Ferguson Says City Have Title Initiative
Article info

Manchester United’s calamitous 4-4 draw with Everton in England’s Premier League on Sunday opened up the title race, and their boss Sir Alex Ferguson believes Manchester City have the advantage now.

The Red Devils boss has, of course, been in this situation before and will be playing a few mind games, but his comments do appear a bit rich considering they hold a three-point buffer at the top still.

Of course, City play host to United next week in the second derby of the campaign and Ferguson believes that will decide the title.

“We’ve given (Manchester City) the initiative, there’s no doubt about that,” he told Sky Sports.

“It makes the game at the Etihad a real important game. It’s the decider really. We make it hard for ourselves as we normally do. But we have to go there knowing that we’re capable of getting a result.

“We need to get a result now at the Etihad, there’s no question about that. We need to perform. There’s no reason why we can’t do that but there’s almost an expectancy from City that this could be their decider, but it’s our decider too.

“There will be a reaction, alright, there’s no question about that. Next Monday against City, it’s always a derby game of the highest proportions, and this won’t be any different. Yes, [it’s] definitely (the most important of my career). Game on.”
