    United finished 11 points clear of neighbours Manchester City in second-place, wrapping up the title with four games to spare.

    From their 38 games, United won 28 times with five draws to end the season with 89 points.

    Their only defeats came against Everton, Tottenham, Norwich, Manchester City and Chelsea.
