Fergie Vows To Topple Jose

Fergie Vows To Topple Jose

Sir Alex Ferguson is determined to take the Premiership title off Jose Mourinho next season.

Chelsea are looking for a third successive title, but the United boss will demand his side spoils the fun at Stamford Bridge.

Ferguson: 'We've got to ask Chelsea more questions next season, for our own pride.

'Manchester United have been the dominant force in the Premier League since it started, no question about that.

'Eight championships is a phenomenal record and something we want to maintain and get back into the winning circle again.

'Chelsea dropped two points at home and you look back at all the teams that have won the championship and that's exceptional.

'We did lose at home to Blackburn and we drew five games so we have to make sure this is a place where we get points. That's the starting point.

'The start of the season was a nightmare.

'It stops your momentum and therefore that consistency you need early season to get a run and get confidence in the camp is denied us.

'This season started with Louis Saha getting injured in training, and that was him out until November.

'Quinton Fortune was injured in a training session a week before the season started and he was out for the season, but we handled that and started August very well.

'Then Roy (Keane) got his metatarsal injury and Gaby Heinze got his knee injury, Gary Neville missed the start of the season with his groin, so there you've got five players, half a team, missing before the end of September.'
