A big snowstorm hit England on Saturday, threatening to jeopardize the slate of matches set for today, but the big headliner between Chelsea and Manchester United will go on as planned, and it will serve as the marquee match of a busy day in the soccer world.
While the Super Bowl dominates the American sports landscape today, soccer fans here will have plenty to choose from for their viewing pleasures, topped off with the big Chelsea-United clash. The Blues are at home and need a win to solidify their place in the English Premier League's top four, while Manchester United must win to keep pace with Manchester City for first place.
if you think Chelsea-Man United is the day's only big match, think again. There are quality showdowns all over the globe. In Italy, Juventus will look to stay unbeaten with a win against Siena, while AC Milan faces a much tougher task, needing to beat a tough Napoli side to try and close the gap on Juve.
In Spain, Atletico Madrid and Sevilla square off, while Brazil brings us a juicy clash between Neymar-led Santos against Palmeiras.
In Mexico, DaMarcus Beasley and Puebla go up against Edgar Castillo, Joey Corona, Greg Garza and Club Tijuana in the day's match featuring the most Americans.
