Riding the wave of a five-match winning streak, Chelsea face Manchester United Sunday with a chance to reinforce their own Premier League credentials and read the last rites to their opponents' title defense.Chelsea are in the slipstream of leaders Arsenal, who host Fulham Saturday, and second-placed Manchester City, who entertain Cardiff City, but United are way off the pace.Perhaps more pressing, however, is the fact that a reverse could leave United eight points adrift of fourth place and Champions League qualification if Liverpool beat Aston Villa Saturday.Chelsea were cautious in the teams' clash at Old Trafford in August, which finished in a goalless draw, but with Arsenal and Manchester City both at home this weekend, dropped points could see them hand the initiative to their rivals.
