Sir Alex Ferguson admits this season's Premiership title race is shaping up to be the best ever. The Manchester United boss was delighted to see the Reds clean up at Craven Cottage with a comfortable 3-0 win. And he couldn't believe his luck when he found out Arsenal had slipped up at home to Aston Villa and now just one point separates the two bitter rivals, with Chelsea just seven points off the top with a game in hand. 'It has been a real see-saw and now it is down to one point, but Chelsea are still right on our coat-tails,' he told the BBC website. 'It looks as if it is going to be a fantastic run-in. I didn't think it was a great game. It was a very windy day and a lively pitch, but I think that we did the job very professionally.' United rested Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney in readiness for the Champions League clash with Lyon at Old Trafford tomorrow - but it did little to disturb United's rhythm in a first 45 minutes as they dominated with embarrassing ease. Louis Saha should have put United ahead after only five minutes when he was sent clear by a raking Scholes pass, but he was hopelessly off target. It was only a matter of time before United took the lead, and so it proved on 15 minutes when Brede Hangeland fouled Carlos Tevez and Owen Hargreaves clipped a clever free kick past Antti Niemi from 20 yards. Nani then shot narrowly wide and Paul Scholes saw a header well saved by Niemi as United threatened to overrun Roy Hodgson's troubled side. United's failure to take their chances almost cost them 12 minutes before the interval when Danny Murphy escaped his markers but saw a point-blank header blocked by Edwin van der Sar. The champions doubled their advantage on the stroke of half-time when Park Ji-sung met Scholes' cross with a firm header to leave Fulham facing a mammoth task. Fulham made little or no impact in the early stages of the second half, and United demonstrated their squad strength after 68 minutes, sending on Rooney and Ronaldo for Tevez and Saha. United were still in the ascendancy and Niemi had to be sharp to save low down from Park as he drove into the danger zone. The game was finished as a contest with 18 minutes left when Simon Davies unluckily diverted O'Shea's shot past Niemi at the near post for United's third. Fulham boss Roy Hodgson still believes his strugglers can beat the drop. 'I don't think five wins from our last 10 games is an impossible task, It's a big task but not impossible,' he said.
