Manchester City vs Newcastle United Live Streaming Online

Newcastle United travel to the City of Manchester Stadium for the ultimate battle of the unbeaten, till now. Both the clubs have not lost a single match this season yet. Manchester City have only drawn one match and won all the others. The toons have drawn four matches while winning the other seven. Both the clubs have been in stupendous form, while everyone expected Manchester City to be this good, none could have guessed the form Newcastle have shown till now. But this fixture is going to be the litmus test for the toons as the tough phase is just beginning with this match. They will have to face the other Manchester club, the red one, and Chelsea to remain in the top four.

But for all the Newcastle fans this also a super exciting period as maximum points from these fixture will definitely mean that they fight for the top 4 honors this season. Alan Pardew has been excellent with his signings, the french force accumulated at Newcastle United is a force to reckon with. But one of the french player, Sylvain Marveaux will not be available for this match. Gabriel Obertan and Cheik Tiote will also have to pass their fitness tests and are not a certainty for this fixture. Good news for Newcastle is that Shola Ameobi will be in the squad along with his little brother Sammy Ameobi.

Now, Manchester City have been in some awe inspiring form. Scoring at will and defending like a rock. The fact that they have won seven of their last nine matches against Newcastle will only make them stronger for this tie. But they should not get carried away because this Newcastle side is a completely different one.

Mario Balotelli, Edin Dzeko, Sergio Aguero & David Silva are the key players for Manchester City while going forward. These players have made scoring goals look very easy.

So it looks like Roberto Mancini might just edge out Alan Pardew but one can never be sure.

Chelsea vs Liverpool Live Streaming Online

Big, bad match this. Don’t know about you guys but nowadays Chelsea & Liverpool matches gets my attention on one thing only. That is how is Fernando Torres if going to fair in this tussle. To write how much the Liverpool supporters loved him and then how he back stabbed everyone to go to Chelsea. To think what Liverpool attack would have looked like if he would have stayed at Anfield. Yes, we are still talking about the juicy partnership, that could have happened between Torres and Suarez, if the former had stayed put. Apparently the Liverpool supporters totally understand why Raul Meireles went to Chelsea. Poor Torres ain’t that lucky.

But we are all responsible bloggers here and would try to cover all the points related to this fixture rather than whining about Torres.

Right now Chelsea are in the 4th spot with 22 points and Liverpool at 6th with 19 points.

Both the teams can be said to be out of the the title race this season, even with little less than one third of the games being played till now. Chelsea lost an incredible 5 -3 match at home against Arsenal in their last Premier League fixture whereas Liverpool played a lethargic draw against Swansea City at home. So, there is a lot of catching upto to for both the clubs. They way they have played this season so far has not been any good. Chelsea & Liverpool as football clubs should be targeting the top spot rather than securing their position in the top four. Such has been the class of Manchester City.

By the looks of it, this Super Sunday fixture looks like it will evenly contested. Chelsea defence has been leaking golas throughout the season while on offence it has been very impressive with Juan Mata pulling the strings. And Liverpool have been solid at the back but haven’t managed to score that many goals. They have hit the post a lot of time, probably would be some kind of record by now.

Chelsea player to watch out for: Juan Mata

Liverpool player to watch out for: Luis Suarez

You can end this match preview by a looking at this killer video below. We would like to make it clear that Thick Accent does not support any kind of violence on the pitch but this Daniel Agger blow on Torres is too spicy to let go off.
