Ferguson was happy with the performance yesterday and was obviously pleased to win.

"We are playing well, our form is terrific, and I'm pleased,"

"There is plenty for us to navigate but hopefully we have the ability. I don't see why we can't do it.

"We had fantastic opportunities but at other times we had to fight and scrap. City are such a big team and you have to deal with that. They are difficult to play against.

"Van der Sar had two great saves to make and we had to earn the right to win."

"We showed great determination when it really mattered and finished the game off."

Ferguson will be an Arsenal fan for the afternoon today.

He said: "We can relax and watch the game and support the Gunners.

"It will be a tight game, a hard game between two great sides. Hopefully we will be in a better position after the match."
