Ferguson: Home form critical to PL title ambitions

Manchester United chief Sir Alex Ferguson believes how the Reds perform at Old Trafford will be crucial to their Premier League title dreams. "Our home form has to be 100 per cent to give us an outstanding chance of winning the league," said the Scot.

"In the run-in, you're always going to drop points. We've dropped points in the run-in in the past, but you just hope you don't drop as many points as other teams. That's what it comes down to.

"But, obviously, our home record, which is good, needs to be that again.

"The two games we have in hand gives us the opportunity to close the gap on those clubs at the top. Those two games are at home and it's important we take advantage of that.

"But the first thing is to win Sunday's game (against Chelsea). That's the one that can set us on our way."
