Manchester United moved one step closer to claiming the English Premier League title with a stress-free victory over a struggling QPR side. The win was highlighted by a Rafael strike to give the Red Devils a lead inside the first half hour, and they never looked back.
Manchester City defeated Chelsea in the weekend's marquee match, which keeps at least a little bit of pressure on their rivals from United for another week. It also made the race for third place even closer between the Blues, Tottenham and Arsenal.
The loss by QPR puts them in extreme danger of being relegated with 11 matches to go. The other two spots every club started the season attempting to avoid are still up for grabs. Aston Villa and Reading hold those not-so-coveted positions right now.
City could add some more intrigue to the final stretch if they make a run at United, but the Red Devils don't look like they are going to let that happen. The other races will have to do. So let's look at some of the latest news and rumors along with predictions for the week ahead.
