Leaders United stifled by steadfast Swansea

Manchester United FC's Premier League lead now stands at four points after Michu cancelled out Patrice Evra's opener to earn Swansea City AFC a 1-1 home draw with the frontrunners.

Manchester United FC's lead at the Premier League summit now stands at four points after the frontrunners could only muster a 1-1 draw at Swansea City AFC in response to Manchester City FC's late win on Saturday.

Both teams played their part in an entertaining game, and it was United who went ahead after just 16 minutes when Patrice Evra met Robin van Persie's corner at the near post and headed in. Swansea levelled close to the half-hour, though, and for the 13th time in the Premier League this term, it was Michu who found the net. The Spanish midfielder finished from close range after David De Gea had parried a Jonathan De Guzmán effort into his path.

The visitors tightened up after the break and began to dominate, with Van Persie improvising a volley from a Wayne Rooney cross which bounced off the top of the crossbar. Michel Vorm then did excellently to divert a Michael Carrick header against the woodwork, but – unlike City against Reading FC – Sir Alex Ferguson's side could not conjure a late winner.

In Sunday's other match, Chelsea FC can move back up to third when they host Aston Villa FC.
