Notts County (5) v Sunderland (4)
Notts recorder their first win this week-end and will now look to climb up the table, while will look to bounce back from their defeat at Arsenal. Both teams will hope that the top two teams both drop points on Thursday.
Birmingham (7) v Bristol (8)
Bottom of the table clash with the only teams without a win so far. Bristol and their new manager cannot really afford another defeat against another relegation threatened team. They need at least to get a point. Birmingham need to kick-start thier season after getting only 2 points from 4 games.
Manchester City v Liverpool P-P
You do wonder why this game is postponed as no explantion has been given. A bit curious that they played each other on Sunday.
Chelsea (1) v Arsenal (2)
The top of the table clash, Chelsea still with an 100% record against a resurgent Arsenal. LAst time round, Chelsea won the Cup game with Arsenal selecting the wrong tactic ( a 4-4-2 with a midfield diamond). You would not expect them to keep the same system this time. It should be a very interesting game and Chelsea would open a 5 points lead with a win on Thursday.
