Arsenal v Chelsea
If Arsenal’s unstoppable home form is anything to go by this will be a tough test for the champions. Despite Chelsea’s abysmal start to this campaign, there has been a subtle improvement in performances since Guus Hiddink took temporray charge as manager. After being almost non-existent in games big-name players like Diego Costa and Oscar have started to assert themselves more and on their day can ring the alarm bells for any defence. If they especially feel up for the challenge, against an Arsene Wenger side looking in great shape to win the league, there is every chance the Blues’ could take something back across London. For me though with the strength and depth Arsenal have at the moment, and the way Chelsea have underperformed this season it is hard to see anything other than a home win.
Arsenal 2-0 Chelsea
Everton v Swansea
For the neutral any game involving Everton should be exciting, their football this season has been wonderful to watch. Given the amount of goals they score and concede most matches are full of drama. So often this season points have been lost thanks to last-minute goals, the case last week away at Chelsea. Swansea are in a lot of trouble themselves knowing relegation is still a possibility, but the victory over Watford on Monday night should give everyone at the club a much needed lift. No game against Everton is going to be plain sailing, however because of the home side’s recent struggles the Swans will fancy their chances of at least picking up a point so I am going for a score draw.
Everton 1-1 Swansea
