EPL race tightest in years as Chelsea tie for lead going into last weekend

Chelsea ensured the Premier League title race will go down to the last game of the season after a 2-0 win against Newcastle. Michael Ballack and Florent Malouda were on target for the Blues as they ground out three valuable points at St James' Park. As if Chelsea could handle anything else on their plate at the moment, without fail the EPL title will title will be decided next weekend as the Blues will host Bolton and the Man U travels to Wigan. Who do you like to take the crown? Because of all of the attention an all EPL Champions League final has drawn many have forsaken one the tightest and exciting finishes to the EPL in years. With little to go in the season, the top of the table looks like this:

Premier League Top 6 Plyd Points
1 Man Utd.....37.....84
2 Chelsea.....37.....84
3 Arsenal.....37.....80
4 Liverpool...37.....73
5 Everton.....37.....62
6 Aston Villa.37.....59

Chelsea will try to hold serve Monday night as they travel to Newcastle. Who do you think will survive, persevere, and come out on top? Let us know here and in the world sport chat rooms.


  1. jimlfc - Utd will win the title, can't see Chelsea catching them up although they may run them close. With the game in hand Utd have and their current form I'd expect them to go from now to the season end undefeated or at worst only losing points by drawing although that looks unlikely.

  2. if man utd muck up against blackburn (which can easily happen blackburn are a very decent side imo) then yea the race is still on but if utd win then i'd say it's over...i dont see us loosing to chelsea...maybe a draw but i dont think fergie would risk anything.

  3. True Man U can slip up but Chelsea best not overlook Newcastle! They may be near the bottom but they've won 4 of their last 6 and that's a tough side at home.

  4. Don't forget the Blues have played one less game, and after we beat Newcastle tonight we will be tied with more matches at Stamford Bridge. It's a little too early for all of you Man U supporters to start hoisting the trophy don't you think?

  5. I think its pretty certain that chelsea will go ahead and beat Bolton in their final league match,But i dont know wether man utd will beat wigan at wigan, they seem to be in form of late and could xxx a draw, i would now have chelsea as the favourites to win the league,

  6. does it matta bout all this argueing, we gunna finish joint top!!! it dont matter, the loser in the league will win the champions league and vias verus. it just been a cracking league this year, be it relegation battle and title race!!! i didnt expect us to be there so happy where we finish

    im gonna stick with my christmas pridiction and say chelsea for the double even thou i would see it as worst possible outcome

  8. Blueboy1995- Chelsea has been the most consistent all year and will take down the double this year! Man U will draw at Wigan and the Blues will win going away at Stamford Bridge for a massive celebration lasting well into Monday morning!!!!

  9. Unitedforevr -
    Wig. Athletic to beat United you say??? BOLLOCKS! You MUST be an Yank! Man U will take care of what needs to be done then THEY will be the side to also win the Champions League. Rooney will play in both matches and paired with Ronoldo will be too much for either WA or Chelsea to deal with!!
