Manchester United clinch 19th league title in England

Manchester United's 1-1 draw at Blackburn wrapped up a record-breaking 19th league title in England.

Blackburn had taken a first-half lead through Brett Emerton and Martin Olsson hit the bar for Rovers with a header before Wayne Rooney equalised with a penalty with 17 minutes remaining.

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson added: "Our away form has not been great, yet our home form has been absolutely fantastic - that's won us the title."

The Red Devils have dropped just two points at Old Trafford, though Ferguson's side have picked up just 25 points from a possible 57 on their travels..

United will be presented with the Premier League trophy on May 22 after their home game at against relegation-threatened Blackpool, who boosted their hopes of survival with a 4-3 win over Bolton on Saturday.
