Manchester United Win vs Middlesbrough, 1-0, Close In On Leaders

Manchester United maintained the pressure on Liverpool and Chelsea as Dimitar Berbatov's goal, his third for ManU in the Premier League, saw off a spirited Middlesbrough. Though United had better chances, the brave visitors defended manfully and could have taken the lead when Tuncay headed just wide in the 61st minute. But substitute Paul Scholes steadied the ship and Dimitar Berbatov sent a goal in from close range six minutes later. The Red Devils move seven points behind leaders Liverpool with two games in hand.
