Manchester City’s away form in the league was looking a little shaky until Aguero’s brace helped them to win at West Ham. He bagged another two in the week in Moscow. Can he continue this good form at Stamford Bridge?

Given Ian Holloway’s departure from the club, Crystal Palace are going to need some strong leadership on the field when they host table topping Arsenal. Can Jedinak galvanise his troops to give the next boss some encouragement?
