The Double Champions: ManU and Man City?

The EPL have some interesting match going on today. The first of the most notable game is between ManU and Blackburn. Manchester United is trying to make history in the Premier League by breaking records and re-writing history books. A draw with Blackburn will adjudged them as champions for 2010-2011 EPL season but a loss will give Chelsea a little room to breathe if they manage to win their remaining last two games because an EPL tie-breaker will be decided through goal difference. While Blackburn are trying to escape from a very crowded relegation area and a win will boost their chance to survive from being relegated.

But it is not just about winning trophies, it’s also about trying to fight for survival and avoid being relegated. At the bottom end of the table, the Rovers are not alone in the fight; the Wolves and Blackpool are into it as well. They are only separated by 2 and 3 points respectively, and any slip up will hurt them very badly in their fighting chance to survive in the Premier League. While Birmingham City is trying as well, their luck in their match at home against Fulham tomorrow.

Perhaps, the biggest game that will happen today (at least in my perspective) is Man City’s game against Stoke in FA Cup final at Wembley which also happened to be the venue of the Champions League final between ManU and Barca later this month. It’s on 28 May to be exact but that’s another thing to talk about. Manchester City is facing a defining moment by attempting to end the football club’s 35 years drought and seeking their first piece of silverware.

So, grab a seat and don’t miss English Premier League’s football action. I’m sure you won’t be able to be on two different venues at the same time considering the time strap of the match.
