Soccer Saturday: Your Running Commentary

This busy Soccer Saturday will start with a bang in London as first-place Chelsea welcome third-place Arsenal to Stamford Bridge for a crucial match between English Premier League title contenders.

Chelsea have never lost a home league match under manager Jose Mourinho, and they will look to keep that streak — and more importantly, their advantage atop the league — intact as the Gunners visit West London. The Blues will try to rebound from their 1-0 loss to Aston Villa last weekend without midfielders Ramires and Willian, who each had late red cards at Villa Park. Arsenal are focused on keeping their league momentum going with a road win as they continue their late-season push without several key players.

The two other title contenders in the EPL, Liverpool and Manchester City, will be in action in the middle slate of matches. High-scoring Liverpool travel to 19th-place Cardiff City, while Manchester City battle last-place Fulham at Ethiad Stadium. Later in the day, Manchester United begin their tough stretch without Champions League savior Robin van Persie with a road fixture at 12th-place West Ham United.

Elsewhere, Bayern Munich look for their 18th consecutive victory in Bundesliga play against Mainz, who Bayern defeated to start their long winning streak. In Serie A, AS Roma take on Chievo Verona away from the Stadio Olimpico, and league-leading Cruz Azul visit Atlas to highlight Saturday night’s Liga MX action.
