A decade or more ago the Toon looked near certainties to win the Premier League before a calamitous end of season collapse saw them had the Title to Man United. Fast forward and although this Title race doesn’t involve the Toon directly, indirectly they can virtually hand the Title to Man United again at the weekend if they beat Chelsea: ‘It is our job to help Man United win the title, and that’s not easy for me to say,’ Keegan told the media. ‘Yes, Chelsea are a big club and would be worthy champions as would Man United, but we have a chance now, having put together a run of six or seven games unbeaten, to see how far we’ve come by playing one of the big four.

‘I don’t have a preference at all. I just think the best team usually wins it – except the time we lost the title. The best team came second that time.’

A Toon victory over Chelsea coupled with a Man United win over West Ham would see Man United retain their Premier League crown for another season, but will Keegan’s men end the Chelsea bid?
