Sir Alex Ferguson has challenged his Manchester United side to beat Chelsea’s points record of 95 from the 2004-05 Premier League season.

The Red Devils are 15 points clear of nearest challengers Manchester City in the league with only nine games left, and require seven wins to equal Chelsea’s record.

Ferguson said the record offers extra motivation for his side as they look to secure the club’s 20th title in the English top flight

“The record is 95 points by Chelsea,” Ferguson told reporters.

“If we get to 95 points I would be absolutely delighted. That would be a fantastic season.

“And if we do get to that position, we have probably won the league.”

United missed out on the title last year on goal difference following a dramatic final-day finish which saw City snare league honours.
