Man United Could Win EPL Title at Stamford Bridge

If you were able to watch the two Premiership matches this morning at the same time, what an incredible experience it was to see Man United’s sensational 4-2 comeback against Everton on Setanta while Chelsea had a comeback of their own but couldn’t find the winner in the 2-2 draw.

The results from the matches now gives Manchester United a massive advantage to win the Premiership title. United are now five points ahead of Chelsea. But technically they’re six points ahead due to the vastly superior goal difference.

With three matches to go for both sides, all United has to do is beat cross-town rivals City in the Manchester derby next Saturday. And then if United gets either a win or a draw against Chelsea on Wednesday, May 9th at Stamford Bridge, Sir Alex Ferguson’s side will be champions no matter what happens on the final day of the season.

Of course, if United drops points against Manchester City or if Chelsea drops points against Arsenal, then everything changes.

Without a doubt, Manchester United’s scoring spree throughout this season has paid dividends compared to Chelsea’s more typical 1-0 and 2-0 wins. That superior goal difference puts United into a fantastic spot and psychologically gives Chelsea a mountain to climb.

Despite Man United beating Everton today, they didn’t play nearly the best. Everton put on a valiant performance closing down United whenever they got the opportunity. Rooney, especially, had a very poor game but that one twist of brilliance which led to his goal to make it 3-2 was all it took to make him a hero for the day.

Is the Premiership title now out of Chelsea’s grasp or do you see any way that they can fight back and pinch it?

    Differing opinions are always welcome. And I appreciate your feedback.

    I had to step out of the EPL Talk Chat before Rooney’s goal for the interview with Ian Plenderleith. I watched it on telly, though, and it was a throughly well taken goal by Rooney. Everything he did prior to that, though, was poor. His touch was awful. Albeit, he was heavily marked and wasn’t allowed much time on the ball.

    Still, congratulations to Rooney and United. This has been some week for both.

    i dont know gaffer…you were saying rooney was having a poor game but he came out very good in the second half. you were saying it didnt look like he could buy a goal…but i think that just reflected his many chances. his goal wasnt a moment of excellence..he was due that goal from all the work he was doing. i think its not a coincidence that you left the chat around the same time rooney really started playing well. i will give you he wasnt playing well the first half though.

    just a different take on the game though
