As Manchester United opened up a 5-point gap at the top of the Premier League yesterday, football analysts were saying that today's game at Anfield between Liverpool and Chelsea could effectively be a play-off for second spot.

United are looking a safe bet for the title, even after having a dreadful start to the season, and the other top teams' collective failures to capitalise have meant that the Reds need only to maintain their current 2nd-gear form to become champions in May.

Today's match between two inept sides who seem unable to take advantage of even a sub-standard United team, has therefore been billed by United fans as the Battle Of The Also-Rans, and the winners will go some way to cementing the tag of 'runners-up'.

Prediction: Liverpool 3rd Chelsea 2nd
