Sunderland vs Manchester United: ManU Coach Ferguson Says League Still Open to All Big Four

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is reluctant to accept the view that the ongoing English premier league is now a two horse race that indicates only Arsenal and Manchester Untied are up for the league title. Rather, he thinks that the league is still open to all of the big fours. Alex Ferguson has talked about the league standing after his team’s 2-1 victory over Everton last weekend.

Manchester United is now within a point of league leader Arsenal who stands atop with 43 points from 18 matches so far in EPL this season. Manchester Untied has been breathing on Arsenal’s neck for the last few weeks after Arsenal’s shocking 1-2 defeat to Middlesbrough. Chelsea now stands third in the league point table with 37 points, while Liverpool secures the fifth place with 33 points and playing a match less.

Manchester United will face Sunderland at the Boxing Day in Sunderland. Though the match seems to be a low profile match, Manchester United is very cautious ahead of the match as they do not afford any slip off remaining within a point of league leader Arsenal. Ahead of the match, Manchester United players will not go for all out Christmas celebration. The club has decided to allow players meet their relatives in the morning but the players have to be back by afternoon.

According to Alex Ferguson, among the big four, no one is out of the race. He thinks any of the big four can lift the trophy. However, he has said that he never gives up on this team considering the previous performances of Manchester Untied. Yes, Manchester Untied is one of the strong contenders of the title of this season as well. They will try their best to defend their premier league title.

Now, let us see if Manchester Untied can come up with an inspirational victory on the Boxing Day match against Sunderland.
