Manchester United draw,win title

Manchester United have added yet another trophy to their illustrious cabinet.The Red devils retained their Premiership crown they have won for the past two years.

Manchester United knew they would need only a single point to clinch the title when they face Arsenal at Old Trafford.

Liverpool fans hoped for something from Arsenal but the game ended 0-0 and thus earned the single point which Manchester United needed.

With this Manchester United have equaled Liverpool's record 18 league crowns and is Sir Alex Ferguson's 11th league title.

Manchester United had ended Arsenal's ambitions of reaching the Champions League finals earlier with a 4-1 aggregate win in the semi finals.And today Arsenal had the opportunity to take revenge for their loss but failed to do so.

Tevez's substitution and gesture of waving towards all four corners of the stadium seemed like his final appearance at Old Trafford for the Argentine in the colours of Manchester United's Red.

This means there is a high possibility Manchester United would field a second string side against Hull next weekend for the final game of the season as they would want their players to be fresh to face Barcelona in the Champions League final on the 27th May. Liverpool end the season without a trophy but would want to finish on a high when the play West Brom tomorrow.
