Game Over For Chelsea?

Game Over For Chelsea?

We owe one for Steve Bruce after his Wigan side stole a point from Stamford Bridge to leave Chelsea's title hopes in tatters. But do they still have a chance?

In my prediction, I had this weekend down as one where Chelsea will close the gap by beating Wigan while we only draw against Arsenal. The exact opposite happened and now we have one hand on the Premiership trophy.

Chelsea are on the brink of disaster: on Thursday they have to visit Everton and if they don't win there, we can afford to take the youth team to the Bridge between the two games against Barca.

So what do they have to do to harbour hopes of lifting the trophy? Well, first and foremost Chelsea have to win all of their remaining four games. Everton away, Manchester United home, Newcastle away, Bolton home - not an easy schedule.

But if they manage to collect 12 points, it's still not enough. United must either lose one or draw two of their other three games. So, for example, drawing at Blackburn, losing at the Bridge, winning against West Ham and at Wigan suffice.

It is unlikely that we'll throw it away, I admit but a possibility. Therefore we must not relax the way Chelsea players did last night after taking the lead. Frankly, I was astonished to see that they seemed uninterested in the whole affair. Surely such an attitude does not bode well for the remainder of their campaign?

Just for the record: I think we can still lose it. However, no team leading the Premier League with four games to go have ever bottled it.

united wont lose C_Blue. The way guys are playing, so boringly, tehy'llprobably tear u apart with their speed, especially if Anderson is playing. It'll take a really bad united to lose.

United can be really bad when we expect it the least but I agree that we are a better team than Chelsea at the moment.

I don't know. There might some more twists, but I think it's over, unless you lose at Ewod Park and we beat you at the Bridge.

What about West Ham? It's been a while since you beat em. But since I have the feeling that the game at Stamford Bridge will probably hold about the same level of excitement as last years bore from the end of the season and will probably end a draw, I think we have missed our chance this year.

Surely West Ham won't avoid defeat for the fourth time in a row against us?
