Tottenham are away at Manchester City in the Saturday evening kick off and you have to wonder about this one. Tottenham are in better form that Pep Guardiola's side who were soundly beaten by Everton last weekend. However, this is at City, they are certain to have received a rocket from Pep this week and I would expect a much better performance from them. I do still believe that the best we could possibly hope for would be a draw.
Manchester United face Stoke away on Saturday afternoon and that is a potential banana skin for Jose Mourinho and his United side. They simply cannot afford to drop any more points but Mark Hughes' side at home are normally very good. This will not be easy for United.
Sunday afternoon ahead of our game, Arsenal take on Burnley at home and you would have to state on paper this would be a home banker. The best we can hope for would be a draw but that's asking alot at the Emirates.
Chelsea should beat Hull this Sunday at Stamford Bridge if you compare both sides form over recent weeks but in saying that, as we witnessed against West Brom at the Bridge, this could turn out to be a difficult encounter. I've asked the question whether or not Diego Costa should start in this one so make sure you check out that post.
Whoever starts for Chelsea needs to be at the same level as we were last weekend against Leicester. We cannot afford any slip ups and just need to focus on our game. We have the players to get the job done and let's hope that we do before two big games coming up against Liverpool and Arsenal.
Let's hope somewhere in the games involving our rivals there are more points dropped!
