Everton beat Hull
The Toffees are loving every minute of this season and in Lukaku they have a striker at the head of the Premier League scoring charts, and hungry for more. They’ll fancy their chances of taking all three points from an opponent in the relegation zone.
Chelsea beat Stoke
Chelsea hammered Stoke 4-2 when these sides last met, at Stamford Bridge on New Year’s Eve. Stoke are a capable side, but have won just two of their last seven, and that won’t interest backers. The Blues are chasing a hat-trick, after results over Swansea and West Ham. Expect goals.
Newcastle beat Birmingham
Newcastle are making hard work of winning this league, and after taking control, they have let Brighton and Huddersfield back in by taking just one point from the last six. Birmingham City are very easy to oppose however, and that’s just what we do.
Fulham beat Wolves
The Cottagers are on a fantastic run of form, and look set to extend their season via a play-off finish. Confidence is high at the club, and that should see them past a Wolves who have managed to lose five of their last eight. Home win drops in.
QPR beat Rotherham
Rotherham are another side we are quick to go against, and that’s not a bad strategy, with The Millers losing nine of their last 10, and all their last six, to take a firm grip of 24th-place. They are already relegated, bar the shouting, and QPR, unbeaten in three, do us a favour.
Bolton beat Northampton
The race for League One promotion, and Bolton are poised to strike and grab a place in the top-two – progressing without the need for the play-offs. Northampton are well out of the major places, down in 14th, and were beaten by Bolton when the pair last met. The Trotters look handy enough.
Fleetwood beat AFC Wimbledon
AFC are a difficult side to nail down. They seem incapable of putting together a run of form, with their last six showing three wins, two draws and a defeat. Fleetwood have been sensational, losing just one of 10, a run boasting five wins. They are second and capable of adding another maximum.
Doncaster beat Leyton Orient
Orient are riddled with problems on and off the pitch, and look set to be playing Non-League football next season. Donny hammered them 3-1 in November, and the Londoners were probably a better team back then. Top of the league will do us.
Rangers beat Hamilton
A big day at Ibrox as new boss Pedro Caixinha takes charge for the first time. Buzzing from getting a draw at Celtic Park last week, Rangers players know they’re playing for their futures. They beat Hamilton 6-0 in the cup here earlier this month. Not too much will change.
Hibs beat Dumbarton
Scottish Championship leaders Hibs have been handed a real opportunity to win this league at a canter, with main rivals Dundee United dropping away. This one makes perfect sense, and the Edinburgh club are more than good enough.
