Title review: March’s review of the 20th title rumbles on to March...

Overview: Beginning with a bang, United produced a clinical display to seal a 4-0 victory over Norwich. Shinji Kagawa’s hat-trick supplied a personal highlight for the Japanese star. Jubilation was admittedly short-lived as the Reds exited Europe via a contentious defeat to Real Madrid before drawing with Chelsea in the FA Cup. Thankfully, Sir Alex rallied the troops and consecutive 1-0 wins over Reading and Sunderland edged the championship crown ever closer.

Key moment: After Manchester City lost 2-0 at Everton in the midday kick-off, the onus was on United to take advantage against Reading. It was far from a classic, but Wayne Rooney’s solitary goal was enough to secure a narrow victory and move the Reds 15 points clear. Meanwhile, Ryan Giggs signed a contract extension.

Star man: David De Gea was’s player of the month, keeping three clean sheets in as many top-flight matches while also impressing in Europe and the FA Cup. Wayne Rooney was influential, too, netting a thunderbolt against the Canaries and starring against the managerless Royals.

State of play: With just eight games left to play, Sir Alex’s men were 15 points clear of Roberto Mancini’s flagging champions ahead of a potentially decisive Manchester derby.
