First half goals from Paul Scholes and Ashley Young secured a 2-0 win for Manchester United against Swansea on Sunday, keeping alive the defending champion's faint hopes of a 20th Premier League title.
Scholes opened the scoring by deflecting Michael Carrick's shot into the net from close range in the 28th minute, while Young curled a precise second for United in the 41st.
The win pulled United level on points with crosstown rival Manchester City , but with a significantly inferior goal difference.
City won 2-0 at Newcastle earlier Sunday and will almost certainly secure its first league title for 44 years with a home win against Queens Park Rangers next week.
United's final match is at mid-table Sunderland.
