Sir Alex Ferguson's teams have penchant for late goals, and a never-say-die spirit that could serve United well as the title race reaches its climax.
The title is Chelsea’s to lose, but should the Reds be chasing a result to move above Carlo Ancelotti’s men, United have good pedigree for hitting last-gasp winners. That was reiterated on Saturday at Old Trafford when victory was achieved with two goals in the last ten minutes against Tottenham Hotspur.
The key, according to Reds midfielder Darren Fletcher, is not losing your composure, and staying true to United’s patient, passing style.
“The manager said before the Spurs game that it might go down to the last ten minutes,” explains Fletcher. “We keep believing in the way we play. We don’t get desperate. We throw players forward but the play isn’t desperate, it’s not just long balls into the box.
