Manchester United Face Local Rivals
Barclays Premier League leaders Manchester United prepare to take on Owen Coyle’s Bolton Wanderers outfit at Reebok Stadium this Saturday. Sir Alex Ferguson´s players come into this encounter on the back of a highly impressive 8–2 trashing against fellow title challengers Arsenal at Old Trafford, while Bolton were beaten to the tune of 3–1 by a quick and strong Liverpool side at Anfield Road in their last league match.
Sir Alex Ferguson: “I think that you could say that five or six teams will be involved. It is always hard to win the English Premier League. It is a league that if you look at it, in the south you have the London teams like Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea and then you have Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool in the north. It is a really, really difficult league to win. You have to try and build a team that will last for a good few seasons. Manchester United have done that quite successfully over the years. This is another example of trusting the young players and giving them opportunities.”
