United wins in Ferguson''s league match
LONDON: Manchester United cruised past Wolverhampton 3-0 in Alex Ferguson''s 900th league match in charge of the English champions on Tuesday.
Wayne Rooney, Antonio Valencia and Nemanja Vidic scored to ensure United joined league leader Chelsea on 37 points ahead of the latter''s match against Portsmouth on Wednesday.
Aston Villa moved up to third with a 2-0 win at Sunderland, Birmingham climbed to sixth by beating Blackburn 2-1 and Bolton moved out of the relegation zone with a 3-1 victory over West Ham.
Ferguson would have been confident of a victory when he saw Wolves manager Mick McCarthy make 10 changes to the side that beat Tottenham at the weekend.
It took until the 30th minute for United to go ahead, with Rooney scoring from the penalty spot after Ronald Zubar handled.
Vidic''s header from Darron Gibson''s corner gave United a two-goal cushion before the break and Valencia volleyed in another afterward.
