Arsenal stunt United's title aspirations

Manchester United FC will host second-placed Chelsea FC with a three-point advantage next Sunday after Aaron Ramsey's goal downed Sir Alex Ferguson's side at Arsenal FC.

Manchester United FC's hopes of winning the Premier League title suffered a setback as they lost 1-0 at Arsenal FC, Sir Alex Ferguson's men remaining three points clear at the top after Aaron Ramsey’s winner.

United had seen second-placed Chelsea FC close the gap with a 2-1 victory against Tottenham Hotspur FC on Saturday, and this defeat means Carlo Ancelotti's side could overhaul them on goal difference if they win at Old Trafford next Sunday. Ramsey, making only his fourth league appearance of the campaign following a long-term injury, moved third-placed Arsenal within six points of the summit when he swept in Robin van Persie's pass after 56 minutes.

Liverpool FC rose above Tottenham into fifth on goal difference thanks to a 3-0 success against Newcastle United FC, before fourth-placed Manchester City FC restored their seven-point buffer to the Anfield club by overcoming West Ham United FC 2-1. Wolverhampton Wanderers FC are one point from safety following a 1-1 draw at ten-man Birmingham City FC in Sunday's other match.
