Can Chelsea or Arsenal Close The Gap On United?

With Arsenal throwing away a 2 goal advantage at Spurs, it seems now that only Chelsea can stop United claiming another league title. Time and time again this season Arsenal have managed to turn victory in to defeat capitulating against lesser teams. A prime example was against Newcastle earlier this season when unbelievably, Arsenal were four nil up but somehow only drew the game. Realistically for Arsenal to win the league they would have to win all 5 of their remaining games which with their current form seems very unlikely.

United have a 6 point advantage with just 5 games of the league remaining plus have to face Chelsea at home and Arsenal away. With games against Everton, Blackburn and Blackpool as almost bankers, the 9 points from this game alone should see united claim yet another league title.

Next weekend could prove to be the decisive point of the season as Chelsea have a tricky game at home to Tottenham whilst the day after United travel to Arsenal. If Chelsea drop points to Spurs and United, at the very least draw with Arsenal, then Sir Alex should have another league title under his belt.
