Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is confident his side can secure their 19th league title despite only drawing with Newcastle United at St James's Park.
The stalemate leaves United seven points clear of second placed Arsenal, and nine clear of third placed Chelsea, with both sides having a game in hand on Wednesday night against Tottenham Hotspur and Birmingham City respectively.
And Ferguson is happy with United's position.
"I'm confident we'll be fine now as that was a hard one to get over," Ferguson said.
"At this stage of the season, we're in a better position than we were on Saturday as there's one less game and five games left.
"I think you've got to look at Chelsea also and how they respond to three home games in a row.
There's two important games coming up - obviously Arsenal away and Chelsea at home. But we've got a better goal difference than Chelsea and I think we're in a better position today."
United host Everton this weekend, before a visiting Arsenal and playing Chelsea at Old Trafford, games that will a long way to deciding the destiny of the Barclays Premier League.
The club need just one more title to eclipse the 18 won by Liverpool.
