Ferguson warns rivals that Man Utd will not take their foot off the gas

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has warned title rivals Manchester City that now his team have regained the Premiership summit they will not crack on the run-in.

"We have that experience and it does help," said the United boss.

"We won't get nervous.

"Against West Brom we kept playing our football even at 1-0 when the fans were thinking 'just get us a second'.

"It didn't concern the players one bit. It is good to see that kind of temperament."

Victories over Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham, in addition to a three-goal comeback that clinched a point at Chelsea, has turned United into favourites.

"We felt if we came through those tough away fixtures we would be setting ourselves up for the rest of the season," added Ashley Young.

"We have managed to do that and now our home form is key.

"A lot of people might not have thought we would be in front of City but we have that belief.

"As long as we are winning our games, the pressure is on them."
