Chelsea slip on Fulham banana skin as the Reds go 6 points clear

A couple of days ago on here I suggested Fulham's visit to Stamford Bridge was a potential banana skin and low behold the Blues conceded another two goals and only managed a draw with their near West London neighbours - that Chelsea defence currently has more holes in it than a pair of fishnet stockings.

Meanwhile United beat Reading by the narrow margin of 3-2 with Ronaldo once again bagging a brace and in doing so putting on another man-of-the-match performance. The visitors had substitute Sam Sodje sent off in the second half - he managed only nine minutes on the pitch as that was how long it took him to collect two yellow cards. Prior to that Solskjaer headed in his eighth goal of the season from Ronaldo's perfect cross on 33 minutes. However Reading fought back and equalised before the break with a header from Ibrahima Sonko, but two second half goals by Ronaldo put United well and truly into the driving seat before Leroy Lita pulled a goal back late on to make it another nery ending for the Old Trafford faithful. Ferguson will be delighted with this win and the Chelsea result, the United manager is 65 years of age tomorrow, what better present could he have on the eve of officially becoming a pensioner?
