10:22 am on 18 April 2013

Champions-elect Manchester United twice came from behind to draw 2-2 at West Ham United and move a step closer to their 20th English football league title.

Although second-placed Manchester City won 1-0 at relegation-threatened Wigan Athletic to close the gap on United to 13 points, United only need six points from their last five games to secure top spot.

City have six matches to play.

United have 81 points from 33 games, City 68 from 32.

Chelsea, playing their seventh match in 19 days, showed no sign of fatigue as they won 3-0 at Fulham in a one-sided West London derby.

Chelsea moved into third place on 61 points from 32 games, ahead of Arsenal on 60 from 33, Tottenham Hotspur 58 from 32 and Everton 56 from 33.
