Manchester United surged 12 points clear at the top of the Premier League with a 2-0 win over Everton on Sunday.

Ryan Giggs broke the deadlock in the 13th minute to claim his first league goal of the season and extend his remarkable run of scoring in every Premier League campaign. Robin van Persie put United in complete control on the stroke of half-time.

Earlier, Villa climbed out of the relegation zone by beating West Ham 2-1 on Sunday, ending an eight-match winless run.
