With Manchester United winning and Manchester City losing, the biggest question to emerge out of this weekend is whether the title race is already over.
United are set to get Shinji Kagawa and Nani back from injury soon, and Anderson and Wayne Rooney should return a few more weeks after that.
Yet despite their injuries and defensive inconsistencies, United sit seven points clear on top of the table and in complete control of their destiny this season.
Sir Alex Ferguson's men have won 11 of their past 13 matches and have already beaten both their rivals this year—Manchester City and Chelsea—at their respective home grounds.
They have scored over 10 more goals than any other team in the league so far and are simply too strong in attack to keep quiet week in and week out in the Premier League.
Seven points is not insurmountable, as we saw last season, and there's still 19 weeks left to play, so it's hard to say that the title race is definitely over already.
But heading into 2013, you'd rather be on United than any other team at the moment. They are the clear favorites to win the league and deserve to be in that position.
Whether they go on and win it? Well, that's next year's business.
