    Manchester United will be lifting the Premier League trophy on Sunday evening.

    That is the unanimous verdict of the Soccer Saturday panel who are all predicting that United will win at Wigan on Super Sunday to claim back-to-back league titles.

    Jeff Stelling

    MANCHESTER UNITED - Chelsea will get the win they need against Bolton and as for the other huge game at the JJB, it's worth pointing out the fact that Wigan are on a good run, unbeaten in their last seven home games. I think it will be really tight there, but I think Manchester United will get the win they need to retain the Premier League title.

    Phil Thompson


    Who will be picking up the Premier League trophy?

    MANCHESTER UNITED - I think both United and Chelsea are in a rich vein of form, although Chelsea are probably slightly ahead in the form stakes. They're not as attractive as United, but they've got more players on top form. However, I don't think the games in front of either of them are going to be a problem and I can see both teams winning their games 2-0. Wigan's players will be up for it because they are playing United, but an edge has been taken away now they are safe and I can see United taking the title.


    Charlie Nicholas


    Who will be picking up the Premier League trophy?

    MANCHESTER UNITED - I went for Manchester United at the start of the season and there's no reason to change my mind. I think it will be extremely tough for them at Wigan and I'm getting quite excited about the drama we're going to see on Sunday. I expect Chelsea to win their game comfortably and their fans will be tuning in to Soccer Special for news from the JJB and I think we might even have to wait for the last 10 minutes for United to seal it. We're in for an unpredictable afternoon, but I think the quality of United will come through.


    Paul Merson

    Who will be picking up the Premier League trophy?
    MANCHESTER UNITED - It will be quite fitting that they win the Premier League title on goal difference as of the two teams at the top, one team is an attacking, entertaining team and the other is pretty negative when they hit the front, so they will pay the price really. It should be an eventful afternoon though. It doesn't get much tighter than this.


    Matt Le Tissier


    Who will be picking up the Premier League trophy?

    MANCHESTER UNITED - Wigan's overall record against the big boys has been pretty poor since they came into the Premier League so it's all in United's hands - but stranger things have happened. Weird and wonderful things often occur on the last day as we saw in 1995 when United failed to beat West Ham. This is a similar scenario but while I expect Chelsea to beat Bolton 2-0 or 3-0, I think Man United will overcome Wigan 2-1. But it could come down to a late goal and there will be plenty of drama.


    Paul Walsh


    Who will be picking up the Premier League trophy?
    MANCHESTER UNITED - I feel United are good enough, strong enough and mentally prepared to get a result at Wigan. I'm sure Steve Bruce won't do his old boss any favours, but I don't think he'll be sat in the dressing room before the game trying to rev his players up. He'd never admit it, but having achieved safety he'll simply tell his players to go out and enjoy themselves. It will be hard for Wigan to push themselves and while they might play some good relaxed football, I just think United will beat them and it won't matter what Chelsea do.


    Chris Kamara


    Who will be picking up the Premier League trophy?
    MANCHESTER UNITED - I think both United and Chelsea will win their games comfortably. I just can't see Wigan upsetting United because they're safe and their players are in the comfort zone. If they needed a point to survive then the scenario would be different, but players' mentalities change if they know they are safe. We had a similar situation with Sunderland last weekend and it was one of my bets of the century that Bolton couldn't lose that game. The fear isn't there for Wigan and they can't wait for their holidays.


    Alan McInally

    Who will be picking up the Premier League trophy?

    MANCHESTER UNITED - Wigan took a point off Chelsea and I keep wondering if they can do the same to Manchester United. But I don't think Steve Bruce will be that bothered about denying United the title and I think Sir Alex Ferguson will get the win he needs. Wigan have done really well to survive, but let's look at the facts: Manchester United simply need to beat Wigan and they will be champions of England - surely that is going to happen.


    Tony Cottee


    Who will be picking up the Premier League trophy?
    MANCHESTER UNITED - Without a doubt Manchester United are going to do it because the goal difference is such a big plus for them. Wigan have got nothing to play for and I just think United will be too strong. Very rarely over the years have they not got the result they've needed in this sort of situation and I can see both them and Chelsea winning their games 2-0. I can't see Steve Bruce winding his players up too much - I think we can all guess who he'd rather won the league!


    Tony Gale


    Who will be picking up the Premier League trophy?
    MANCHESTER UNITED - Manchester United will beat Wigan and that means Chelsea's result will be irrelevant. I'm sure Steve Bruce will take the game totally honestly, but there's so much on it for Man United, they simply won't make any mistakes. The pitch will have an impact on the game, but I just think United are too good.


    Alan Smith

    Who will be picking up the Premier League trophy?
    MANCHESTER UNITED - It might not be quite as straightforward as many people would imagine but I really can't see them slipping up, given Wigan are safe as well. Having said that, it will be a big game for them and they will play with freedom and could be dangerous, but I still think United will have enough. They would be more than worthy champions if they do it.

    So I guess we can all relax a little now.We are going to be Champions. :)

    As long as we score early on in the game our nerves will be fine.
    If the game is half way through the second half and we havent scored, our nerves will be..:nervous:


    But who cares? Who will be lifting the Premier League trophy on Sunday evening?

    don't get me wrong I'm very confident about our chances, but it would be even sweeter for the chelsea fans if they win it :(

    It would be sweet also for us to beat Wigan and Chelsea to lose at SB; to prove to everyone that we are the better and deserving team.

    This place would explode with all the ABU threads if they all say Chelsea to be honest.

    I have to agree with them. I just cannot see anything other than a win for us. We know what's at stake, just like we did against WH. There will be a huge crowd there for us and they'll be singing their hearts out, they'll push the team on, I'm quite confident :devil:

    I have put a bottle of champagne in the fridge on two occasions now, once when we were playing Chelsea and again when they were playing Newcastle. Not going to risk Sunday or could it be third time lucky!?

    Way more important than all of that, Lawro reckons we will win 3-0. God knows Lawro is always right.

    All their predictions of victory for us make me nervous for some reason.
