Gary Neville has conceded a Chelsea win at Bolton will mark the end of Manchester United’s Premiership title challenge.

Ferguson is convinced old mate Sam Allardyce can do United a favour, just as he did in 2003 when Bolton nicked a point off Arsenal which ultimately allowed the Red Devils to snatch the championship out of the Gunners’ grasp. But that 0-0 draw with Sunderland has changed everything.

Neville: ‘If Chelsea were to win on Saturday, you would have to concede we were going to struggle.

‘We are looking at Bolton to give us a glimmer of hope because they have to drop points at some stage over Easter and, while Everton could do something on Monday, Chelsea’s record at Stamford Bridge this season is so good, it is difficult to see it happening.

‘If you look at the situation realistically, it is possible we are going to run out of time.

‘I would love to be able to talk our position up but, at this moment in time, they are in the driving seat and everybody knows it.’
