Chelsea take on Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sky 3D this weekend.
This Sunday sees the new football seasonís first clash between Barclays Premier League title contenders as Chelsea square up to Manchester United.
With United and their neighbours Manchester City setting the pace in the Premier League so far, Chelsea supporters will be keen to see how their sideís championship credentials measure up early on.
The showdown, which kicks-off at 3.30pm and is being screened live on Sky 3D, will see the Blues new boss, Andrť Villas-Boas, take on the Red Devilsí Sir Alex Ferguson, for the first time.
Fergusonís side top the table with maximum points after four games, scoring a remarkable 18 goals and chalking up a memorable 8-2 victory over Arsenal three weeks ago, with only nouveau riche neighbours City matching their points tally at present.
In contrast, Villas-Boasís side have so far stuttered against opposition they were expected to overcome more easily, yet have still taken 10 points from their first four matches.
Despite United and Chelsea having shared the title between them over the last seven seasons, many commentators already believe that this seasonís championship will be a two-horse race between United and City. Chelsea will be keen to prove otherwise.
Sky customers can watch the showdown in 3D by subscribing to the Sky World HD package and activating the Sky 3D channel. A 3D-ready TV and 3D glasses are also required.
The match can be seen in standard-definition on Sky Sports 1 by BT Vision, Top Up TV, Sky and Virgin Media customers by subscribing to a Sky Sports package through their provider, and in high-definition (HD) on the HD version of the channel.
