The Premier League title challenge could be over before Manchester United face off with Manchester City at Old Trafford in early April. 

The Red Devils came out unscathed in their game against QPR last weekend. City managed the same against Chelsea, preventing the United lead from increasing any further.

United have a 12-point lead at the top and are unbeaten in the league since the November 17. 

However, The Sky Blues will be hoping for a repeat of last season, when United let slip an 8-point to end runners up on goal difference.  

However, March could be they key month in United's search to reclaim their title. They host both Norwich City and Reading at Old Trafford. Meanwhile, they have tricky away trips to West Ham and Sunderland. 

Although, the form United are in of late, these are games that most would expect them to win. With their ability to scintillate at times, in order to grind out results when the going gets tough United have proved they are ready for the fight this season. 

Only three teams have beaten United in the league all season, one of those being Norwich in an unlikely defeat at Carrow Road, and City will be desperate they repeat the trick at Old Trafford.  

Sunderland's Stadium of Light would be a forgettable venue for United especially after last season, experiencing elation and utter disappointment within a matter of minutes as they realised they lost the title.

United players will be hoping for some pay back after The Black Cat's fans openly cheered City's victory against QPR in the title decider breaking United hearts.

The only hope for City would be that United's continued participation in the Champions League, distract's their focus and somehow causes them to drop points. 

Ferguson is intent on winning back the Premier League. And if The Red Devils continue their winning form throughout March, then the title race could be effectively over by the time they face Roberto Mancini's men.
