LONDON, Nov 6 (Reuters) - Manchester United beat Chelsea 1-0 on Sunday to end the champions' 40-match unbeaten run in the Premier League and cut their lead at the top of the standings to six points.

Midfielder Darren Fletcher scored the only goal of a good match at Old Trafford, across the city from the ground where Chelsea were last beaten in the league last season by Manchester City on October 16, 2004.

Just past the half hour, Cristiano Ronaldo crossed to the far post from outside the box on the left and Fletcher ghosted in behind the defence and to plant a looping header over keeper Petr Cech and John Terry and just inside the other post.

In an earlier match, James Beattie's 16th-minute goal gave Everton a 1-0 win over Middlesbrough, their first home league victory of the season. Everton climbed two places to 16th, five points and three spots behind Middlesbrough.

Chelsea still on course for title, says Mourinho

Jose Mourinho dismissed Manchester United's chance of catching Chelsea in the Premier League title race despite his side's 1-0 loss at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Darren Fletcher's first-half header inflicted Chelsea's first defeat in 41 matches and moved United 10 points behind the league leaders with a game in hand.

"We are not under pressure now. Manchester United have to win a game and then they are still seven points behind," Mourinho told a news conference.
