Arsenal vs. Liverpool
Alexis Sanchez is one of the shining lights so far this season for Arsenal and his consistency in front of
goal has seen him ranked amongst the Premier League's leading scorers.

Sanchez heads into the game at Anfield third in the scoring charts with nine goals behind Sergio Aguero
and Diego Costa and there is little to suggest he will not add to his tally against Liverpool.

With Olivier Giroud and Danny Welbeck also a threat up front, Arsenal appear to be back on course after
a recent wobble - but the converse seems true about Liverpool.

Having to do without the likes of Luis Suarez this season will cause further envious glances from
Liverpool fans towards the Arsenal line-up which boasts, in Sanchez, a player allowed to leave Barcelona
to make room for former Liverpool striker Suarez.

The problems of managers Brendan Rodgers and Arsene Wenger are all relative. Rodgers could be said to have the bigger crisis on his hands as his Liverpool side have slumped to 11th in the table compared to last season when they challenged for the Premier League title all the way to the
end of the season.

Having crashed out of the Champions League there are some even predicting a P45 for Rodgers along
with his Christmas card from John W Henry.

Wenger, by comparison, has guided his side to the last 16 of the Champions League even if defeat at
Stoke angered some of the Gunners faithful.

Successive wins over Galatasaray and Newcastle have silenced the dissenting voices for the time being.

Stoke v Chelsea
Diego Costa has found the target with uncanny regularity this season to help propel Chelsea to the top
of the Premier League table and justify their favourites' tag.

Jose Mourinho's side have been the stand-out team so far this season and until a recent blip were
without realistic challengers.

The 12 goals that Costa has scored in the Premier League since his move from Atletico Madrid over the
summer have more than justified the £32million Mourinho paid for the Brazilian-born Spanish

Aside from a goal for Spain in the 4-0 European Championships qualifier away to Luxembourg, all of
Costa's goal have come in the Premier League.

After an impressive seven in his first four games the goals had dried up a little but scoring in the 2-0
home win over Hull last time out showed he has found his range once more.

Mark Hughes' Stoke side might be better known for playing more attractive football than the team
previously managed by Tony Pulis but they still know the importance of stopping their opponents from

No team relishes a trip to the Britannia Stadium as Arsenal can confirm after a recent 3-2 defeat there
saw fans round on manager Arsene Wenger.

Hughes will be keen to add to his side's five Premier League wins and four draws from 16 games going
into the Chelsea fixture.

Stopping Costa from finding the target is one sure way of increasing their chances of getting something
from the game.
