Sir Alex Ferguson says Chelsea had better enjoy the end to this league campaign, because next season will be a different story.

Ferguson knows failure to become the first side to beat Chelsea on their own patch in the Premiership since Jose Mourinho arrived at the club will give the Blues back-to-back championships.

Chelsea have won an incredible 17 of their 18 home matches in the league this season.

Ferguson: ‘Our aim tomorrow is to get the win which would eke the whole thing out a bit longer.

‘But our form over the last two or three months has told me, and my players, and all the other teams about us that we will be there next year. There is no doubt about it.

‘I am very optimistic about the future. In terms of our overall squad, it is as strong as I have ever had.

‘If we get a reasonable bill of health, we must have a massive chance because I have no doubt, had we not suffered so many injuries at the start of the season, we would have been there this season.’
