Paul Lambert has insisted that Manchester United were deserving winners of the Premier League title after they secured the championship with victory over his Aston Villa side on Monday.

A hat-trick from Robin van Persie earned the Red Devils a 3-0 win at Old Trafford, a result that opened up an unassailable 16-point gap over rivals Manchester City.
