Manchester United eyeing up Christmas number 1 spot
Date Posted: 15/12/10
Manchester United and newly-crowned X Factor winner Matt Cardle have one thing in common: they both hope they are at the Christmas number one spot this year.
Sir Alex Ferguson, speaking after his side's crucial 1-0 victory over Arsenal, stressed how important the upcoming festive calendar of matches is to his side, with another hotly anticipated clash against Chelsea on the horizon on Sunday.
They will then attempt to claim three points for their fans staying in Manchester hotels when the side takes on Sunderland at Old Trafford on Sunday December 26th, before their final game of the year sees the Red Devils face Birmingham City.
"These games are important. Arsenal were top of the league and we were in third, so it was an important result for us. That will go a long way to establishing what happens at the top of the league. We are 16 games undefeated. Now we have to make it 17," said Sir Alex.
