Manchester United seem poised to raise another Premier League title after defeating Sunderland 1-0.
This weekend in the Barclays Premier League saw Manchester United maintain its lead over crosstown rivals Manchester City. United defeated Sunderland with an own goal from Titus Bramble, while City dominated Newcastle United in a 4-0 win.
With both teams winning, the Red Devils maintain their 15-point advantage.
Meanwhile, Tottenham Hotspur defeated Swansea City at Liberty Stadium with goals from Jan Vertonghen and Gareth Bale.
After Chelsea lost to 15th-placed Southampton in a 1-2 defeat, the Spurs took possession of the third spot on the table. Chelsea moved down to fourth, while Southampton now sits safely in 12th place.
Although Arsenal won its game against Reading, the Gunners still sit in fifth place on the table, but only two points behind Chelsea. However, both Chelsea and Arsenal have a game in hand over Tottenham, which will most likely come in handy as the homestretch nears.
Only eight games are left this season, and the table is bound to see some more movement before May 19.
