Man Utd boss Ferguson rates Arsenal's kids

Sir Alex Ferguson believes that Arsenal's young players are good enough to stop Manchester United from retaining the Barclays Premier League title this season.

Players such as Cesc Fabregas, Robin van Persie and Denilson have caught Ferguson's eye and the United boss believes that Arsene Wenger's team are good enough to stop United from winning their tenth Premier League title.

"The title race is still open, but Arsenal have made a great start and you can't deny that," Ferguson said. "And in Arsene Wenger they have a manager who has been there before and they also have the players who done it as well. Kolo Toure and Gilberto Silva know how to win the title, so the inexperience of some of their younger players won't be a handicap.

"Some of the youngsters haven't experienced it before, but the same could be said of some of our players last year and we led the Premiership for three-quarters of a season. We have missed players this season through injury, but we have got on with it and won games, so everything is coming together well."
