The Next Biggest Game of the Season (and No, I'm Not Referring to the Super Bowl)

Arsenal play at Chelsea on Sunday. In their previous meeting in North London in November, Chelsea came away 3-1 winners. So, Arsenal will be looking for some revenge, albeit at a very difficult away ground. Not to put too fine a point on it, but if Arsenal lose, they are to all extents and purposes out of the title race. If they win, they are right back in the mix with Chelsea and Man U. A tie would, in essence, leave the Gunners on life support.

It's hard to see Arsenal coming back from the demoralizing home loss to Man U last weekend. While Didier Drogba and former Gunner Nikolas Anelka will pose plenty of problems for Arsenal's back four, I don't see how any combination of Arshavin, Bendtner, Walcott or Eduardo are going to overly trouble Chelsea's defense. I really don't think Arsene Wenger can expect anything better than a draw out of this game, and even that may be too much for which to hope.
