Man Utd crowned champions as Chelsea draw at Arsenal

Monday, May 07, 2007

Manchester United won the Premiership for the first time in four years on Sunday as 10-man Chelsea, needing victory to keep the title race alive, could only draw 1-1 at Arsenal.

This would mean that Sir Alex Ferguson has won his ninth Championship trophy as Manchester United manager. Earlier today, Manchester United led the Premiership champions by eight points before the Blues kicked off in north London, with Gilberto Silva putting the home side up in the first half from the penalty spot.

Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech looks at the ball in his goal after Arsenal's Silva scored his penalty during their Premier League match at the Emirates Stadium, London.

Chelsea pulled a goal back, with a second-half strike from Michael Essien, but it wasn't enough to stay in the fight for the Premiership title.

United have now clinched their first Premiership title since 2003 as they have an unassailable lead of seven points games left - away to Chelsea and their last match of the season, at home to West Ham United.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho embraces John Terry and Frank Lampard after conceding the EPL title to Manchester United with a 1-1 draw at Arsenal.

Jose Mourinho’s side now only have the FA Cup final - on May 19 against Manchester United at the new Wembley Stadium - for their only chance of adding to their silverware this season (having won the League Cup), with the added sting of having to form a guard of honour in front of their own fans when they face Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Thusday morning! bwahahahaha!

Well well, Ivan, I must say congratulations that your team won. It does stick in the throat, but since u are a close friend, congrats! Have u popped the champagne?

Now, here's hoping Barcelona can hold off Real Madrid in the Spanish league. The prima donnas of Madrid are breathing down Barca's necks, somewhat undeservedly. Hola Barca!
