The Battle For Supremacy

Tonight one of the biggest matches in the EPL pitting two of England’s Dominant clubs  Chelsea and Manchester United at the Stamford bridge will definitely be a match to watch. Both these teams are separated by just two points in the Barclays Premiership title race.

Chelsea’s fantastic start to the season will get better if they beat a Manchester United side that seem to be coping well in their post Ronaldo era. Once Again we should expect a good performance from Didier Drogba and company.

Lately, Drogba’s form has really impressed both his supporters and haters. To be honest when Mourinho left i thought he would never return to his best and for sometime, he was actually playing some really bad football. Enter Carlo Ancelotti and things have drastically changed in the mentality of the players.

You don’t have to look far to see what kind of a player Didier Drogba is. Just last week,  he made his Champions league comeback after a four game suspension to score both of Chelsea’s goals in their 2-2 draw with Atletico Madrid. Not only are Chelsea wining games, no but their goal average each match is considerably high.

Chelsea lead the EPL table and they won’t want Man U to close in or even beat them to 1st place. Man U on the other hand are doing just fine without Cristiano Ronaldo and Sir Alex Ferguson will be keen to squash all the negative talk about how his side won’t do well this season in the absence of the their top goal scorer for the past two seasons.

Matches of this nature tend to be emotional charged due to the fact that they involve high stakes. If Man U lose then it will also be good news for the Gunners who are currently second and who have played one less game then Chelsea or Man u. My predictions for this game is a 2-0 win for the blues courtesy of Drogba and Kalou.
