4. Sir Alex Ferguson

Odds: 10/1

Clubs managed: East Stirling, St Mirren, Aberdeen, Manchester United

If there is one candidate perfectly suited to overcome Arsenal's hefty 12 point lead then it is the man who has been there and done it all before. Sir Alex Ferguson knows just how to stage a comeback.

Newcastle established the same lead in January of 1996, only for Manchester United to end the season as the champions of the Premier League.

There are short odds indeed being offered on Ferguson performing a Paul Scholes and reversing his decision to retire, but a return for the Old Trafford icon is surely nothing more than pure fantasy.
