It's starting to feel as though anything could happen in the run-up toward Christmas.
The Premier League's early leaders Arsenal were sucker-punched at Old Trafford in the previous round of games leaving the title race wide open and Manchester United back in the mix.
The Gunners have a chance to respond against Southampton at home in Week 12.
Mauricio Pochettino's team are no fools, however, and with their intense pressing style and punchy yet technical attack of Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana and Pablo Osvaldo, they could be the worst possible opponents for Arsene Wenger's team if Mesut Ozil and Co. are wavering.
David Moyes' team have a tricky yet winnable trip to Cardiff City to contend with as they seek to follow up on their home win.
Even though Cardiff City Stadium looks to be well on its way to becoming a fortress in the Premier League, their trip stands out as one of the two easier games for teams in the top eight at the weekend.
Chelsea have the other fairly simple assignment with an away visit to West Ham United, where Jose Mourinho will demand improvements from his entire squad after poor performances against Newcastle United and West Bromwich Albion.
The Blues lost and drew those games, respectively, although the game against the Baggies would have also likely been a defeat had Ramires not won his team a late and controversial penalty.
Elsewhere in the title race, Manchester City host Tottenham Hotspur while Everton host the first Merseyside derby of the season—and of Roberto Martinez's reign—against Liverpool.
Below is a full schedule of the fixtures in Week 12 along with live stream information and predictions for each Premier League showdown.

The Key Contests in Week 12
As covered above, Arsenal must overcome Southampton to prove that United's victory was all but a fluke while the results of City's clash with Spurs and Everton's derby game with Liverpool could reshape the chasing pack.
United and Chelsea will also look to make big strides into the title race proper with wins against Cardiff and West Ham, respectively.
Sunderland's visit to Stoke City looks to be one of the more intriguing contests outside of the top eight with the Potters' position above the drop zone far more precarious than many may think.
Who will be the biggest casualties in Week 12?
Gus Poyet masterminded a famous victory over Sergio Aguero and Co. in Week 11, and the Uruguayan will be hoping that he can lead the Black Cats to another unlikely point or three at the Britannia Stadium.
Meanwhile, Swansea City travel to Fulham, who are teetering on the brink of meltdown and sitting in the last of the relegation places.
Should Martin Jol's team fail to beat the visiting Swans, a result for Sunderland in Stoke could see him handed his P45.
Monday night's fixture is set to be a battle of the Midlands and the mid-table as West Brom play Aston Villa at Villa Park.
For Premier League spectators looking for an exciting game outside of the top-of-the-table clashes, the coming together of Paul Lambert's and Steve Clarke's well-assembled, hard-working and impressively skilled upstart teams.
