London, Apr 24 : Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson, who is just seven points away from lifting the Premier League, is not worried over his team playing Arsenal and Chelsea.
And if United beat their only rivals, Arsenal and Chelsea, in their next two games on May 1 and 8, they will be crowned champions with two games still to play.
Ferguson said: “There are only four games left and, yes, we feel like champions. The players have a winning mentality. The way they are going about their business and the effort they are producing gives us an outstanding chance.”
Javier Hernandez’s header ended Everton’s resistance and put United on 73 points, seven short of clinching a record 19th title, the Daily Mail reports.
“It puzzles me that people keep saying we have yet to play Chelsea and Arsenal, as if we’re going to lose those games! Why can’t we win them?
“I’ve told the players to keep their heads down, not get carried away with the situation and keep winning. We showed great perseverance and determination and we played some good football at times and, in the time-honoured fashion of Manchester United, we left it late when we should have had it won much earlier,” Ferguson said.
Ferguson rested several key players ahead of Tuesday''s Champions League semi-final first leg at Schalke, in Germany, and said he had no new injury worries. (ANI)
