Two of the biggest names in modern English soccer take to the field once again Sunday as Manchester City visit Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is unbeaten in his last 64 home matches in the English Premier League, but his second-place Blues have a considerable challenge ahead of them when Manuel Pellgrini’s Citizens visit West London. After struggling away from home to start the season, Man City and their high-powered offense recorded back-to-back away wins against West Ham United and CSKA Moscow.
Elsewhere in the EPL, Jozy Altidore and last-place Sunderland look for their first victory of the season when rivals Newcastle United visit the Stadium of Light. The Black Cats have only recorded one point ahead of Sunday’s Tyne-Wear Derby, but new manager Gus Poyet and his club know a victory against their hated rivals could be the spark needed to turn their season around.
In France, Paris Saint-Germain and AS Monaco continue their battle for the top spot in Ligue 1 on Sunday. New league leaders PSG, fresh off a 5-0 rout of Anderlecht earlier this week, visit seventh-place Saint Etienne. But before the Parisians take the field, Monaco have a chance to put pressure on their rivals with a home win over a surprisingly down Lyon club at Stade Louis II.
