Sir Al­ex Ferguson´s Man­chester Uni­ted te­am gave a good ac­count of them­selves in the 2-0 ho­me win ag­ainst Shef­field Uni­ted as they stret­ched their lead to six points over fel­low title chasers Chel­sea. Sir Al­ex Fer­guson: “It was a pro­fes­sion­al job and in the sec­ond pe­riod we just ran down the clock a bit. The per­form­ance was eco­nom­ic­al and we did­n’t kill ourselves, which was im­port­ant. It´s good to have our six-point lead back, wi­th five mat­ches to go. The play­ers have got the right tem­pera­ment to cope wi­th it as well. They just kept play­ing their foot­ball; and it was quite good at times.” Man­chester Uni­ted Te­am: To­masz Kusz­czak, Pat­rice Ev­ra, Wes­ley Bro­wn, Gab­riel Hein­ze, Mi­chael Car­rick, Dar­ren Fletch­er, Ry­an Gig­gs, Paul Scho­les, Cris­ti­ano Ron­aldo, Way­ne Roo­ney, Alan Smith.
