The seemingly unstoppable Chelsea are nine points clear of the top of the table as we head into today's matches. They could remain three matches ahead up there depending on the result of the top four six-pointer between Arsenal and Manchester City this morning. Meanwhile, Zlatan Imbrahimovic has apparently adjusted to the Premier League. The Swede now has nine goals in the Premier League this season. United are also unbeaten in eight in the League.

Caen v. Metz- Postponed

Mother Nature is conspiring against Caen and Metz playing a match. Both have now seen two matches postponed because of a French fog epidemic. The two will give it another shot today.
