Rio: Nobody Will Win The League

Rio: Nobody Will Win The League

Rio Ferdinand admitted it would be a massive clash this weekend at the Emirates but it won't decide the title race.

The reigning champions take on the feigning pretenders... ok, I'll leave these phrases in the dustbin where they belong. So, United will play Arsenal: two sides playing enthralling football are expected to produce a real cracker. They might do that but it won't decide anything.

Rio Ferdinand told MUTV about these things and much more.

'A win at the Emirates would be a great marker to put down, although I don't think it will determine where the league is going to go.

'There's only a handful of games gone - but we need to make sure we give a good account of ourselves. We need to make sure we get the points and stay at the top of the league.

'It's a massive game but no matter who wins it will not be a case of 'They're going to win the league' or even 'They'll be the favourites'.'


I would add that if any team goes on and collapses spectacularly to lose 11-0 then that particular side might be safely considered being absolutely out of the title race. But of course that won't happen.

Massive game, yeah. Everyone tells us that despite all its importance it is only a game. Almunia, Rio... but you can bet that their pulse is quicker than usual and there will be gritted teeth and passionate fight on the pitch. (The gritted teeth won't be on the pitch of course, their owners will be but I think that's obvious).

So roll on Saturday!
