Manchester United 3-0 Aston Villa


Manchester United secured the English Premier League crown for the 2012-13 season after beating Aston Villa 3-0 at Old Trafford.

A blistering, 32-minute hat-trick from Robin van Persie did the damage: the first inside two minutes, the second a Goal of the Season contender and the third a cool finish.

The second half was a non-event—Villa were happy to accept a 3-0 scoreline and protect the all-important goal difference, while United knocked it around comfortable in the knowledge the job was done.

Congratulations to Manchester United!
