Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed Chelsea are the team Manchester United are aiming for after the Red Devils completed an impressive weekend for last season's top two by putting three goals past Newcastle.

Forty-eight hours after the double winners scored six against West Brom, United put another newly-promoted team to the sword with Dimitar Berbatov, Darren Fletcher and Ryan Giggs, who extended his run of scoring in every Premier League season, scoring in a 3-0 win.

"We will be up there again but Chelsea are the team to beat and we are focused on that," said Ferguson.

"We are pleased to have won 3-0 but goals could come into it.

"Chelsea won it by a landslide last season and we are conscious of that and there are goals in our team as well."

United will continue to score as long as Paul Scholes continues in his current vein of good form.

Man-of-the-match in last week's Community Shield win over Chelsea, Scholes followed up with a similarly impressive display.

"We sometimes beat ourselves up about standards," said Ferguson on Monday night. "There is still a lot of good in the game and Paul Scholes produced some of it tonight.

"You do not lose what he has got. He has a marvellous range of passing and his vision is still good.

"And anyone who gets to that age and retains that appetite is blessed with something special."
