LONDON (AP): Manchester United retained top spot in the Premier League by routing Bolton 4-0 on Saturday after Chelsea thrashed Aston Villa 7-1 to remain within a point of the defending champions.
Dimitar Berbatov scored twice either side of Jlloyd Samuel's own goal and substitute Darron Gibson's late strike to keep United on course for a fourth straight title.
But Chelsea has a superior goal difference after an emphatic display against Villa, which saw Frank Lampard score four to become the club's third-highest all-time scorer with 151.
