Derby boss Clough tips Man Utd for five trophies

After being on the end of a 4-1 rout from Manchester United, Derby County boss Nigel Clough has tipped his opponents to complete a quintuple this season. The Red Devils have already made it through to the Carling Cup final against Tottenham next month, are in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup after the win over Derby, are well-placed on top of the Premier League table, are still alive in the Champions League and have already taken the FIFA Club World Cup.

Clough believes it is a realistic goal for Sir Alex Ferguson's men to take the remaining four trophies.

"If anyone can do it they can," claimed Clough.

"If United had played Arsenal, Liverpool or Chelsea in that form they could have put four past them, they were that good.

"We have played against them three times this season now and this was the best they played."
