After failing to score against Manchester United en route to yielding to the Red Devils via a 3-0 scoreline, Liverpool are looking at getting things back on track in their campaign for 2014-15 English Premier League title by hosting Arsenal FC at Anfield on December 22, 00:00 (GMT+8). Will Brendan Rodgers include Simon Mignolet in the line-up after dropping him against Manchester United? The Gunners come in this match confident after recently dumping Newcastle United.
English Premier League leaders Chelsea FC are back to their winning ways after mounting a 2-0 victory against Hull City following their unexpected 2-1 loss to Newcastle United. Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho claims that despite the win against Hull City, his side didn't play well and there were no special performances from any players during the match. Versus Stoke City on December 23, 04:00 (GMT+8), will Chelsea have enough to pocket another win?
Inter Milan will return home at the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza when they host Lazio for the 2014-15 Serie A on December 22, 03:45 (GMT+8). Lazio lost to Inter in their last match-up, as Lazio were beaten 4-1 at Milan. But with Lazio's sterling performance this season thus far, Inter could fall at their home turf, like what happened in their last home game which was against Udinese that ended at 1-2, favouring the White Blacks.
Chelsea should be clear favourites when they face West Ham United. However, people should not forget how the Hammers hold off the Blues to a 0-0 draw at Stamford Bridge. When they meet again on the 18th game week, the results will be unpredictable, even if Chelsea are atop the standings, especially now that Sam Allardyce's side appear to be a better team than last year. Match is on December 26 at 20:45 (GMT+8).
Stoke City are looking to end their scoreless streak at Goodison Park when they visit Everton on December 26, 23:00 (GMT+8). Stoke City’s two most recent trips here were a disaster – the March 31, 2013 1-0 loss was followed by a 4-0 debacle eight months later. Will the visiting Potters finally find the back of the net or will they record another scoreless performance and add to their winless streak here in Goodison Park?
