Wigan 0-2 Man Utd

May 12, 2008

Manchester United pipped rivals Chelsea to clinch their 17th title triumph with victory at Wigan.

Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring for United from the spot after 33 minutes following Emmerson Boyce’s foul on fit-again Wayne Rooney.

Emile Heskey then wasted Wigan’s best chance with a second-half header.

And substitute Ryan Giggs clinched United’s Premier League triumph – his 10th – with a cool finish from Rooney’s pass 10 minutes from time.

It sent manager Sir Alex Ferguson dancing down the touchline in the rain at the JJB Stadium in triumph as United were confirmed as champions two points clear of runners-up Chelsea.

    Solid penalty once again. Ronaldo came back nicely after that missed penalty from the champions league.
