Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic has warned that the Red Devils must remain focused as they close in on the Premier League crown.Sir Alex Ferguson's team are 15 points clear of Manchester City, who have a game in hand, at the top of the table with six matches to play.
Manchester United's charge to a 20th Premier League title continues on Wednesday when they take on West Ham United at Upton Park.Sir Alex Ferguson's side are currently 15 points ahead of second-placed Manchester City and need just seven points from their final six games to clinch yet another piece of silverware.
Stoke manager Tony Pulis has angrily dismissed reports that his job was on the line after the 2-0 defeat to Manchester United.Pulis was said to be heading for the sack if Stoke were heavily beaten by champions-in-waiting United on Sunday.
Manchester United striker Robin van Persie says he was relieved to end a 10-game goalless run in his club's 2-0 win over Stoke on Sunday.The Netherlands forward tucked home a second-half penalty after he was felled by Andy Wilkinson to wrap up all three points for the league leaders and bring to an end a dry spell stretching back to United's 2-0 win over Everton in mid-February.
Manchester United moved a step closer to regaining the Premier League title with a 2-0 win at lowly Stoke on Sunday.An early goal from Michael Carrick and a second-half Robin van Persie penalty wrapped up all three points for Sir Alex Ferguson's men, but they were rarely troubled by a disappointing Stoke who are now more deeply embroiled in the relegation fight to stay in England's top flight.
Manchester United are in pole position to reclaim their Premier League crown but a second successive loss would send jitters through the camp.United head to Stoke on Sunday, having had their lead on top of the table reduced after falling to a 2-1 defeat against Manchester rivals and defending champions City on Monday.
Nemanja Vidic will return to training on Friday, but Ashley Young is out for two weeks, according to Manchester United's Alex Ferguson.The United manager also revealed that Jonny Evans was back in full training this week following an injury he picked up at Sunderland in March, while Evans' fellow defender Chris Smalling could only manage light fitness work.
