Chelsea vs Manchester United : Preview


Although Premiership football is very unpredictable and any game can spring a surprise and there are many many interesting games and matches that decide the fate of the clubs when the season comes to a close be it on the top side of the table or the bottom.

This game however could decide the title winner.John Terry who has already been in the news after his red card was overturned which obviously wasn't taken well by Sir Alex, would be the center of attention after his famous slip in the penalties during the Champions League final in Moscow which eventually went to Old Trafford.

Chelsea who haven't lost a home game in the Premiership since February 2004 and are unbeaten this season as well.They haven't been performing upto the expectations of manager Scolari despite winning their Champions League tie against Bordeaux 4-0.

Manchester United however are running slowly. On the back of a defeat to Liverpool at Anfield and a dull goal-less draw against Villareal isn't showing positive signs for Sir Alex's team to manage 3 points or even a single point out of The Blues.One positive thing however is the return of Cristiano Ronaldo to the first team.It would be an interesting selection if Berbatov is declared fit too.

My prediction is a 2-1 win for Chelsea.Lampard to be on the scoresheet.
