Kicked out of the European Champions League quarter final, losing 2-1 at home then throwing away a 2-0 home lead to settle for a 2-2 draw and with a return leg 1-0 defeat at Chelsea which saw them exiting from the English FA Cup semi-final, Sir Alex Ferguson is set to entertain his rivals from across town and who are the defending champions, Manchester City, on Monday. In a real battle to join the top four the unpredictable Everton, who are in 6th place, will be facing Tottenham Hotspurs.
When Alex Ferguson stated that his side will be going for the treble this season, few except the Red Devils’ loyalists took him seriously, because the current Manchester United squad hardly looked likely to take its place alongside other Manchester greats. It is Van Persie, at 29 years of age, who made the difference during the current season in which Ryan Giggs, at 38, and Paul Scholes at 37, command starting places in the team. Most pundits rather give credit to the turmoil within their rivals sides than to the excellence of the team. But here is Ferguson, at 70, leading the League season with fifteen points clear of second place Manchester City. Today’s match is expected to be a big showdown, but not because of the title race, but because it is a derby match. With Eight matches to go, the title is United’s to throw away, if they care to lose five of the remaining eight matches, which is almost unthinkable. However, football is unpredictable; anything is possible. Man. United leads the table with 77 points, while City is second with 62 points. Obviously, Roberto Mancini is on his way out and the dressing room is in total chaos with players like Yaya, Nasri and Company plotting a coup. If United wins the derby, the title race is as good as over, but if they lose on home ground, it might be something to talk about for another week. Instead, the Tottenham versus Everton clash at White Hart Lane has serious connotations for the home side who are currently third with 57 points and are fighting to play football in Europe next season. The visitors are in a race to finish fifth in the table to book a place in the UEFA Cup. Chelsea, fourth in the table with 55 points, are also geared to face visitors Sunderland, which kicked out Martin O’Neil from his coaching job last week and replaced him by troublemaker Paulo Di Canio.
