Race to finish

ALEX FERGUSON admits that the race for the Premier League title in England is wide open after his Manchester United side were held to a draw by Tottenham.

Yesterday was the day of the draws as all four Premier League games ended level - the chances of that were 114/1.

But the main questions were asked at White Hart Lane: Can United maintain their stunning unbeaten run, and can Tottenham remain in contention?

Harry Redknapp risked a possible war of words with Ferguson by suggesting that it would be a "miracle" if United go through the season unbeaten and that United "can't be as good as they were one or two years ago when then had Ronaldo and Tevez".

Redknapp added: "This game makes me realise that we are not a million miles away from United and the other teams. The others I would put slightly in front of us but we are still in contention."

Ferguson did concede that Spurs are very much in with a shout.

"It could be a really thrilling end to the season. All five are claiming their chances.

"Tottenham aren't out of it. It's about winning games and keeping your nerve, and yesterday defensively we kept our nerve," said the United boss.
