Sunday 1/20 Match Thread



A couple of fun match ups between 4 of the tops in PL. :

Chelsea vs. Arsenal at Stamford Bridge - 7:30am CST
Preview

&

Tottenham vs. Manchester Utd at White Hart Lane - 10:00am CST

Team news:
Chelsea vs Arsenal
Chelsea captain John Terry could make his first start since November. Terry, who came off the bench at Stoke last weekend, will have a test tomorrow on his knee injury before interim manager Rafael Benitez decides whether to start the defender. Nigeria duo John Obi Mikel and Victor Moses are at the African Nations Cup while long-term absentee Oriol Romeu (knee) remains sidelined.
Arsenal will have defender Laurent Koscielny back from a one-match suspension, but injured midfielder duo Mikel Arteta and Tomas Rosicky (both calf) remain sidelined. Forward Gervinho is away at the African Nations Cup with Ivory Coast.

Tottenham vs Man Utd
Tottenham midfielder Scott Parker could make his first Barclays Premier League start of the season against Manchester United. Brazil international Sandro has been ruled out for the rest of the season after suffering knee ligament damage in the draw at QPR last weekend and Parker, who has not started a league game since April, is likely to replace him. Striker Emmanuel Adebayor is at the African Nations Cup while defenders William Gallas (calf) and Younes Kaboul (knee) remain absent.
Manchester United defender Jonny Evans again misses out with a slight hamstring strain which saw him sit out training on Friday. Manager Sir Alex Ferguson is expected to make plenty of changes following the midweek FA Cup win over West Ham, with Robin van Persie among those set to return.

Let's see, last time we met: Gervinho scored and Nazi saluted so bad RvP blushed. Torres scored with a wrap around goal from a free kick.

This is going to be a crazy game. I hope the fans at the Bridge show up for the team. Stamford Bridge has been pathetic this year.

Yeah, I noticed that in the last two games that Torres has started against, QPR and Swansea, we haven't scored a goal...

As I'm scrolling through twitter this morning I read 3 articles about Rafa saying he's ready to rest Torres and give him an extended break. Keep scrolling and he's starting. #WhyRafa

Torres new hair do. Me gusta. That has to account for at least one goal right???

ETA: Looks like he went to the wrong barber in London. Instead of staying in the Kensington/High St. area he took the wrong tube stop and went to one in Brixton.

I didn't even recognize him. I went to the lineups and double checked for a name that I didn't know.

I'm gonna assume goggles aren't allowed out there. This weather looks miserable.
