Tomer Hemed: Grabbed a late winner for Real Mallorca against Granada

Elsewhere, European hopefuls Real Sociedad and Real Betis shared six goals and Espanyol drew 0-0 with Real Valladolid.

Second-placed Atletico Madrid failed to fully capitalise on Barcelona's loss to Real Madrid as they were held to a goalless draw at Malaga.

Los Rojiblancos could have cut the gap to single figures, following Barca's 2-1 reverse at the Santiago Bernabeu, had they managed to overcome Malaga.

But the fourth-placed hosts proved tricky opposition and just about held their own to claim a point which kept their own Champions League aspirations on track.

Real Mallorca snatched a late 2-1 win at Granada to record their first Primera Division victory in 10 matches.

The hosts took an early lead through Nolito but Alfaro levelled in the 13th minute.

Granada had the greater number of chances throughout the match but a last-gasp headed goal by substitute Tomer Hemed gave the visitors all three points and their first win of 2013.

Dorlan Pabon scored twice as Real Betis held off Real Sociedad's fightback to take a point from a thrilling encounter which ended 3-3.

Jorge Molina gave Betis a half-time lead after Antoine Griezmann's brilliant strike was disallowed at the other end.

Pabon doubled the lead but Sociedad roared back with three goals in 11 minutes from Carlos Vela, Inigo Martinez and Xabi Prieto, the latter with a penalty.

But Pabon's second secured a deserved share of the spoils for Betis, who remain just a point behind Sociedad in seventh.

Espanyol and Real Valladolid played out a dull goalless draw at the Cornella-El Prat in a game where excitement and chances were in short supply.

Valladolid got the point they would have wanted from the clash but Javier Aguirre's side would have left disappointed after previously picking up 16 points from a possible 18 home points since the Mexican replaced Mauricio Pochettino at the helm.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
