Game of the week - Chelsea v Liverpool
We don't always get a good game from these two but you never know; there is plenty of quality so hopefully we'll see a decent spectacle. Rafa Benitez has got a lot of sorting out to do after a really poor performance against Fiorentina in midweek. Given the current status of Serie A, I think it will have shaken them to get outclassed by an Italian side. It is not ideal scheduling for them to travel to Stamford Bridge immediately afterwards. Amazingly, there is talk of pressure on Chelsea, who have won all but one of their games this season. They have an experienced side and a winning culture there, and I think they will respond to last week's defeat at Wigan with three points.
Upset of the week - Bolton v Tottenham
The fixture list hasn't thrown up too many potential upsets this week - Sunderland head to Old Trafford in free-scoring form, but I can't see them beating Manchester United. Bolton should certainly pose Tottenham a few questions, and test their physical and mental credentials. Harry Redknapp's side have toughened up a little, and they will have to win the small battles, deal the whacks in the face and the long balls. They need to stay composed and not get frustrated if it isn't an attractive game. Bolton have struggled so far this season and need a win; they won't make life easy for Spurs.
Player to watch - Dimitar Berbatov
The Bulgarian has admitted this week he has not been a success for Manchester United - although the rest of us already knew that. I am a big fan of his but he has not done it at all since joining from Spurs. He has blamed the pressure of moving to a bigger club, but you would have hoped that being around quality players would bring him on. He lost his place in the team to Michael Owen before the Englishman's injury, so now he has got another chance he must dig in and sacrifice all the tricks and flicks in favour of simple, effective football. He has to get back to basics.
Not under pressure - Paul Hart
People think the Portsmouth manager is under pressure, but I cannot agree. Expectations are rock bottom at Fratton Park. He has had so many tools taken off him, if he were building a wall he would be stacking the bricks with his feet and using toothpaste for mortar. Pompey have two great coaches in Hart and Brian Kidd, who are great at bringing though young players, but there are no longer any good experienced players for them to knit in with. They have made a lot of changes but have not brought in enough quality. Acquisitions like Danny Webber and Tommy Smith suggest they are just regrouping for life in the Championship. It is chaos down there at the moment, and they just need to focus on getting their finances straight and letting Hart do his job.
