Van Persie's volley against Villa scoops April's gong.
ManUtd.com’s review of the 20th title rolls on to April...
Key moment: With his first championship crown up for grabs, Robin van Persie showed off his immeasurable quality by scoring a sublime first-half hat-trick to inspire victory over the Villains. His volley, teed up by the impressive Wayne Rooney, later earned the Goal of the Month and Goal of the Season awards.
Star man: Shinji Kagawa was majestic while Antonio Valencia appeared to turn a corner but no player influenced the team as much as RvP, whose displays reminded everybody why his capture from Arsenal was pivotal to the title race.
State of play: With the title wrapped up and just three games left to play, the Reds ended the month eyeing a club-record Premier League points haul.
