United manager not giving up title hope after win over Swans

Sir Alex Ferguson hopes Manchester United supporters will have the 'biggest celebration of their lives' next week but knows his team can do nothing except go to Sunderland with the right mindset and try to win the game. The Premier League title will be decided on the final day of the season as United and their Manchester rivals head into next Sunday's games level on 86 points at the top of the table. However, Roberto Mancini's City have a superior goal difference and are almost certain to become champions if they beat Queens Park Rangers at the Etihad Stadium. QPR's away record is poor, however, and Ferguson admitted after United's 2-0 victory over Swansea at Old Trafford that his side would go to Sunderland next weekend with hope rather than expectation. "We have to go there with the right spirit to win the match. You never know," he said. "Our responsibility (next week) is to win the game. "We've got next week. QPR need a point, so you never know. I just wish Sparky (QPR boss Mark Hughes) was playing."


Paul Scholes and Ashley Young scored the goals against Swansea as United picked up a victory that at least kept the pressure on Manchester City. Ferguson added: "We did what had to do. We won the match. "We had a lot of chances. I thought we played very, very well. "I was pleased to win the match." The clash with Swansea was United's final home game of the season and Ferguson went out on to the pitch after the match to address the fans. He said: "I want to thank the directors for supporting us the way they do and hopefully next week we will have the biggest celebration of our lives."
