Man Utd boss Ferguson: We won't bottle title race like last season

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is confident they won't bottle this season's title race.

United blew an eight-point lead with six games to go last season, but Ferguson has warned his stars there can be no repeat.

And he has told his rivals that he does not expect United to drop more than THREE points in their final 15 games - which means they could not be overtaken at the top.

"We're not taking anything for granted," said the United boss.

"We've got Southampton, then we go to Fulham and then it's ­Everton at home. These are big games, massive games.

"Teams will drop points. Not just us but Manchester City will drop points, absolutely. It's a ­certainty Chelsea and Arsenal will drop points.

"We'll probably drop two or three ourselves, but the important thing is accepting the challenge that every game is just as difficult as the rest."
