Arsenal v Watford – Home win
The Hornets have won just one of their last six away league matches and failed to score in four of five and, as Watford have never beaten Arsenal in Premier League, this fixture should hold no problems for Arsene Wenger’s side.
Bournemouth v Man City – Away win
Bournemouth and Manchester City have played seven times in the league, with the Citizens winning five, losing none, so their firepower should be able to blow the Cherries away.
Norwich v Newcastle – Away win
Newcastle United have won four and lost none of their last six league matches against the Canaries, with new boss Rafa Benitez yet to drop a point to the Norfolk outfit. This match is the proverbial ‘six pointer’ and the tactical nous of the new Magpies manager will be key.
Stoke City v Swansea – Home win
Stoke are unbeaten in four league home matches against the Swans and sit above Liverpool and Chelsea at eighth in the table; therefore, Mark Hughes’ men should ease to victory.
Sunderland v West Brom – Away win
Tony Pulis’ Baggies have lost just one of their previous 12 league meetings with Sunderland and Saido Berahino has scored three goals is as many appearances against the Black Cats. Despite Sam Allardyce’s relegation defying powers, this match may be beyond his side.
West Ham v Crystal Palace – Home win
The Hammers are chasing a Champions League spot and are unbeaten at home in the last 12 games. Palace, on the other hand, have the second worst league record in over the last six games and therefore look nailed on to lose this clash.
Cardiff v Derby – Home win
Russell Slade’s Bluebirds are one place and three points shy of the play-offs and have lost only twice at home all season. The Rams are without an away day delight in three, so the Midlands men may be turned over in Cardiff.
Huddersfield v Sheffield Wednesday – Draw
At Hillsborough, the Owls have the best attacking record in the league, but have struggled on the road this campaign, losing six and drawing eight. Leading Wednesday marksman Gary Hooper has only managed one in the last seven games and will find it hard to score against David Wagner’s side.
Rotherham v Leeds – Home win
Neil Warnock’s Millers have won four of their last five and clawed their way out of the relegation zone as a result. Rotherham will take that confidence into the clash with their Yorkshire foes. Leeds look set for another season of mid-table obscurity, sitting a disappointing 13th in the table with continuing antics off the field.
Liverpool v Tottenham – Draw
Jurgen Klopp’s crew have won five and lost none of their previous six league meetings with Spurs. Tottenham have only recorded one victory in their last 21 league visits to Anfield. However, Mauricio Pochettino’s side have lost only one of their last 14 league away matches and are in the title chase, so look set to avoid a defeat.
Udinese v Napoli – Draw
Udinese haven’t lost any of their previous seven home league games against Napoli, winning three and drawing four. The Naples side are just three points off leaders Juventus, but are vulnerable at the back and often allow teams to create chances.
Leicester v Southampton- Home win
The flying Foxes are unbeaten in 11 home games and will look to extend their five-point gap at the top of the table. Momentum is with Claudio Ranieri’s men and Southampton will be the next victim of the Leicester juggernaut.
Lazio v Roma – Away win
Roma are 18 points ahead of their Eternal City rivals and have won eight of their last nine Serie A scraps. Lazio are without a Rome derby win in five clashes and, because the Giallorossi can attack very strongly on the counter, the Eagles may succumb again.
Man Utd v Everton – Draw
Roberto Martinez’s men have lost just one of their previous 14 top-flight away matches and won four of the previous seven clashes against the Red Devils.
However, United have lost just twice at home all season and boast the third best home record. A tight affair is expect in Manchester, as Louis van Gaal looks to push for a top four place.
Sevilla v Real Sociedad – Home win
The Bathtubs club have won their last 13 home games, so should overcome Sociedad with ease. The San Sebastian side are without a win in five and sit a disappointing 11th.
