Chelsea Are Not 'In Control'
United dropped two points at Blackburn Rovers today and, coupled with our defeat to Chelsea last Saturday, we are now one point behind the Blues having played a game more. Sir Alex conceded that we are massive outsiders to win the league now.
"It`s going to be very, very difficult to win this league now.'
"We`ll have a lifeline if Chelsea blow it, but in their eyes they have an easy game against Bolton on Tuesday. They`ll expect to win that and that would put them four points clear.'
And they will win that, no doubt. They have recovered from their Champions League exit and are now flying at a crucial stage of the campaign. Therefore it's not going to be difficult to win the league: it's going to be utterly impossible for United. We have lost it, get over it. We lost it last Saturday, as a matter of fact. Even today's game was only a mere formality. Chelsea are not in control - they are Champions.
