Three points clear!
Poor match, completely switched off in the last 15 minutes but a win is a win.
http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/17519700Fulham manager Martin Jol says everyone inside Old Trafford expected his side to be awarded a late penalty.
The Cottagers were denied a spot kick when United's Michael Carrick tripped Danny Murphy in the 87th minute.
"I think everyone in the stadium expected a penalty to be honest," said Jol. "You have to be brave to give a penalty away at Manchester United.
"I thought it was a difficult decision. If he had given the penalty he would have had to send Michael Carrick off."
Jol added, of 27-year-old Michael Oliver's decision: "A few years ago, the ball was a metre over the line and they did not give it. Maybe the linesman was not quick enough that time.
"But tonight the referee was there in line. It needed a brave decision because it was either a dive and he should book someone or he has to give Carrick a red card.
"I don't want to see Carrick sent off but it needed a brave decision and I think it was a penalty kick."

Good point, we are good with the run ins.
From : http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-17562451Among the current English Premier League teams which have played 50 or more home games since 2006, the statistics supplied by the sports data specialists Opta show that, on average, Manchester United have conceded one penalty every 12 home games.
This is more than Fulham, who have conceded roughly one penalty every 14 games at home.
So it is actually more common for a visiting team to get a penalty at Old Trafford than Craven Cottage.
”Dogs have masters. Cats have staff.”
Huge game tonight, Blackburn at Ewood is never easy. Wouldn't mind Berbatov starting, he always seems to score against Blackburn, but I doubt he'll start.

David De Gea is the best goal keeper in the Premier League right now.
Glory Man U!!!!!
Awesome game. Awesome awesome awesome!! Valencia's goal was amazing. Young definitely should've started. Fergie stuffed up with the line up. No ways Rooney is going to stay on the left so Evra was playing lb/lw the entire game. You could see he was knackered around the 60th minute mark.
De Gea made some amazing saves, hence me saying he's the best keeper in the Premier League at the moment. Valencia is now tied for most assists in the Premier League, despite missing several games due to injury. He's easily one of the best wngers in the the world.
5 points clear and let's hope by this time next week, it's 8. GGMU

At this rate, the Manchester derby is going to be a meaningless drab.
Well I guess we the only derby in town is the NLD then.
