Roberto Mancini's side HAVE to beat Chelsea on Sunday to stay in title contention

After a busy week full of Champions League and Europa League matches, the Premier League takes center stage once again this weekend.

Regular readers will know that this column usually focuses on a wide range of league fixtures, but it's going to be slightly different this week.

We're going to look at five fixtures that could have huge implications at the bottom end of the Premier League, as well as Sunday's big clash between Manchester City and Chelsea at the Etihad.

Sunday afternoon's headline Premier League clash sees two teams going head-to-head in a match that neither side can afford to lose; both managers are under severe pressure to get things right.

Manchester City have to win on Sunday to have any chance of staying in the title race and Chelsea have to win to keep ahead of their rivals in the race for a Champions League place.

As usual, after running down key information about the current form of the sides involved in each clash, I'll make a prediction on the result at the end of the slide.

Let's get started!
