Sir Alex Ferguson admitted for the first time in 2007 that we have harder away games left than Chelsea. That should not be a worry.

United are yet to face Tottenham (this weekend), Liverpool, Manchester City and most notably, Chelsea who have a lot easier schedule. Our away form hasn’t been good in recent weeks so that must be a concern but Ferguson issued a rallying call to his players.

‘We have got to be ready for the difficult tasks because challenges are what winning a championship are all about. We go into it knowing we have to perform to the highest level and if we can continue as we are the moment it improves our chances.

‘In my experience we have never been handed titles, we have had to go and win them, and we have to do that again. Analysing all the games is pointless really. We have got a tough game on Sunday and if we get through that it is one more up the road.’

I fear we might rue those late goals against Arsenal… if we do not defeat Tottenham, it will be ‘squeaky bum-time’, to quote an immortal.
