    That's a bit early. I see Chelsea as favourites too, but 5 points with 25 games to go is far from being over.

    Realistically, only ManU has a chance to snatch it from them and it's true they've been less convincing than Chelsea so far but there's simply too many games to go...

    i just don't see utd beating up on the little teams the same way they have in the past 3 seasons. only thing i can see that will stop chelsea winning the league is if they pick up a lot of injuries.

    Who knows? There's always January... I wouldn't be surprised if AF shifted Nani elsewhere and so would have space for a new reinforcement.

    true but i can't see them singing anyone that will make a huge impact.

    Half-time Arsenal 0-2 Chelsea....

    I think Chelsea look like the most complete side in The Prem at the moment, and they're going to take some stopping.
    In my opinion, Manchester United are the only side capable of challenging, and let's not forget that they always 'come good' after Christmas...
    I wouldn't bet against either of them winning it at this stage.

    A good result but still too early to call it trev. Chelsea have a habit of dropping points in the later stages and there is only 5 in it.

    TBH- there is one other thing that may work in United favour- The African nations cup in january when chelsea will lose quite a few players and United will lose hardly anyone.

    Anyway in the mean time its nice not having to read the usual BS posts from Roony one a blue and Rag

    I'd have to say that a 5 pt lead in November far from guarantees a win at the end of the season, but Chelsea are looking very strong, Ancelotti is doing a very good job at keeping them well organised, their tactics are impressive, and they have more depth than Utd. I don't think they're going to run away with the league, but things are definitely tipping in their favour.

    What might be slightly more interesting is the number of teams that are going to be fighting for a Champions League spot.

    The big test will be their ability to cope without Drogba and Essien. These two are simply too good to not be missed.

    but a realistic one, unlike Rag and Roony Once A Blue! (the fair-weather United fans)
