Sat six points clear, there`s no doubt we are favourites, although it is early doors, for the Premier League title.
A lot can happen over the coming months, form can dip and team scan string together a run of results that throws the title race right open.
However, Patrice Evra, talking to the media, is probably quite right when he remarks,
"We`ll be sacked if we blow it again."
"I think Ferguson is going to sack everyone if we let slip another lead. No, I`m serious. It would not be funny for the fans, players, for everyone."
"The league is not finished yet, there is a long way to go, but now we have to be make sure we are really ready for the Sunderland match next."
"I`m not saying going six points clear is so important because I remember what happened last year. We were eight points clear and in the end we lost the league."
"But it was more important to win at City and give a sign out to them. We also broke their unbeaten record at home, which was really important."
"Psychologically, it was really important to win against City."
It was and if we can add to Sunderland`s recent misery by turning them over as well, things will continue to look rosy!
