Manchester United has won a record 19th English Premier League title after a 1-1 draw at Blackburn United who scored first before Wayne Rooney equalised from the penalty spot.

Manager Alex Ferguson says Unuited won because of their fantastic home record this season and the draw is another example of their "disappointing" away form,

United picked up just 25 points from a possible 57 on their travels, while being propped up by a near flawless record at Old Trafford where they have dropped just two points all season.

United return to Old Trafford next weekend when they will aim to end the season by maintaining their phenomenal home record against relegation-threatened Blackpool.

They will rest players with the European Cup final in mind, but will not give anything to the Seasiders on the day when they will be presented with the Premier League trophy.
