Chink in Chelsea armour gives Premier League rivals hope
Jose Mourinho's team remain unbeaten, but his big guns misfired in Saturday's 0-0 draw at Sunderland, allowing defending champions Manchester City to trim their lead to six points with a 3-0 success at Southampton. "Every game, we go into the game looking to win it and if we show the same commitment again, I'm sure we'll have chances." Only five points currently separate fourth-place Manchester United and 11th-place Liverpool, who claimed a first victory in five league games by edging Stoke City 1-0 at Anfield on Saturday. Brendan Rodgers's side visit bottom club Leicester City on Tuesday and under-fire goalkeeper Simon Mignolet says that his team-mates will draw great encouragement from their hard-fought win over Stoke. "There is another game on Tuesday and we will look forward to that one." United produced what manager Louis van Gaal called their "Best performance of the season" on Saturday by sinking Hull City 3-0 to register a third consecutive league win for the first time in 2014. "The manager said it was our best game of the season and I think it was. It was a complete performance," said the England international. Third-bottom Queens Park Rangers visit Swansea City, while improving Burnley, who are one place off the bottom but unbeaten in three games, host Newcastle United.
