Berbatov secures United win
Man Utd 1-0 Middlesbrough
Dimitar Berbatov’s 69th minute goal was enough to give United a well deserved win at Old Trafford.
The Bulgarian poked in the winner, as United were the more dominant side throughout the game.
The visitors had a few chances, including a header by Tuncay Sanli, which went just wide of the post.
Man Utd move more closer to their rivals, just seven points behind Liverpool, with two games in hand.
The game was full of chances, a lively encounter no doubt. Jeremie Aliadere had a penalty appeal for the vistors turned down in the second minute.
Ronaldo had a good chance early on but he side footed wide with his left foot. Rooney had a number of chances his best was stopped by Ross Turnbull.
He forced an amazing save of the keeper, who turned Rooney’s shot over the bar.
Man Utd looked more likely like getting a goal and when Michael Carrick’s cross bounced off Wheater, the ball fell in the path of Dimitar Berbatov who could not miss from three yards out.
The 1-0 win now meant that United have had the same score four times in their last six games. Still a win is a win..
