Moyes: No One Will Run Away with EPL Title

MOST COMMENTED

Manchester United moved up to fifth place in the English Premier League standings thanks to a gritty 1-0 win at home to league leader Arsenal on Sunday. It was a vital three points for the Red Devils, as a loss would have left last year’s EPL champion with an 11-point deficit against one of its greatest rivals. Instead, the win moved the club to within five points of the summit.

With Chelsea, Manchester City and Tottenham all dropping points this weekend, there are now just five points between the top seven teams in England’s top flight.  "I don't think anyone's going to run away with [the EPL title]," United coach David Moyes said after the game.  "I think there [will be] a lot of ups and downs. It's a close-run league this year. There will be a few shocks.” He added: "We are going to get a few bloody noses along the way but the league has shown that a few other clubs will be getting them as well.”

Moyes singled out strikers Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie, who combined for the only goal of the game in the 26th minute, a van Persie header from a Rooney corner: "Great players score great goals in big games and Robin's a great player. His sidekick [Rooney] played great as well ... I thought the way Wayne and Robin played merited their title as top players."

Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger, meanwhile, blamed the Gunners’ loss, its first since the opening day of the season, on nerves. "We were just too nervous in the first half," the Frenchman said. "We haven't won for a long time [at Old Trafford] now. Once again it is a tight game that has been decided on a set-piece."
