The Perfect Weekend For Manchester United

Sports News - April 17, 2010
This weekend was a massive weekend for Man United. After last weeks dismal performance against Blackburn Rovers we needed to take three vital points from the game against Manchester City, to keep us in the title race. Anything less than three points and that would be our season over.

If Tottenham Hotspur could take anything off Chelsea then that would be a massive bonus.

United had the early kick-off against City at Eastlands, with only a minute remaining in the game, it looked like out season was over. That was until Paul Scholes turned up with a beautiful header two minutes into added time, which saw United leave with Eastlands with three points in the bag.

We then had to wait until the evening kick-off to see if Tottenham could do us a favour and take some points against Chelsea at White Hart Lane.

After beating Arsenal 2-1 at the Lane midweek, Spurs were full of confidence and to many peoples surprise; they also managed to beat Chelsea 2-1. The game also saw Chelsea and former England captain John Terry sent off.

Chelsea are still at the top of the Premier League table but the lead has been cut from four points down to one with only three games remaining.

Earlier on today, Arsenal went 2-0 up against Wigan, with 15 minutes remaining three goals were scored and the game finished Wigan 3-2 Arsenal.

It may mathematically still be possible for Arsenal to win the title but it won’t happen. Neither Chelsea nor United will drop that many points in the last three games.

Spurs have thrown this title race wide open again and they could still play a major part because they have to travel up to Old Trafford next weekend to play United.

After the loss to Chelsea earlier on this month and then the 0-0 draw at Rovers, it looked like the trophy was heading to Stamford Bridge.

This season has been full of twists and turns and there will be some more before we find out who will lift the Barclays Premier League trophy.
