Utd still on course for league title

LONDON - Manchester United needed a late equaliser from Carlos Tevez to draw 1-1 at Blackburn Rovers on Saturday and stay on track to win the Premier League title.

The reigning champions were trailing to Roque Santa Cruz's 21st minute opener for Rovers before Tevez flicked in a header three minutes from time after a long spell of United pressure.

The point leaves United three points above second-placed Chelsea with three games remaining, starting with next weekend's clash between the two sides at Stamford Bridge.

Manchester United, however, have a superior goal difference.

United have 81 points, Chelsea are on 78 and Arsenal, who beat Reading 2-0, are third with 74. Liverpool are in fourth place with 69 points after a 2-0 victory at Fulham. - Reuters
