Man Utd vs Sunderland: A blow by Swansea last week should make Van Gaal realize that his team is very unbalanced, the defense really need a kick in the ass. This Red Devils team is not one which the fans are proud of as they prod and labored in most games. Jamie Carragher is already predicting a Pools win when they meet later in the month at Anfield.
2-0 : It is a norm nowadays to see a Man Utd win as 'labored, uninspiring, etc' and this home win is another in the long list. Rooney showed his value as a striker by scoring the brace when Van Persie was injured. How long will Van Gaal keep this type of labored wins going?
Liverpool vs Man City: Both teams have European exertions. Brendan Rogers already made an excuse, in case the Reds lose, about Man City having more time to recover. The Blues may be suffering over their 2-1 loss to Barcelona in the Champions League.
2-1 : The Reds is in top form, surging up towards a CL place. It is a repeat of last year's result when Liverpool was chasing the title. This loss is significant for the Citizens as they are now 5 points behind Chelsea with one game more played. Arsenal is only 2 points behind, pressure is on for Pelligrini.
Arsenal vs Everton: The Gunners must still be in a great shock after being thrashed 3-1 at home by Monaco in the CL, even though they were in top form domestically. Can they regain their composure?
2-0: the Gunners recovered from their mid week debacle with the solid win to go third in the table.
Chelsea vs Spurs : Capital One Cup final At Wembley
Spurs came into this match in a bad form as they crashed out of the Europa League, losing 0-2 to Fiorentina. Roberto Soldado was the chief culprit in missing the scoring chances.....will Pochettino start with Harry Kane instead?
Chelsea is in a better shape as they drew 1-1 with PSG in the CL last week, though they are showing
signs of fatigue.
2-0 : first trophy for Mourinho in his second time in charge of Chelsea. Spurs could not repeat their recent 5-3 thrashing in the final.... The Blues were generally in control throughout the match. No wonder Jose Mourinho was celebrating like a little kid after the final. His team is now 5 points ahead of Man City with a game in hand.
