SAF: Draw a fantastic result for Blues
Sir Alex Ferguson admits Manchester United’s 0-0 draw with Blackburn at Ewood Park is a "fantastic result" for Premier League leaders Chelsea.
Chelsea, who beat Aston Villa 3-0 at Wembley on Saturday to reach the FA Cup final, now lead the table by one point with a game in hand over United.
Ferguson said: "That’s a fantastic result for them (Chelsea). They’ve got a home game against Bolton on Tuesday which they will be expected to win."
Ferguson rued the missed chances, particularly one by Valencia just before half-time.
He added on Sky Sports News: "He should have scored. It was a golden chance and at a good time, five mins before half-time.
"We had the chances in the game. We dominated possession but you have to create those chances and take them.
"It’s always a difficult place to come to for anyone. We should have done better."
