Reds could now secure title against Man City.

So then, United's league game with Chelsea has been put back to May 9th, which will be our second to last game of the Premiership season, by the time that game comes around the Reds could, if all things go well, be champions. However, as all longstanding United fans know, we don't do things the easy way and so it is likely to be a grim fight to the death and the very last kick of the season.

United fans have been looking at the fixture list and going through the various what ifs and maybes. The prospect of winning the title against Man City is one to savour - some where hoping City might also need the points to avoid relegation, but given Boro's giveaway three points last weekend, the pressure is off from that perspective. City fans will be hoping that they can stop United from winning the title when the two sides meet. However, on the same day, Chelsea face Arsenal away and so if the Gunners won that game and even if United lost against City, the Reds could still end up being the champs that day....

If United did manage to secure the title before the Chelsea game, would the current champions welcome the newly crowned champs with a guard of honour as the Reds walk out onto the Stamford Bridge turf? We shall see.

I'm actually very surprised that between Chelsea and Sky tv, they haven't managed to get the game scheduled for earlier in the season so as to put more heat on the Reds.

The pressure is very much on both United and Chelsea, there is no margin for error.
