NEWCASTLE (8th) v QPR (19th)

PARDEW OUT! PARDEW OUT! PARDEW OUT!

Is it too early to give Alan Pardew the Comeback of the Season award? The Newcastle manager had all of Tyneside on his back less than two months ago and looked certain to be on his way out of the club. Five matches later (and five wins later) and Pardew’s side are up to eighth and just two points off the top four.

MANCHESTER CITY (3rd) v SWANSEA (5th)

Maybe, just maybe, the international break came at exactly the right time for Manchester City. The Premier League champions have fallen eight points off the title pace and desperately need to get their season back on track. Swansea, meanwhile, are still flying high in fifth and beat Arsenal last time out.

CHELSEA - 2014-15 PREMIER LEAGUE CHAMPIONS

So impressive has Chelsea’s unbeaten start to the season been that bookmaker Paddy Power has already paid out on the table toppers to go on and win the title. Total cost: £400,000. Big gamble! Or is it? I mean, they do look pretty unstoppable...

CHELSEA (1st) v WEST BROM (13th)

Chelsea have travelled to Anfield, Old Trafford and the Etihad already this season and remain unbeaten with more wins, goals and points than anyone else. Title race over? Next up, a West Brom side that won on their last visit to London against Tottenham in September.

STUBBORN WENGER v FLEXIBLE VAN GAAL

While Arsene Wenger continues to stick to his preferred system of tricky, technical midfielders behind a lone frontman, Louis van Gaal has changed formation and personnel all season. Goal’s Greg Stobart has taken a look at how Wenger could learn a thing or two from his counterpart...

ARSENAL (6th) v MANCHESTER UNITED (7th)

Arsenal... Manchester United... an epic battle between SIXTH and, er, SEVENTH? What happened? Gone are the days of top-of-the-table, title-deciding matches between these two. The fallen giants (too soon?) of English football only have their sights set on a Champions League place this season, with today’s winner potentially going fourth.

REPUBLIC OF IRELAND 4-1 USA - O’NEILL REACTION

Republic of Ireland manager Martin O’Neill: "It was nice to win the game. I thought we were a bit tentative in the first half. We scored with our first attack; great through ball by McGoldrick and Pilkington took it well. I thought the second-half performance was terrific.”

REPUBLIC OF IRELAND 4-1 USA

Jon Arnold reports: “The United States couldn't cope with Ireland's attack today and will have a lot to think about going into the January camp in 2015. Ireland will be thrilled at some of their discoveries and pleased to put the Scotland defeat in the rear-view mirror.”

STURRIDGE REMINDER

Goal understands Daniel Sturridge has suffered ANOTHER setback in his recovery from injury. The striker sustained a thigh strain again in training today and is doubtful for Sunday’s match against Crystal Palace. He hasn't played since England's 1-0 win over Norway on September 3.

FRANCE 1-0 SWEDEN

Tom Maston reports: “France eventually did enough to see off Sweden. They were dominant from the off, but they had to wait for Varane's late header to break the visitors down. They end 2014 with just one defeat in the calendar year, and already look a good bet to go far in Euro 2016.”

LOW ON GERMANY PERFORMANCE

“I could not have wished for a better end of this year,” he adds. “The conditions were extremely difficult with this heavy rain and this pitch. In the second half we played very well. I was pleased how the team played tactically, since it was the first time we played with this system.”
