Manchester United football manager backs his side for title

20th April 2011 - Chad Lazarus

Manchester United football manager Sir Alex Ferguson is still confident his side will end the season as Premier League champions, despite dropping points last night (April 19th).

The Red Devils could only manage to draw 0-0 with Newcastle at St James' Park, but football manager Ferguson points out that Arsenal only managed to draw on Sunday (April 17th) against Liverpool.

"We are in a better position than we were on Saturday. We have played one less game and are in the same position we were with Arsenal with five games left," he said.

Wayne Rooney returned to the side for United and missed a good chance to open the scoring, as did veteran Welsh midfielder Ryan Giggs.

Arsenal are now seven points behind United at the top of the table, with Chelsea lurking two points behind the Gunners.

Both of the London sides play tonight (April 20th), with Chelsea hosting Birmingham at Stamford Bridge and Arsenal facing a derby with bitter rivals Tottenham at White Hart Lane.
