Watch us win every game left this season, warns United veteran Scholes

Battle cry: Veteran midfielder Scholes Paul Scholes is confident Manchester United can win their remaining eight Premier League games and rewrite history. The Red Devils are back at the top of the table after Sunday's win over Fulham - two points above Chelsea having played a game more. The Blues arrive at Old Trafford at the start of next month for a game that is likely to determine if United can claim their fourth straight title and a 19th overall to overtake fierce rivals Liverpool. Scholes said: 'I'd like to think we have the right players, ones who've been there before and know how tough it can be to win the League. 'The game against Chelsea at Old Trafford is going to be massive and we know we need to win that one. 'But that's not the only important match. If we want to win the League we're going to have to win every game. It's a tough ask, but I'm sure we can achieve it. 'We've had some good results against Chelsea at Old Trafford. At Stamford Bridge we've struggled a little bit, but with the United fans behind us we've got the better of them. 'That match is crucial because there's a such a big prize up for grabs and it could have a big impact on the title race. 'But every game is important  - the teams at the bottom are fighting for survival and we need to make sure we beat them as well.'   Scholes has one eye on the April 3 clash with Carlo Ancelotti's side but the 35-year-old midfielder is refusing rule Arsenal out of the running. The Gunners are also two points behind with eight games left and have, on paper, an easier run-in. 'You can't rule out Arsenal, especially with the run-in they've got, he added. 'They've played all the top teams twice already so they'll be confident of putting together a good run of results. 'We want to win all of our matches and if we do that we'll win the League. It would be great to win four in a row. Three in a row was a big achievement and now we want to go one step further. 'But the chance to make history doesn't drive me. That's not what's in the back of my mind when I walk out onto the pitch. Close call: Chelsea captain John Terry (right) scored the only goal of the game when the sides met at Stamford Bridge in November 'I just want to win every game and hopefully win every trophy, whether it's the first time I've won it or the 10th. 'The aim each year is to win the League. If it means making history then terrific. If not, then so be it. 'I've won nine titles but I can't separate them and pick one as being better than the others. 'Winning the League is just a brilliant feeling and I hope we can do it again this season.'  Rooney has emerged as world-class talent we knew he was, says ParkUnstoppable Rooney fires United top to close in on Ronaldo's 42-goal haul Berbatov insists Man United are all set for a fourth title on the bounceBeckham to spend another night in hospital as Finland goes mad over starDavid Beckham WILL be back: Star vows to play on for England as achilles op saves careerMANCHESTER UNITED FC
