Fernando Torres has backed Manchester United to retain the Premiership title for a third consecutive season.

The Old Trafford club can move to the top of the table this week if they beat Wigan and Bolton before Liverpool face local rivals Everton on Monday.

“They’re the clear favourites to win the title,” said Torres. “We’re working hard to compete with them and finish above them and we’re on course to achieve that.”

“We know it’s possible for us to win this season but we have to fight to the very end to do so.”

“It’s obvious that we know all about them. They are the champions of Europe and the world.”

“We know the class they have in their team. They have some of the best players in the world.”

The showdown on 14th March will be crucial to the destination of the trophy and the Spaniard acknowledges that.

“I think the game at Old Trafford will decide the title,” stated Torres. “If everything goes as we expect then we will go there in a similar position to now.”

“We will have to play our game to try and get a result in a ground, which in the last few years has not been good for Liverpool.”

The striker refused to be drawn into the feud between his manager and Manchester United’s Alex Ferguson.

Torres said: “The managers make remarks. They have their reasons for that but I won’t be looking at them.”
