TOP THREE SPOT BECKONS
We should be in for a treat at Stamford Bridge as both Chelsea and Man City battle it out in that knowledge that three points for either team will send them back into the top three.
I was sceptical about all the pre-season hype about it being the ‘closest Premier League ever’, but am steadily being won over.
Man City have definitely had the edge over Chelsea in recent years but recent overall form shows they haven’t done so well away from home (losing 5 of their last 12 away games).

Chelsea are now unbeaten in their last 13 Premier League home games – winning 11 – since a 1-0 defeat by QPR on 2 January.
After Southampton (-1) landed a nice winner for us on Saturday and Middlesbrough landed our bet on Friday we’ll try and keep the run going today with a bet on under 2.5 goals at around 11/10 on Star Sports in what should prove a tight affair.
(stake between 0.5 and 10 points)
10 points win UNDER 2.5 GOALS at around 11/10
An amber weather warning has been issued across large parts of England and Wales as a hurricane-strength storm builds over the Atlantic and moves towards Britain.
Meteorologists have warned the fierce winds of up to 80mph and torrential rain could leave a trail of destruction, damaging buildings and bringing down trees and power lines.
Roads may also be hit by flash flooding, bringing rush hour traffic on Monday morning to a halt, and homes could be flooded.
Forecasters and senior fire chiefs have urged people to stay indoors if possible, and to take extra care if venturing out.
Prime Minister David Cameron said he had chaired a call with Government departments and agencies to hear about their plans to “ensure people are protected from tonight’s storm”.
