The Red Devils suffered derby defeat to Manchester City last time out, but remain 12 points clear at the summit heading into Sunday's trip to Stoke City.

United need just 10 points to get their hands on the top-flight crown, but Ferguson has called on his players to finish with a flourish and embark on a perfect run.

He said: "We know what we have to do to win the league and we have got a group of players who can do that.

"We can win our last seven games, there's no question about that. The great thing is that the consistency we have shown this season has been terrific.

"That's a challenge we have now. The expectation here is to win every game. People putting bets on over the weekend see Manchester United as a banker. That's a fact of life.

"It doesn't worry me. It's fine. We know what we have to do.

"Losing to City makes the players aware they have to get their fingers out and make sure we don't lose any more games.

"But it feels different from last season. We lost the league last season through carelessness. We were 4-2 up against Everton and drew. That was careless. If we had won that game, we would have won the league."

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
