Barclays Premier League : The Penultimate Hurdle.

It all boils down to this weekend. All the hard work of the season comes down to this last round of matches.

Teams like Chelsea and Manchester United are slugging it out at the top of the table, whereas teams like Reading, Birmingham and Fulham are looking for survival.

I will however focus at the top of the table dog fight.

The form book says that in the last month Chelsea have had the better results compared to Manchester United. Both the teams won their matches last time out.

Man Utd brushing aside a lacklustre West Ham and Chelsea getting two at St. James' Park.

The last week sees Man Utd scheduled to play Wigan and Chelsea will face Bolton. Wigan are placed at a comfortable 13th position with 40 points. Bolton on the other hand have 36 points and face probable relegation if they lose by a big margin.

On the top, Chelsea will hope that Man Utd slip up, whereas Man Utd will be confident of winning against Wigan. The side managed by Steve Bruce, has performed wonders since his arrival at the JJB and have already got a point from Stamford Bridge.

Bolton are no no-hopers themselves. Last time at the Bridge they came away with a point in a hard fought encounter. This Bolton side, although weaker than last time on have Gary Megson who has already master minded a win over the reigning champions.

Chelsea will have the comfort of playing at home and Avram Grant will be praying for a slip up from Man Utd, his managerial record at the Bridge is nothing short of impressive.

Sir Alex will however not feel the heat as he has been in plenty of such situations. All that he will look to avoid are injuries. He will be hoping that they go into the UCL final with a positive result from the JJB.

So there is all to play for in the BPL and be prepared for nerve racking moments... not only from the top of the table but also from the bottom.
