Van Persie opened the scoring in the first minute to put United ahead early on.
A superb volley from Robin doubled United's lead and they looked set to clinch the title.
Van Persie sealed the game for the Red Devils as he fired in a third to give United a 3-0 victory over Villa.
The win gave Manchester United the title which was snatched from under their noses last year by City. But the Red Devils clinched it well in advance and can now play their remaining games with less pressure.
