IF it's Super Sunday in the Ryder Cup then it's pretty special in the EPL too.

There are three cracking looking encounters with Chelsea v Arsenal of course the most anticipated.

However, Man City v Newcastle and Liverpool v Blackpool don't look that shabby either and both are likely to produce goals.

In fact William Hill are asking which of three will be the highest scoring and go Anfield 6-5, Stamford Bridge 2-1 and Eastlands 2-1. I'll go for Anfield but more of that match later.

We've got to start at the Bridge where Chelsea have a chance to put some daylight between themselves and the chasing pack by beating Arsenal.

Man United's draw at Sunderland yesterday gives the Blues an opportunity to move five points clear and they should take it.

Didier Drogba could be the man to back as first scorer as he has an outstanding record against the Gunners with 12 goals in his last 10 appearances against them.

He netted a double in both league fixtures last season and is 7-2 with bodog to score first,  10-11 with the firm to net at any time and 5-1 at William Hill to score two or more.

Drogba's chances of hitting the target will be improved by Nicolas Anelka insisting he'll give up the penalty duties to the comeback Ivory Coast striker.

Arsenal will be without captain Cesc Fabregas with a hamstring injury along Manuel Almunia (elbow), Kieran Gibbs (calf ), Thomas Vermaelen (Achilles), Nicklas Bendtner (groin), Aaron Ramsey (leg), Theo Walcott (ankle) and Robin van Persie (ankle).

It's a lot to ask of a team minus that amount of talent to go to the Bridge and win. Chelsea look the stronger outfit and should be backed at a biggest 4-5 with William Hill. Arsenal are 9-2 at Blue Square and 888sport.

Man City were unlucky not to beat Juventus in the Europa League on Thursday and face another interesting clash at home to Newcastle.

The Magpies headed into the weekend sitting in 10th place but know they missed chances to be further up the table after home defeats against Blackpool and Stoke.

Chris Hughton's men did win their last away game at Everton but a visit to cash-rich City will be a much tougher task and this should be another home at 1-2 with William Hill. Newcastle are a biggest at bet365 among others.

I was hugely impressed by Adam Johnson against Juve. He scored a cracking goal and made plenty of the running so consider him at 7-1 with bodog to score first if he maintains that form. Carlos Tevez is just 3-1 while Newcastle dangerman Andy Carroll is 8-1.

Liverpool haven't inspired much confidence of late but surely will be too good at home to Blackpool.

The Tangerines have made a decent start to life in the EPL but their combined defeats to Chelsea and Arsenal have been 10-0 and they could face another heavy loss at Anfield.

Boss Ian Holloway's big problem is his team need to defend in numbers but are not that good at it. He attacked Arsenal and lost 6-0.

Blackpool then defended at Chelsea but trailed 4-0 at half-time. They were more positive after the interval and looked good going forward as they didn't concede more goals.

So Holloway has to try to find a balance but no matter what he does it's hard to imagine a Liverpool side with the likes of Steven Gerrard and Fernando Torres in their ranks slipping up.

Torres is 5-2 with bodog to bag the opener with Gerrard 15-4.

William Hill offer 9-4 on Liverpool scoring first today ahead of 11-4 Man City and Chelsea, 6-1 Arsenal, 7-1 Blackpool and Newcastle.


Drogba to score first

(7-2, bodog)
