Red Down But Not Out

Tuesday, November 10, 2009
The Reds may be down after harshly losing out at Stamford Bridge, but Sir Alex insists his side are by no means out of the title race despite falling five points behind leaders Chelsea.

John Terry's controversial winner secured all three points for Carlo Ancelotti's men despite finding themselves second best for most of the 90 minutes in South London.

The result is certainly a blow to United's hopes of securing a fourth Championship crown in a row, but Sir Alex says his side have the qualities to bounce back from adversity.

"That was Manchester United we saw today," declared the boss in an interview with MUTV.

"We've got a great squad and today was a reminder that we're a very good team.

"We've been criticised recently by a lot of people, but that won't deter us.

"We've got a cause now, a great cause - we want to win this league. And the lead isn't unassailable, that's for sure."
