Chelsea is going to host Manchester United in a title deciding match of English Premier League 2007-2008 season tomorrow. The match will take place at the Stamford Bridge stadium of Chelsea. This is the last high profile match remaining this season in EPL and the result of the match can have a huge impact on deciding the title of English premier league this season. So, this match simply has everything to be a classic one and it can apparently be tagged with ‘match of the season’. It will not be wrong to say that a mouth watering clash is waiting three at the Stamford Bridge stadium tomorrow. Chelsea vs Manchester United match kicks off 12:45 GMT.

Match: Chelsea vs Manchester United, English Premier League 2007-2008

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Date: 26 April 2008

Time: 12:45 Local Time

Live in TV and Radio: Sky Sports and BBC Radio Five Live

Chelsea is now the only possible threat for Manchester United in their bid to defend their English premier league title this season. There is a difference of three points between Manchester United and Chelsea in the league table with three matches yet to be held this season. Chelsea secures the second place with 78 points, while Manchester United is leading the point table with 81 points at this moment. So, you can see that a lot now depend on the result of this match. Chelsea can bridge the gap of three points with a victory over Manchester United tomorrow, while a victory for Manchester United would take Manchester within a point of winning the title of English Premier League this season. However, if Chelsea can win the match, then the title race would see a stiff competition.

Chelsea will have home advantage in the match and Avram Grant side must go into the match with the intention of winning the match, because even a draw would mean Chelsea going down further in the title race of English premier league this season. Actually, winning the title of premier league is important for both sides as neither of the two clubs could achieve anything yet this season. Chelsea reached the Carling Cup final, where they suffered a heart breaking defeat to Tottenham Hotspur and failed to impress in the FA Cup. On the other hand, Manchester United failed to do anything special in both League Cup and FA Cup. Thus, it is apparent that both sides are now striving for success in English Premier League and Champions League, two tournaments where both the sides have realistic chance to win silverware.

Both Chelsea and Manchester United have reached the semi final of Champions League this season and have already played the first leg of the semi final match this week. Chelsea came up with a successful 1-1 draw at Liverpool in the first leg semi final match of Champions League. So, they have an advantage ahead of the second leg match at Stamford Bridge, set to take place on 30 April 2008. Manchester United also drew in the first leg semi final match away at Barcelona. With this goal less draw, Manchester United may not have any advantage ahead of the second leg encounter with the Spanish giants on 29 April 2008, except the home advantage as the match will take place at the Old Trafford. However, if Manchester United wins at Chelsea tomorrow or at least makes a draw against the host, then Manchester United would be going into the deciding match of Champions League semi final with sheer confidence in them.

So, Chelsea and Manchester United have the possibility to win double this season and for both sides, it would be a great success, given the fact that they have not won any trophy this season. So, Chelsea and Manchester United must be determined to bring out success by their own and considering the ambiance of the match, I think, you could experience a great match tomorrow.

Recent performance of Chelsea and Manchester United in all Competition

I have already mentioned the latest match they played in Champions League. Actually, I think, Chelsea’s performance against Liverpool was satisfactory in the first leg semi final. Liverpool overtly dominated the first half of the match scoring a goal, while Chelsea hardly posed any threat for Liverpool in the first half. However, soon after the match resumed into the second half, Chelsea took the control gradually and created a number of chances for an equalizer, but Liverpool defense was up to the mark. It was not until the dying minutes of additional times when Liverpool player J. Riise presented Chelsea an own goal.

For Manchester United, I think, they could not show much at Barcelona and the Catalan club dominated throughout the match. Manchester United had few attacks in the match and most of the time ball was on Manchester United half. However, Manchester United was unfortunate as their ace midfielder Cristiano Ronaldo missed a penalty on the third minute during the match at Barcelona. A victory would have provided Manchester United a clear edge over Barcelona ahead of the second leg match.

Both Chelsea and Manchester United are in good form at this moment, if not best. Chelsea won four out of their last seven outings in all completions with a solitary Champions League defeat to Fenerbahce away in quarter final. The other two matches were drawn. Manchester United also has a good record of late with four victories and three draws in their last seven matches they played in all competitions. Manchester United, for sure, is going to face some strong challenges at Chelsea.

Chelsea has maintained a formidable home record as they are currently on a 80-match unbeaten streak at home in premier league and they are currently holding the record of longest unbeaten streak in premier league of 18 matches. However, Manchester United has also something to be inspired themselves as they won five out of their last ten matches on the go with five matches ended in draw. Manchester United conceded only 19 goals in premier league, which is so far a club record. So, you can see that both sides are strong enough to present the football fans an exciting match.

Chelsea vs Manchester United: Head to Head

Actually, Chelsea is always a strong side at home and I have provided some ground upon my claim already. To tell the truth, Chelsea is one of those clubs who brought out success against Manchester United on a regular basis. In fact, Chelsea took 40 points against Manchester United, which is more than that of any other club. At Stamford Bridge, Manchester United does not have any notable success of late, as they will go into the match seeking for their first victory within six years. They defeated Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in 2002 premier league. Last but not least, Manchester United could not score any goal at Stamford Bridge in their last five premier league visits. So, you can see that Alex Ferguson boys have to be at their best if they want to win the match. Out of their last 15 head to head matches, Chelsea won on six occasions, while Manchester United projected four victories and five other matches ended up in a draw.

Chelsea and Manchester United have some excellent footballers who could bring winning momentum for their respective clubs. For Manchester United, Cristiano Ronaldo, along with Wayne Rooney and Carlos Tevez could be proven lethal for any side and the trio has given enough to Manchester United this season. However, Manchester United is now worried about defender Nemanja Vidic as he is yet to recover from stomach complaint. Manchester United might bring Ryan Giggs and Park Ji-sung in the starting eleven tomorrow.

Sky Sports reported:

Sir Alex Ferguson then had to shuffle his pack against Barcelona after key defender Nemanja Vidic was ruled out with a stomach complaint.

The Serbian is a major doubt for the game with Chelsea but Ferguson will give him as long as possible to prove his fitness.

Ryan Giggs is set to return in midfield after starting on the substitutes' bench in midweek, with Park Ji-sung the most likely to make way.

Chelsea is likely to miss their star player Frank Lampard following his mother’s death this week. However, Chelsea will get play maker Michael Essien available for the match against Manchester United. Essien missed their midweek Champion League match due to suspension and he is likely to take up the Lampard’s place in the Chelsea midfield. Avram Grant has got to decide on the player who will play in the two wings to provide balls for Didier Drogba in the up front.

Goal.com reported:

Midfielder Frank Lampard is almost sure to miss the game following the death of his mother on Thursday.

Michael Essien returns to the squad after being suspended for the Champions League match against Liverpool. Essien is likely to take Lampard's place in midfield.

Grant's only other injury concern is deputy goalkeeper Carlo Cudicini, who is missing with a hamstring strain.

This is more than a high profile match. Chelsea vs Manchester United match now seems to be an unofficial final of English Premier League 2007-2008. So, the match has already been the center of all attraction of English club football at this moment. Both teams will try to show their best and play for winning the match. I think, some attacking football is waiting there in the match. Specially, Chelsea might be a bit more attacking in the match as a victory is badly needed for the Blues; while Manchester United might play it safe thinking that even a point from the match would worth enough for them. I think, football world is going to experience a special encounter tomorrow and either team can win the match.
