A brace for St. Ole sees off the Geordies...

Goals either side of half-time by St. Ole (aka Gunnar Solskjaer) at Old Trafford today saw off the 'Geordies' as United of Manchester beat United of Newcastle by two goals to nil.

It was a proverbial 'walk in the park'. Pat Nevin, the former Scottish International star said "...it was one of the easiest Premiership wins that I've ever seen, and the thing is, Manchester United didn't have to play that well". Oh dear.

IF this game had finished up five or six nil, it would have reflected how much of the game and chances the home side had. Ronaldo hit the workwork three times and once again the Portuguese winger was United's best player. A good job he wasn't allowed to move to another club in the summer then.

The most worrying news for United fans was that Heinze had to leave the field injured with what looked like a serious hamstring injury.

Elsewhere, West Ham lost 0-1 at home to Reading, courtesy of an early goal by Seol Ki-Hyeon.

Much to the relief of Martin Jol the Tottenham manager, Spurs won 2-1 at home to Portsmouth, by virtue of a controversial penalty award, which was converted by Defoe. That was after Murphy had given Spurs a lead on two minutes, but Pompey came back through Kanu on the half hour.

Blackburn had to come from behind at home to Wigan, who took the lead on two minutes through Emile Heskey. The visitors took the game to Blackburn and had the better of the exchanges during the first half, but former Arsenal star Bentley scored an excellent goal deep in first half injury time to take the teams into the break on level terms. Benny McCarthy wrapped up the points late in the game with a tap-in following a goalkeeping error my Chris Kirkland.
