Last week Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson said that his team would have to go the rest of the season in the Premiership unbeaten and then smack goes his Man United side,losing 2-1 to Manchester City.
Now Fergie says that April will the pivotal point of the title race this season with Man U will clash with Arsenal and then travel to Chelsea two weeks later. Sir Alex says:
There’s no doubt about it, the games against Arsenal and Chelsea will be decisive. The fact that the league is so close makes a big difference. All the top sides have dropped points. Teams are taking points off the top sides more than ever. But it looks likely that our home game against Arsenal and the match at Chelsea could make a huge difference.
Hopefully by that point, United wouldn’t go 8 or 9 points behind Arsenal. They are about to go 5 points off the pace as the Gunners host Blackburn Rovers at the Emirates on Monday night.
