At least, that's how they're usually built-up. It could be something to do with the fact that United and Blackburn have been the only ever winners of the Premiership, but again tonight, the importance of game in terms of trophy destination is high. United's record against Blackburn at Ewood Park is good, having won there on the last 3 occasions. Overall, our record against them is excellent, losing just once in the previous 11 meetings. But that one loss hurt, obviously you never like to lose, but in the 1993-94 season United at one stage had opened a sizeable gap over the rest of the field and looked odds-on to retain the title. Slowly but surely Blackburn chipped away at the gap and the media were promoting the match as a six-pointer. Blackburn at the time had the momentum going into the game and Shearer (annoyingly) got the two goals. Fortunately, history shows United did the double that season. The following season it was Blackburn's turn to win the title, so United's turn to win at Ewood Park. As they say: "The game had everything". Henning Berg, playing for Blackburn of course, was controversially (no matter how tinted your red spectacles are) sent off early in the first half for a 'challenge' on Lee Sharpe. Cantona converted the penalty and that decision lost the game for Blackburn. Amazingly they twice came back to equalise, but in the end the 10 men were no match for the 11 men. The Blackburn fixture during 1995-96 occurred early on in the season. Blackburn had now taken United's throne as Champions and this game was seen as an early season indicator to test United's mettle in the Championship challenge. The kids were beginning to get use to the rigours of the Premiership and it was David Beckham, after a penalty area scramble, who gave United the lead, the three points and the belief that the title could be won with kids. Last season's meeting between the two was late on and United needed the points to extended their lead at the top and get themselves clear of the scrap forming below them. This was Andy Cole's day, scoring one and having a hand in the other two, the performance was a perfect display of how his game has improved since joining United. Lets hope for a similar result tonight.

Peter Schmeichel, Gary Pallister, Nicky Butt and Ryan Giggs trained this week and are in contention to face Blackburn at Ewood Park - and as far as one former United and Rovers star at least is concerned they may make the difference for the Reds. Former Republic of Ireland international Kevin Moran said: ``As we all know injuries have taken a big toll on United, and it's possible as a team they were focused on Europe. ``The key thing for United is that they are getting players back. That's crucial for them and that gives the whole side a big lift.'' Schmeichel and Giggs have been struggling with hamstring injuries, while Pallister has been blighted by a back problem and Butt a calf complaint. United's FA Carling Premiership title rivals Arsenal, by contrast, are losing players through injury and suspension, and Moran believes this and their hectic run-in could tip the title odds in his old team's favour. ``From United's point of view it's nice to have the points, but it's also out of their control,'' he said. ``They must look to other clubs to take some points off Arsenal. ``It's going to be very difficult for Arsenal, though, especially nearer the end when they will be chock-a-block with game upon game. ``They are still involved in the Cup, and I think this could take its toll on the club. ``They have a problem in that they are not going to get many goals, especially with Dennis Bergkamp being suspended and Ian Wright trying to get back. ``The young lads up front have done well, but I wonder if they can continue to get the goals. ``I still feel it will be United and I think they will just pip Arsenal for the title.'' Teddy Sheringham will also be available after suspension for the Blackburn game, and Moran feels both sides will be desperate to win the match for different reasons. United need a victory to double their lead over Arsenal to six points, while Rovers are anxious to secure a UEFA Cup spot. Moran said: ``It's always a big game but it has that extra edge because of the positions of the two clubs. ``United are going for the championship, while Blackburn are going for the UEFA Cup, so there's a lot at stake.'' Moran has been greatly impressed by what Rovers boss Roy Hodgson has done since he took over in the summer. Hodgson has sold £18million worth of talent, but his side are still riding high in the Premiership. ``I think he deserves an awful lot of credit,'' said Moran. ``In essence it's the same squad which has been around for the last couple of years, although he has had to sell the likes of Henning Berg and Graeme Le Saux. ``But they've coped brilliantly, and for me Roy Hodgson is an outstanding manager.''

And the big defender admits the next eight days could decide the destiny of the Premiership. United's comfortable lead has been whittled away during a miserable March by Arsenal, and Arsene Wenger's men turned up the heat with a midweek win at Bolton. It left them three points behind the Reds with two games still in hand, and everyone talking about a head-to-head over the last few weeks. Liverpool, who have flattered to deceive once again this season, lie off the pace in third today, nine points adrift of the champions. But Pallister said: ``Forget the title battle being a two-horse race - there are three contenders in my book. ``A lot of people have been talking about United and Arsenal recently, and that's fair enough because the table shows we are out in front. But I really don't think you can ignore Liverpool from the equation yet. Be prepared for a grandstand finish ``Remember, they have to play both ourselves and Arsenal. Two key wins there and they will fancy their chances, so in some ways they still have the title destiny in their own hands. ``And with Steve McManaman and Michael Owen in their team, it would be daft to rule them out. Hopefully, though, we can end their hopes by beating them on Good Friday.'' Pally, 32, has been out with a back injury since January but has penciled in a return for next week's crucial double-header with north west rivals - first at Blackburn on Monday and then Liverpool at Old Trafford. United picked up just four points from a possible 12 last month but Pallister added: ``I said a few weeks ago that we never assumed the title was ours and Arsenal's run has made that seem like wise words. But we are still top and can go nine points clear if we win those next two big games. ``Another advantage is that Arsenal have games coming up thick and fast and I know from experience how difficult it can be to keep up a consistent level of performance when you seem to be playing two or three times a week. ``People might look at United's results recently and think `what is going on?' The fact is we have had an injury crisis beyond anything we have ever known at the club. ``You can't lose world-class players like Ryan Giggs, Peter Schmeichel and Roy Keane without paying some sort of price. We have been digging out results when we can but haven't been able to keep a rhythm going. Hopefully things are starting to clear up on the injury front now. ``Whatever happens, it looks set for a grandstand finish and it's a strange situation when the crowd are half watching your game and half trying to find out the scores from other grounds. ``I admit curiosity gets the better of you when it comes down to the wire and I'm sure we'll know what is happening to Arsenal and Liverpool if they are our rivals in the last couple of weeks.'' A Manchester United is for life, not just for christmas. --------------------------------------------------------- JacKiT@indigo.ie --------------------------------------------------------- If tomorrow was today, it would be yesterday.
