United knocks Tottenham out of league title race

United knocks Tottenham out of league title race

Manchester United effectively turned the Premier League season into a two-team race for the title Sunday by ending Tottenham's hopes, while Andre Villas-Boas paid the price for Chelsea's failure to compete.
United won 3-1 at Tottenham after Ashley Young set up Wayne Rooney's opener at the end of the first half before scoring a classy double himself after the break.
The victory put the defending champions two points behind leader Manchester City and 11 points ahead of third-place Tottenham.
Chelsea is fifth and out the Champions League places, leading to Villas-Boas being fired Sunday after eight months in charge.
Newcastle is two points behind Chelsea after drawing 1-1 at Sunderland, and Fulham routed Wolverhampton Wanderers 5-0.
