As much as id like to see pauls prediction come true i doubt it and why is every one saying chelseas exit was such a shock inter are far to underestimated. I mean they drew with barca in the home tie of the GS and they didnt play well in the game. Is it obvious that im an inter fan as well aha Wenger and Mourinho (The Speacial Ones)

I have to agree with most of the comments made that man u have a tough game in hand and chelsea might not pick themselves up from that defeat to inter...however the league will definetely be decided when man utd meets chelsea at old trafford. all the best to arsenal ...

With spurs winning today the pressure is on Liverpool tomorrow as they know that anything other than a win at old Trafford and they are almost certainly not going to be in the champions league next year so that puts the pressure firmly on Liverpool and last season they knew that the league was over so they had the opportunity to play freely and won 4-1 without creating a single chance 2 of the goals were punts upfield which 99 times out of 100 Ferdinand and vidic will deal with 1 was shocking control from vidic leading to his rugby tackle on torres his red n a great aurilio free kick and the other was a reckless challange by evra in the box with gerrard goin nowhere. I just don't think Liverpool will have that much luck and lack of pressure and just can't see them getting a result.

Scott Williamson (Blackburn Rovers fan) says...

I'm not entirely sure how we'll do agianst Chelsea, we've beaten on penalties in the cup ion a tremendous game that only saw Chelsea level thanks fo a Paul Robinson howler. Robbo is obviously out now and we've recalled Mark Bunn? The only time I saw Mark Bunn was earlier in the season during the cup match where both Salgado and Kalinic score their first goals for the club. He's terrible so I'm really hoping Big Sam actually knows what he's doing this time. Last week against Spurs, taking Emerton off and putting Andrws on was a foolish move, you're 3-1 down and put on a defensive midfielder in place of an attacking mid? Either way I don't think we'll get the same 5-0 drubbing we got in the last league encounter but I do think we'll get beat. I'm gonna say 3-2 Chelsea

i agree with paul and think that chelsea and united will drop points at the weekend.chelsea will no doubt feel the affects from the inter game and goin to ewood wont be easy.remember only spurs and city have left there with 3 points.

chelsea will thrash blackburn after what happened in the mid week blackburn will have a go on chelsea but chelsea are in a mood that no other team will be on after what happened against inter

Gregor B (Chelsea fan) says...

The issue is a referee. Usually ref is United 12th player. If the ref on Sunday is good, United will drop points. Prediction: at the end of the game United are in trouble and there is 5 or 6 minutes added!

Nick Armstrong (Blackburn Rovers fan) says...

I agree with you paul i can see us getting a point but with the derby with burnley next weekend i think the players will want to go into that game in a confident mood. Dunn knows what the derby means to the fans and he will be in inspirational in the week biulding up to it form. i think we could push and maybe beat chelsea.

I have to agree with my fellow Chelsea fan Steve Wright, everything he posted is spot-on, the way things are panning out, we will do well to finish 3rd..Bring back the "Special One" all is forgiven!..

Keyse Xaraga (Arsenal fan) says...

I hope and pray arsenal win the league this year,pairing with barcelona is very scary specialy when we play second leg away.since we haven't spend any big money over the last few years it would be fantastic to win it ,but it won't be easy.

Homzie D (Manchester United fan) says...

First of all, Happy Birthday Merse! As a former Arsenal player, I can understand why you're hoping for United and Chelsea to drop points! United will be pumped, Old Trafford will be rocking and the fans know that we cannot afford to drop points at this stage in the season, least of all to our bitter rivals! Having beaten us the last 3 times, the players know that Liverpool cannot be underestimated. They always seem to turn up against United, which is why, it will be a difficult match. The key is Vidic v Torres. I think United will win 3-1. In the other game, Ewood Park is not an easy place to visit. Chelsea will be fired up after their CL exit. They will want to forget their midweek loss by winning at Blackburn. I reckon United 3 Liverpool 1 and Blackburn 1 Chelsea 3.

I disagree with paul, man united is in the best form of the season and they must have learnt from last year's heavy defeat at oldtrafod by liverpool and ofcourse Vidic's last 3 red cards as well rested the whole week while liverpool played on thursday, however, Rooney can take the lead as he s on his way to crown the worlds best player at the end of the season therefore i wish united wins 2-0 and liverpool plays europe league next season.

Sanketh Menon (Chelsea fan) says...

I have to disagree with Paul regarding the Chelsea match.I know that they are probably still trying to get over the shock of being knocked out of the CL but they thay have to understand that Inter were the better team between the two legs and move on(I really hope they have!).I feel that if they start concentrating on the League again they will definately win.Sure,playing Blackburn at Ewood Park will be tough but this is a pretty good Chelsea side at the moment and even though there are injury problems and they aren't playing their best football by a long-shot(and the fact that the squad is becoming too old and there is an increasing need for fresh young faces in the team),i think Chelsea have it in them to recover from the shock of being knocked out of the CL and beat BLackburn.Although i am sure that if Chelsea do win,it wont be too convincing.

Samuel Mwindula (Manchester United fan) says...

Liverpool have a great chance to stop Man united overtaking their record of 18 tittles but i don't think Sir Alex will let that happen at Old Trafford. I'll go for a 2 - 1 victory for united. Rooney and Torres.
