[ENGLAND]Manchester United rallied to beat Wigan Athletic, 2-1, to move to within one point of clinching a third straight Premier League title. The hero was Argentine Carlos Tevez, who expressed a desire to leave the club at the end of the season but scored a brilliant goal to start the comeback. United can clinch the title with a win or tie at home against Arsenal on Saturday.

Wigan led on a goal by Hugo Rodallega in the first half but was no match for the quartet of Dimitar Berbatov, Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo and Tevez as United pressed to overturn the deficit.

The winning goal, though, came from midfielder Michael Carrick.

United fans at the Wigan game chanted Tevez's name.

"He is a fantastic little player," United manager Sir Alex Ferguson said. "He knows I want him to stay. I had a chat with him today, [United chief executive] David Gill had some meetings today and I'm sure it's progressed further."
