Fergie - Three steps to title

United manager keen to claim title at Chelsea

Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed his three-step plan for Manchester United to retain the Premier League title.

The Red Devils host Arsenal on Sunday, live on Sky Sports 1, before travelling to Blackburn next weekend and then Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea on 26th April.

Victory for United in each of those fixtures would guarantee that they were six points clear of Avram Grant's side with just two games to go, and boasting a vastly superior goal difference.

While they would not be officially crowned champions until Chelsea were mathematically out of the running, Ferguson knows the race would effectively be over.

But the Scot has warned that if they slip against the Gunners on Sunday and again at Ewood Park, it would hand the incentive back to the Blues.


Ferguson said: "We have to win our next three games and, if we do, we've won the title.

"We could go to Chelsea and win in there, or we could lose it there if we don't win our next two games.

"We have 77 points and a better goal difference than our rivals, so to win the league we have to win the next three matches. A lot can happen and the title could do to the wire, there's no doubt about that - it's very exciting.

"This is a difficult league to win and if we have to go to Wigan in the last game of the season and need to win to take the title, that's fine.

"If you said that was the case in August you would have taken it.

"I'm delighted with the way the players are performing and the freshness and energy is terrific."
