Its Chelsea's title to lose

Monday, April 12, 2010

United's slip up at the weekend away to Blackburn has given Chelsea the upper hand on this years title race. They now lead United by 1 point but with a game in hand and a better goal difference, albeit only four goals.

Manchester United have dominated the English Premier League over the past few years, with Chelsea usually second or third. However, this year Chelsea have matched United stride for stride and now with only a few games remaining may knock the reigning Champions off their throne.

Technically, Arsenal have a better chance of glory than Manchester United. They trail Chelsea by 3 points, but have played the same amount of games. That means that if Arsenal win their game in hand, they will leap above Manchester United in the table. This in itself would be an achievement for the Gunners.

The most worrying thing for United however, is that in the last three games they have lost twice and drawn once. And Wayne Rooney was injured for two of the games and the other he definitely not 100%. A bit unfair to say they are a one man team, but he was sorely missed.

So, nearing the end of the Premier League, is it Chelsea's to lose? Well, win the rest of their games and their Champions, so yes its theirs to lose. You can't help but feel there is another twist in the tale though.
