Chelsea could move 4 points clear at the top of the Premier League tonight with a win over Bolton and will put the blues in pole position to win the Premier League title this season. After a successful FA Cup Semi Final win over Aston Villa, Chelsea are looking strong and going to Old Trafford and winning proves that. Drogba has been outstanding this year. He has been back to his best, and when he is on song so is Chelsea. I want to look at the whole season for Chelsea. Their main goal was the Champions League which as we know they came undone by Inter Milan. However they have been the most consistent of the ‘Big 4’. We have seen Manchester United come undone in recent weeks. The loss of Rooney has cost them dear. Berbatov was needed, but he has simply showed he is not up for the fight. Don’t get me wrong, he does try but, I would ask any Red Devil. Would they want Tevez or Berbatov for the title run in?
United have missed Rooney sharpness and of course his goals. A 0-0 draw at Blackburn last Sunday did not help. Next is the Manchester derby at Eastlands. You know City will be up for this game, it is their ‘cup final’ in the eyes of some United supporters, but City are looking good for fourth and they will be looking to maintain their good form. Also they want to get some revenge from the 4-3 and the Carling Cup semi final earlier this season.
I give my full respect to Portsmouth relegated Saturday evening, FA Cup finalist Sunday evening. They showed a true passion and desire to put all the things that have happen to them this season behind them and get to the final for themselves and their die-hard fans. I said in my last blog that Pompey should fully focus on the Cup and they did, know they have another big day out in Wembley. Tottenham’s good season could fall apart in a matter of weeks; Arsenal and Chelsea come to the Lane and could see off Spurs top four hopes for good.
Newcastle and WBA have also been promoted to the Premier League so this part of the season prediction has come true!!
