Each week, The Independent will look ahead to the weekend's action in the Premier League with a video detailing the five key things to watch out for during the matches.

The Independent's online sports writers once again discuss all of the major match-ups and talking points set to dominate this weekend's Premier League agenda.

This week, Simon Rice and Tom Sheen look ahead to Sunday's huge clash between Manchester United and unbeaten Chelsea. It's ten years since Arsene Wenger's Invincibles and Jose Mourinho will surely want to emulate that impressive season, especially after Wenger's shoving antics a few weeks back. The Blues are yet to lose a game after eight matches.

Elsewhere, all eyes will once again be on Mario Balotelli, who has come under increasing pressure for his lack of goals for Liverpool and for swapping shirts at half-time during the mid-week defeat against Real Madrid in the Champions League.

Arsenal will be hoping their season has taken a positive turn following their last gasp equaliser and winner against Anderlecht in the week. Last weekend the Gunners only managed a draw at home against Hull, while their opponents this Saturday, Sunderland, lost 8-0 against Southampton in a humiliating display of football. Gus Poyet will be looking for a response from his players and he will need just that against Arsenal.

West Ham versus Manchester City could see a possible upset with the Hammers flying high under Sam Allardyce while City enter the game off the back of a disappointing result in Moscow where they let a 2-0 lead slip.
