Ferguson promises United offensive
Sir Alex Ferguson has insisted that Manchester United will travel to the Etihad Stadium on Monday going all out for the win.
Manchester City have closed the gap at the top of the table to just three points with three games to go and have home advantage in the derby match that will go a long way to deciding the title race. Punters looking to use their free bet will have noted that City will go above their arch rivals on goal difference if they were to win on Monday, despite boss Roberto Mancini insisting that the title has already gone. Ferguson insists that his players have not taken note of their opponents opinions and are fully focused on securing the three points. "Roberto wants to take the pressure off his own players," Ferguson told United's official website. "It won't affect our approach or our attitude to the game. We know the situation we're in. "We're in a better position than Manchester City. We could come out with two results, whereas they have to win. Although you know this club's attitude - we'll be trying to win. "You would have to be a confirmed masochist to enjoy it. But we are looking forward to it and the players will be fully prepared for it." Following the derby, United host Swansea before finishing the campaign with a trip to Sunderland, while City travel to Newcastle before entertaining QPR.
