    No further reaction from Old Trafford tonight following this evening's news that Robin van Persie has been ruled out for up to six weeks with a sprained knee. Here are the games he could miss - the standout fixtures being those Champions League quarter-final legs that, without his goals against Olympiakos, Manchester United may well not have had in their diary.

  • DERBY v FOREST [derby]
    So Will Hughes, who was named Football League Young Player of the Year last weekend, is only named on the bench for Derby today after limping off against Reading with a slight groin strain so Jeff Hendrick starts. John Eustace is suspended for two games after picking up 10 yellow cards this season and so George Thorne, on loan from West Brom, makes his debut. Derby make four changes in total with Patrick Bamford replacing Simon Dawkins and Michael Keane replacing Richard Keogh.

  • DERBY v FOREST [nottinghamforest]
    Andy Reid misses out for Nottingham Forest after limping out of the Reds' goalless home draw with Doncaster last weekend and that has paved the way for Jamie Mackie to be named in the starting XI with Darius Henderson on the bench. Guy Moussi replaces Greg Halford in the only other change. Our coverage from the iPro Stadium starts on Sky Sports 1 at noon - and we'll have full updates here on the blog.

Much of the build-up to this game has been dominated by talk of Arsene Wenger taking charge of Arsenal for the 1,000th time.

  • CHELSEA v ARSENAL [arsenal]
    Arsene Wenger makes no changes to the team that won at Tottenham as he selects an Arsenal line-up for the 1,000th time. Tomas Rosicky faced a late fitness test, but has come through that and does start again after scoring the winner last Sunday.
    3/22/2014 11:54:57 AM
  • CHELSEA v ARSENAL [chelsea]
    Jose Mourinho makes three changes to the team that lost to Aston Villa last Saturday. Andre Schurrle, David Luiz and Samuel Eto'o all come into the side, but two of those changes were enforced as Willian and Ramires are suspended after being sent off last week. Fernando Torres drops to the bench.

    No surprise to hear the Soccer Saturday boys start the show with a bit of chat about the lunchtime Premier League game. Matt Le Tiss underlines what's so important about this game.
    [mattletissier]If Arsenal go there and lose I think they are probably out of it [title race]. I think that would be too big a hill to climb. BUT if they go there and get a draw they are still bang in it.

  • [goal]GOAL! DERBY 1-0 FOREST (Bryson)
    What a start for Derby in the east midlands grudge match. Forest twice fail to clear their lines as crosses come in from left, then right. Bryson is loitering on the 18-yard line and bludgeons his way through a limp Moussi challenge to beat Darlow via a deflection off Collins
    3/22/2014 12:21:20 PM
  • Well that didn't take long... Bryson follows up his own effort to put Derby ahead.

    3/22/2014 12:23:30 PM
  • Derby hadn't scored in their previous four matches - but ended that drought after just six minutes. This celebration took place in front of the Forest fans too...

    3/22/2014 12:23:55 PM
    [jeffstelling]Nottingham Forest have not won in their last seven games and have scored just once in their previous three. The worst possible start as far as they are concerned.

    3/22/2014 12:26:57 PM
    That Bryson goal is is 13th this season - and Derby's first in March. Forest trying to respond, Mackie riding a couple of challenges on the right and firing across goal

    Paul Merson is prediciting a 3-1 win for the home side in the early Premier League game.[paulmerson]
    Chelsea can't afford to have the mind-set that they'd take a draw. They have to win every game to keep the others at bay. But Arsenal can't keep falling over the line because when you play against top teams like Chelsea, as Tottenham found out not long ago, they'll rip you apart. If Arsenal don't pick their game up, I can see Chelsea winning this game by two goals.

    Mackie in the thick of things again as he goes down off the ball after colliding with Buxton. He's not happy as he holds his head, but replays suggest Buxton stands his ground and nothing more. Mackie ahs a legitimate grievance soon afterwards, though, as Thorne hacks him down to earn a booking
