Pivotal Day In The Title Race
Welcome back to this Soccer Saturday, the 3:00pm kick offs are underway, Charlie and Merse are following the two games at the top of the table, Chelsea currently sitting top one point clear of Manchester United with three games to go both at tricky grounds this afternoon, we'll get to the KC stadium with United's game with Hull City in just a minute but let's start at White Hart Lane Paul how have Chelsea begun..
(3mins) Spurs have started on the front foot here but not much to report on at this point.
(4mins) GOAL!! 1-0
to United and it' a terrible error from Allan McGregor. Fellaini played the ball to Rooney, he fizzed in a ball right across goal which took multiple deflections and the goalie failed to collect instead letting it roll over his hands, terrible start for the home side but what a start for Man U.
Equalizing goal for Hull City and it's one of there stand out performers Elmohamady who has got it. He skips past McNair like he wasn't there and hits a venomous shot that flies straight past De Gea, 1-1
what a start to this game!
(25mins) Not alot happening here Jeff, the away fans have heard about the Hull City goal though and are making themselves heard but not alot for them to cheer about watching there team right now.
(37mins) Oh that's a terrible challenge from Huddlestone, Rooney's in some discomfort that's surely got to be..OH DEAR ME IT'S RED! the ref had no hesitation and now the home side are a man light and there's still over 50 minutes of game time to play yet.
(50mins) ROONEY! 2-1
Man United back in the driving seat and move top of the table as it stands, Young hits a lovely pass to Fellaini, he puts the ball into the six yard box and who's there but the Captain Wayne Rooney to tap in!
(51mins) WHAT A CHANCE! John Terry had the goal gaping but puts his header over, they will be kicking themselves and you can hear the fans letting them know whats happening at the KC.
(74mins) What a brilliant save from De Gea! Elmohamady nearly has his second with a thunderous effort on goal, great stop by the Spaniard to preserve United's lead.
What a match, Elmohamady does get his second after all! The corner comes in and he connects first time from 6 yards out De Gea with no chance. The ten men are back in this against the odds 2-2
(78mins) The pressure is really being put on the home side by Chelsea, Hazard has shown glimpses of his brilliance but Costa has been kept quiet all afternoon. Neither team wants to take a real initiative in this title race do they.
(80mins) There back in front it's 3-2
! Robin van Persie has only been on the pitch a couple of minutes but he straight away is fed through on goal and calmly slots it past McGregor, if this is his parting gift for United then what a gift it could be!
to Chelsea! Oh my god what is Kyle Walker thinking, he makes it such an easy decision for Lee Mason and what a chance for Chelsea to win this!..............................................It's Hazard Jeff and we know what he's like from the spot *whistles all around the stadium* he steps up..1-0
! Hazard is the hero, some of the fans have ran onto the pitch there all over the Belgian they know how important this goal could be in two weeks time!
Oh dear oh dear oh dear..it's 3-3
! There all over the place at the back and with Hull pressing they just didn't look comfortable, Hernandez has taken full advantage stroking a neat finish into the bottom left hand corner..what a blow in this incredible title race for United!
There goes the final whistle and Chelsea have won by a goal to nil courtesy of Eden Hazard's penalty a minute from time, it's also over at the KC and it's a unhappy day if you are a reds supporter. A topsy turvey game has ended with the points shared and that does United's title chances no good what so ever as Chelsea open up a three point lead at the top of the table with just two games to go. Chelsea fans will think one more win should do it considering there better goal difference, a great day for Chelsea fans but one to reflect on with disappointment for Manchester United supporters. Aside from all the drama at the top QPR are relegated this evening despite thrashing Arsenal 4-1 earlier today which now means just one more relegation sport remains. So many questions still to be answered as we go into the final two weeks of the season.
Who will be lifting the Barclays Premier League trophy come May?
