Considering that after 3 stages, the teams from the first 6 positions are pretty close to each other, the season 2011-2012 of Premier League is a disputed one. Manchester United is playing close to perfection, trying to demonstrate that they are worthy of the last year title.
Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson, is confident in their chances regarding this season but is fully aware that “the crown” is threatened. In Ferguson’s opinion, the biggest threat in the title race this season is Chelsea. He believes Chelsea will be up there challenging as he has a lot of respect for their experienced squad.
“They have tremendous experience with the likes of Frank Lampard, Didier Drogba, Petr Cech, John Terry, Alex, Nicolas Anelka, Fernando Torres – there aren’t any young kids in that team. But they don’t have 36 or 37-year-olds like Ryan Giggs. Lampard and Drogba are 33, Anelka is 32 – not dissimilar to Carrick and Rio Ferdinand, and we wouldn’t be saying they are dead and buried, would we? They’ll still be a big threat and we expect them to challenge.” were Ferguson’s words.
The face off will take place later this month and everybody is ready. The foggy situation is in Manchester’s camp because Ferguson said that he doesn’t know too much about Villas-Boas:
“He has a different set-up there to me, but I’m sure he’ll get plenty of advice from others and he’ll do fine. I don’t know much about him.”
