    English Premier Leaugue : Match Previews : week 14

    Saturday 22nd November

    Chelsea (1st) v Newcastle United (17th)

    CET : 15:00
    Ground: Stamford Bridge

    Last 6 results :
    Chelsea
    West Brom - Chelsea 0 - 3
    Chelsea - Burnley 1 - 1
    Blackburn - Chelsea 0 - 2
    Roma - Chelsea 3 - 1
    Chelsea - Sunderland 5 - 0

    Newcastle - Aston Villa 2 - 0

    Sunderland - Newcastle 2 - 1
    Newcastle - Man City 2 - 2

    Chelsea take on Newcastle United at Stamford Bridge knowing they will guarantee top spot if they notch a fifth successive Barclays Premier League victory.
    Only goal difference is keeping the Magpies out of the relegation zone. They have not won on the road this season and have not beaten Chelsea in London since Andy Thomas got a brace and Peter Beardsley the other in a 1-3 victory on 22nd November 1986.
    Chelsea have won their last six consecutive home league matches against Newcastle, conceding just one goal. They have kept clean sheets in nine of the 15 Premier League meetings at the Bridge.

    Last season a depleted Chelsea side won this fixture 2-1 thanks to goals from Michael Essien and Salomon Kalou. A Wayne Bridge own-goal had brought Newcastle back into the match before Kalou's late strike.

    chelsea team news
    Chelsea manager Luiz Felipe Scolari could be without a host of star players for the match with Newcastle at Stamford Bridge.

    Frank Lampard, who withdrew from the England squad to face Germany because of a rib injury, remains a doubt, while Didier Drogba is definitely out as he starts a three-match ban.

    Ashley Cole (foot), Alex (thigh), and Juliano Belletti (ankle) are also doubtful, Ricardo Carvalho is almost certain to miss out with a knee injury and Michael Essien and Franco Di Santo are definitely out.

    However, Scolari hopes to have Joe Cole (hamstring) and goalkeeper Petr Cech (calf) back in the squad for the match against the Magpies.

    newcastle team news
    Newcastle interim manager Joe Kinnear faces a defensive headache.

    Steven Taylor (abdominal muscle) is still out, leaving Kinnear to chose two central defenders from Fabricio Coloccini, Sebastien Bassong and Claudio Cacapa.

    Danny Guthrie is likely to deputise for Joey Barton (knee) in central midfield. Striker Mark Viduka (Achilles) is back in training but is not yet ready to return, while Xisco (hamstring), Gonzalez (Achilles) and Alan Smith (foot) are still out.

    squads
    Chelsea: Cech, Cudicini, Bosingwa, Terry, Ivanovic, Bridge, Ballack, Lampard, A Cole, Alex, Belletti, Obi, Deco, Ferreira, Kalou, Malouda, Anelka, J Cole, Stoch, Mineiro.

    Newcastle: Given, Harper, Beye, Enrique, N'Zogbia, Bassong, Coloccini, Cacapa, Edgar, Butt, Guthrie, Duff, Gutierrez, Geremi, Ameobi, Owen, Martins, Carroll.

    Liverpool (2nd) v Fulham (10th)

    CET : 15:00
    Ground: Stamford Bridge

    Last 6 results :

    Liverpool
    Bolton - Liverpool 0 - 2
    Tottenham - Liverpool 4 - 2
    Liverpool - West Brom 3 - 0
    Liverpool - Atletico Madrid 1 - 1
    Tottenham - Liverpool 2 - 1

    Fulham - Newcastle 2 - 1
    Everton - Fulham 1 - 0
    Fulham - Wigan 2 - 0
    Portsmouth - Fulham 1 - 1
    Fulham - Sunderland 0 - 0

    Both Liverpool and Fulham are going for a third successive Barclays Premier League victory but the Cottagers have never won in 27 visits to Anfield in any competition, a record stretching back to 1934.

    The Merseysiders are unbeaten in their last 17 home matches while Roy Hodgson's men have taken just one point on their travels.

    Liverpool, who will go top if they get a better result than Chelsea, are at their most dangerous in the last 15 minutes of top-flight matches this term, when nine of their 21 goals have been scored; Fulham are also at their most susceptible then, as five of 11 goals have been shipped in the closing quarter-hour.

    The Reds have scored 14 goals as they won their last four home Premier League meetings with Fulham who suffered their club record defeat at anfield when they lost 10-0 in a League Cup tie 22 years ago.

    Last season Fernando Torres scored a fine individual goal as the Reds ran out 2-0 winners. Steven Gerrard also scored a penalty in the match.

    Fulham were still under the stewardship of Lawrie Sanchez when the sides met at Anfield in November of last year. Now Roy Hodgson has made the job his own, with solid home form taking Fulham to 10th place in the Barclays Premier League.

    liverpool team news

    Steven Gerrard is out of the match after the muscle tear which ruled him out of England's win in Germany on Wednesday.

    Gerrard has been in light training but Liverpool assess his chances of being fit for next week's Champions League game with Marseille as only 50-50.

    Full-back Alvaro Arbeloa returns after a one-match ban and Robbie Keane has recovered from the shoulder injury which kept him out for the Republic of Ireland.

    fulham team news
    Fulham have included Dickson Etuhu in their squad.

    It is the first time the midfielder has been available for first-team duty since his August transfer from Sunderland after recovering from a knee injury.

    Manager Roy Hodgson has no other injury concerns other than long-term absentee Diomansy Kamara (knee).

    squads
    Liverpool: Reina, Arbeloa, Carragher, Agger, Aurelio, Mascherano, Alonso, Lucas, Babel, Benayoun, Kuyt, Torres, Keane, Riera, Cavalieri, Hyypia, Plessis, Dossena.

    Fulham: Schwarzer, Pantsil, Hughes, Hangeland, Konchesky, Davies, Bullard, Murphy, Gera, Zamora, Johnson, Zuberbuhler, Nevland, Gray, Dempsey, Andreasen, Etuhu, Kallio, Baird, Seol, Stoor.

    Manchester City (12th) v Arsenal (4th)

    CET : 15:00
    Ground: The City of Manchester Stadium

    Last 6 results :

    Manchester City
    Hull - Man City 2 - 2
    Man City - Tottenham 1 - 2
    Man City - FC Twente 3 - 2
    Bolton - Man City 2 - 0

    Arsenal - Man Utd 2 - 1
    Arsenal - Fenerbahce 0 - 0
    Stoke - Arsenal 2 - 1
    Arsenal - Tottenham 4 - 4

    Arsenal have the chance to leapfrog third-placed Manchester United who do not play until the evening when Sir Alex Ferguson's men face Aston Villa who won 0-2 at the Emriates last time out

    That was the Gunners' biggest defeat of the season so far but they have not suffered back-to-back defeats in 58 Premier League outings, since tumbling to three in a row against Everton (a), Liverpool (a) and West Ham (h), between 18th March and 7th April 2007.

    City have never scored more than one goal in any of their 22 Premier League matches against Arsenal and will be chasing only their second Premier League victory over Arsenal.

    The Gunners have won eight and lost one of their last nine top-flight matches at City who have lost more matches (18) and dropped more points (60) to Arsenal than to any other club in the Premier League.

    City team news
    Captain Richard Dunne, midfielder Gelson Fernandes and striker Danny Sturridge could all return to Manchester City's squad.

    Dunne and Fernandes have both completed one-match bans for their red cards against Tottenham a fortnight ago, while Sturridge has returned to training following three weeks out with an ankle injury.

    However, Fernandes faces a late fitness check after coming off during Switzerland's midweek friendly win over Finland, while manager Mark Hughes could also add another goalkeeper to his squad as cover for the injured Joe Hart if he can make a suitable loan signing.

    Arsenal team news
    Arsenal forward Robin van Persie returns from suspension for the trip to Manchester City but midfielder Cesc Fabregas serves a one-match ban.

    Kolo Toure (calf) is doubtful, while Theo Walcott (shoulder) and Emmanuel Eboue (knee) are on the sidelines along with long-term absentees Tomas Rosicky (knee) and Eduardo (ankle).

    Emmanuel Adebayor only returned from his ankle complaint last week so will require assessment before a decision is made.

    squads
    Manchester City: Schmeichel, Zabaleta, Richards, Dunne, Garrido, Wright-Phillips, Kompany, Ireland, Mwaruwari, Robinho, Vassell, Fernandes, Ben-Haim, Jo, Onuoha, Ball, Hamann, Elano, Sturridge, Evans.

    Arsenal: Almunia, Diaby, Sagna, Nasri, Gallas, Denilson, Silvestre, Clichy, Bendtner, Vela, Ramsey, Song, Djourou, Fabianski, Adebayor, van Persie, Wilshere, Simpson.

    Villa, who have lost more matches (23), dropped more points (83) and conceded more goals (54) to Manchester United than to any other club in the Barclays Premier League, have failed to beat the Red Devils in 22 league and cup matches, since a 3-0 triumph in the third round of the Worthington League Cup on 13th October 1999.

    United have gained 11 successive victories at Villa Park (six Premier League trips, FA Cup ties in 2002, 2004 and last season, and FA Cup semi-finals against Arsenal in 2004, and Watford in 2007).

    United have not dropped a point at Villa Park since a 1-1 draw on 26 October 2002, and have not lost a league match there since Villa opened the season with a 3-1 victory on 19th August 1995 in which Ian Taylor, Mark Draper and Dwight Yorke (penalty) scored. United have won nine and drawn three of the subsequent league visits to the venue.

    After four successive defeats in league and cup, Sunderland bounced back to form with last Saturday's 1-2 win at Blackburn Rovers.

    They have not managed back-to-back league victories this season but West Ham were one of their victims when it was last achieved eight months ago.

    Gianfranco Zola has overseen a seven-match winless streak which has brought just two points.

    Sunderland have scored four of their 12 goals in the last 15 minutes while the Hammers with one at their most vulnerable in the closing quarter-hour (eight of the Hammers' 22 goals have been shipped then).

    Sunderland manager Roy Keane is keeping his fingers crossed that Trinidad and Tobago trio Kenwyne Jones, Dwight Yorke and Carlos Edwards return unscathed from international duty.

    The three played in their country's 3-0 World Cup victory over Cuba in midweek and will return to training on Saturday ahead of Sunday's Barclays Premier League match with West Ham.

    Edwards is in line for his first Black Cats appearance in two months after being recalled from his loan spell at Wolves this week.

    West Ham's Diego Tristan faces a late fitness test. The striker returned to full training this week following a knock but coach Gianfranco Zola confirmed he will wait until Saturday to decide whether to include the Spaniard, who has yet to make an appearance for the Hammers, in the squad.

    Herita Ilunga has recovered from an ankle injury, but Mark Noble (calf) and Keiron Dyer are still out - although the latter has resumed training.

    Jonathan Spector is in contention for a place in the squad following hip surgery in August, but Dean Ashton and Danny Gabbidon remain in the treatment room.

    squads
    Sunderland: Fulop, Colgan, Bardsley, Chimbonda, Ferdinand, Nosworthy, Collins, Malbranque, Whitehead, Tainio, Leadbitter, Miller, Yorke, Richardson, Reid, Diouf, Cisse, Jones, Murphy, Healy, Edwards.

    West Ham: Green, Neill, Collins, Upson, Ilunga, Faubert, Parker, Collison, Mullins, Boa Morte, Bowyer, Bellamy, Sears, Etherington, Walker, Lastuvka, Lopez, Tomkins, Di Michele, Davenport, Behrami, Cole, Reid, Tristan, Spector.
