Manchester United V Stoke Preview

Sunderland Vs. Manchester United
Tomorrow we will find who will win the Premier League this season, since the season started all the way back in mid August 2009. Manchester United and Chelsea can both win it, but Chelsea has the advantage.

Chelsea are one point ahead of United, if they beat Wigan then they will be champions. If the London side draw or lose and Man United win then Man United will retain the trophy.

Man United face a Stoke side that only a few weeks ago lost 7-0 to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. It’s not like Stoke don’t have anything to play for, their lowest possible table position is 13th, which will earn them £6.4 million. If they beat United, their highest possible finish is 9th, earning them £9.6 million.

Unlike Liverpool at Anfield last weekend against Chelsea, Stoke won’t roll over against Man United.

Man United has been hampered by many injuries throughout this season but tomorrow Sir Alex Ferguson will only have three players out injured. Long-term absentees Anderson and Michael Owen have been joined by Antonio Valencia, who has picked up an ankle injury.

Stoke will be without their number one keeper Thomas Sorensen, who dislocated his shoulder against Chelsea. They will also be missing captain Abdoulaye Faye who is suffering from a groin strain.

I can only see a Man United win at Old Trafford, both teams have slipped up this season but I can’t see it happening to United tomorrow. Chelsea on the other hand has all the pressure piled on them and we have to believe that Wigan can shock us and get a result.

It promises to be an exciting day with both matches (along with the other eight Premier League games) kicking off at the same time; there are still twists and turns left in this title race.

United squad: Edwin Van Der Sar, Tomasz Kuszczak, Ben Foster, Gary Neville Rafael Da Silva, John O’Shea, Ritchie De Laet, Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic, Jonny Evans, Patrice Evra, Paul Scholes, Michael Carrick, Owen Hargreaves, Darren Fletcher, Darron Gibson, Ji-Sung Park, Gabriel Obertan, Ryan Giggs, Luis Nani, Wayne Rooney, Dimitar Berbatov, Mame Biram Diouf and Federico Macheda.
