Difficult to see how QPR can stop United's charge

A month ago, when Manchester City led neighbours United by two points, it seemed inconceivable the English Premier League title race would be virtually decided by early April. What was a three-horse race, until Tottenham dropped away, now looks likely to turn into a triumphal procession for United.

No wonder the FA Cup semi-finalists have been complaining so vociferously about this weekend's trip south to Wembley - most of them don't know their way there.

Vialli brought down to earth

THE Chelsea Miracle, alias the Gianluca Vialli Revival, was of somewhat brief duration. Arsenal were duly and dramatically eliminated from the League Cup semi-finals in the Stamford Bridge return, after Vialli had given each player a half-glass of champagne before the match, and Mark Hughes had set the tone with some gratuitously aggressive play.
