Man Utd 4 – 1 West Ham

Ronaldo who scored twice against west ham

Ten-man Manchester United powered towards the Premier League title with a clinical 4-1 destruction of West Ham at Old Trafford.

Victory at Wigan next Sunday will confirm Sir Alex Ferguson’s men as champions, but the coronation may come even earlier as Chelsea now need to get something – and almost certainly win – at Newcastle to fight on until the final day.

Not even the first-half dismissal of Nani could shake United from their stride as Cristiano Ronaldo’s double took his tally for the campaign to 40 and was quickly followed by a Carlos Tevez thunderbolt.

Michael Carrick wrapped up victory after the interval to keep United on course for the double and place all the pressure on Champions League final opponents Chelsea, who are now three points adrift, with a far worse goal difference and two matches to do something about it.

United thanked their supporters for a season of effort with a lap of the pitch at the end. In eight days’ time they could be celebrating for real.

Scholes fires United into final!!

Man United players celebrate their victory against Barcelona.

A stunning goal from Paul Scholes gave Manchester United a 1-0 win over Barcelona to set up an all-English Champions League final against either Liverpool or Chelsea in Moscow. Scholes sent a trademark shot past goalkeeper Victor Valdes in the 14th minute of the semi-final, second leg at Old Trafford to give United a 1-0 aggregate victory.

Paul Scholes ended nine years of personal torment by blasting Manchester United into the Champions League final with the only goal as they beat Barcelona 1-0.

Scholes’ 14th-minute strike ensured Moscow will host an all-English affair on May 21, with championship challengers Chelsea or old rivals Liverpool lying in wait to provide the opposition for United.

But while Sir Alex Ferguson looks for the second European Cup that eluded Sir Matt Busby and, so far, him, for Scholes the Luzhniki Stadium represents a night to savour.
