Chelsea vs Manchester United: “War of Words” Begins

As the day of Champions League final is approaching, football fans around the world are getting more excited waiting for a mind blowing clash in Moscow. The final match, due to take place next Wednesday, features two English giants, Chelsea and Manchester United. With wining the league title, Manchester United might have a psychological edge over Chelsea, but Chelsea will, for sure, strive for finishing the season with silverware.

Well, the final match is yet to kick off, but the ‘war of words’ has already been started. Using words and making negative remarks is a well-known way of clinching some psychological edge in every sport. Chelsea and Manchester United are no change. In fact, recently Chelsea manager Avram Grant has said that Manchester United got the favor of referees to win the title of Premier League. Manchester boss Sir Alex Ferguson did not take time to make remark on Grant’s comment. Ferguson has said that if United got some favors from referees then his side would have bee champion even before they traveled to Chelsea last month.

Times Online reported:

"I've been expecting it," Ferguson said. "I don't think it's about last Sunday, I think it's about next Wednesday and maybe even next season. I could go on and on about decisions because they're all debatable at the end of the day, we feel we didn't get a lot of decisions this season.

“Maybe when we went to Chelsea we should have been champions before it, but with the season over we can put it on the backburner and now it's about next Wednesday and I think that's why Avram's talking that way.”

Well, I think, both Chelsea and Manchester United have the quality to win the Champions League title on 21 May. Both the sides have long squads which mean the coaches have a number of options when deciding over their final eleven. Manchester United does not have any recent major injury problem and if John Terry can recover his elbow injury, then Avram Grant will have no injury woe ahead of a historic match. Yes, it is historic, because for the first time two English clubs are playing in the final of Champions League. Now, let us see who are going to win this historic match as well as the historic Champions League title.
