Sir Alex: Time to end Bridge hoodoo

BY foxsports • December 16, 2010

Sir Alex Ferguson is hoping Manchester United can end their Stamford Bridge hoodoo in Sunday's Premier League clash with Chelsea.

United, who beat Arsenal 1-0 at Old Trafford on Monday night to establish a two-point lead at the summit with a game in hand, will move six points clear of fourth-placed Chelsea with a win this weekend.

But they have not won at the Blues' west London home since April 2002.

Ferguson told Sirius XFM: "(It) is a massive game now. We used to have a terrific record at Chelsea, but not so much over the last few years and we haven't won there for eight years.

"It's a big game and we'll be ready for it.

"We've got good players and they have all had big-game experience for years now. Their experience is very important and the desire is still there with this club."

Defending champions Chelsea have taken just six points from their last seven league games but showed signs of promise in last Sunday's 1-1 draw at Tottenham and would have won had it not been for Didier Drogba's injury-time penalty miss.
