LET'S get one thing straight – if Chelsea beat Man United tonight the only side to benefit will be grieving Gunners.
Chelsea – 15 points adrift with a game in hand – can't make up that ground and Sir Alex Ferguson is right to say it's a two-horse title race between United and Arsenal.
And that could soon be a one-team canter to the line if Arsenal repeat the horror defending that handed Birmingham the Carling Cup Final on Sunday.
Bookies reckoned Obafemi Martins' winner saved them upwards of £10million but I warned readers on Saturday the Gunners would struggle without Cesc Fabregas and Theo Walcott and I hope you listened.
The industry agree with Ferguson the championship trophy is heading to Old Trafford or the Emirates.
Victory tonight would ease Fergie's men seven points clear but a ninth away draw of the season is my call.
Chelsea won't lie down as they need the points for a Champions League place but with Fernando Torres still finding his feet they might struggle to break a defence that's mean when Rio Ferdinand's there.
The Blues are a best 6-5 with Stan James and United 14-5 with Chandler. he draw pays 23-10 with Hills and Chandler.
The Spaniard is 6-5 with Hills just to score and 7-1 with the same firm not to net in his next five matches against United, Blackpool, Copenhagen, Man City and Stoke.
Having escaped a ban for elbowing James McCarthy at Wigan, Wayne Rooney is 13-2 with bet365.
