Ferguson hints at turning point

Man Utd boss Sir Alex Ferguson
Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson refused to get carried away after the 2-0 win over Arsenal but said it could be the season's turning point.

"Maybe the media put more emphasis on the game than there really was but it was an important victory," he said.

"It's a great boost - when you're drawing too many games it's important to get back on the winning trail.

"Hopefully it's a turning point. If we work this hard and I can pick the same team consistently we'll get results."

Ferguson claimed he had not seen the contentious penalty incident that handed his side the lead - where Sol Campbell brought down Wayne Rooney.

He said: "I've not seen it but if you're brought down in the penalty box, it's a penalty kick - I think.

"The referee had an impossible job. It seemed like Patrick Vieira was in charge for much of the match, he was at the ref's side so much.

"Hopefully now we can get on a run of wins because we need wins to get alongside Arsenal."
