Sir Alex shrugs off Mourinho jibes

Sir Alex Ferguson is convinced Manchester United can ram Jose Mourinho's taunts back down the Chelsea manager's throat this season.

Mourinho emerged from last weekend's title battle at Old Trafford declaring his side now held all the aces in the race for the Premiership.

In pointing out United have now played remainder of the big four - Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea - on home soil, Mourinho stated he was content the Stamford Bridge outfit had the easier run-in and their present position three points behind the Red Devils made them favourites to complete a hat-trick of Premiership triumphs.

As a master of psychology himself, Ferguson can spot a mind game coming a long way off. And he simply points to the league table as evidence United's challenge is going to be sustained throughout the entire campaign.

'Jose can make his comments and predictions,' Ferguson told MUTV.

'But why should I worry about what he is saying? We have all the answers, we are doing it on the pitch.

'All I know is our form has been terrific and we were a better team than Chelsea last week.'

Although Ferguson's squad remains weak compared with the riches Mourinho has at his disposal, the Scot has started to address the problem by announcing the arrival of Henrik Larsson on a short-term loan from January 1.

And, while the Red Devils have seven league games to play - starting with this evening's clash at Middlesbrough - before Larsson is available, Ferguson is confident his team will still be top when the Swede arrives.

'I hear all this nonsense about who is going to be top,' he smiled.

'On January 1, we will all know where we stand in terms of winning the league.

'By then, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be back, as will Park Ji-Sung and we will also have Henrik, so our squad will be stronger.

'The spirit in the place is fantastic. We are playing great football and we are defending better than we have in my entire time at this club.

'We will still be at the top when Henrik comes - don't worry about that.'
