Although the match between Birmingham and Man Utd was drawned though Manchester United rise to the first position.Man Utd usurped the first position from Manchester City but they could not stop run of Birmingham's eight months long undefeated record in their home match.
Manchester United change only one of their player from the squad of their Boxing Day match.They involved Darron Gibson for the first time in place of Park Ji Sung ,as he travelled to Qatar,representing South Korea in Asia cup.
The first flash point of the match came at 25 minutes after Anderson reacted badly on having a sly kick from Barry Ferguson.After the handbag being ensued,referee Lee Mason handed the Brazilian and cautioned Craig Gardner also.
The home support then erupted minutes later as Nemanja Vidic misjudged a bouncing ball and floored Jerome with a high kick to his chest. Mason was correct to reach for a yellow card as Rio Ferdinand had been present to provide cover.
The sides continued at loggerheads, with the ball changing hands time after time. It took a barnstorming Rafael Da Silva run on 39 minutes to show any hint of an opening but his through ball to Dimitar Berbatov was over-hit.
Similarly poor weighting was to blame right away at the other end as Gardner thrashed at a Lee Bowyer knock-back.
Birmingham continued to stifle and frustrate their visitors for the rest of the half before the players trudged off to the warmth of the changing rooms.
United began the second period pushed further up the pitch by Ferguson as he sought to force a way through. Birmingham were presented with the clearest chance of the game.
