Old Trafford boss expects strong end to the season.
Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has expressed his belief that his side will finish the remainder of the season strongly according to BBC Sport.
United currently sit top of the Premier League table despite a 2-1 derby defeat to second place Manchester City on Monday.
Despite the defeat, the gap at the top of the Premier League table remains twelve points and it would require quite a capitulation in United’s remaining seven games for them to fail to lift the title.
United held an eight point lead in a similar position last season before allowing City to leapfrog them and secure their first ever Premier League title.
But Ferguson insisted a repeat is not on the cards this time around.
Ferguson insisted he was not disappointed with his side’s performance during the derby defeat and believes the team are playing well enough to see out their remaining games successfully.
The Old Trafford boss pointed out his belief that Carlos Tevez was offside for City’s first goal and that United were unlucky to lose the game.
Ferguson admitted the club have a history of making life difficult for themselves but insisted the team would be giving everything they’ve got during this weekend’s game with Stoke.
