Anelka: Man United's Losses Gives Us A Chance

Chelsea striker and last season's golden boot winner Nicolas Anelka believes that the loss of Cristiano Ronaldo and Carlos Tevez gives Chelsea a chance of winning the Premier League.

"United are still a strong team and Ferguson is a good manager who knows what to do, but I don't think they'll be as strong this season," Anelka said.
"Ronaldo has gone, Tevez has gone, and maybe that will give us more of a chance to win this title and to be stronger than United.
"We have a strong squad this year and everyone is together, so we'll have a better chance.
"It will be a tough title race. All the teams at the top are very strong, and even Manchester City have some good players.
"Because United have lost two big names, it gives everyone else - including ourselves - a big chance to win it. We will fight until the end and see."

Talk about stating the obvious!

Any team who looses two of their best players (one of which was the best player in the world) will be slightly weaker. What Man United need to do is quickly settle the new players into the team, Michael Owen looks like he has done that already and hopefully they can score the all important goals that we need.

It will be difficult next season but if it was easy then it would be boring.
