United v Chelsea - 0-0 Draw Written All Over It

United v Chelsea - 0-0 Draw Written All Over It

Once again, a clash between two members of the Big Four which Sky attempt to hype up - but it looks certain that it'll fail to deliver.

Games between the Premiership's biggest sides are nowhere near as bad and boring as many out there would like to make you believe but they usually offer nowhere near the excitement Sky promises us. This time I think tose who vote for boredom get it right and not simply because two big teams will lock horns with too much at stake to really open up.

It will be a scrappy, uneventful game because both team is in abysmal form. It might be an exaggeration as they are still picking up points, still in good positions on the table and United haven't conceded in 7 league games. But the football these sides displayed in recent weeks is nothing short of woeful; United and Chelsea both looked out of ideas all too often.

Fergie will likely order the wingers to close down Bosingwa and Cole all the time; I expect Scolari to tell them to curb their runs in order to close down the space in which United's wide players could operate. Their three-man midfield will squeeze the life out of our midfield and neutralise Berbatov's link play. Thus both sides will be robbed by their main attacking weapons simply by virtue of their respective line-ups therefore anything else than a 0-0 draw would be a surprising result.

Now I told you it'll probably be one of the worst games of the season you can expect a 3-3 thriller...
