Former Manchester City striker Niall Quinn believes Manchester United have the title wrapped up thanks to their consistency.

Quinn acknowledges United deserve to be top of the table.

He said: "I am surprised by the points gap. I didn't think it would be virtually over by now.

"I went on record before the Southampton game and said it was Manchester United's chance to gain revenge.

"Robin van Persie arrived at Old Trafford and not in the blue half of Manchester. Vidic has been back on the scene and Rio Ferdinand is having a great season."
