United let a healthy lead slip towards the tail end of last season to allow Manchester City to snatch the title away with the final kick of the ball. And this season as well, the Red Devils are in a strong position with a 12 point lead over City with just 12 games remaining.
However, Berg does not see Sir Alex Ferguson's men making the same mistake as they now have goal-machine Van Persie in the squad to help turn draws into victories and defeats into draws when the going gets tough down the stretch.
The former Arsenal captain rejected City to join United in the summer and has been the difference between the two sides with 23 goals in 31 appearances already this season.
"Manchester United have come back the only way they know how to," Berg told talkSPORT.
"They made a great singing in Robin van Persie. It's made a big, big difference for them.
"It looks like they'll win the Premier League title. Especially after what happened last season I can't see them slipping up again. I just can't imagine them losing the gap.
"They have a fantastic coach. Nobody was more disappointed last season than Sir Alex Ferguson. Losing to their arch rivals was very difficult to take.
"They conceded a lot of goals before Christmas but they have tightened that up and are getting good results. You can't see them losing it."
Van Persie leads the Premier League scorers table after 26 matches with 19 goals followed closely by Liverpool's Luis Suarez with 17 goals.
