West Ham to Deny Man Utd Another Title?
Not only has a Manchester United game become a bit of a banker but West Ham have more than once stopped Manchester United taking the title. West Ham have nothing to play for but pride on Saturday whereas the Manchester United players could be forgiven for being more than a little nervous. So could West Ham be the title destroyers once again?
Much will probably depend on the fitness of Upson. I can't see Neil and Tomkins keeping out the normally rampant Man Utd attack. Alan Curbishley certainly seems to be hinting that Tomkins could be in the side,
"Some of the players who have perhaps only seen [Old Trafford] on the TV might get a chance, you know it could be another learning curve for one or two of them," said the West Ham manager.
For me the game will also be one of those odd games that sometimes occur at the end of a season when you don't mind too much if your team loses because of the impact it will have on other teams. So whilst I would like to see West Ham continue their recent run of wins against Man Utd I won't be overly upset if a West Ham loss denies Chelsea the title.
