Fergie - Title Between 6 Teams

Post by Dan on Thu Sep 08, 2011 12:57 pm

Sir Alex Ferguson admits winning the Premier League will be as tough as ever this season, with as many as six teams in the running.

Manchester United secured an historic 19th top-flight crown last term, but they face a battle to keep their hands on that particular piece of silverware.

Chelsea and Arsenal are always there or thereabouts, while big-spending Manchester City, rejuvenated Liverpool and ambitious Tottenham will also have their eyes on the prize.

United boss Ferguson concedes that the race to secure top honours in English football will be keenly contested, with the competition increasing year on year.

"I think you could say that five or six teams will be involved," he told Sky Sports News HD.
Difficult

"It's always hard to win the league. It's a league that if you look at it, in the south you have the London teams like Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea and then you have ourselves, Manchester City and Liverpool in the north.

"It's a really, really difficult league to win."

United have put considerable faith in their youngsters this season and Ferguson admits it is important to inject new blood into a side on a regular basis if you intend to remain competitive.

"You have to try and build teams that will last for a few years," he said.

"We have done that quite successfully over the years. This is another example of trusting the young players and giving them opportunities."
Recovery

One man who will be hoping to slip back into the fold over the next few weeks is Darren Fletcher, with the midfielder yet to make a domestic appearance this season.

The Scotland international has, however, just taken in two games in the space of four days with his country and appears to have shaken off a mystery virus that laid him low towards the end of the 2010/11 campaign.

"It was important for him to get a game," Ferguson said of his fellow Scot.

"He was back training with us, but the team had started so well so opportunities hadn't arisen for him before he went to play for Scotland.

"The fact that he has gone there and done so well is major for his recovery."



Does he genuinely think its between 6 teams or is he playing mind games by trying to get some kind of excuse in or by trying to big other teams up?

Its clearly between 3 teams, the two Manchesters and Chelsea. After that there is the battle for 4th which could be interesting but it'll more than likely be Arsenal or at a push Liverpool if they get going.

I still think people are counting out Chelsea too quickly.

I stand by my prediction that City will finally do it this year, but Chelsea could easily beat Man Utd and Man City on any day and will still hold their good record elsewhere. Chelsea look so much better with Mata there going forward and with David Luiz back the defence will be better. If only they could get Torrid to score.

Out of the three I really would prefer to see City win... I just think a change from the norm would do the Premier League the world of good.
