Manchester United remain six points clear at the top of the Premier League following their 3-1 defeat of Sunderland today.

Robin van Persie and Tom Cleverley put United two up in the first 20 minutes. Rooney added a third after the half.

United captain Nemanja Vidic came on as a sub for the final quarter of the match.

United hoped for a fifth clean sheet in 25 matches this season, however Fraizer Campbell heading in a goal putting Sunderland on the scoreboard.

Michael Carrick and Cleverley proved a strong central partnership.

Dynamic-duo striker partners Van Persie and Rooney have earned nine goals between them in their last four league games - and United boss, Sir Alex Ferguson felt that some of the football was terrific.

“Some of the play was terrific and I don’t know whether we relaxed at 3-0 or whether Sunderland got a grip on the game with 20 minutes to go,” Ferguson said.

“But up to then some of our play was fantastic and we should have scored a lot of goals. It was possibly some of the best football we’ve seen this season, some of it was very good. I have no complaints about that first hour. It was wonderful to watch.”

Sunderland lie just a point above the relegation zone after their loss.
