United didn't give Chelsea the chance to celebrate over the Easter period, as they took three points at White Hart Lane to prolong their wait for the title.

Wayne Rooney scored twice as United showed their defiance to Chelsea and showed Spurs they are nothing more than Pretenders to that Champions League position. God forbid ... this Spurs side is average at best.

United must wonder how they Sunderland off the hook on Good Friday, because if ever there was a fluke, that was it.

United had Rooney at his very best, and Spurs could not get to grips with the kid.
The England striker put United ahead as early as the seventh minute. A neat ball from Ruud van Nistelrooy found Cristiano Ronaldo whose precision cross was tapped in with nonchalance from a couple of yards by Rooney.

For the second goal, Spurs were the architects of their own downfall. Lee Young-Pyo dwelled needlessly on a ball in defence, only to be caught in possession by his Korean counterpart Park Ji-Sung. The United midfielder fed Rooney in oceans of space. The outcome was inevitable. A composed take, a deliberate aim and a rasping shot past Paul Robinson.

Jenas pulled one back in the 53rd minute when Nemanja Vidic's clearance from a corner deflected back towards goal off Rio Ferdinand to allow the Spurs midfielder to stab home.

Even so it was United who finished the stronger.
