I Predict A Draw 1 - 1 For Liverpool Vs Man U because of Liverpool Hot Run of Form in recent weeks.With such Excellent form i can't see them losing the derby match to Man U but history show Liverpool show string of bad results against Man U And they also draw against Arsenal And Chelsea Earlier On This Season thus a Draw is a likely result.
As For Arsenal Vs Chelsea I am going for a Narrow Chelsea 0 - 1 Away Win as Chelsea has look Stable And Organised @ The Back in the last few games and has kept several clean sheet already and with Petr Cech and Ashley Cole back in the Squad And Arsenal looking lost in attack and defence I expect Chelsea to Score An Goal and Seal the game Up With Solid Defence and clinch yet other clean sheet and important victory for the High Flying Blues.
