Manchester United won the Premier League title with a 3-0 victory over Aston Villa on Monday. United has extended its record haul of English league titles to 20 with nearly a month left in the season.

With 75,000 delirious Manchester United fans chanting “champions, champions” at full voice, Rio Ferdinand tugged the back of Robin van Persie’s shirt bearing his squad number and shouted: “No. 20, No. 20.”

Twenty was the number at Old Trafford on Monday.

United produced a performance of style and swagger to extend its record haul of English league titles to 20, overwhelming Aston Villa 3-0 to wrap up the championship with four matches to spare and reclaim the trophy from local rival Manchester City.

Van Persie, United’s driving force all season, scored all three goals in a clinical first-half display. Dressed for the occasion _ he was wearing the No. 20 shirt.

“It’s a great feeling,” said the Netherlands striker, the top scorer in the league with 24 goals in his first season with United. “It is a fantastic team and fantastic players. It is a championship for every single one of them.”
