MANCHESTER UNITED took a giant step towards the Premier League title when they beat Manchester City 1-0 in a one-sided local derby yesterday to open up an eight-point lead over defending champions Chelsea.
United, who won with a 34th minute penalty from Cristiano Ronaldo, have 88 points with two matches to play which means Chelsea, on 80 points with three matches to go, must win at Arsenal today to keep alive their slim hopes of a third successive championship.If Chealsea only manages a draw .... hehe the difference would be 7 points and with 2 games left.... MANCHESTER IS THE CHAMPION !!!!!!!
