Chelsea v Arsenal, Juventus v Roma and Paris St-Germain v Monaco - it may be the best Sunday line-up yet in 2014/15, and we have all the in-play trends you need for a profitable day's box-watching...

"Paris St-Germain have played at the Parc des Princes 16 times in 2014 and only once have their opponents misfired until the 27th minute and still gone on to find the net

Chelsea v Arsenal
Sunday, 14:05
Live on Sky Sports 1

Match Odds: Chelsea 1.695/7, Arsenal 5.69/2, The Draw 4.216/5

If you are convinced that Arsenal will avenge last season's 0-6 defeat at Chelsea with a win - and it is far from an outrageous prediction given that they have won at Stamford Bridge more often than any other visiting Premier League club (seven times) - then you will likely rate 5.69/2 as a generous price.

However, there is potential to attract bigger odds - or talk yourself out of that bet if they endure as disastrous a first 15 minutes as in March - by waiting for the first goal before betting. The Gunners came from behind to achieve each of their previous five victories at the Bridge, so are worth a small investment at huge odds if they go 0-1 down.

Juventus v Roma
Sunday, 17:00
Live on BT Sport 1

Match Odds: Juventus 1.9520/21, Roma 4.77/2, The Draw 3.55/2

Without intending to share some common ground with clichés that are beyond tired, Serie A top-of-the-table clashes rarely venture into "you attack, we attack" territory. On six of the past eight occasions that the sides who went on to finish first and second collided, the match was won to nil.

Juventus' meetings with Roma last season both fitted the trend - 3-0 and 1-0 triumphs for the Bianconeri - as does the fact that they haven't conceded yet five league games in, with the guests being breached just once too. So back whichever team breaks the deadlock to win to nil, for which Juventus are fancied more at 3.259/4.

Paris St-Germain v Monaco
Sunday, 20:00
Live on BT Sport 1

Match Odds: Paris St-Germain 1.538/15, Monaco 7.613/2, The Draw 4.47/2

Neither of these clubs have delivered on their hype so far in this Ligue 1 campaign. Monaco have lost four of their first eight fixtures having shifted policy from signing galacticos to focussing spending on the academy, while Paris St-Germain's unbeaten start is undermined by five draws in eight.

The champions remain superb at home though, where they conquered Barcelona in the Champions League in midweek, winning 12 of their most recent 14 encounters and keeping nine clean sheets.

They are 2.1211/10 to shut Monaco out. The way to tell if it is a bet worth placing is to see if Leonardo Jardim's men net in the opening 27 minutes. Paris St-Germain have played at the Parc des Princes 16 times in 2014 and only once have their opponents misfired until that point and still gone on to find the net. So wait until that stage before backing the clean sheet - the price shouldn't change much.
