Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has welcomed comments from Manchester United rival Sir Alex Ferguson that he'd like to see the Gunners win the title ahead of Chelsea. He said: "We take it with a lot of respect. But we are not naive. It will be interesting this year like it was last year. I will watch the Chelsea v Man United game with a lot of curiosity.
