Ferguson weighs into fixture row
Sir Alex Ferguson
Ferguson believes Man Utd can mount a title challenge this season
Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has backed Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho's criticism of Arsenal.

Mourinho claims Chelsea have had a rough deal from the game's governing bodies compared to the Highbury outfit, notably over fixture list allocation.

Ferguson said: "Mourinho's dead right, by the way. You look at the fixtures Arsenal have after European games - it has been going on for years.

"I've been complaining about for seven years and no-one listens to me."

Despite Chelsea's huge spending power Ferguson still believes he has the squad to mount a realistic title challenge.

"We want to show we can win titles on these new terms - and I think we have the playing resources to do it.

"I can't believe some of the things Chelsea have done in the transfer market - it's incredible. But I also believe we have the players to win the league.

"I believe you can still get on with business without worrying about Chelsea. They can't buy all the players."
