Man. United remains on course
by Paul Kennedy, May 4th, 2009 7AM



[EUROPEAN RACES] The top four teams in the English Premier League all won, leaving teams in the same places at the top of the standings with three weeks to play.

Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson made seven changes from the team that beat Arsenal, 1-0, on Wednesday, but United still won, 2-0, at Middlesbrough on goals by Ryan Giggs and Park Ji-Sung.

United leads Liverpool, a 3-0 winner over Newcastle, by three points with a game in hand.

Third-place Chelsea, which faces Barcelona Wednesday in the second leg of their Champions League semifinal series, downed West London rival Fulham, 3-1.

Arsenal, which faces Manchester United in the Champions League on Tuesday, downed Portsmouth, 3-0.

GERMANY. Bosnian Edin Dzeko scored a hat trick in 12 minutes to help first-place Wolfsburg beat Hoffenheim, 4-0. Wolfsburg, which has never won the Bundesliga title, opened up a three-point gap when Hertha Berlin and Hamburg settled for a 1-1 draw. In Jupp Heynckes' first game since returning as interim coach, Bayern Munich beat Borussia Moenchengladbach, 2-1, to take over second place.

FRANCE. Marseille had to settle for a 2-2 tie with Toulouse at home and is now tied with Bordeaux at the top of the standings.

French international Andre-Pierre Gignac twice put Toulouse ahead, but Senegalese Mamadou Niang responded with two goals for Marseille, which hasn't won the French league title since the era of disgraced owner Bernard Tapie.
