Ferguson wants league title tonight

1:59 pm on 16 May 2009

The Manchester United football manager Sir Alex Ferguson wants his side to clinch the English Premier League title on home turf by taking at least a point from their match against Arsenal tonight.

Premier League officials have made arrangements to present the trophy at Old Trafford after the final whistle.

Only one of United's 10 Premier League titles has been won at home - in 1999, with a 2-1 victory against Tottenham.

United have a 6 point lead over Liverpool at the top of the table and need 1 point from either tonight's match against Arsenal, or next weekend's final match at Hull to equal Liverpool's record league title haul of 18.
