Fergie - Blues run has to end

Sir Alex Ferguson is hoping Manchester United can end Chelsea's incredible home record.

The Blues have not lost at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League for over four years and entertain title rivals United on Saturday lunchtime, live on Sky Sports 1.

A win for United would all-but clinch back-to-back league titles and Ferguson is expecting his players to rise to the challenge.

He is aware of the task confronting his team in West London, but feels Chelsea's unbeaten run has to come to an end at some stage.

Big challenge

"It's true to say we have players who have met and dealt with big challenges," said Ferguson in The Sun.

"Life is full of challenges and we have always relished those challenges and accepted them. This is a very big game and the players we have here want - and need to play in - big games.

"Chelsea have an unbelievable home record and one they should be proud of.

"But somewhere along the line someone is going to beat them. Life is like that. And hopefully we can do that.

"We could achieve quite a lot in the next few days. The incentives are there and we have the players to do it."
