it off by sending former United's keeper, Tim Howard, to the wrong way.

As the second half resumed, United's continued to attacked the resilient Everton's defence. having the lion's shares of possesion, United failed to produced the second goal. Fletcher occasionally miss passed the ball around the park. Tevez and Ji Sung park were tiressly working on the field by opening and creating chances, but to no avail. Dimitar Berbatov hardly saw the ball as he ocassionally stumbled and easily dispossesed by the defence.

As the whistle goes off, United''s marked their winning by setting up a new Premier League record by not conceading a goals for 12th consecutives matches. Samir Nasri was the last player to ever scored against United as Arsenal emerged as victorious in 2 -1 wins at Emiriates Stadium.

Three points was secured and United's are 5 points clear from their rivals, Chelsea and Liverpool, where The Reds will entertain The Blues at Anfield on Super Sunday. A draw willl benefits The Red Devils,and only a win will ensure Liverpool's titles hope for the football most precious Holy Grail sinced 1990.
