Ferguson warns against careless defending ahead of Norwich visit

Sir Alex Ferguson says it is vital that Manchester United stop making so many errors, after his side threw away leads in their last two matches.

The Champions lost their 100% Premier League record at the weekend when Peter Crouch equalised for Stoke City to draw the game and they lost a two-goal lead against Basel in the Champions League before the Swiss side went ahead, only a last minute header from Ashley Young rescued a point for the Red Devils.

Ferguson revealed that he has been concerned with the errors his side have been making since their 3-1 victory over Chelsea earlier this month.

He told the Manchester Evening News: “The Chelsea game was conspicuous for the number of careless mistakes we made. I have always firmly believed the old adage that the team that makes the fewest mistakes is the team that wins. We might not be so fortunate next time. Although I was delighted with an important result, I couldn’t turn a blind eye to our deficiencies. We must do better in that area.”
