Manchester United opened up a 15-point gap at the top of the Premier League table with 1-0 win over Reading in the late kickoff at Old Trafford.

Sir Alex Ferguson's side took full advantage of Manchester City's 2-0 defeat to Everton earlier in the day as they piled further misery on the managerless Royals, who are now seven points from safety after sacking Brian McDermott this week.

Everton restored their pride with the win over City at Goodison Park after the insipid display in the FA Cup quarterfinal defeat to Wigan last weekend.

Aston Villa eased their relegation discomfort with a hard-fought 3-2 victory over Queens Park Rangers at Villa Park.

Southampton have begun to make progress away from the drop zone after the 3-1 win over Liverpool at St. Mary's Stadium.

Arsenal continued their good form this week with a 2-0 win at Swansea City after defeating Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, Stoke City and West Bromwich Albion played out an uninspiring 0-0 draw at the Britannia Stadium.
