England: Premier League Previews, Predictions & Spotlight

Chelsea and Arsenal meet on Saturday lunchtime in a London derby at Stamford Bridge. The home side are engulfed by off-field controversy following the FA's charges in the wake of last Sunday's foul-tempered defeat by QPR, while John Terry has also been accused of racially abusing Anton Ferdinand. Arsenal, in comparison, are in a relative state of stability after what had been a turbulent start to the season. By the time Chelsea and Arsenal kick-off, Manchester United will be approaching half-time in their match at Everton. After hammering Wolves in the Carling Cup, Manchester City will be in confident mood when they welcome Mick McCarthy's struggling side to Etihad Stadium. Liverpool also booked a place in an unusually exciting looking last eight of the Carling Cup with a rare win at Stoke and now Kenny Dalglish will hope to carry the winning feeling into a reunion with Roy Hodgson. There was a sense of inevitability about the West Brom manager's victory over his former club at The Hawthorns in April. On a rare quiet Sunday in England's top division, Tottenham host London rivals Queens Park Rangers.
