Despite having a man sent-off in the first half, Manchester United eased to victory against West Ham United.

Cristiano Ronaldo scores twice and Carlos Tevez made a sensational goal in the Theather of Dreams.

Nani's head-butt on Lucas Neill brought a red card and a way out of the team early. Ashton did an acrobatics in the box and scores once, to give the team some hope. Finally, Carrick shot from outside the area and score his goal. 

Now, United are three points clear of Chelsea, until the blues is playing this monday against Newcastle United. 

A win for United against Wigan next week, will be enough to lift the Barclays Premier League Trophy.
