Crystal Palace v Chelsea – Away win
Palace will put up a fight against Chelsea, though Jose Mourinho’s Blues go into this game having scored 11 in their last three league outings. Chelsea should have too much for the Eagles as they look to extend their lead at the top of the table.
Southampton v Newcastle United – Home win
The Saints were impressive in the first half last time out, despite Spurs overcoming them with a change of tactics at half time. Newcastle, though, haven’t scored in nine of their last 13 league games, and were easily picked off by Everton in midweek.
Stoke v Hull – Home win
Three of the last four encounters between Stoke and Hull in league competition at the Britannia Stadium have resulted in draws – with the Tigers not winning. The Potters are also on a run of three wins in their last four at home, undefeated, and could snatch a victory here again.
Swansea v Norwich – Draw
Norwich have won three of the last five against the Swans – losing none – and Garry Monk’s side have not tasted victory in their last six league games. However, the Canaries have not won on the road in their last seven, so a draw is likely here.
West Brom v Cardiff City – Draw
Cardiff have lost just once in their last seven (winning three) against the Baggies in all competitions. West Brom have drawn five of their previous seven in the league at home and the relegation rivals are set for a close encounter.
Bolton v Wigan – Away win
Dougie Freedman’s Trotters go into this match on a run of eight games with just one defeat. Wigan, on the other hand, have won six of their last seven on the road in all competitions, and the promotion-chasers will be looking to put their 1-0 defeat to QPR behind them.
Ipswich v Nottingham Forest – Home win
The Tractor Boys have won four of their last six coming into this clash with the club that are next to them in the Championship table. Managerless Forest are without a victory in nine in all competitions, and look likely to fall foul of former forward David McGoldrick – as highly rated centre back Jamaal Lascelles will miss the trip to Portman Road through injury.
Sheffield Wednesday v Watford – Draw
The Owls have won their last four at home, but must be wary of Hornets attacker Fernando Forestieri, who has three in as many appearances against them and may return. As both sides have very average clean sheet records this season, and are next to another in the table, a share of the spoils is a safe bet.
Aberdeen v Dundee United – Home win
The Dons have already done a league double over the Tannadice team this term. Jackie McNamara’s men may have won three on the bounce, but Aberdeen have lost at home just once since Boxing Day.
Arsenal v Manchester City – Away win
Arsene Wenger’s side are unbeaten in their 14 home Premier League games this season, since losing to Aston Villa at the Emirates on the opening day. Manchester City haven’t lost in their last nine league matches, though, and destroyed the Gunners 6-3 at home in December.
Hearts v Hibernian – Draw
Although this is a derby, hosts Hearts last won in January, and are on a run of four straight Scottish Premiership defeats. Couple that with their dire financial straits and the fact Hibs have no victory in six, and this all-Edinburgh encounter has draw written all over it.
Fulham v Everton – Draw
Everton are on flying form, having won four consecutive league games, but Fulham have lost just two of their previous 12 home games against the Toffees. The two sides have drawn twice in the last three matches at Craven Cottage.
Chesterfield v Peterborough – Chesterfield win FL Trophy
The Spireites have won four of the last six meetings, and conceded the fewest goals in League Two. Posh may come from a higher division, but have let in almost as many as they have scored. Peterborough’s poor form, two wins in seven, contrasts sharply with two defeats in eight for Chesterfield.
Liverpool v Tottenham – Home win
In what could be the tie of the weekend, Liverpool have only lost one home game this term, and a win would keep the pressure on Chelsea at the top, with the Reds just one point behind. Spurs, meanwhile, boast the second best away record behind Manchester United.
Sunderland v West Ham – Home win
The Black Cats can climb out of the relegation zone if results go their way, and will be encouraged after a gutsy performance against Liverpool. Sam Allardyce is under pressure from Hammers fans to play better football and, with their league status largely secured, could find it hard against a Sunderland team fighting for their lives.
