Amazingly in his 25th season as Manchester United manager, Sir Alex Ferguson is still hungrier than ever to win his 13th league title, but he knows all too well that his three point advantage over rivals City is only a very slender lead.
He has been in these situations enough times in his career to know exactly how to finish the job off and he hasn't failed too many times. His experience of winning titles is the reason why many bookmakers have United down as winning the title, but the experience of his players is also a huge factor and people who bet with Bet Victor will need to remember this.
Since Paul Scholes made a sensational comeback to playing after he retired at the end of last season, United haven't lost a game he has played in. He has given the team that balance and creativity and controlled the games in the same way he was doing ten years ago. It is incredible to see how he is still head and shoulders above most other premier league players and his influence has been priceless. People placing a Victor Chandler bet will have been stunned by his efforts.
The likes of Scholes, Giggs, Ferdinand all have unrivalled experience when it comes to winning the league, and the likes of Rooney, Evra, Vidic and Carrick are also hugely experienced. This is what will really count going into the last eight games of the season. The young players will look around and be guided by the senior players who have been there, done that and got the medal, and feel relaxed and focused on the job in hand.
On the other hand, you fear that Manchester City although have experienced players with great quality, there aren't any real Premier League winners in their squad, which may be a telling factor.
Despite this, Sir Alex Ferguson is remaining wise to what can still happen, saying "We all know that football can turn around and bite you, and the small advantage they hold can change in one game".
It all makes for another great weekend of Premier League football with both sides desperate for a win.
