Super Sunday will see either a new era for the blue half of the Manchester or the Red half continue their dominance in the Premiership. Both teams still are on the target to claim the title. There is also two champion league spot on offer, Tottenham, Arsenal and Newcastle are fight for it while either QPR or Bolton could get relegated.
Champion Sunday will see either the blue or red half of the Manchester be crowned. For City, who is leading with a goal difference, will be crowned if they win their game over QPR. Both teams are in the need for the three points, City three will see them win the Premiership since 1967/68, however the three points will also see QPR avoid relegation. They sit just 2 points away from Bolton with a better goal difference, so a draw is also doable for the away team. That isn’t going to work for City and Roberto Mancini with the Saudi multi-billionaire owners. They will need Yaya Toure further up the field to support either Tevez or Augero, then the goals will flow. I really can’t see anything but a City win and maybe sending QPR in the process down to the championship.
United will be travelling up north to face Martin O’Neill’s Sunderland mid-table side. The Black Cats could well do City a favour if they play up to United, however when do you really sees United failing in the last hurdle. Manager Sir Alex Ferguson will have to throw all his major players to get the goals, but of course, seven is a bit of a score but a win will at least give them some hope to rest their fate from the Eithad Stadium. Clearly, they have the attacking options of Ashley Young, Valencia, Nani and Wayne Rooney. But they are missing one thing and that is that game winner player all season. What is truly the case is that United head to head with City that has made the difference this season.

Champions League Chase:
Arsenal is in the driving seat for the third place and an away win over WBA is all that is required after a hectic start to the season. They are currently one point above local rivals, Tottenham, while two above Newcastle. Out of the two, Spurs have the easier tie as they go into a local London derby against Fulham. Fulham are tricky these days with a hot firing Clint Dempsey and the Cottagers London derby head to head are in the top bracket this season, so Martin Jol is doing something right. Now that Spurs manager Harry Redknapp isn’t likely to be England manager in his life time, he can start to think about the season ahead with the north London club, if he wants to keep Luka Modric, then a fourth place in the Premier League is a must. This leaves just the surprising Newcastle bunch taking to get into Europe, they will, it will be either the Europa League or Champions League. The latter one will be sweeter and rewarding them for both Demba Ba and Papiss Cisse goal spree in each half of the season, then the Geordies will have to one more tricky tie to fight off and hope the others to drop points.
There is more to Arsenal than the naked eye. They have one leader that has lead the Gunners to the top half of the Premiership and his goal service will be welcoming as they travel to the midlands. Of the three tie, Spurs does look to have the easy one but with their recent form, anything can happen but Spurs are settling down ever since Hodgson was appointed as England Manager. This leaves just Everton to ruin Newcastle’s season end and both in-form team looks likely hit out on a draw. So that leaves the two London club to make their way into the next season champions league.

Avoid the drop:
Two candidates, one relegation spot and Sunday will see either Bolton or QPR go down. New comers QPR have a tough tie as mention above that they are going to face City. If they don’t get a point there then Bolton has to get those three points at the Britannia Stadium to save themselves from the drop. Only a win is on Owen Coyles mind and that in their grasp in the final minutes against WBA last weekend. But poor defending and lack of concentration saw that Bolton had to settle with a 2-2 draw. They won’t make that mistake this weekend against Stoke and surely
