Ferdinand enjoying Man Utd title charge
Sir Alex Ferguson's men know even if Chelsea win their game in hand against cash-strapped Portsmouth at Fratton Park on Wednesday, they will still be a point better off than the Londoners, who must visit Old Trafford on April 3.
Arsenal are currently two points adrift, but with a significantly inferior goal difference to the leaders.
"This is probably the best title run-in for years," said the England defender.
"There are three teams in it, which makes it fantastic for the fans and the neutrals to watch.
"But we just want to finish on top. That is what we are aiming to do."
