London: Manchester United coach-cum-manager Sir Alex Ferguson has said that it is beyond his wildest dreams to be on the brink of overtaking Liverpool's championship haul of 19 Premier League titles.

Victory over Chelsea at Old Trafford tomorrow would see Manchester United put one hand on the league title for a record 19th time.

And the groans will be just as loud on Merseyside as they will be back in West London.

Fergie once promised to ''knock Liverpool off their perch'' and now the Scotsman is within touching distance of doing just that, The Sun reports.

Yet when he took charge of United back in 1986 - when the club had seven championships to its name - he never would have thought it was even a possibility.

The Old Trafford chief said: "At that time the aim was to match them and be successful. That was the target. That''s why I came here, to win that title. But once we won it the club took off.”
