English Premiership draws to a close

Blackburn tied Man U at Erwood Park which leaves Chelsea three points behind the leaders, but United still dominant on goal difference. For me its anyone but the Mancs but realistically speaking its United's title to lose and I can't see them doing that.

Liverpool have all but secured 4th spot in the League (which means CL next season). Fulham were left wanting today as the Reds B team won 2-0 with goals from Pennant and Crouch (a useful combination that offers Benitez some options in the Champions League).

All the focus now though is on the Anfield encounter with Chelsea in the CL semi-finals this tuesday .The 'smart money' is backing Chelsea but then that was the case as well in 2005 and 2007 with Liverpool emerging victorious on both occasions.
As a Liverpool supporter I would prefer the first leg to be at Stamford Bridge but I have faith that the Reds can prevail regardless of the scheduling.

My predictions for relegation are: Derby (done deal), Fulham and Reading.

I am also goiung out on a bit of a limb here and backing Torres to reach 25 league goals by seasons end (assuming no injuries) - what a prize he has turned out to be. Our best striker since Rush?.......Perhaps....sorry Robbie Fowler fans.
