Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson believes his experienced defensive line and goalkeeper can lead the club to another Premiership.

After the 2-1 win over Liverpool, United jumped back on top of the table with a two-point lead over Arsenal and although Ferguson knows it will be a tough task with their difficult run home, he is counting on the back four along with keeper Edwin van der Sar to help do the job.

“We have a very experienced back four, a very experienced goalkeeper and that gives us a real outstanding chance, albeit with seven difficult matches - but we have all got difficult matches, so what does it matter?” he said.

"No-one is going away. We are all knocking on doors.

"If you look at the run-ins for the teams, it could very well go to the wire."
