Following the 6-1 hammering in the Manchester Derby (one set of live scores that would give you nightmares), you would have been forgiven for thinking that the title race was over. Man City were declared all but champions and United were being carved up.
But Sir Alex wasn’t about to let his crown slip, and going into the final game of the year United have slashed City’s 5 point lead to 0. City now sit top purely on goal difference, but with 10 goals in 2 games that cushion musn’t be a comfortable one either.
A hat trick from Dimitar Berbatov and goals from Ji Sung Park and Antonio Valencia put relegation threatened Wigan to the sword and with Blackburn next to visit Old Trafford, despite their valiant effort against Liverpool, you wouldn’t bet against United beating them too.
Game well and truly on!
