As the title race heats up ahead of the upcoming showdown between Manchester United and Chelsea, Sir Alex Ferguson is starting his trade-mark mind-games. This weekend Chelsea beat Tottenham and Arsenal beated United meaning the Blues are only three points behind the Red Devils. Chelsea can move to the top of the league if they beat United with only two games of the season left after that.
The Guardian reported Ferguson complaining about the referee’s decision making after the Arsenal game. He said: “we’re not going to get the decisions in these big games, I’m afraid”.
The comment was in reaction to Michael Owen not being awarded a penalty after being stamped on in the penalty area by Gael Clichy.
He then spoke about the Chelsea game which the Blues won under controversial circumstances, a goal in which the ball did not seem to cross the line and another where the scorer was in an offside position.
“They got great decisions for them on Saturday and they seem to get these decisions at the moment. They got one to win the league last season at Old Trafford. So that’s a worry. You go into a game worrying about these things. But in terms of ability, a game at Old Trafford … the league at stake … our supporters will be ready for it and so will my players”.
With only three games left in the season the clash between Chelsea and United at Old Trafford could be the deciding game of the season.
