Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has expressed his confidence that his side will be able to maintain their nerve in the remaining few Premier league matches. Manchester United recently secured a three point advantage over City in the title race. United and City are the two teams playing for the title this season. Following the City’s draw with Stoke city during the weekend, Manchester United went out and won against Fulham on Monday night. This result helped them bring about a three-point advantage at the top of the table, although United still have a match to play at the Etihad stadium.
Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has been in situations like this on numerous times, and he expressed his confidence at being able to maintain the focus over the remainder of the Premier league matches. Ferguson also said that as we get near the finale of the season, it is not about the squad strength, but more about the mental strength that matters in the title race. The Scot said that he believes that Manchester United have the mental strength in abundance, but is yet to witness the same with Manchester City. City have already shown weakness under pressure, and are yet to convince him in the title race.
“City have done exceptionally well all season to get to where they are at the moment. They have a chance. Like us, if they win all their games they will be champions, but it is much easier to say that than to actually do it. At this time of year some of the teams at the bottom of the league know they have to start winning games too, because if they don’t they will be relegated,” Ferguson said during the weekend. United have the much easier run-in of the two teams, with Blackburn Rovers up next.
