England's Big Four, Two Games, One Point?

This is a unique round in the Premiership with Liverpool hosting Manchester United and Chelsea visiting Arsenal on Sunday. Yes, the top four cracking heads on the same weekend.

Arsenal leads the way with 37 points, United a point back, Chelsea third at 34 and Liverpool fourth with 30 and a game in hand. The best results from Sunday would be victories for Liverpool and Chelsea which would leave Chelsea and Arsenal tied at the top, United a point back and Liverpool four back with a game in hand. Presuming it's a victory, the Reds would be one point back as well. Four teams separated by a point. Yes.

Also, you could get a Chelsea win and a Liverpool-United draw leaving three at the top tied with 37 points.

Unfortunately, my scenarios are a longshot. United just might be the best team in Europe and rested most of its Starting Eleven on Wednesday in the Champions League. Arsenal has been a quality team all season long, despite a rough patch of late, the Gunners are home and are getting healthier with Cesc Fabregas, Mathieu Flamini and Aleksandr Hleb in training this week and expected to play.
