- Alex Ferguson has warned Man United to tread softly as they gun for the Premier League title

Former Manchester United manager, Alex Ferguson has refused to be carried away about the Red Devils’ form in the Premier League so far this campaign as they are joint top on the standings.
Pressure continues to mount on current manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as United are looking like they will challenge for the title this season.
Ferguson who retired in 2013 after winning 38 major titles during his time as United manager is still regarded as arguably the greatest manager of all-time.
And with the Red Devils tied on the top of the Premier League standings, and having a game at hand, fans are speculating that this could be United’s time after seven years.
Ferguson, however, seems to be refusing to get carried away with United’s form, despite Solskjaer’s side having won 26 of the last 30 points on offer. He told Daily Mail:
"It's not an easy road to get back into challenging for the league.
"It's a difficult league these days."
Ferguson celebrated a remarkable 13 league title wins during his time in charge.

It is evident that his love for the Red Devils remains as strong as ever, but where does he rank among other great tacticians that the world has witnessed?
In the latest compilation by UK outlet FourFourTwo, impressive tacticians Marcelo Bielsa, Sven-Goran Eriksson and Joachim Low are surprisingly out of the top 50, including Claudio Ranieri.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will reportedly tell four of his players that they are now surplus to requirement and are free to leave during the January transfer window.
It was gathered that United are ready to listen to offers Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo, Sergio Romero, and Jesse Lingard. The four stars have barely made an appearance for the Red Devils with Lingard playing two League Cup matches.
The Manchester club will also be looking to get the players off their wage book and invest in others who are likely to make Solskjaer's starting line-up.
