http://google.com -> "Settings" in the lower right hand corner of the window/tab -> [pop-up-Menu] Search Settings -> Languages -> (*) English
The "google.com" finds out which country you are in using the URL. For example when I was using a Japanese VPN my Google redirected to "google.co.jp". However without a VPN (in the UK) it would redirect me to google.co.uk. So in your case in the Google Chrome preferences set the new tab to open up "google.co.uk" instead of .com.
