Teamwork pays off

"I don't mind the 1-0s. It tells you we're determined, we're going to defend, do the right things and play as a team."

- Sir Alex Ferguson

Sir Alex welcomes one-nils

"I know that. You know that. The experienced players know that. The crowd still don't know that and they've been watching us for 100 years! They still get nervous when we're not finishing teams off but we should've finished them off."

A three-point lead means United are on course to make history again come May but the manager is taking nothing for granted.

"I'd take it at any time in the season," he said about the difference at the top. "When you look back a few months ago, we were seven points behind [Manchester] City. The area where we are concerned is goal difference but winning is obviously important and, if we keep winning, we have a great chance."
