Football: Manchester United win record 19th English Premier League title

LONDON : Manchester United won a record 19th English Premier League title after a 1-1 draw away to Blackburn Rovers at Ewood Park on Saturday. United needed just a point from this game to regain the title from Chelsea and they got it when England striker Wayne Rooney scored from the penalty spot 17 minutes from time after Blackburn goalkeeper Paul Robinson brought down Javier Hernandez. Australia's Brett Emerton had fired Rovers, still not certain of top-flight survival, into a 20th minute lead before Rooney settled United's nerves with a powerful spot-kick. The result gave United, now in sole possession of a record they had shared with arch-rivals Liverpool, an unassailable seven-point lead at the top of the English Premier League table as closest pursuers Chelsea have just two matches to play.
