Premiership run-in

Guest Author - Alice Jones

With just four weeks to go, the English Premier League 2007 - 2008 season is all set up for an exciting finish, as Chelsea moved to within 2 points of leaders Manchester United last night, beating Everton 1-0 at Goodison Park.

Chelsea manager Avram Grant has been under immense pressure in recent weeks from the British Press, particularly the written media, after a 1-1 draw against strugglers Wigan Athletic. He responded in kind by conducting an awkward Press Conference after the match. One word “yes or no” answers were the order of the day.

Even if Chelsea win the League, questions have been raised in the newspapers about his position at the club, which is somewhat unkind considering the comeback that Chelsea have made in the second half of the season. Whether owner Roman Abramovich will stick with the manager is unknown.

Manchester United travel to Blackburn tomorrow, and victory will put daylight between them and Avram Grant's side, though the two sides will meet at Stamford Bridge on the 26th April. The stakes could not be higher and could yet decide the title, although United must be favourites at this stage.

Manager Sir Alex Ferguson will be pleased to have secured new contracts for three of his key players, confirming that defenders Rio Ferdinand and Wes Brown and midfielder Michael Carrick have all put pen to paper this week.

"They have agreed new deals," "It continues our policy of lengthening contracts at the right time” Ferguson commented.
Early front runners Arsenal's title hopes faded some weeks ago, with a string of disappointing results, Arsene Wenger's side will have to settle for 3rd place at best, while Liverpool look almost certain to secure the 4th place and final Champions League spot for next season.

The remaining games for Manchester United are as follows: Blackburn away, Chelsea Away, West Ham at home, Wigan at Home.

The remaining games for Chelsea are: Manchester United at home, Newcastle United away, Wigan Athletic at home.

It is Manchester United's title to lose, but you never know with Chelsea, they are not giving up yet.
