With just nine games left to play, Manchester United are top of the table. Rio Ferdinand says we’re exactly where we want to be and the players are aiming to win all of their remaining games. Without any cup distractions, this plan may be more achievable than you might think.

“We’re in the position at the minute that we want to be,” said Rio. “We want to be top at this stage of the season, but more importantly we want to remain there until the end of the season. I think this is a vital period, each game is a must-win game. At the moment, if we win all of our remaining games until the end of the season, we will be champions. That’s what we’re going out to do.”
