Liverpool's Michael Owen looks set to terrorise the Chelsea defence in the big match in the English Premier League this weekend at Anfield, while invincible Arsenal will eagerly roll out their big guns to shoot down any hopes Sunderland have of a revival from their limp form. West Ham's flamboyant Italian striker Paulo di Canio scored a goal-of-the-season contender last week and Birmingham City will have their hands full marking the fiery one tomorrow.
