Has it stopped being funny that Chelsea are still within four dropped points of the relegation places? No, no it has not, and it could get a lot worse for them this Sunday when they head to Arsenal, despite only losing away to them three times in the last 13 seasons. In the early kick off, Swansea’s wings are failing as they nosedive towards the Championship, and they head to Goodison Park, where Everton haven’t managed to win a game since November.
Arsenal vs Chelsea
Arsenal struggle against their London rivals. That’s more obvious than David Haye’s inevitable plea for relevance and another world title shot. But there’s the question about whether Arsenal have ever looked as good as they do coming into this stage of the season. It’s almost February, and it’s around the Champions League round of 16 where their annual collapse in the league starts.

Everton vs Swansea
Just one away win all season for Swansea and that came against Aston Villa and that doesn’t really count because even my Sunday League football team could give Villa a decent game at this rate. They’ve scored 20 goals in the 22 league games so far and did manage to beat an out of sorts Watford side last week for just their second win in the last thirteen matches.
Andrew Boulton pointed out how crazy Everton have been this season and with a cup semi final looming on Wednesday night, Roberto Martinez could make a few switches to his side on Sunday. But Wigan fans will remember that the Spaniard isn’t much of a tinkerer, so expect the same men to do this business. Romelu Lukaku first goalscorer, but take a look at Everton to win big at as well.
