From the MEN:

‘[b]The Premiership[/]: I think the title race is still wide open, even though United must be kicking themselves for slipping up the way they did over Christmas.

With Chelsea coming to Old Trafford next weekend that should sort things out as far as they are concerned, and we have all seen that Arsenal are not infallible.

As for Liverpool they have gone, and it is up to United to show what they can do.

[b]The Champions' League[/b]: The toughest nut to crack. It is the only one that worries me.

It is not that United are not good enough, but clubs like Real Madrid and AC Milan look at things in a different way to the English. They seem to have set their stalls out to go for the big one.

They are not interested in anything else but winning the Champions' League or qualifying for it next season. With Milan topping Serie A and Madrid breathing down the neck of Real Sociedad in Spain both are bang on target and could spoil things for Fergie .

[b]The FA Cup[/b]: United will not have a better chance of getting through to the fifth round than a home draw against West Ham. I fancy The Reds to go all the way and make it to Cardiff twice.

[b]The Worthington Cup[/b]: I know United wobbled against Blackburn on Tuesday, but I honestly feel they can still do it.

Let me put it this way, if both teams play to their best at Ewood Park who would you fancy? Any below par performance could prove costly but I think we are in for an all United final.'
