Man United win the Premier League

Manchester United players get the Premier League trophy

Manchester United have won their third Premier League title in three years after drawing 0-0 with Arsenal.

United only needed to avoid defeat against the Gunners to take the title, which they managed after a tense match.

United are now seven points in front of their nearest rivals Liverpool, and as the Reds only have two league games left, they can't overtake United.

It's the 18th time United have won England's top division, equalling Liverpool's record number of wins.

After the match United boss Sir Alex Ferguson was asked if it was important that his team had equalled Liverpool's record.


Sir Alex said: "It'll make it more special when we are in front of them. Next year we are going for it again."

Ryan Giggs said: "We wanted to win in it front of our own fans, we've only done it once before so it just makes it more special.

"When you're younger you think you're gonna get more and more but as you get older you run out of time, so you do appreciate it much more."
