Liverpool and Man Utd…a Two Horse Race?Apr 23rd, 2009 | By hannah | Category: Hannah
After tonight’s results in the Premier League, the title race is set to be a two horse race as Chelsea drew 0-0 in a stalemate at Stamford Bridge with Everton whilst Manchester United’s comfortable 2-0 win against Portsmouth saw them reclaim top spot. The tantalizing game at Anfield on Tuesday saw Liverpool drop two points against Arsenal and concede four goals which won’t do much for their goal difference if the title race does run to the wire.
It does seem like Chelsea’s titles hopes are over as they travel to the Nou Camp to face the mighty Barcelona and Gus Hiddink’s team appears to be focusing on the Champions League now.
Liverpool and Manchester United’s life long rivalry with have some title-chasing substance to it after the Merseyside’s team 19 year drought. The advantage lies with United as after tonight’s fixture are 3 points clear with a game in hand, its not over yet but games are running out for Rafa Benetiz’s side who can now may end the season trophy less much to my delight.
And on a night where Paul Scholes join the 600+ club, it was Ryan Giggs who dominated play, they both seem to be getting better with age and after watching the feature length highlights, it was United best premier league performance of the season.
After Rafa’s rants and Fergie’s criticism of his contempt for Sam Allardyce last week condemning the Spaniard’s of his arrogant nature, tempers have flared and Liverpool have been resilient competition but it looks the old master will win his 11th Premiership title.
