After Arsenal and Manchester City’s home victories on Saturday, the pressure is on Chelsea to maintain their pace in the title race with a victory against Manchester United at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea’s unbeaten 2013-14 home record and their recent streak of success against the Red Devils will both be on the line as a desperate Man United squad comes to town. David Moyes’ squad will be without both Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney, putting the pressure on Danny Welbeck to continue his good run of form against a tough Blues defense that has only allowed eight goals at the Bridge this season.
The day’s action from the EPL will begin in Swansea, where Michael Laudrup’s squad welcomes a Tottenham Hotspur team that can pull level with Liverpool in the race for fourth place with a road victory. While Spurs have won four of their last five league matches since their 5-0 loss to Liverpool, Swansea are getting dangerously close to the drop zone in the midst of a seven-match winless skid.
Elsewhere, PSV Eindhoven and Ajax will meet in a huge Eredivisie clash, while Atletico Madrid look to keep their unbeaten home record intact against a streaking Sevilla squad in Spain. In Italy, Hellas Verona will try to stay in the race for a European spot when they visit AC Milan in Clarence Seedorf’s managerial debut.
