English Premier League leading scorer Luis Suarez and Liverpool’s trip to face manager Jose Mourinho and Chelsea — the Reds’ first meeting with the Blues since Suarez’s infamous bite of Branislav Ivanovic — highlights a big Sunday slate of matches in the English Premier League,
Liverpool slipped from second to fourth place after their Thursday loss at Manchester City, and Brendan Rodgers’ high-scoring squad will face its second straight road test against a fellow title contender at Stamford Bridge on Sunday. Chelsea have only dropped points at home once this season in Mourinho’s return to the EPL thanks to a balance offensive attack and the league’s second-best defense in goals allowed.
The day’s action will kick off at Goodison Park and St. James’ Park. Fifth-place Everton will try to overcome their 1-0 loss to last-place Sunderland with a victory against visiting Southampton, who ended their long winless skid on Thursday against Cardiff City. At St. James’ Park, sixth-place Newcastle look to stay hot against an Arsenal side that will be looking to reclaim first place after Manchester City’s victory yesterday.
