Six teams could win Premier League says Man Utd boss

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson believes that his side are one of six teams in the hunt for the Premier League title this season and anyone can win. United are currently joint second with Tottenham Hotspur and sit three points behind league leaders Manchester City.

Ferguson has seen 12 Premier League titles during his quarter of a century tenure at Old Trafford, but faces one of the biggest threats in his career. City have already beaten United 6-1 at Old Trafford earlier in the season and Ferguson has also praised the way Tottenham play football. Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea are hot on the heels of the top three and United face a tough task in a Lancashire derby against Bolton at home this Saturday.

The United boss has praised the progress of City and Spurs in recent seasons and believes that his side have to keep winning to stay in the hunt for their 13th Premier League title. Ferguson’s side are still seen as one of the main threats for the title and the United boss has reiterated the point that when Easter comes around, the real title contenders will come to the fore.

‘At the moment, it looks like a three horse race between ourselves, Man City and Tottenham but when you come to March and the beginning of April, things can change very, very quickly. You only need to lose a couple of games or lose one game and all of a sudden, maybe when teams have not got the experience to handle what is going on to try and win the League or get into the top four, it can all change’, Ferguson said.
