Alex Ferguson bigs up Chelsea

Despite their stuttering start, Alex Ferguson says that he thinks that Chelsea will be in the hunt for the Premier League title come the end of the season. This will come as a bit of a shock to Chelsea fans themselves, who have seen their team labour to beat West Bromwich Albion at home, and generally not look like anything as good as Manchesters City or United.

'They will be there at the end of the season, there is no doubt about that,' he said. 'At the moment, of course, the two Manchester teams are enjoying the publicity that comes from the predictions that they are going to be involved in the winning of the league.

'In the background lurks Chelsea. They don't need the publicity. They will be enjoying being out of the profile at the moment. It will be a fantastic game. The games between both sides over the last seven years have been very close affairs. There is usually just one goal in it and it will be very tight on Sunday again.'
