David James broke the Premier League record for most clean sheets for a goalkeeper with a fine performance in a 0-0 draw for Portsmouth at Aston Villa.
James kept his 142nd shutout, surpassing former Arsenal goalkeeper David Seaman for a then-PL record.
Robin van Persie's hat-trick clinched Manchester United's 13th Premier League title.
Each of the Dutchman's goals came in the first half, his second being a stunning volley from a long-range Wayne Rooney pass.
It took United 16 points clear of Manchester City and crowned them champions with four matches left to play. Aston Villa remained three points above the relegation zone.
The destination of the title was also decided at Old Trafford for the fourth time in the history of the competition, more than at any other stadium.
