London: Sir Alex Ferguson is aiming for an unprecedented fourth consecutive Premier League title and has consequently set Manchester United a target of 90 points, if they are to retain their title as champions of England.

"There is not much leeway," Ferguson told Sky Sports.

"Last season we had a points total of 90 and even though we say it is the most competitive league, you still have to think of that figure to be the winner.”

"Liverpool got 86 last season, which is an exceptional total too, but they only finished second."

The Red Devils recently suffered a shock 1-0 defeat at Turf Moor against Burnley, and will look to regain lost pride against Wigan Athletic today.
