ShareAhead of the title decider between Manchester United and Chelsea at Old Trafford, we ask seven managers who they would back to lift the trophy. [LNB] [LNB] [LNB] [LNB]Eriksson[LNB]SVEN GORAN ERIKSSON [LNB] Leicester manager [LNB]Title? CHELSEA [LNB]A wonderful opportunity for Chelsea and one they could not have imagined when 15 points behind United two months ago. Not had as many key matches so they have to go all out for a win.[LNB][LNB] [LNB] [LNB] [LNB] [LNB]Redknapp[LNB]HARRY REDKNAPP[LNB]Tottenham manager[LNB]Title? MAN UTD[LNB]It's United's to lose and, if I was a betting man, my money would be on Sir Alex's team getting the result which keeps them very much in pole position. But it would be stupid to write off Chelsea.[LNB][LNB] [LNB] [LNB] [LNB]Venables[LNB] [LNB]TERRY VENABLES[LNB]Ex England boss[LNB]Title? MAN UTD[LNB]Chelsea are on a great run but Old Trafford gives United the advantage. I see a draw at worst for United. Sir Alex is the master, United have the players, expertise, quality and experience.[LNB][LNB] [LNB] [LNB] [LNB]Pulis[LNB]TONY PULIS[LNB]Stoke manager[LNB]Title? MAN UTD[LNB]United will put themselves on the brink of the title by winning a close-fought, competitive match. In spite of having a high regard for Chelsea's manager and players, I just can't see them doing that.[LNB][LNB] [LNB] [LNB]Moyes[LNB]DAVID MOYES[LNB]Everton manager[LNB]Title? MAN UTD[LNB]A tough call. United have figured in several big games recently and normally you'd say it could be a drain on their players, but Sir Alex exercises his options brilliantly and I'm certain they will be fresh and up for this.[LNB][LNB]Mancini[LNB]ROBERTO MANCINI[LNB]Man City manager[LNB]Title? CHELSEA[LNB]Every time you asked me, I said 'Chelsea, Chelsea', even when they were 15 points behind Manchester United. If Chelsea win at Old Trafford they will win the title. It's very difficult but I still think Chelsea.[LNB][LNB] [LNB]Hughes[LNB]MARK HUGHES[LNB]Fulham manager[LNB]Title? MAN UTD[LNB]You saw from the Schalke selection that Sir Alex's mind was split because of this huge game. Two or three weeks ago, everybody thought it was done and dusted but credit Chelsea for getting back in the mix. United legacy will serve us well for the title, says Gary NevilleRampant Rooney could make it hairy for lucky LuizHoward Webb is good news for Fergie, especially at Old TraffordManchester United's 18 titles and counting... but can they beat Chelsea?Denis Law: Sir Alex knows about winning with style but Mourinho's way is not for UnitedAll the latest Chelsea news, features and opinionAll the latest Manchester United news, features and opinion [LNB] [LNB] [LNB]  Explore more:People: Tony Pulis, Roberto Mancini, David Moyes, Mark Hughes, Sven Goran Eriksson, Harry Redknapp
