United close in on 20th Premier League title

7:36 am on 11 April 2012

Manchester United are likely to take another step toward retaining their Premier League football title when they make the short journey tomorrow morning to struggling Wigan Athletic where they've never lost.

Manchester City, who have fallen eight points behind United and now have a near impossible task of regaining the lead they held in the title race for five months, host West Bromwich Albion.

Arsenal can firm up their grip on third place if they beat bottom-placed Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux.

With six matches to play United have 79 points, City 71 and third placed Arsenal are on 61, two clear of Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United.

United could even win the title as early as Sunday, although that is unlikely.
