Manchester United might be 3 points clear of Arsenal at the top of the table in the English Premier League but just 5 points separate the top three and United manager Sir Alex Ferguson says that the title race this season will go down to the wire.
The important thing was that we had the opportunity and the incentive to go three points clear of Arsenal, our nearest pursuers.
It’s nip and tuck now. I think it’s going to go to the wire. Chelsea will be key because they have got us and Arsenal at home.
It’s a lead, it’s not a significant lead but it’s a lead nonetheless.
With eight games to go the team who plays with the most consistency now will win it.
This weekend is the Grand Slam weekend in the English top flight and the results of this weekend could go a long way in shaping the title chase.
