Tottenham v Chelsea

Tottenham

Date: Sunday 22nd December. Time: 4:30pm. How to watch: Sky Sports activities Premier League/Foremost Occasion

David Jones says: This recreation’s already bought an edge anyway, after which you could have the Jose v Frank Lampard issue – grasp towards apprentice.

Jose is the person that turned Frank Lampard right into a winner at Chelsea, but it surely shocked me within the first recreation he did on Sky, how essential he was about a few of Frank’s choices towards Manchester United.

The criticism was that he was not going to get too far counting on younger gamers and that he had to be extra pragmatic in his method.

It’s virtually a free hit for Lampard this season as a result of there’s a switch ban and he’s anticipated to carry by means of younger gamers so that you by no means fairly know what you’re going to get, however he’s had an unimaginable begin.

If he’s in a position to go and win at Spurs, that would definitely present Jose! A take a look at of The Humble One.

Having stated that, Jose would love nothing greater than to go up towards one in every of his proteges and put him in his place. That’s going to be fascinating.


Arsenal v Chelsea

David Jones says: It’s one of many large prime six rivalries, an enormous London derby.

Arsenal desperately want to cease delivery so many targets and I believe that’s what all of us thought Wenger’s successor could be tasked to do.

The most important criticism of his reign, significantly away from house, is that they’d a mushy centre.

All of us assumed {that a} new coach, a super-coach as we have been informed Unai Emery was, that’s what he would have the ability to deal with – if something it’s got loads worse.

They’re delivery as many photographs on their purpose per recreation because the likes of Aston Villa and Norwich, groups who’ve simply come into this league, which is unfathomable.

Emery wants to in a short time discover a system that works for them – it’ll be very fascinating to see when that recreation comes round whether or not he’s nonetheless at the Emirates.


Liverpool v Wolves

David Jones says: The quantity of video games Liverpool may have performed in December going into this recreation, they’re taking up a Wolves facet who’ve already gained at Manchester Metropolis this yr they usually’re bettering by the week, I believe that’s an actual take a look at for Liverpool.

We may get right into a scenario by the top of December the place a cushty lead isn’t that any extra.

With so many video games thick and quick over the Christmas interval, something can occur.

They’ve bought the Membership World Cup to deal with, they’re nonetheless battling on within the Carabao Cup.

The factor with Liverpool is that they’re scoring so many late targets and not likely battering any groups.

They’re profitable video games, typically comfortably, however by no means by greater than the odd purpose that means there’s not an enormous margin for error.

It will likely be fascinating to see in the event that they do get one or two key accidents, perhaps to the entrance three, Virgil van Dijk or the full-backs, how they react to that.
