Back to the basics

Following the shock exit in the Carling Cup, Manchester United got back to the basics as they fought out a 1-0 win away at Villa Park, after a goal from Jones on the 20th minute sealed the 3 points for the Red Devils, but they had to withhold Villa in the second half as they came looking for an equalizer. This win makes the Red Devils climb back to 2nd spot, as Tottenham overtook them temporarily following their 3-0 win, while City still stays five points clear after yet another powerful display with a 5-1 win.
