Ferguson Believes 84 Points Will Do It!

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson believes 84 points will secure them the Premier League title, which means they will need another 30 points from their remaining 14 games.

The Reds could set a club record of 30 games unbeaten today, if things go their way against a struggling Wolves side, that have only won six games out of a possible 24.

Ferguson said: “Consistency is the key and over the last two months it has been very good. Consistency is the thing that gives you the extra yard or extra belief.

“They trust each other. You have to trust each other. They can look around the dressing room and we have some battled-hardened professionals who have been through the course many many times.

“We are going to find that in the run-in there are going to be some interesting games for Manchester United. We have a little lead but that can vanish overnight.

“Manchester City are in a challenging position in that top four. . Chelsea, Arsenal, ourselves and Tottenham, we are all in there battling.

“Our job is to retain that consistency and relish what we are going to experience. This is a great time to play football knowing you have an opportunity to win the league.”

Manchester United were the last team to win the league with lower then 84 points – back in the 2002/2003 season, United finished five points clear of runners up, Arsenal. That was probably Ruud van Nistelrooy’s best season in a red shirt scoring 25 goals in the Premier League.
