Man Utd boss Ferguson: We were lucky

The Scot said: “Liverpool will feel unlucky and they deserve to. We had a lot of narrow escapes and they upset our rhythm. It was a massive victory.

“If you are looking for the luck of champions, then we have certainly had that in the last two matches.

“We broke away late on against Fulham and scored and now we’ve done it here. We’ve had that bit of luck in the last two weeks but you need luck if you are to win titles.”
