Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes admits that, while his own team remain top priority, he can't help but look out for the progress of Arsenal and Chelsea...
Scholes admits that his concentration has wavered at time to time due to the hectic fixture list, not to mention the challenge from his side's title rivals.
The veteran told Red View newsletter, "Whether or not it's right to do, you look at games coming up.
"You have to focus on one game at a time, but you do tend to look ahead. You watch opponents' matches, too.
"That's the nature of being in a title race. It's that time of the season where you watch every game hoping your rival drops points."
A case in point was Arsenal's draw at Wigan Athletic's JJB Stadium.
"That was a really good result for us," he beamed.
"The pitch was horrendous and Arsenal had just had a really tough game in Milan, but we have to be pleased with the outcome."
Next up for the Red Devils is Derby County, who, despite being dead last in the league, cannot be taken lightly.
"We've got the experience to know we must do the business. If we do that, we've got a great chance to win the league," concluded the 33-year-old.
A one-club man, Scholes has played well in excess of 400 games for Manchester United since his senior debut in 1994.
