Writing this article may well be completely irrelevant should the snow again wreak havoc across southern England, but there’s football scheduled at the moment so it’s worth a preview. Should the games all go ahead this weekend, there are some mouth-watering clashes to look forward to – none more so than the Chelsea v Man Utd clash, aka title decider, at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
If they get to the capital, United will be looking to extend their unbeaten league run that has seen them snatch top spot in a league where no one looks like they want to win it. Paul Scholes will be missing until the New Year, however, Wayne Rooney will play and this would be some game to score his first goal from open play since March.
Chelsea, meanwhile, have confirmed that stalwart midfielder Frank Lampard will start the game. This could well be the boost that the hosts need, and Carlo Ancelotti will be hoping this pushes his side on across the Christmas period.
In terms of who will be top come Sunday night, Stan James Head of PR, Charlie McCann, commented: “Any one of four teams could top the Premier League table on Monday night but we make Man United 8/11 favourites despite facing a difficult looking trip to Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon. United are two points clear and a draw ought to be enough to keep them top.”
