Gary Neville relishing title run-in
Friday 02 April 2010
Gary Neville loves this part of the season the most.
Although Manchester United would not have chosen to head into tomorrow's crucial showdown with title rivals Chelsea without Wayne Rooney, Sir Alex Ferguson's men are hardly likely to abandon all hope of securing at least a draw that will keep them ahead of the pack with five games remaining.
Even at 35, the thrill of a title race never fails to excite Neville.
And the in-form full-back knows every game is vital from now on.
"This is the best part of the season," he said.
"This is the moment where you get to the crucial matches and every one is important.
"You can't afford to lose at this stage of the season because it can have a massive impact on where the trophies go."
