3. ENGLAND: Chelsea aims for three straight

MOST COMMENTED

American midfielder Claudio Reyna starts his 12th season in Europe and his sixth in the English Premier league in what will be one of the most watched games of the EPL's opening weekend.

Reyna travels with Manchester City to Chelsea (Sunday, 11 am ET on Fox Soccer Channel), the team aiming for a third straight English Premier League title after a preseason of unsatisfactory results that included a 1-0 loss to the MLS All-Stars and a 2-1 Community Shield loss to Liverpool.

Only four times has a team won three straight English league titles: Huddersfield Town (1924-26), Arsenal (33-35), Liverpool (82-84) and Manchester United (99-01). Alex Ferguson, who's still at the Man U helm, is the only man who was coach for all three wins, a feat Chelsea's Jose Mourinho is keen to match.

Manchester United, aiming for its first title since 2003, hosts Fulham, which includes the American duo of Carlos Bocanegra and Brian McBride. (TV: Sunday, 8:30 am on Setanta Sports, channel 615 DirectTV).

Liverpool hasn't won the crown since 1990 and Arsenal, the third team considered to have a chance of knocking off Chelsea this season, lifted its last title in 2003.
