Robin van Persie hailed Manchester United as a "team of winners" as they moved closer to the title with a 1-0 win at Sunderland.
United remain 15 points clear of nearest rivals Manchester City after they saw off the Black Cats at the Stadium of Light and City were convincing 4-0 winners over Newcastle.
Van Persie will claim the only goal in United's win, although it took a big deflection off Titus Bramble, and afterwards the Dutch ace was delighted with the victory as they close in on the Premier League crown.
"We got the three points, we knew it would be tough because Sunderland work hard and we had to dig in, but we deserved it," he told Sky Sports.
"It didn't matter who scored today, it was all about the three points.
"This team is full of winners, everyone knows what they have to do and it was never in doubt for me. I was confident we would win."
