Manchester United Holds on to Lead, Win 1-0 vs Everton

Manchester United FC turned up the pressure on the Premier League's chasing pack with an win over Everton at Old Trafford. Cristiano Ronaldo's 44th-minute goal from the penalty - awarded after Mikel Arteta fouled Michael Carrick - put them five points ahead of Liverpool and Chelsea. The Red Devils deserved their victory and could have won by more, but they were made to work for the win by an Everton side displaying all their trademark defensive resilience.
