Manchester United secured a 20th top-flight title after Robin van Persie’s memorable hat-trick severely damaged Aston Villa’s hopes of staying up.
Van Persie scored three times in 31 first-half minutes at Old Trafford to send United 16 points clear of rivals Manchester City with four games left.
Ryan Giggs set up the Dutchman to tap in before Van Persie’s sublime finish after Wayne Rooney’s pass made it 2-0.
His close range finish after Giggs’s pass sealed an historic win.
The victory was every bit as emphatic as United’s 13th title in 21 Premier League seasons under Sir Alex Ferguson.
