ABSTRACT
IKNOW what both Sir Alex Ferguson and Roberto Di Matteo would like most from today's topof-the table fixture: a 1-0 win. In my years as a Manchester United player, people would talk to me about the epic 5-3 or 8-2 victories. But the truth is, exhilarating as those games were, it is those 1-0 wins that mean the most. That's when the whole team come off the pitch feeling as though they've done their job. The defenders are happy they kept a clean sheet; the strikers are happy because someone has scored; and the team are happy because the points are secured. One-nil wins are the sign of a title-winning side, like when Arsenal came to Old Trafford in 1998 and won the title or when Manchester United went to Newcastle in 1996. Get as many of those little 1-0 boys in the bag as you can and you'll have a decent chance come April and May.
