Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has admitted the Barclays Premier League title race is back on.

On Sunday evening it seemed to be in the bag for United, who had opened up an eight-point lead with six games remaining over a Manchester City side apparently imploding under Roberto Mancini. But by Thursday morning there had been a significant shift in fortunes thanks to Wigan's shock win over United on Wednesday as the Blues defeated West Brom 4-0.

As City are in action first this weekend, United's lead could be down to just two points by kick-off of Sunday's encounter with Aston Villa, and Ferguson said: "The race is back on isn't it?. They [City] have a chance don't they? They haven't been playing well, they've said that, but a 4-0 win is a good result at this time of the season."
