Premier League title is heading to Manchester United

This weekend should prove to be pivotal in the outcome of the Premier League title. In the early kick off on Saturday Manchester United found themselves two goals down only to win 4-2 after an incredible second half display. Their closest rivals Arsenal then entertained Blackburn in the late kick off but failed to win; the gap is now 7 points with 7 games to go, it is surely over.

There is almost something inevitable about Manchester United; their ability to fight back has separated them from the pack for many years now. As soon as they scored their first goal you just knew they were going to fight back and that is exactly why they will be champions this year.

Whilst there has been renewed optimism surrounding Arsenal’s title challenge in recent weeks they have failed yet again at the crucial stage of the season. Their performance yesterday was abysmal; they lacked the cutting edge and speed to create anything against a very average Blackburn team. It is genuinely quite mystifying after seeing them against Barcelona a month ago when they were outstanding and looked to be serious contenders for all 4 trophies.

It could not have been better for United, who are now able to focus on their Champions League games with Chelsea. It is by no means a vintage United side we have seen this season but they have still done enough and should surely now become England’s most successful club with their 19th domestic title.
