The Sports Matrix: Monday 19 March 2012

United go four points clear after thrashing Wolves

Manchester United heaped the pressure on neighbours City, easing to a 5-0 win at Wolves to take a four-point lead over Roberto Mancini's side. Jonny Evans volleyed the champions ahead after 20 minutes, before the hosts had Ronald Zubar sent off for two quick bookings. Antonio Valencia and Danny Welbeck strengthened United's lead before the break and Javier Hernandez added two more to leave Wolves propping up the table. Elsewhere, Papiss Cisse's goal was enough to give Newcastle a 1-0 win over Norwich. MORE

Torres ends drought in Chelsea romp

Fernando Torres scored his first goals in over 24 hours of play as Chelsea eased past Leicester 5-2 to reach the semi-finals. Elsewhere, Luis Suarez and Stewart Downing found the net for Liverpool as they overcame Stoke City 2-1 at Anfield. MORE

Gatland looks to southern challenge

Warren Gatland says his Wales side have already turned their attentions to bigger things after securing the Grand Slam. "Our aim is to be consistent in beating southern hemisphere sides," he said. "We have a young enough side that we can do that." MORE

Hamilton run gives Leicester the spoils

A terrific try from Scott Hamilton helped Leicester overcome Northampton 26-14 to win the trophy at Sixways. The wing ran 80 metres after intercepting a pass to ultimately give Leicester the win, despite a barrage of late Northampton pressure.

Opinion: James Lawton

The heart of the Fabrice Muamba story is personal and tragic. It is about the vagaries and frequent injustices of human life. Whether it will make football a more compassionate place is, of course, an entirely different story. MORE
