Sir Alex Ferguson has no doubts Manchester United will go on to claim a record 19th league title if they beat Chelsea at Old Trafford on Sunday.
Should United triumph over Carlo Ancelotti's men, they would still require a point from their final two games against Blackburn and Blackpool to achieve their objective.
But compared to beating a side that has claimed 25 points from their last 27, Ferguson regards that as a minor inconvenience, which is why he made eight changes to his starting line-up for Wednesday's Champions League semi-final decider with Schalke. Ferguson said: "Everyone is aware of the magnitude of Sunday's game."
He added: "If we win, we should win the league.
"It is a game we are looking forward to. Last Sunday's result (at Arsenal) has certainly brought us an awareness of how important this week's game is.
"It is one of the reasons why I picked the team I did on Wednesday. I wanted to give us a real chance.
"We will have a fresh team on Sunday and that makes a difference at this time of the season.
"It should be a fantastic game."
Ferguson has confirmed Wayne Rooney will be fit to play after resting a minor hamstring complaint in midweek.
However, midfielder Darren Fletcher is not going to start, even though he returned from a two-month absence with a virus by making a 20-minute substitute appearance in midweek.
