'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Fergie: Marvellous Chance

Sir Alex Ferguson was in buoyant mood after the 4-2 victory at Goodison Park that seems to have settled the title race in our favour.

Of course it's not over yet but Chelsea need a minor miracle now to turn it around - and Fergie knows this, as he's no stranger to minor miracles.

'I can't explain the game as I didn't think we did that bad, but two goals from two great strikes - in football that can happen,' Ferguson told Sky Sports 1.

'The first had a bit of fortune about it, it got a bit of a deflection past Edwin, but the second was an incredible hit and at that point we were toying with the idea of bringing on Ronaldo - because he is carrying an injury.

'We decided if we get a goal we bring him on and we got the break when the young keeper dropped the ball and John O'Shea has taken it and at that chance I thought we had a chance.

'With Ronaldo coming across, their focus would be on Ronaldo - with Giggs, Scholes, Carrick and Rooney and I think it was waiting to happen.'

'Hopefully that result will pick everyone up, all the players have pains and aches - these players are carrying the banner for us - they are having to do it all themselves and it is great credit they are doing it, and that result today will give them a new benefit for Wednesday.

'The result is significant, we are away to Manchester City next week - in the morning after playing in Milan - and we know what that can do to players, it can be difficult and then we have Chelsea at Stamford Bridge - but I do think the marvellous attitude of the players and the spirit in the camp is going to help us.'

'With Chelsea drawing today, the momentum is obviously back with us.

'A five point lead and a better goal difference it gives us a wonderful chance with three games left, but I think the most important thing is that we are having a go.'

Fergie praised Rooney who grabbed the all-important third goal, labelling him a 'natural fighter'. Wazza missed some chances but got his just reward with the winning goal.
