Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher has joined Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson in writing off Chelsea's title threat.

"We finished fourth last season, but we have overtaken Chelsea and Arsenal and even though everyone at the club understands that it's not over yet by a long way, at the moment it looks like it is going to be us and Manchester United for the title," the Liverpool defender said.

"Just by overtaking Chelsea and Arsenal in the challenge is an achievement in itself, so everyone should be proud of that. Now, hopefully, we can go one step farther and win this title."
