London, May 7 (ANI): Manchester United's ace defender Rio Ferdinand has tried to increase pressure on table toppers Chelsea by saying that Wigan can halt the Blues' Premier League title charge at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

The England defender hopes to play some part against Stoke as he returns from groin and back problems.

"It's been an exciting season. More so-called lesser teams on paper have been taking points off the top four," The Sun quoted Ferdinand, as saying.

"In previous seasons it's been a case of the big teams beating all the others and then dropping points against each other. It's been a weird season. Hopefully that'll bode well for Chelsea's game," he said.

Ferdinand's team-mate Edwin van der Sar said it will be strange going into the final game with their fate out of their hands after being champions for the past three years.

He knows that the mood at Old Trafford could change very quickly if they hear some positive news from Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

"It is very strange. In the last three years we have been in command. Now we have to wait. It is going to be difficult. We have lost a lot of games this year but we are still in there. opefully Wigan will go for it on Sunday and we will hear some positive news," Van der Sar said. (ANI)
