Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson was looking forward to a massive showdown with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, following his side's 1-1 draw at Blackburn Rovers.
A Carlos Tevez strike two minutes from time earned the Red Devils a share of the points at Ewood Park and moved them three points clear of the Blues at the top of the table, while also holding a vastly superior goal difference.
Ferguson told MUTV: "The tenacity and passion we showed in the game was fantastic. We played like champions and I'm very proud of the players.
"We'd rather have had the three points and I think we deserved them, but we've rescued a point yet again with another late goal from Carlos Tevez. So that's very positive.
"We had enough chances to win it. We dominated the second half and were very unlucky not to win.
"The Chelsea game is a massive one. I'm sure it'll be a fantastic match and we're going there to win.
"We have got to think about winning at Chelsea. I know they haven't lost there for about 100 games, but it could be like that. Records are there to be broken."
