United's Berbatov (R) celebrates scoring against Bolton
Defending champion Manchester United has reached the top of the Premier League with a last-minute winner by striker Dimitar Berbatov.

The game against Bolton Wanderers brings to seven the number of 1-0 league wins United has managed to secure this season.

The sole goal was scored when Carlos Tevez provided a chance to Berbatov, who headed home a vital winner.

United has 47 points from 21 matches, one ahead of Liverpool -- which can reclaim the top spot with a victory over Everton on Monday.

Alex Ferguson's side has now kept 10 consecutive clean sheets in the Premier League, equaling the record held by Chelsea.

At Stamford Bridge, Chelsea defeated Stoke City 2-1 thanks to Frank Lampard's goal four minutes into stoppage time.

Luiz Felipe Scolari's side stayed third, just ahead of Aston Villa which came from a goal down to beat Sunderland 2-1 away despite having striker Ashley Young sent off.

Chelsea has 45 points from 22 matches with Villa on 44.
