As the world holds its breath, Cazza evaluates the relative strengths of the key Manchester United and Chelsea performers.
The fact that Man Utd and Chelsea are on level points in the Premiership and set to meet in the Champions League final means we are in for a terrifically exciting finish to the season. They have been the two finest sides in England over the past few years, and it is fitting that they will end the season squaring off for two of the most prestigious titles in football.
CECH vs.VAN DER SAR
Some people have suggested that Cech hasn’t looked the same player since he suffered his head injury against Reading a couple of years back, but I still feel he’s an absolutely top-class ’keeper. He’s also had a few injuries this season which have kept him out of a total of 22 games, but when he’s been in the team he has been as effective as ever. Under Mourinho, Chelsea’s defence was the bedrock of the team, and they remain a tough team to score against. Cech is a big part of the reason why. I still rate him as the best goalkeeper in the Premiership.
