West Brom v Tottenham

Crystal Palace v West Ham

Sunday

Middlesbrough v Watford

Southampton v Burnley

…………………………………………………………….

The clash of former titans go down at the Stamford Bridge as Chelsea and Leicester clash for the points. The hosts could only get a point from their league encounters last season and will hope to get a better result this time. Leicester aren’t looking particularly impressive, so a Chelsea win is possible

Prediction : Chelsea to win

With Swansea unbeaten in 4 of their most recent visits to the Emirates ( 3W 1D), this game could be about breaking the jinx or keeping a record intact. But Arsenal are 13 places ahead of the Swans on the table, and that should count.

Prediction : Arsenal to win

Bournemouth host Hull City at the Vitality Stadium, and both sides will fight for their 3rd win of the season. Going by history, the visitors have a chance. Hull are yet to lose in 2 appearances at Bournemouth’s home, while the hosts have won just once in their recent 11 clashes. (D4 L7).

Prediction : Draw

Close buddies Pep and Koeman will face off in a clash of similar style as Manchester City play host to Everton at the Etihad. Both sides have lost just once this season, but given City’s 6-game unbeaten (W4 D2) against the Merseysiders in the league, a win seems possible. Especially if they are to make a statement following the defeat to Tottenham prior to the international break.

Prediction : Manchester City to win

The only 2 sides without any wins this term Stoke, and Sunderland will battle for a first win between themselves, and it could turn a feisty affair given the history of sending offs in games between the 2.

Prediction : Stoke to win

West Brom have won just twice this term, and how they’d fare against the high-octane Tottenham style is unknown. Spurs can make another statement with an emphatic win at a ground where they have often settled for a draw.

Prediction : Tottenham to win

8th placed Crystal Palace meet with 18th placed West Ham at the Selhurst Park, and it would be interesting to see how the visitors try to kick off their resurgence against a strong opponent.

Prediction : Draw

…………………………………………………………….

On Sunday Middlesbrough host Watford and would particularly be wary of Troy Deeney. The Hornets’ skipper has scored 6 times against the Smoggies and wouldn’t mind wrecking more havoc as Watford search for their 3rd win of the season.

Prediction : Watford to win

Southampton have made the Saint Mary’s a fortress this term, keeping 6 clean sheets in as many games of recent and scoring in 13. How a struggling Burnley will get by interests many.

Prediction : Southampton to win

…………………………………………………………….

Bitter rivals Liverpool and Manchester United clash on Monday night, and we just can’t wait to see how it goes down between Klopp and Mourinho.

Prediction : Liverpool to win
