Chelsea Vs. Man U is here. Whom do you pick to win? Neither can afford to drop any further points now that Liverpool has pulled away a bit. Chelsea have been sluggish off late dropping points regularly, Man U have been performing sluggishly, but managing to eke out 1-0 wins lately. So what do you think would be result on Sunday? My pick 0-1 for Chelsea with Ballack being the scorer. Cheers! Ram

I am writing five days after that thiis message has been posted. man Utd emerged as winners of this match. It is useless to say whom I would have picked. I am dissapointed that Chelsea did not win this game. they have the material to win the league however the Red Devils seem much more a squad than Chelsea are. I guess that Scolari needs more time to put his magic at work.

I still can't forget last season's 1-1 with Chelsea scoring in the last 10 min.! I think it will be a draw this season too. Both teams will be very cautious and will try to make the best of the opponent's errors rather than taking any chances. I don't think the latest performance of those teams really matters. Even more, a lower performance in the near past may as well bring some extra motivation. Will watch the game, I think it will be very interesting - not a spectacular one, but more a tactical clash.

I think that the Man U V Chelsea game will be very tight, with possibly United having most of the play and goal scoring opportunities, but in the end I think it will be a 1 v 1 draw. Chelsea can't afford to lose the game, and will probably be defensive with Drogba upfront in a 4-3-3 formation.

I think United might just win it 2-1, Chelsea are missing the gritty Essien in Midfield and although there resolve and confidence is seeminlgy on the wane, they still have the Drog, who if is not brooding(like he seems to be doing alot nowadays, nevermind the injuries)can turn the game around. Scolari should play Drogba and Anelka upfront if we are to see any action Talking of Moods, this are the kind of games tailored for Christiano, but his mind is somewhere between Manchester and Madrid and although Sir Alex has made his point with keeping him at Old trafford I see him laeving at the end of the season, which leaves uniteds' ambitions squarley on Rooney. I think he will score today, if not a brace then one then again this could be very cagey and dare i say 'Boring' affair if both teams are overly cautious, which doesnt ager well for neutrals like myself!

the game will be a hard fought one as they are the best teams in the league. liverpool lost their game and these two teams will go for the kill and play to win. manchester united are fourth and some points to make to the top so they will be more desperate to win then chelsea. i go for a manchester united win rooney and ronaldo to score the goals. happy mylotting!!!

there has always been great matches played between both the teams.so, this one will also be a close one. there are no injury problems for the match, so the entire squad is available for Ferguson. while Chelsea may Alex and maluda. this season record of manutd and Chelsea aren't that impressive against the big 4. both the teams have lost one match and drawed 2. i have a felling that this match would be fought very hard in the midfield and there will be very few attempts made on the goal. so, i will go for 0-0 draw.

I think this will be a very close game,As it mostly is when the top four teams play each other.I have to say that i think Chelsea will just sneak the win 1-0 or 2-1.Chelsea have had a strange season so far,After losing their home record of about 90 games unbeaten they have really struggled at home,Whilst away from home they have been awesome,Now setting a continous away wins record,This is the reason i thin Chelsea will sneak the win,Also i think it will be a dull game,These clash of the titan games so regularly are.
