King Ing May 11, 2008 1

Entering the final day of league play, Manchester United and Chelsea found themselves tied for the league lead. The Red Devils controlled their own destiny as they had a commanding advantage in the goal differential tie-breaker over the Blues. Things looked good early as Cristiano Ronaldo scored on his penalty attempt against Wigan. The Blues put the pressure back on in their game having Andriy Shevchenko score 21 minutes into the second half against Bolton. Fortunately for the defending Premier League champions, they had always reliable Ryan Giggs on their side. The aforementioned Giggs came on as a substitute 15 minutes earlier and scored a beautiful goal that put Man U. comfortably ahead and secured their 10th League championship. Chelsea ended up in a 1-1 tie, but more importantly lost team captain John Terry to a serious shoulder injury. His status for next weeks Champions League final is in doubt. The two top teams from England meet for the most prestigious club championship in the world May 21st in Moscow.
