Chelsea v Liverpool – 4.00pm Sunday
At home Chelsea remain unbeaten so far this term even and Stamford Bridge continues to be one of the hardest grounds to go to and get a result in the country. Importantly, Chelsea and their fans know that if they are to mount a title challenge in what is an open race for league honours, they need to beat their rivals at home.
Mourinho can make a big statement by getting three points here and with the likes of Eden Hazard, Oscar and Frank Lampard on the pitch, goals are never far away. After scraping through a dull away tie, where they grabbed that important point at Arsenal, the Blues will be lining up as a different animal here. Expect two or three home goals here.
With all that said, Chelsea are hardly the masters of the clean sheet so far this season and it would be no surprise whatsoever to see Liverpool grab what I think will be a consolation goal.
The Reds have got goals away from home all year and I can see this match panning out similar to the tie Pool played out on Boxing Day when they went down 2-1 to Manchester City. Liverpool are always involved with goals with almost three quarters of their games this season having had over 2.5 goals scored. I cannot see this game going any other way with Brendan Rodgers outfit being on the wrong end of a thriller.
Leicester City v Bolton Wanderers– 3.00pm Sunday
Jamie Vardy and Dave Nugent have not been short of goals this season and I can see these two contributing to a home win for their Leicester City side. In fact I fancy a similar scoreline to the one they played out just eight months ago where the Foxes registered a 3-2 victory.
Its looks like this may well be Leicester’s year after many seasons of promise which resulted in failure and under performances. Now top of the league, consistency is what will keep them there, and a ‘must-win’ mentality needs to be formed for every home game. City will see this as a game three points need to be registered, they’re a great team to watch and i can only see their fortunes continuing with a comfortable victory.
Dougie Freedman and his side have underperformed so far this season, the Trotters currently languish in 17th place and need to get a move in if they are to have any hope of a Play Off place. On Boxing Day they beat Barnsley at Oakwell 1-0 which will give them confidence coming into the tie however Barnsley are bottom of the Championship while Leicester are sitting pretty at the top and will have far too much for Wanderers. I do see them scoring at some point though but it being very much a consolation.
Wolves v Leyton Orient– 3.00pm Sunday
We have a top of the table clash in League One as two of the sides the bookies have as favourites for promotion meet at Molyneux. Wolves have home advantage when Leyton Orient visit and are looking to stamp their authority on the promotion battle. Wolves are getting into their stride now after a sticky start to life in League One, and top scorer Leigh Griffiths has become one of the division’s leading marksmen and has already hit double figures. Wolves should have too much for the over performing Orient and I can see it being end to end game with home advantage prevailing.
Leyton Orient really have been the surprise package in League One this season having led the pack for the majority of the campaign so far. The O’s boast the best away record in the division however recent form has seen them drop points against opposition they would have beaten comfortably two months ago.
They may still be dangerous but are finding it difficult to be quite as ruthless when they need to be. Goal machines in Mooney, Cox and veteran Kevin Lisbie may well get amongst the goals but I cannot see Orient returning to East London with any type of result.
