London, Mar 15 (ANI): Manchester United boss Alex Ferguson believes Arsenal will be a bigger challenge to their title aspirations than Chelsea.

Ferguson has ordered his players to win every game from now until the end of the season to beat them.

Manchester United went ahead of both of their main challengers in points tally yesterday to take top spot with a 3-0 victory over Fulham at Old Trafford.

Now Ferguson wants to ensure they keep their foot on the pedal as he fears it is the Gunners who could deny them a record 19th title.

"Every game is vital now. At the moment it is looking like the tightest Premier League we have had. We are back in the lead but Chelsea have a game in hand," The Sun quoted Ferguson, as saying.

"It's also going to be a hard-fought tussle with Arsenal coming strongly now... and I have a suspicion they might yet mount the biggest challenge.

"To a certain extent the title is in our hands because Chelsea have to come to Old Trafford and naturally that will be a massive match. But, as I say, I am wary of Arsenal if they don't suffer too many more injuries to key players," Ferguson said.

United are two points ahead of both Arsenal and Chelsea.

Ferguson said: "I have set us a title target - win every game between now and the end of the season! Obviously it's a big ask but that's what we must aim for if we are to achieve our objective of winning the championship again."

Ferguson believes he has the squad to make it a treble year with the Carling Cup already in the bag and a quarter-final place in the Champions League booked. (ANI)
