With weather this week that has dropped below freezing, we can rely on our cockles being warmed by a scorching hot programme of weekend English Premier League football.
This week saw all four English representatives qualify for the knockout round of Champions League fixtures, with Manchester United and Chelsea topping their respective groups.
