Premier league Manchester United v Wigan Athletic (2-0)

Man Utd hold nerve to take title in thrilling finale

Manchester United pipped rivals Chelsea to clinch their 17th title triumph with victory at Wigan.

Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring for United from the spot after 33 minutes following Emmerson Boyce's foul on fit-again Wayne Rooney.
And substitute Ryan Giggs clinched United's Premier League triumph - his 10th - with a cool finish from Rooney's pass 10 minutes from time.

It sent manager Sir Alex Ferguson dancing down the touchline in the rain at the JJB Stadium in triumph as United were confirmed as champions two points clear of runners-up Chelsea.

Ferguson will now turn his attentions to winning the Double when United face Chelsea in the Champions League final in Moscow on 21 May.

Wigan were as good as their pre-match words, putting up fierce resistance before United made their superiority tell when it mattered.
