THERE are four games in the EPL on Sunday, starting with Chelsea at struggling Bolton (1.30pm, Sky Sports 1).

Owen Coyle's men flourished last season mainly thanks to on-loan Blues star Daniel Sturridge's goals.

He returned to Stamford Bridge in the summer and has never looked back while Bolton are missing him badly.

The Reebok has happy memories for Chelsea who won the title there in 2005 and I reckon they'll be smiling again after 90 minutes.

They are a best 4-7 with Stan James while Bolton are a biggest 11-2 with boylesports.

Frank Lampard returned to scoring form with a goal in Valencia in midweek and should keep his place. He is 8-1 at Ladbrokes to score first and 5-2 at boylesports at any time.

And that man Sturridge is 11-2 with Ladbrokes to net the opener and 6-4 to just to score.

The big game is undoubtedly Spurs v Arsenal (4pm, Sky Sports 1) and for the first time in ages the White Hart Lane men are favourites.

And you can see why. The Gunners, even in their dominant years, won just two of their last 12 at the Lane although eight were draws.

Spurs look better placed of the two London sides just now and it could take some time for Arsene Wenger to rebuild after the crushing loss of Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri.

I'm on Spurs at a best 6-5 with Betfred among others while Arsenal are 9-4 at Paddy Power.

The presence of Manny Adebayor adds another dimension to the game and it would be typical if the one-time Gunners hero turned villain scored.

Adebayor is a best 5-1 with bet365 to score first and 6-4 at Ladbrokes to net at any time. He is 28-1 with Paddy Power to be sent off and 10-1 not to shake hands with Arsenal skipper Robin van Persie before kick-off.

There should be goals in a game that's produced it's fair share in the past. Over 2.5 pays 6-5 at Paddy Power, over 3.5 is 7-4 at Ladbrokes and both teams to score is 8-13 at bet365.

Dutchman van Persie is Arsenal's most likely scorer, especially away from home, and is 15-2 at Stan James to hit the opener.

In the two other games Fulham entertain QPR and Swansea meet Stoke.

Fulham ended a poor run by beating Odense in the Europa League in midweek and with Andrew Johnson back among the goals I can see them notching another win.

QPR have performed well away from home with wins at Everton and Wolves so can't be written off but I'll be on Fulham at 10-11 with Betfred. Johnson is 7-1 (various) to score first.

Stoke screwed by being thumped at Sunderland last time they returned from Europa League duty but that was an away trip to the Ukraine. They were at home on Thursday so no travelling was involved and I reckon they'll bag a draw at Swansea.
