NORWICH City beware.

That is the message for the EPL's in-form team ahead of the Boxing Day clash with Chelsea.

The Canaries, who were unbeaten in 10 before the weekend loss at West Brom, face a Blues team which has scored 13 goals in its past two games, and Fernando Torres now can't stop scoring.

His goal in the 8-0 thrashing of Aston Villa was his seventh in six games and he seems to be enjoying his football under Rafa Benitez.

Manchester United too, will be champing at the bit after a frustrating 1-1 draw at Swansea allowed rival Manchester City to close the gap at the top to four points.

United takes on Newcastle at Old Trafford, with strikers Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie keen to put the profligacy against the Welsh side behind them.

City takes on Sunderland at the Stadium of Light, while Villa needs to bounce back with a win against Tottenham.

In other fixtures, Everton hosts Wigan, QPR plays West Brom, Reading entertains Swansea and Stoke plays Liverpool.
