EARLY KICK OFF AT THE BRIDGE ....
PREMIERSHIP CHELSEA - MANCHESTER UNITED
There is not much point in discussing these two in great detail, we all know them very well. This could turn out to be a title decider, certainly United will think that they have it in the bag, if they avoid defeat. However, both will also have one eye on their Champions League semi-final second legs, coming up in midweek.
I think that, given the quote, we have to take a little on the Blues, who have not lost at home since I last wore short trousers to school. They will be boosted by the return of the influential Michael Essien from suspension, Frank Lampard is likely to miss out, following the sad death of his mother, but he was ineffectual at Anfield in midweek in any case and Michael Ballack, usually raises his game, when FL is missing.
United have not scored at Stamford Bridge in six visits and Ronaldo continues to disappoint in the really big games. I have no doubt that they will come looking for the draw and see that result as the only downside.
5 points Chelsea -1/4 ball 2.18 asian line.
