Sir Alex Ferguson believes the winner when Manchester United travel to Chelsea on 26th April will end up lifting the Premiership trophy. It seems the Scot thinks it's now a two-horse race.
United and Chelsea both emerged victorious on Sunday, defeating Liverpool and Arsenal respectively.
The Red Devils are now five points clear at the top of the league, but it now the Blues, not the Gunners, who are in second place.
Chelsea The Real Threat
United must still face Arsenal at Old Trafford, but boss Ferguson seems more worried about next month's trip to west London to face Chelsea.
â€œI have said all along that Chelsea hold the key because they had to play Arsenal at home and we still have to go to Stamford Bridge," said Fergie.
â€œThey have a formidable home record so we know how tough it is going to be down there," continued Fergie of the Bridge, where Chelsea haven't lost at home domestically for four years. "It will be a big factor in determining who wins the title.
We have a nice cushion but there are some very difficult games to come - so no one can say we are certain to win the title," added Fergie, who nevertheless knows that a draw at the Bridge will be enough - as long as United continue to pick up results elsewhere. "The team that shows real consistency over these closing games will be champions and, hopefully, we will do that," he added.
Two seasons ago Chelsea wrapped up the title with a 3-0 win over United at the Bridge, while last season's league clash between the pair came after the Red Devils had secured their first championship since 2003.
