Only a point seperates Chelsea from going top, and after a dispoointing loss to our rivals Arsenal, I'm sure the team will be looking to bounce back. Chelsea generally don't lose back to back games and I can't see us leaving Manchester with any less than 3 points. Bolton are on form, but we will bring them back down from dreamland and into reality this weekend.
Chelsea have a 100% record, which we will be looking to maintain for the duration of the season.
Things do not look good for our title hopes in the log term, as no team has ever won the league, without beating at least 1 of their nearest rivals (position-wise) at home. I guess we'll just have to break that record. I'm tipping us to make a statement and beat Bolton 4-0
Liverpool sit above us, for now, but I think they have a much tougher game (in reality) than we do. Blackburn have not got the points they deserve under Ince and sit in a dangerous position, unlike Bolton, Blackburn desperately need the win and have a point to prove. Liverpool have done well on the road and I feel they still have too much quality be turned over by Blackburn, but I still feel they will drop points at Ewood Park, and it could be the turning point in Blackbun's season. Ince has a point to prove and his job is virtually on the line, no better way to make a statement than by beating the team that is currently top of the league. I'm going for a 1-1, but I expect all the decisions to go Liverpool's way.
As for Man U, they couldn't be playing Sunderland at a better time, with Keanes departure, Sunderland will be rattled and dejected, I'm expecting United to make a real statament of Intent, and thump Sunderland 5-1.
Arsenal play Wigan, and will be looking to take maximum points until at least New Year, they will try to build on the victory at the Bridge and start gaining momentum in the title race ahead of their crucial game against Liverpool, I also expect Arsenal to win comfortably 2-0 or 3-1.
I'm expecting none of the top 4 to lose, but Chelsea to return top (where we should be) and Arsenal and Man U to start gaining momentum in the title race. I'm tipping a bad December for Liverpool, but for them to bounce back in January.
