Arsenal's fading title hopes will be on the line on Sunday as the Gunners take on first-place Chelsea in the match of the weekend.
Arsenal is fresh off a 3-1 thumping against Manchester United, while Chelsea looks to rebound after dropping points to Hull City at mid-week
American soccer fans will be up bright and early on Saturday to see Landon Donovan, Tim Howard and Everton face Liverpool at Anfield in the latest installment of the Merseyside Derby. The Toffees will look to keep its unbeaten streak going (They have yet to lose in league play since Donovan arrived).

SBI's Top 10 Matches to Watch
1. Chelsea vs. Arsenal. Can the Gunners rebound and win at Stamford Bridge? Will John Terry have a nervous breakdown?
2. Liverpool vs. Everton. Winning at Anfield is never easy, but Tim Howard and Landon Donovan will try to pull off the Merseyside upset.
3. Tottenham vs. Aston Villa. Can anybody stop red-hot Jermaine Defoe? Brad Friedel will need to step up in this key battle for fourth place in the EPL.
4. Fiorentina vs. AS Roma. Can Roma dispose of a free-falling Fiorentina and move into sole possession of second place in Serie A?
5. Hull City vs. Manchester City. Jozy Altidore will shoot for his third quality start in a row against a tough Man City defense.
6. Rennes vs. Bordeaux. Will Carlos Bocanegra get another start? We will see if he does, and if he can hold up against the reigning Ligue 1 champions.
7. Barcelona vs. Getafe. Barcelona is still undefeated but they face a Getafe team that has given them all sorts of trouble through recent years.
8. Sao Paolo vs. Santos. Can Robinho still work his magic? He'll be able to show it against the Sao Paolo team that tried to swoop in and steal him away from Santos last month.
9. Wolfsburg vs. Bayern Munich. Wolfsburg is far from a title contender, but still boast Edin Dzeko and Grafite against second-place Bayern.
10. Atlas vs. Club America. After the recent shootings of Salvador Cabanas and Juan Carlos Silva, Club America will try to focus on this visit to Atlas.
