Manchester United dominated West Ham en route to a 4-1 victory, holding off Chelsea for another week. Ronaldo netted a double for the Red Devils before his countryman Nani received a red card for a blatant headbutt to Lucas Neill's nose. Now Nani will be forced to sit out the final match of the season against Wigan. A win there for United and there will be nothing Chelsea can do to overcome the gap. Dean Ashton of West Ham had the most stylish goal of the match, while my boy Carlos Tevez added an absolute rocket to shut the door on the Hammers.

Fulham continues to fight. The Cottagers got a goal apiece from Nevland and McBride to win for the second consecutive week, this time over a relegation rival in Birmingham. The two squads are joined by Bolton and Reading in a group of four teams in danger of joining Derby on their trip back down.

Not everyone helped themselves. Reading needed a valiant effort against Tottenham Hotspur to stay out of the relegation zone, and it didn't go so well. Robbie Keane scored the contest's only goal, and Reading will sweat it out.
