Manchester United officially captured the Premier League title with a 3-0 win over Aston Villa on April 22nd and having been knocked out of the Champions League and the FA Cup, and with the points record out of reach, the last several matches really don’t mean much for the Red Devils. Robin van Persie has all but captured the scoring title (25 goals) with his closest competitor Luis Suarez (23 goals) suspended for the remainder of the season so there is no real suspense there either. For United the drama of the 2012-2013 season is over, but with rival Chelsea coming to town on Sunday don’t expect the Red Devils to lay down. As one of the most successful clubs in history, Manchester United prides itself on competing in each match not just for the club, but also for the loyal fans that expect greatness at all times.

On the other side, Chelsea is in a much different situation. Currently sitting 3rd in the table with 65 points, The Blues are just one point ahead of Arsenal, three points ahead of Tottenham, and six points ahead of Everton in the table. With four matches left on the schedule, a top four finish is far from secured especially with remaining matches against Spurs and Everton still to come. On top of their top four chase, Chelsea is also in the midst of a Europa League title pursuit, which adds even more pressure to an already pressurized final month. With rumors swirling concerning the return of “The Special One,” Jose Mourinho, to the club as manager over the summer, players will not only be playing for a Champions League spot, they will also be playing for contracts in anticipation of what could be a lot of turnover in a new regime.

The bottom line is that Chelsea has much more to lose on Sunday. Let’s take a look at some of the key players to watch as The Blues visit the Red Devils.
