Manchester United 2 Swansea City 0

Match corresponding to the Premier League and played at Old Trafford.

Manchester City’s result at St James’s Park earlier in the day had pretty much taken the sting out of this one. United did what they had to, win. yet City should be champions by this time next week. It wasn’t lost last Monday at the Etihad rather on New Year’s Eve against Blackburn, losing at the DW Stadium, letting a two goal lead slip twice against Everton. The list is endless of idiotic results that have meant that after 16 point swing United handed City the initiative. Once can clutch at straws in that QPR are still very much alive but a team that has won at home with regularity in the past weeks has also lost with the same regularity away. Nothing is yet decided but as Sir Alex said before kick off, they have two hands on the trophy. The match was a bit anti climatic for the reasons given. Scholes and Young got the goals and De Gea prevented City’s goal difference advantage getting larger. The curtain comes down on Old Trafford for a season that could have seen the trophy being presented on that hallowed turf today but alas there are many problems with this squad and something Fergie will have to be done. Heres to a last day miracle!
