Sir Alex Ferguson has challenged Manchester United to win their remaining league games at Old Trafford to seal the Red Devils’ 20th league title this season.

United’s 12 game unbeaten streak, which had seen Ferguson’s side collect 33 points from a possible 39, came to an end on Wednesday night at the DW Stadium after Shaun Maloney’s strike sealed a 1-0 win for Wigan Athletic.

Manchester City’s 4-0 demolition of West Bromich Albion at the Etihad Stadium narrowed the gap between the derby rivals to five points.

And Ferguson is now targeting victories in United’s last three home games against Aston Villa, Everton and Swansea City to help retain their Premier League crown.

“I think it’s important to win our home games now,” Ferguson told United’s website.

“Obviously we’ll improve on Wednesday night’s performance. I’m sure of that.

“It’s been in a run and it’s got us in a position where we have got a chance of winning the league.

“Back a couple of months ago, City were 1/5 [with the bookmakers] or something like that and we were well behind in terms of goal difference and points.

“So we must take credit for getting ourselves in the race.”
