Former Manchester United captain Gary Neville has said that losing the Premier League title on goal difference is Sir Alex Ferguson’s “worst nightmare”.
“I’ve been in that changing room for 20 years and it’s his worst nightmare” he said in his post Manchester derby analysis on Sky’s Monday Night Football.
“Losing the championship on goal difference is what he always talks about. Every single season in January, February and March in the championship run-in he will say if you’re 1-0 or 2-0 up he wants you to score three or score four. You never know whether it’s going to go to goal difference” continued the eight time Premier League winner.
.”You look at games like Fulham at home or QPR at home, who had six put past them [against Chelsea ]. It’s these things you look back on during a season and think you could have done more”. “It is his worst nightmare.” divulged Neville
Roberto Mancini’s men are now level on 83 points with United having secured a 1-0 win at the Etihad stadium on Monday night. Manchester City are now top of the table and hold an eight goal advantage over their fierce city rivals.
