Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson said his side now “feels like champions” after victory over Everton took them closer to a record 19th league trophy and challenged his side to beat Arsenal and Chelsea to win the title in style.

Javier Hernandez’s goal in the 1-0 win, United’s 13th successive home league success this season, piled the pressure on second placed Chelsea, who remain six points behind despite their win against West Ham.

“There’s only four games left now and the way we’re going about our business gives us an outstanding chance,” said Ferguson, whose team take on Schalke in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final this week.

“Does my team feel like champions to me? Yeah. There’s a winning attitude about them and a determination.

“You can test characters with these qualities. They refuse to give in.”

“It puzzles me that people keep saying that we’ve still got to play Arsenal and Chelsea as if we’re going to lose them,” said Ferguson.

“Why can’t we win these games? Why should people say that we can’t beat Chelsea at home or go to the Emirates and win? As I said to the players, forget all that rubbish and just win your games.”
