The Red Devils head into the home stretch of their Premier League campaign 15 points ahead of nearest rivals Manchester City and are in with a chance of wrapping up their 20th title during their visit to Arsenal at the end of the month.
Sam Allardyce, who will welcome Manchester United to Upton Park for a midweek fixture on Wednesday, recently admitted that the efficiency displayed by Sir Alex Ferguson's squad frightened him, and Ferdinand told the Daily Mail that the team's mentality to win at all costs was a characteristic he was proud of.
"We've got to make sure we finish the season correctly and get this title back. We're not far off it but it's not over until it's over. We have to make sure we remain focused and apply ourselves in the right way," Ferdinand stated.
"I'm not really surprised by the lead if I'm honest. When I look around the changing room I expect us to be winning games nine times out of 10. I believe in the squad, believe we can win games in various ways, winning ugly, playing fluent football, keeping a clean sheet. It would be great to win it [the Premier League title] again but until we do, I don't want to talk much about it. Last season a lot of people got ahead of themselves."
The 34-year center-back's contract will expire in the summer, but he is widely expected to sign a new one-year deal with the club.
"I'm just enjoying my football, playing in the big games, being a regular in the team. It enables you to hit a bit of form. I hope I can carry on," Ferdinand shared.
"When you get to my stage you take it year by year. I'm working out my routine."
