With the race for the title looking like it could be among the tightest in Prem history, Fergie is hoping for a helping hand from the Gunners.

Manchester United currently sit third in the Premier League standings, six points adrift of leaders Liverpool - although with a game in hand - as the ever-important holiday fixtures approach.

The Red Devils have taken only a single point from the Big Four rivals this season, but manager Sir Alex Ferguson is confident of catching the front-runners.

He said in The Sun: “Our losses at Arsenal and Liverpool were disappointing but we've got the away games against our rivals out of the way. I'm sure we can make up ground.â€

The Gunners, meanwhile, sit in fourth place after a tumultuous start to the campaign which has seen them drop points against relative minnows such as Stoke City, Hull City and Fulham.

But after their recent leadership reshuffle Arsene Wenger's men seem to be back on track. They claimed three points at Stamford Bridge two weekends ago, thus knocking Chelsea off the top of the table.

And Ferguson is hoping the London giants can replicate that sort of form not only when they face the Blues again, but also when they play home and away against the high-flying Merseysiders.

He said: “What we want now is for Arsenal to beat Liverpool and Chelsea. They have just won at Chelsea but they have still got to play them at home and they have got two games to play against Liverpool.â€

As the men from Anfield are putting up easily their best title-fight since Rafael Benitez took charge of the club, some are predicting a three- or even four-horse race.

The United boss is one of those expects things to be a little less predictable than usual when May rolls around, and he has pointed at the increased depth of competition in England's top tier.

Ferguson said: “In the past, it has always come down to two teams but I don't think that'll be the case this season.

“I expect the big four to take it right to the wire. The improvement by other teams has made it much harder to go away from home and pick up points — just look at the results Stoke and Hull enjoyed against Arsenal.â€

Arsenal have shown a huge leap in the performances when they face a big 4 team and a normal team

they beat us at home without half of their team that was a big surprise
but beating Chelsea at home isn't a surprise Chelsea are no longer the same team they used to be and they will not win the league this season coz scolari is **** manager

i hope Arse beat Liverpool home and away and lose against us in Old Trafford
