Manchester United took a step closer to the Premier League title with a 2-0 win at Stoke City yesterday that saw them re-establish a 15-point lead over Manchester City at the top of the table

Michael Carrick gave United an early lead and Robin van Persie completed victory by claiming his first club goal in 11 games from the penalty spot mid-way through the second half.
