Manchester United’s title hopes took a heavy blow last night, as Blackburn Rovers held them to a goalless draw at Ewood Park. Manager Sir Alex Ferguson felt missed chances were telling in the match, and points at a particular miss from summer signing Antonio Valencia as the key misfire of the game.

He should have scored. It was a golden chance and at a good time, five mins before half-time,” the Scot said on the league’s official website. “We had the chances in the game. We dominated possession but you have to create those chances and take them. It’s always a difficult place to come to for anyone. We should have done better."

Manchester United will have to recover from their current slump quickly if they are to have any chance of achieving four Premier League titles in a row, with a visit to Manchester City next on the agenda.
