Ferguson has said the he is aiming to win the treble again this season.

"There is no point in being negative, let's enjoy it.

"We have a good squad of players and are playing some terrific football."

He even expects the team to improve in the second part of the season.

"We need to achieve consistency over the second half of the campaign," he added

"Historically we do okay at this point. In the past, even if we have been erratic earlier in the season, we seem to have drawn a second wind.

"I am sure our present position will drive us on even more. We are pleased to be where we are.

"We are here for the long haul plus we have youth and strength on our side. We are fully capable of winning the championship."

However he's too wise to write Chelsea off in the title race.

"Chelsea will come back at us. The key is our own form and what we do ourselves.

"If we do it right, we do not need to keep looking over our shoulder."
