    Sir Alex was delighted to see his side beat Everton and keep yet another clean sheet, but the United boss insisted there is still room for improvement.

    The Reds went five points clear at the top of the league but the 1-0 scoreline made for some nervy moments as the final whistle approached.

    “You only need a second to lose a goal,” Sir Alex told MUTV. “And in a situation like today, where Everton kept going and kept playing balls up to the edge of the box, that can happen.

    “The aim of football is to kill teams when you’ve got them by the throat and we had Everton by the throat several times and didn’t do that.

    “Everton were very energetic and athletic and because we didn’t score a second goal – even though we created some terrific openings – they were always going to carry on and keep fighting. They took us right to the wire.”

    In the end, Cristiano Ronaldo’s penalty separated the sides.

    “He’s taken his penalty well,” Sir Alex said. “He was under pressure, it was right before half-time… but he remained calm.”

    Ronny perhaps should have been given another chance from the spot when Michael Carrick was brought down by Joleon Lescott after the interval. The Reds’ boss certainly thought so.

    “That was a clear penalty,” he said. “There’s no question about that. But you’re never going to get two penalties…

    “Michael Carrick did well today. His penetrative runs were very good. We’ve spoken about our midfielders making those sort of runs into the box and Michael did that well today.”
    Think its a good win for Man Utd. Everton is a tough nut to crack this season and this win will put Liv and Chelsea lots of pressure.

    But still, his best is for Man Utd and I think he still can play for another season. Bad news for the back up keepers like Kuz and Foster thou.
    Just hope that they dun end up like Tim Howard!

    Liverpool win Chelsea 2-0.
    Lampard sent off, 2 late goals in the dying minutes.

    Now Man Utd lead Liverpool by 2 points with a game in hand.

    Its the 2nd best result after the ideal draw cos Liv's destiny lies at OT while Chelsea dun play us anymore. Can't wait for the OT game against Liv!

    Arshavin transfer finally gets the go ahead



    The Premier League have confirmed Andrei Arshavin is an Arsenal player after approving his move from Zenit St Petersburg.

    Both the Gunners and the player himself had endured an anxious wait after a race to get a deal agreed, signed and sealed on deadline day.

    The 27-year-old moves to the Gunners for an "undisclosed fee on a long-term contract" as is now the statutory transfer statement at the Emirates.

    "I am so happy to be joining Arsenal. They are one of the leading football clubs in the world, with a group of fantastic young players and a great manager,'' he said.

    "I am looking forward to making the Arsenal supporters happy and helping this great club win trophies. I'm happy to be an Arsenal player, it was my dream.''

    The Russian revealed the prospect of playing under Wenger was one of many reasons why he had his heart set on the move.

    Arshavin told Arsenal's website: "I moved because I like the Arsenal style, Wenger as a coach and I like some of their players. I followed each game from the moment when I met Arsene Wenger.

    "He told me every time I talked to him, he said: ''I want you to come to Arsenal". He had confidence in me.''

    When asked if he had a message to the Arsenal fans, he answered: "Trust in me and Arsenal.''

    "It was a very hard few days for me but now it doesn't matter because I'm a Gunner, it's great,'' he added.

    Having played for Zenit in this year's Champions League, Arshavin will not be able to play for the Gunners in the competition.

    Wenger hopes the Russian will kickstart the club's campaign for qualification to the Champions League next term, however.

    "We are delighted to have signed Andrei Arshavin, he is a player I have admired for a long time,'' the Frenchman said. "He is a versatile player with great experience, who will add real quality to our squad.

    "Andrei is an exciting impact player with a huge amount of ability and has been an influential force with both Zenit St Petersburg and the Russian national team in recent seasons.''

    Arshavin, who will wear the number 23 shirt, believes it will take him up to two weeks to return to full fitness but insisted he will have no problems adapting to the English game.

    Earlier on Tuesday Zenit reported the fee to be a total of £16.95m including future incentives.

    The playmaker shot to prominence at Euro 2008 after being a hugely important figure in Russia's qualifying campaign as well as being instrumental in Zenit winning the Russian title in 2007.

    Arshavin played 232 games for Zenit, scoring 51 goals and was the 2006 Russian Footballer of the Year.

    It seems uncertain when the player will be able to make his debut for the Gunners as he has not played since managing only the first 45 minutes of Zenit's Champions League defeat at Real Madrid on December 10. And before that Arshavin's last game was 70 minutes against Juventus on November 25.

    Zenit's official website earlier on Tuesday stated: "The St Petersburg club will receive £16.5m - £15m for the transfer of the player and £1.5m compensation for breaking a long-term contract.

    "In addition there is a further 500,000 Euros [£450,000] in bonuses which Arshavin has not yet received which will not be paid and instead make up part of the transfer sum.

    "The overall sum of the transfer is around US Dollars 24m [£16.9m].''

    Should those figures be correct, the deal would represent a transfer record for the unners.

    Arshavin, who is reported to have been prepared to take a pay cut to join Arsenal, will now return to Russia to complete some personal arrangements before starting work at his new club.
