Ferguson remains 'optimistic' of title

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson says he's remaining "optimistic" of the club winning a 20th league title after a 2-0 victory over Swansea at Old Trafford.

First-half goals from Paul Scholes and Ashley Young were enough to see off the Swans - but despite moving level on points with Manchester City they are still eight goals behind Roberto Mancini's men after they beat Newcastle 2-0.

But while Ferguson says City are "red hot favourites", he insists the Blues' final game against QPR will not be easy and is hopeful of a last day turnaround.
