Fergie expecting more twists and turns

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is sure that there will be more 'twists and turns' in the Premier League title race as his side face Aston Villa looking to take back the momentum from Man City who beat Norwich 6-1 on Saturday.

• Prem Lge: City hit six
• Mancini: Title race over

United can extend their lead to five points again with a win on Sunday and if they win all of their remaining games then they will finish on their best ever Premier League points total - 94; only a point behind the record 95 set by Chelsea in Jose Mourinho's first campaign.

Ferguson, though, is only looking at it one game at a time.

"I think we'll just concentrate on Sunday's game against Aston Villa," he said. "There's no need to look ahead. If you take care of the next game the rest will take care of itself.

"I don't think Wednesday night [a 1-0 defeat to Wigan] had anything to do with being eight points in front. I honestly believe that if we had been playing any other team but Wigan we would have been all right. It's unusual for teams to keep possession of the ball against us that well, they dominated us in the first half.

"Wigan are playing very well at the moment and I wouldn't be surprised if they beat Arsenal on Monday. If they can get a goal they can win that game. I think if they had a recognised goalscorer they would be comfortably mid-table by now. Roberto Martínez produces teams that play good football. He did it at Swansea and he is sticking to his principles at Wigan. You have to give him credit for that, it's not easy when you're down there in relegation trouble."

Ferguson knows that there will be issues to overcome in the final games, but is confident that his team has what it takes to bounce back.

"You always get twists and turns, it's how you react that's important," he says. "I remember a few years ago when Liverpool beat us 4-1 at Old Trafford. That genius [Rafael] Benitez said they had planned to beat us by playing long balls behind us."

That season United recovered to win the title by four points and Ferguson is sure that the drama is not over yet.

"I think the only time I can remember not dropping points in the run-in was the treble year," Ferguson says. "We went right through from December without losing, but that was unusual. Most years you get twists and turns, and even with five games to play you never think it's all over, because that's what this league is like. Villa are not completely safe yet, so they will be thinking the same way, and when you are looking at away trips to places like Wigan, Manchester City and Sunderland you know you will be in for difficult games.

"Everton at home will not be easy either, they are one of the form teams in the country at the moment, but all we are trying to do for the moment is get back on the winning track against Villa and not look too far ahead. We are in a good position in the league, and compared to the position we were in a few months ago we have to be delighted with the progress we have made."
