Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte

Rangers midfielder Andy Halliday has revealed that although he supports Chelsea in the Premier League, he hates watching the Blues and instead prefers seeing Liverpool play.

YouTube opens up a new world of 1.3 billion users and a shot at the company's £8 billion in annual revenue.

With Arsenal and Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final and Manchester United hosting Chelsea on Sunday, the majority of Saturday's fixtures involve the relegation scrap.

There is a significant gap between runaway leaders Man City and the chasing pack, but also a huge gap between Arsenal in sixth and those from seventh downward.

With Swansea keen to keep the momentum going, they would likely settle for a point at the Amex, especially with some winnable games to come at the Liberty Stadium in the following weeks. The mood has not been helped by a disastrous trip to Barcelona where four senior players - Jonny Evans, Gareth Barry, Jake Livermore and Boaz Myhill - were alleged to have been involved in the theft of a taxi.

So how do Chelsea look, when compared to the so-called Royalty of Europe, over the last 19 seasons in league play?

In 2010, Spurs finished in European places for the first time - breaking up the monopoly that Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal had on the top four for the years preceding.

This weekend looks, on paper, to be a belter and should be a fascinating watch, particularly Sunday which is the true definition of Super Sunday!

Manchester City - who are digital innovators - lead the Premier League with a 1.1 million following.

United greats already showcased are David Beckham, Eric Cantona, Wayne Rooney, Paul Scholes and Robin van Persie.

Once the end of February rolls around, we slowly start to get the odd fixture that feels meaningless.

Liverpool scored five against a poor Porto side and they also have chronic inconsistencies at the back.

The last five finals have been contested by these teams, except for Borussia Dortmund in 2013. The traditional historical powerhouses, Liverpool and Manchester United stopped qualifying with regularity.

Then comes Manchester United against Chelsea, Jose Mourinho taking on Antonio Conte. This means things are a bit off like total points and wins, etc. which is why I didn't focus on them. A good mixed day beckons us with a lots of good, bad and not-so-beautiful rumours in the ocean today.

Everything points towards a City win, given their incredible dominance this season, but their shock FA Cup exit at the hands of Wigan Athletic will have stung. Conceding that goal gave Barcelona the edge as it's almost guaranteed they will find the net at home in the return leg. Unless you are a Chelsea supporter, obviously.
