Everton v West Ham – Home win
West Ham may have won four on the bounce, but they have not beaten Everton in 12 meetings. This run includes three straight defeats.
Everton have won seven of their last eight at Goodison Park too, with the one blip coming when goalkeeper Tim Howard was sent off early on against Sunderland.
Fulham v Chelsea – Draw
Fulham haven’t scored in the last three west London derbies with Chelsea, but in Felix Magath’s home debut in charge, they can get a result. Chelsea are winless in three on the road.
Hull v Newcastle – Home win
Hull have already won at St James’ Park and can triumph again against opposition struggling for goals. While Newcastle have netted once across their last five games, Hull have scored nine times.
Stoke v Arsenal – Draw
Since Stoke’s promotion to the Premier League, Arsenal have only triumphed on one of their six visits and the Potters have only lost in one of their last six at the Britannia, which was their goal-fest with Liverpool.
Bolton v Blackburn – Away win
Bolton may have ended an eight-game winless streak against Watford last time, but Blackburn are good travellers, losing one of their last seven on the road in the league.
Burnley v Derby – Home win
Derby have already lost at Leicester, QPR and Nottingham Forest this season, showing they tend to struggle when visiting fellow promotion chasers. Burnley are unbeaten at Turf Moor in the Championship too.
Millwall v Brighton – Away win
Millwall have only won one of their last six at home, while Brighton haven’t scored in three Championship away games. The team playing at home haven’t won any of the last eight between this pair either.
Nottingham Forest v Wigan – Draw
Forest haven’t lost at home since November, while Wigan have picked up a burst of speed with four straight victories, including three in succession on the road.
Sheffield Wednesday v Middlesbrough – Away win
Three consecutive home defeats for the Owls, while Middlesbrough have real trouble in front of goal, having fired blanks in six straight fixtures. This barren streak can end here.
Aberdeen v St Johnstone – Home win
Two wins over Celtic in a month mean Aberdeen are full of confidence, while St Johnstone have lost five of their six games against opposition above them in the SPL standings.
Southampton v Liverpool – Away win
St Mary’s is a bit of a bogey ground for Liverpool, but Southampton haven’t beaten anyone above them at home in the league this season.
Aston Villa v Norwich – Home win
Man City and Tottenham haven’t managed to breach the Norwich defence at Carrow Road in recent weeks, but Norwich have lost four straight away games. Paul Lambert can beat his former club.
Swansea v Crystal Palace
No goals conceded in Swansea’s last three at home is a confidence boost and their long stints of possession can bring a victory against a Palace side that have lost three away games in a row.
Tottenham v Cardiff – Home win
Cardiff have only picked up six away points all season and Tottenham have taken 16 points from a possible 18 at White Hart Lane against bottom-half opposition.
Chesterfield v Portsmouth – Home win
Chesterfield may be top of League Two, but they have lost two of their last three, while Portsmouth have won two of their last three. However, the league table can prove correct to follow here.
