The long English Premier League season is winding down to a close and this weekend will feature the match that could determine the EPL champion.
Leaders Manchester United travel to Chelsea on Saturday with a chance to essentially lock up the title with a victory. Chelsea will look to pull even with Manchester United with a victory, which would make the final two weeks of the season VERY interesting.
This weekend’s schedule of matches begin with Man U-Chelsea, but there are plenty of other quality match-ups. Here is the SBI Top Five matches to watch this weekend:
- Manchester United at Chelsea. Yes, it’s at 7am, and its on Setanta, but these are the games you wake up early for.
- Aston Villa at Everton. A place in the UEFA Cup hangs in the balance as the red-hot Villains look to catch the reeling Toffees.
- Schalke 04 at Hamburg. A win can help Hamburg catch Schalke for the final Champions League berth in the Bundesliga.
- Reading at Wigan. Marcus Hahnemann and the Royals need a win, or at least a draw here, to stay out of the relegation zone.
- Chivas USA at Los Angeles Galaxy. Yes, both teams have struggled badly this year, but there’s no way there aren’t goals scored in this game.
