Ferguson happy to extend lead

Published Add your comment

Sir Alex Ferguson watched Manchester United cruise four points clear at the top of the Barclays Premier League at Wolves and can now put his feet up and await Manchester City's response.

United's 5-0 win not only extended their lead over City, it also cut deep into the Blues goal difference advantage, which now stands at just three. Roberto Mancini's men now play twice before United are in action again, following up Wednesday's encounter with resurgent Chelsea before visiting Stoke next Saturday.

"They (City) have a big game on Wednesday of course," said Ferguson. "Chelsea are back to form so it will be really interesting. The important thing was for us to do our job. There are nine games left and we have to keep whittling them down. Eventually the games run out and hopefully we will achieve what we want."
