Aston Villa v Arsenal – Away win
Arsenal have only lost once to Villa in their last seven encounters, and hold the historic advantage heading into this clash, having triumphed over the Birmingham-based side 77 times in all competitions. Chilean superstar Alexis Sanchez scored last time out and will be hungry to hit home again.
Burnley v Sunderland – Away win
The Clarets are still without a win in all competitions this term, whilst the Black Cats have only lost one game. Gus Poyet’s boys can also take heart from the fact that Sunderland have only tasted defeat at Turf Moor once in their last nine visits.
Newcastle United v Hull City – Away win
Hull hold the recent head-to-head record against north east rivals Newcastle, with only one defeat to the Magpies in their last six encounters. Steve Bruce’s side have won three games in all competitions this season, whilst under-pressure Alan Pardew has only managed to lead his team to one victory.
Swansea City v Southampton – Home win
Swansea are unbeaten at home in all competitions so far this campaign, under the stewardship of Manager of the Month Garry Monk. The Swans have netted nine goals in five games so far and hold the head-to-head record with 29 victories from 52 clashes with the Saints.
Derby County v Cardiff City – Home win
The Rams have notched up five victories from nine outings in all competitions so far this season, and will be looking to take advantage of the uncertainty surrounding the Bluebirds. Cardiff are without a win in four Championship games and currently sit 17th.
Fulham v Blackburn Rovers – Away win
The west Londoners have lost six of their last seven matches, only picking up a point against recent strugglers Cardiff, while Blackburn have won two out of their last four.
Leeds United v Huddersfield Town – Home win
The home side are in the ascendancy, having picked up seven points from their last three games, while Huddersfield are embedded in the relegation zone. This West Yorkshire derby is always tough; though, if Leeds are patient they can pick up a good result.
Millwall v Nottingham Forest – Away win
The East Midlands side are flying at the minute, at the top of the table, though Millwall is always a difficult place for any team to go. The Lions have been indifferent this term, having started well then losing their last two, and Forest forward Britt Assombalonga could be too much to handle.
Wolves v Bolton Wanderers – Draw
Dougie Freedman’s side have started to find some form after the international break, picking up four points from two matches, though Wolves have taken 11 out of 15, to earn a place in the top six. Their last two results have been draws, however, and it could be a sign of things to come against a resurgent Bolton side.
West Ham United v Liverpool – Draw
Brendan Rodgers will be looking for a response from his team after they won with a disappointing performance in the Champions League, and lost at home to Aston Villa just days earlier. Striker Mario Balotelli netted the first goal of his season in Europe, however, the Hammers battled hard to earn a point against Hull, and could put up another fight.
Dundee v Dundee United – Draw
These bitter rivals and close neighbours face each other once more, after Dundee’s promotion back to the top-flight. Both clubs have started the season reasonably well, and find themselves in the top half. Their last meeting resulted in a draw in 2013, so back that outcome again.
Tottenham v West Bromich Albion – Home win
Three out of the last four head-to-heads between Spurs and West Brom have been draws but, as West Brom are without a win from their opening four Premier League games, back Tottenham for victory. The Baggies have also lost their last two matches.
Leicester City v Manchester United – Away win
The Foxes have done remarkably well to gain five points from their first four matches (against Everton, Arsenal and Stoke) since promotion back to the top-flight, but now face a Man Utd side with renewed confidence. Back the Red Devils, who thrashed QPR 4-0, to shine once more.
Manchester City v Chelsea – Draw
Both sides go into this game on the back of disappointing results in the Champions League, so expect these wounded animals to fight to the death to try and restore pride. City and Chelsea have drawn just once in their last 21 meetings in all competitions, but this may just be one of those very rare occasions.
Wigan Athletic v Ipswich Town – Home win
The Latics have won their last four matches against the Tractor Boys, and never lost at home. Ipswich are in slightly better form that Wigan, but look likely to suffer their third defeat of the season here.
