Roberto Di Matteo willbe hoping his team caan secure another 3 points at home today against struggling Norwich, and establish some daylight at the top of the Premiership. Terry will be back following his midweek rest, while Torres will start again although his manager believes he is in need of a rest. Juan Mata has been superb for Chelsea this season, and the home fans will be hoping for more of the same from the Spaniard.

Manchester City has stuttered this season and were played off the park midweek against a classy Dortmund. Joe Hart and his heroics is what kept them in the game. Mancini will demand 3 points this weekend at Eastlands against Sunderland, a tricky game. Sunderland are remarkably 13th in the league however are still unbeaten with 4 draws.

Manchester United, four points behind Chelsea in third place, travel to Newcastle on Sunday as Sir Alex Ferguson’s side look to bounce back after last weekend’s 3-2 home defeat against Tottenham. Newcastle and in particular Demba Ba destroyed United in January 3-0, Ba again could be the thorn in Sir Alex Ferguson’s side.
