Manchester United enjoyed yet another positive weekend after making it three consecutive Premier League victories.
The Red Devils overcame Aston Villa in the Midlands on Sunday – the goals coming from Rasmus Hojlund and Scott McTominay. Victory sees Erik ten Hag’s side head into the final chapter of the season in positive form, while they now have an excellent chance to earn a spot in the Champions League come the end of the campaign.
Plenty of reaction has been generated by Sunday’s success, while legendary Man Utd boss Sir Alex Ferguson has had his say on the title race. Take a look at all of the headlines to come out of Old Trafford over the past 24 hours:
Sir Alex laughs off Tottenham title
Alex Ferguson has quickly dismissed Tottenham’s chances of ever winning the Premier League. Asked by Sky Sports, he responded “no” as he tried and failed to suppress a number of chuckles.
He added: “No, ’61 was the last time they won it, well that’s a long time. The opposition today with Liverpool and Manchester City being so powerful in the Premier League. Even for United now, we’re having to fight.”
Ferguson’s former side Man United are currently attempting to chase down Spurs in the race for a Champions League spot. The North London side currently sit fourth and six points clear of the Red Devils.

Neville makes “pathetic” Onana jibe
Former Man United defender Gary Neville took aim at Andre Onana for a bizarre incident during Sunday’s win against Aston Villa. The home side were awarded a free-kick on the right flank, which John McGinn almost inadvertently dribbled into the near post.
Despite his effort going wide, Onana scrambled across his line and carried the ball out of play for a Villa corner. Speaking during commentary, Neville said: “That was a pathetic passage of play. McGinn’s delivery was awful and then Onana makes a mess of it.”
