LONDON - It doesn't get any closer than this.

With Manchester United and Chelsea tied on points, the Premier League title will be decided on Sunday, the final day of the season.

United only need to beat Wigan on Sunday to secure their 17th English title - and 10th in the Premier League - because of its large goal difference of 17 over Chelsea.

"As long as we're controlling our destiny, I don't think we need worry too much," Manchester United midfielder Owen Hargreaves said.

"We've got 90 minutes to play and it's a great position to be in. We've had no midweek game so we've put in some good training and hopefully we will be ready for the weekend."

The Blues host Bolton, knowing that if they win, and United lose or draw, Chelsea will become English champions for the fourth time.

"It is 90 minutes of emotion. We know we need to win and hope Man United slip," Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech said. "It will be exciting for everyone, I am sure people will have pocket radios listening to the other game."

Every Premier League match will start at the same time on Sunday.

The Premier League is one of two titles being contested by United and Chelsea - they will meet in the Champions League final in Moscow on May 21.

Another Premier League triumph would edge United closer to overtaking Liverpool as the club that has won the most English titles.

Liverpool has the record of 18.

If United winger Ryan Giggs plays on Sunday, it will be his 758th game for United, equaling Bobby Charlton's record for the most number of appearances for the club. He can also pick up his 10th Premier League winners' medal.

Chelsea won the Premier League under Jose Mourinho in 2005 and 2006, and were also victorious in 1955. Mourinho left in September and was replaced by Avram Grant, who has already surpassed his predecessor by taking Chelsea to its first European Cup final.

Fixtures: Birmingham v Blackburn, Derby v Reading, Everton v Newcastle, Middlesbrough v Man City, Portsmouth v Fulham, Sunderland v Arsenal, Tottenham v Liverpool, West Ham v Aston Villa, Wigan v Man Utd (all at 5pm). - Sapa-AP
