Manchester United vs Aston Villa video highlights

Manchester United won their 20th English Premier League title on Monday in 3-0 victory over Aston Villa. Robin van Persie powers all goals for United including the hat-trick on his third goal in first half alone. The win gave the team an unassailable 16-point lead over last season's Premier League champions Manchester City.

Van Persie scored goals in 2, 13 and 33 minutes - the second among the best scored at Old Trafford by a single player. The title win propelled Alex Ferguson's 13th title in his managerial career at Uniter to assail the jubilant home crowd. He now won 49 club trophies in various league.

Ferguson is responsible for bringing Van Persie in the team last summer which appears to be a huge acquisition that paid by just small amount of time. The Dutchman is likely to win the Golden Boot ahead of the Liverpool striker Luiz Suarez, who will face suspension for admitting biting an opponent.

Wayne Rooney failed to produce a goal in such an important game as his two attempts all were all but blocked. There were speculation that Rooney will be dealt in sometime or another after the arrival of Van Persie last summer.

Aston Villa was just overwhelmed by a much talented team in a game what might appear to be 5-0 game. There were couple of misses including Shinji Kagawa miss early in the second half.

The Dutchman opened the scoring just couple of minutes into the game before netting again in a beautiful assist by Rooney in over-the-shoulder volley 11 minutes later. Check Van Persie hat trick video above.

Then in 33-minute, Van Persie the quickest Premier League hat-trick in nine years and his 24th goal this season. Ryan Giggs leads a counter-attack following a poor piece of positional play from Aston Villa, then Giggs cuts it back to Van Persie who controls, ball and hammers it into the top left.

The game was Villa's worst since their last encounter with the thrilling 3-2 defeat to United at Villa Park. On Monday night they were poor in attack – Christian Benteke has his worst game by misfiring that could have tied the game at 1-0. Villa defense was just dreadful all night.

Final Score: Manchester United 3 (Van Persie 2, 13, 33) - Aston Villa 0; United are the 2013 Premier League Champions
