Week 36 of the Premier League means that there is very little time left for times to stake their places in the table. Who will survive the drop? Who will be relegated? Who will win the title? This weekend’s fixtures will go a long way in defining those positions.
At the time of writing it is looking ever more likely that David Moyes will be sacked as manager of Manchester United, which means that this weekend’s match could be an interesting one. This could also bode well for Norwich City and their quest for survival. (UPDATE) With Giggs taking over as manager for United, it should be enough to get these players playing, and playing more attacking football as well.
Teams like Manchester City, Manchester United, Hull City, Aston Villa, West Brom, and Sunderland all have matches in hand to be played later, which adds to the drama the end of this season.
While Jose Mourinho has said that he plans to play a “weakened” side this weekend, just remember that Chelsea has a deep bench and Mourinho is not one to give up a match, especially to any title rival pretenders. He will be looking to win this match and has the team and tactics to do so, the question is whether the players believe this as well.
