Man Utd 3-1 Man City
Manchester United extended their Premiership lead to nine points with a win over neighbours Manchester City.
Wayne Rooney turned in Cristiano Ronaldo's cross after five minutes and Louis Saha bundled home a second from a Gabriel Heinze cross on half-time.
City lost injured keeper Nicky Weaver, but Hatem Trabelsi pulled one back with a rising drive after 73 minutes.
Ronaldo's late strike sealed the win, before City's Bernardo Corradi was sent off for diving.
Van der Sar: The Dutchman was busier than he really should have been but he kept Blues out easily 7
Neville: Looked like he was going to make early exit with injury but ran it off, and kept Vassell quiet for the most part 7
Heinze: The South American relished the derby in defence but didn't get forward much 7
Ferdinand: Had been in total command but didn't halt Trabelsi in his tracks for City's goal 7
Vidic: The giant Serb again did a great job and got his head on everything. Totally dominated Corradi 8
Ronaldo: Thatcher tried to rough him up at times but he never flinched and won the one-to-one battle 7
Carrick: One or two passes were almost goal assists but they were few and far between 6
Scholes: The architect of virtually every dangerous move United made though he did have a couple of defensive lapses 9
Giggs: Played more derbies than anybody on the pitch but this was one of his quietest - only a few real Giggsy moments 6
Rooney: The most dangerous attacker on the field. Not everything came off for him but had plenty of efforts 8
Saha: On the spot for United's second but this was one of the Frenchman's least dangerous games for a while 6
O'Shea (sub Saha 66): Came on to shore things up but City scored! 5
Solskjaer, Fletcher, Silvestre, Kuszczak not used
United: Rooney (5), Saha (45), Ronaldo (84)
City: Trabelsi (72)
United: Rooney (55)
Middlesbrough 1-2 Man Utd
Manchester United extended their Premiership lead over Chelsea to six points thanks to a Darren Fletcher header at Middlesbrough.
United took the lead when Louis Saha converted the penalty won by Cristiano Ronaldo, who was fouled by Boro keeper Mark Schwarzer.
The home side hit back after the break when substitute James Morrison's low volley found the bottom left corner.
United clinched the win when Fletcher nodded in Ryan Giggs' left-wing cross.
Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson:
"I think that our away form has been fantastic.
"That's got to be needed because it's such a tight top of the league with ourselves and Chelsea.
"The lads showed great resolution, even when Middlesbrough equalised we were straight back at them and they wanted to win it. That's important."

Man Utd 3-0 Everton
Manchester United maintained their three-point lead at the Premiership summit with a comfortable win.
Sir Alex Ferguson's much-changed side struggled to find rhythm early on, but Cristiano Ronaldo broke the deadlock with a 20-yard finish after 39 minutes.
Everton had no cutting edge and Patrice Evra scored his first goal for United from a tight angle after 63 minutes.
Substitute John O'Shea wrapped up the win with a flicked finish from Evra's cross two minutes from time. Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson:
"After dropping two points against Chelsea this was an important game for us.
"I had to make changes because we have got an important Champions League game against Benfica coming up and we couldn't afford injuries and players coming out of the cold to play.
"Cristiano Ronaldo took his goal well and it was a good strike from Patrice Evra as well. He's a good striker of the ball and he's got real enthusiasm.
"We have got players to win games, but need a defensive record that wins titles and it was good to get another clean sheet."

Man Utd 1-1 Chelsea
Ricardo Carvalho's second-half header prevented leaders Manchester United from going six points clear of Chelsea.
Louis Saha gave United a first-half lead after a wonderful piece of skill, bending the ball past Carlo Cudicini.
The game developed an intriguing ebb and flow in the second half as Saha twice went close, while Frank Lampard rained in a series of shots in reply.
And Carvalho earned Chelsea that point when he powered a header past Edwin van der Sar from a Lampard corner.
If United had the better of the first half, Chelsea were well worth the draw given their impressive second-half display.
Man Utd: Van der Sar, Neville, Ferdinand, Vidic, Heinze, Ronaldo (Fletcher 86), Carrick, Scholes, Giggs, Rooney, Saha (O'Shea 86).
Subs Not Used: Kuszczak, Evra, Silvestre.
Goals: Saha 29.
Van der Sar: Solid during the isolated moments when Chelsea penetrated 7
Neville: Helped ensure his England colleague Ashley Cole was the busier defender 7
Heinze: Sturdy resistance knocked likes of Drogba out of their stride at times 7
Ferdinand: Hardly let Shevchenko or Drogba get a sight of United's goal but out-climbed for equaliser 7
Vidic: Felt the illegal force of a few errant arms and elbows but he never flinched 8
Ronaldo: Always looked to penetrate whenever he was on the ball and his slippery runs caused problems 8
Carrick: Maybe didn't shine as a creative force but neither did Lampard or Ballack so he did a job 7
Scholes: Just about shaded it in an star-studded engine room confrontation 7
Giggs: If he could have enticed a touch on one or two of his supplies he could have been formidable 7
Rooney: Even some of his brute force couldn't squeeze him past a stubborn Chelsea defence 7
Saha: After his Glasgow woe his finish was a personal triumph 8
O'Shea (sub Saha 85) No frills cameo 5
Fletcher (sub Ronaldo 85) No real chance to get involved 5
Fucking underserved win....
Celtic 1-0 Man Utd
Celtic edged through to the knockout phase of the Champions League thanks to a wonderful Shunsuke Nakamura free-kick and a penalty save from Artur Boruc.
The Japanese star curled a sweet 30-yard strike into the top corner after 80 minutes to brighten what had been a cagey affair.
Manchester United striker Louis Saha was guilty of a terrible miss when he appeared to assume he was offside.
And Saha's night got worse when Boruc saved his last-minute penalty kick.
Man Utd: Van der Sar, Neville, Ferdinand, Vidic, Heinze (Evra 87), Ronaldo, Carrick (O'Shea 87), Scholes, Giggs, Saha, Rooney.

Van der Sar - Had no chance with the goal and had little else to do 6
Neville - Solid defensively and got forward to good effect 7
Ferdinand - A calm presence at the back and his distribution was solid 6

Carrick - Knitted United's dominant midfield play together 7
Scholes - Started brightly but faded 6
Giggs - Looked dangerous in the first half but went missing after the break 6
Ronaldo - A constant threat down the right and his direct running, especially in the second half, was dangerous 7

Saha - Missed one good chance and then the penalty 5
Evra - No time to make an impact
O'Shea - No time to make an impact
