1. Liverpool – Watford

In the early kick-off the first and the last in the table meet at Anfield. Liverpool had European match during the midweek and we might see some rotation from Jurgen Klopp as the Reds are very impressive since start of the season. Nigel Pearson will lead Watford for the first time but he couldn’t asked for worse place to make his debut. Liverpool attacking options are impressive and our team considers that they will win easily.

2. Burnley – Newcastle

Newcastle are in a row of 2 consecutive wins and will want to continue the fine form with yet another display that could help them move up the table and further away from the relegation places. Same goes for Burnley as well and they do count on their home matches to gain points. In their last 2 home matches they lost to Man City and Crystal Palace, so the Clarets will want to make up to their fans.

3. Chelsea – Bournemouth

Chelsea entertain Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge in a bid to cement their place in the Top 4. Lampard’s young side progressed through the group stages of the UEFA Champions League and will be in good spirits for the match. Tammy Abraham returned and is crucial when it comes to scoring goals. The Blues have their transfer ban cancelled and it will be interesting to see who will they sign in January. Bournemouth need to start picking points if they want to be out relegation trouble. Our team is considering big win for Chelsea.

4. Leicester – Norwich

Leicester are the team in form apart from Liverpool and all eyes are on the Foxes to keep chasing the leaders. Brendan Roger’s extended his stay by signing new contract with the club. The Foxes are playing attractive football and many even consider that the team is playing even better compared to the champions winning side a few seasons ago. With Jamie Vardy, Maddison and Iheanacho up front, Roger’s can rely on different looking attack. The Foxes have advantage that they don’t have European commitments and will be fresh enough. Norwich can score goals and proved it since beginning of the season. Our team considers a high scoring event at the Walkers Stadium.

In the late kick off Southampton face West Ham in a match where points will be crucial. The Saints lost away at Newcastle after being in the leading position. The south coast club is in the relegation zone and they will be eager to get the win against fellow strugglers West Ham. The Hammers must play for their manager Pellegrini who is under pressure. The Hammers played well against Arsenal but lost so they will be now looking to bounce back.

Wolves face Tottenham in an entertaining fixture at the Molineux. Two of the greatest Portuguese managers will battle against one another and we will see who will come on top of the clash between Jose Mourinho and Nuno Espirito Santo. Wolves trashed Besiktas and will continue their adventure in the UEFA Europa League, whilst Spurs lost at Bayern but also progessed for the Knockout stages of the UEFA Champions League.

8. Man United – Everton

Manchester United seem to find their form and made huge progress during the past few weeks. The Red Devils are now on a hunt of 3 consecutive league win. Everton are also in high spirits after the winning debut of care-taker manager Duncan Ferguson and their impressive win over Chelsea last time round. This time they will have tough task to stop the enthusiastic attacking football by the young attacking United team. Our team considers a victory for the Manchester United team and another step in the right direction for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

9. Arsenal – Man City

In the derby match of the round Arsenal are facing the troubled Man City team. The Blues suffered derby day defeat and Pep Guardiola’s side will be eager to make the wrongs right against shaky Arsenal team which can not hit the ground running since Freddie Ljunberg’s appointment. The Gunners progressed in the Europa League but need to improve in the league. They did a first step in this direction by winning the London derby against West Ham and now will certainly want to win against City. Our team thinks that the spaces being left by the home side – City to win.

  • Manchester City 3 : 1 Arsenal
  • Arsenal 0 : 2 Manchester City

10. Crystal Palace – Brighton

In a fierce derby game on Monday night, Palace are welcoming Brighton. The London side is on a 3-match undefeated run so the Eagles will want to use the home advantage and get the bragging rights against their rivals. Brighton impressed during the last 2 matches – drawing against Wolves and beating Arsenal, so they will fancy their chances. Knowing the importance of the match for the both teams, our team considers a low-scoring affair at Selhurst Park.
