Two of the storied sides in the EPL are going to be squaring off on Sunday in the biggest game on the Premier League schedule this week, as Manchester United faces the Chelsea Football Club!

Right now, it doesn’t look like there is anything out there that can stop any of the Manchester sides. Both Manchester United and Manchester City ended up drawing 1-1 in their first Champions League matches on Wednesday, so perhaps both are there for the taking, but you know that Manager Sir Alex Fergusson was more concerned about this week’s match against the Blues.

The Red Devils are 4-0-0 on the campaign and are a whopping +15 already in goal differential. Rio Ferdinand should be back in the fold this week after missing the UCL affair with Benfica on Wednesday, and he should help out a defense which has been fantastic. The only questionable part of this unit is the play of keeper David De Gea. De Gea was replaced for the first round Champions League duel by Anders Lindegaard, but he will be back in the saddle for this one.

Wayne Rooney already has eight goals scored this year, and he has been so good that his skipper has compared him to the legendary Pele. To put all of that in comparison, Chelsea has seven goals in total in the same four games.

It’s not like the Blues have been slacking, though. They are 3-1-1, and their one draw came at a game Stoke City side trying to prove that it truly belongs in the EPL on the opening day of the season. Since that point, Chelsea FC has won four straight fixtures, including a Champions League tie with Bayer Leverkusen at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday.

On this fantastic run of four matches, the Blues have scored nine goals by nine different players. Names like John Terry, Frank Lampard, and Nicolas Anelka have had their share of duels here at Old Trafford, and the hope is that experience against the Red Devils will pay dividends this weekend.

Petr Cech spent two weeks out of action with a knee injury, but he came back last week. Though he couldn’t keep a clean sheet in a 2-1 win against Sunderland, he did leave the donut on the board against Bayer on Tuesday. This is a challenge like he hasn’t seen this season though, and this could be incredibly difficult to keep United off of the scoreboard.

Last year, there were five meetings between these two teams. Man U took down the Community Shield at the outset of the season, and then won three of the four clashes during the season, including both in the Champions League quarterfinals. Chelsea’s lone win was at Stamford Bridge in March, a 2-1 decision. The Blues did beat United in all three 2009 meetings.

Don’t be shocked if this is a close run tie for the entire way. The Red Devils are slender -120 favorites on the three-way soccer lines at Bet365. The ‘total’ has been set at 2.5, over -105.
