Ferguson admits Man City's 6-1 defeat of Man U could cost Premier League title

   May 6, 4:16 pm

London, May 6(ANI): Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has confessed that their 6-1 hammering at the hands of Manchester City at Old Trafford this season could cost them the Premier League title, if both teams win their remaining two fixtures.

Ferguson has questioned his team's defending in the last three minutes of the Manchester derby, during three goals were conceded.

United were losing 3-1 after 89 minutes, but then two goals from Edin Dzeko and another from David Silva turned it into a 6-1 thumping.

United and City are neck and neck at the top with two to play, but Roberto Mancini's men have an eight-goal advantage over their neighbors, and Ferguson believes losing the title on goal-difference could be the worst thing to happen in his entire professional career.

"Yes, that's maybe right. The opportunities we get in games - we are frivolous with these things," The Sun quoted Ferguson, as saying.

"It looks as though we'll lose the league on goal difference. You have to look at that game where we lost three goals in the last three minutes to City. That's a goal difference swing of six. And that 4-4 game with Everton was crazy, stupid," he added. (ANI)
