Carrick Ignores Drogba & Jose

United midfielder Michael Carrick pays no attention to whatever Didier Drogba might say. The in-form Ivorian striker stated that after their dramatic victory at Everton, Chelsea are now favourites to win the league again, something his manager remarked, too.

'I know we have shown we have what it takes to be champions again, and I think Manchester United know it too,' Drogba revealed. 'They would have been thinking at one stage on Sunday the gap was going to be eight points.

'But now it's only two and I believe this was the most crucial day of the championship race. Of course there are many games to go, many matches to be played and many points to be won or lost. Now though, we have the psychological advantage.'

I must say I agree with him though I never stop hoping. Carrick, of course, does not think weekend's results would be so significant in the title race.

'As a team so far this season, we have done really well and nothing is going to change our mindset,' he said. 'So we don't really take too much notice of what is said.'

'We are two terrific teams and great squads, so it's going to be tight all the way to the game at Chelsea," he added. "Hopefully we can have it tied up by then, but that's probably going to be too good to be true.'

I think we may forgive Carrick his last words: he quickly corrected himself. To have the title tied up in April... no, I cannot think he was serious.
