Gary Neville has revealed that ahead of kick-off on Saturday, Sir Alex Ferguson questioned the desire of the players to go out and win the league.

United went on to beat City whilst Chelsea lost to Tottenham Hotpsur, putting us within one point of the top.

“The manager asked us if we still wanted to win the championship and we do,” said Neville. “While we still have a chance to win it, we have to go for it. The fundamental thing we have to focus on is winning our remaining three games rather than concerning ourselves with other teams. Too many times this season we haven’t done our job when we have been thinking about possible scenarios in the table. We have to get those points on the board because it doesn’t matter what Chelsea or Arsenal do if we don’t win our games.”
