Two goals from Ole Gunnar Solskjær sent Manchester United FC back to the top of the FA Premiership on Sunday as the champions won 2-0 against Charlton Athletic FC.
Solskjær broke the deadlock in the 32nd minute after a lacklustre opening. The Norwegian striker controlled a long ball from Roy Keane out wide on the left before cutting in and firing past Dean Kiely.
Second Solskjær goal
Charlton showed more as an attacking force after the break. Jason Euell put a header wide from just four metres and Graham Stuart had a goal ruled out for offside. But Solskjær sealed the points 16 minutes from time, hooking the ball in on the turn after Kiely could only parry a shot from Ryan Giggs.
In Sunday's other FA Premiership match a mis-hit volley by French striker Sylvain Wiltord gave Arsenal FC a 1-0 win over Everton aFC t Goodison Park.
Wiltord, who had barely been involved in the first hour of a poor game, got the only goal in the 62nd minute when he miscued an attempted volley but succeeded in looping the ball over stranded goalkeeper Steve Simonsen.
The win takes fourth-placed Arsenal to 51 points, one behind Newcastle United FC and Liverpool FC and three behind leaders United, who have won eleven of their last 12 league games.
