Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson expects rivals to slip up

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson believes that the club's Premier League rivals will drop points in the race for the title.

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson believes that the Red Devils can keep their dominance over the Premier League by relying on their rivals to drop points.

The North-West outfit currently sit five points ahead of fierce competitors Manchester City, who dramatically snatched the title from United's clutches last season.

"Teams will drop points [in the title race]," Ferguson told the club's official website. "Not just us but Manchester City will drop points, absolutely, it's a certainty Chelsea and Arsenal will drop points.

"We'll probably drop two or three ourselves but the important thing is accepting the challenge that every game is just as difficult as the rest."

United take on Southampton this weekend.
