Chelsea v Arsenal is this week's big Premier League. Jose doesn't do defeats at home to his nearest rivals. Arsene Wenger has a poor record against the man from Setubal. George is going for a tense and dreary 1-1 draw. Other title contenders Manchester City should beat bottom club Fulham at home and Liverpool are heavy favourites to take all three points at Cardiff after their win at Old Trafford last weekend.

Soccer - Moyes targets European glory
Manchester United boss David Moyes believes that his side can go all the way in the Champions League this season, with the Red Devils 16/1 with bet365 to win the tournament. United came from two goals down to record a 3-2 aggregate success over Olympiacos in the last-16 and now await the quarter-final draw, where Moyes' men stand alongside Chelsea, Bayern Munich, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, Paris St-Germain and Atletico Madrid. And, although Moyes accepts that his team are not highly fancied to be crowned European champions, he thinks that United could yet surprise a few people. "We will probably go into the quarter-final tie as underdogs, but I don't see why not (we can't win the trophy)," Moyes told reporters. "This football club is capable of it. If we play to our capabilities, which we've not shown that often this season, I think we can be a match for any team."
Clichy issues silverware warning
Manchester City left-back Gael Clichy has warned his team-mates that they need to win the Premier League to make this season a success. The Citizens have already secured the Capital One Cup, but France international Clichy says that his club need to add to that trophy to be able to look back on the campaign with pride. He warned: "The Capital One Cup won't be enough. It's crunch time and we have to get the points until the end of the season. "Basically, if we win all the games we are going to be champions. It's easy to say, but not easy to do, but we're going to try really hard to make this happen." The Citizens, who are 13/10 with bet365 to be crowned champions, are currently fourth in the table, six points behind leaders Chelsea with three games in hand. City host Fulham on Saturday, having won each of their last four meetings with the Londoners.
