United ready for New Year title charge
27 December 2011, 13:58
England - Sir Alex Ferguson believes Manchester United will be ideally placed to retain their Premier League title if they reach New Year's Day alongside Manchester City at the top of the table.
Ferguson, who turns 70 on New Year's Eve when his team entertain struggling Blackburn, saw United draw level with City on points after an emphatic 5-0 victory over Wigan at Old Trafford on Boxing Day.
It marked a remarkable recovery from United who, as recently as December 10, trailed City by five points and 17 goals prior to a 4-1 victory over Wolves.
