Result: Manchester United vs Reading (1 - 0)

After a disastrous defeat of Manchester City at Everton earlier today, Manchester United can take a huge step towards winning their 20th trophy of the English Premier League by beating managerless Reading.

If they can overcome Reading they'll have 15 points cushion at the top of the table with 9 games remaining.

Old Trafford, 16th March 2013. City said United will make mistake; we'll see about that.

It's interesting to note that M.City are very confident that they will catch United up and beat them at the end of the season just as they did last year. That's according to City defender, Gael Clichy.

Last season: City trailing United by 8 points with 8 games to play
This season: City trailing United by 12 points with 10 games left

Mathematically, the situation is similar but United surely won't allow a repeat of their failure to hold on to a healthy lead this time around.

First half result: MU ( 1 ) - ( 0 ) Reading

21st minute goal by Rooney set United on course. What a lovely run by Ferdinand who then set Rooney to fire home from outside the box.

Full Time result: MU ( 1 ) - ( 0 ) Reading

In the end, solitary goal by Wayne Rooney proved to be the difference. Not a fluent performance by United but a win is a win and they go 15 points clear at the top of the Barclays Table.

Watch out, "noisy neighbours"!

It was nothing like 'stroll in the park' for Man United yesterday. But a win is a win. You can win ugly but it's the points that matter at this stage of the competition.
Glory glory MU
