United on the goal trail

05 May 2009 08:07
Sir Alex Ferguson will order his Manchester United team to go for goals as they look to secure a place in the Champions League final at Arsenal. Despite dominating the first leg at Old Trafford last week, United travel to the Emirates Stadium with just a single-goal advantage. Crucially, however, they did not concede a precious away goal, meaning if they do score against Arsene Wenger's men, the Gunners would need three to set up a meeting with either Chelsea or Barcelona in Rome on May 27. As United have not conceded that many since their semi-final hammering by AC Milan at the San Siro two years ago, it seems an unlikely scenario, hence his call for Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney and company to find the net. "We have to go there with the intent of trying to score," said Ferguson. "The important thing is to have a threat and hopefully we manage it. "We have the ability to score and if we can it would put us in a very strong position."
