Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson goes into the last day of the Premier League season with hope rather than expectation of a title win. [LNB] United are still in with a chance of a record fourth straight title but Ferguson knows the odds are stacked firmly against his team.[LNB]Apart from beating Stoke at Old Trafford, the Red Devils are also reliant on Wigan avoiding defeat at Chelsea, a feat that has only been achieved twice by any team this season.[LNB]"It's pointless going into the game expecting anything from Chelsea in our favour," said Ferguson.[LNB]"I have confidence that Wigan will do their best and they will try.[LNB]"There's pressure on both us and Chelsea because we both need to win but I don't know what's going on in Chelsea's minds - all I know is that in this situation we just hope. You never know.[LNB]"But I will find out what has happened because there are TV people standing in front of you, people beside you and the crowd reaction sometimes tells you,"[LNB]Ferguson will be without Antonio Valencia, who has been ruled out with an ankle injury, but Rio Ferdinand is expected to return.
