Ferguson: Manchester United must find their "killer instinct"
Manchester United news: Sir Alex Ferguson wants his side to be more ruthless in killing off their opponents
Despite Manchester United being in a very commanding position to regain the Premier League title, currently holding a staggering 12 point lead over fierce rivals Manchester City, Ferguson is still eyeing improvement from his players.
Having crashed out of the Champions League at the hands of Real Madrid and then subsequently failing to capitalise on a 2-0 advantage versus Chelsea in their FA Cup quarter final, the recent red hot form of Ferguson’s Devils seems to be cooling off.
Ferguson told the club's official website: "Where I think we can improve is that we don't seem to kill teams off,"
"We've beaten Wigan 4-0 on two occasions but those are the only matches we've won by that sort of margin. In a normal season, I'd expect a few more wins by that sort of distance. Last year, we won 5-0 against Wolves, Wigan, Bolton and Fulham, and we beat Arsenal 8-2, of course.
"We're not seeing those results this season, however. We haven't hit those heights. Hopefully, there's more to come and we'll discover that killer instinct that our teams in the past have had."
Although United have been commanding the Premier League throughout the season and have even surpassed their best ever points tally at this stage in the season, it's hard to blame Ferguson for wanting to, atleast match the results of the season past.
The strike force at Ferguson’s disposal consisting of Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney, Javier Hernandez and Danny Welbeck rivals that of any other team in the world and is potentially the best Ferguson has ever fashioned.
