Burnley v Hull – Draw
Hull have taken five points from their last four fixtures, while Burnley are rooted to the bottom of the Premier League after three defeats on the spin. However, both clubs will fancy themselves to get something from the match, and this could be a hard fought draw.
Man Utd v Crystal Palace – Home win
Once upon a time, this fixture would have been academic, though Louis van Gaal’s side is light at the back, and Palace will fancy themselves to cause an upset here, putting 10 men behind the ball and hitting on the counter attack. The home side have the requisite quality, however, and are likely to just edge this encounter.
Southampton v Leicester – Home win
If results go their way, Southampton will be a point off first place, should they also beat Leicester. The Saints haven’t lost since the first game of the season, while Leicester occupy the third spot in the relegation zone. Ronald Koeman’s side can run riot against the Foxes here, and boost their goal difference even further.
West Ham v Aston Villa – Draw
The home outfit have taken 10 points from their last four fixtures, a run which has seen them climb to fifth in the Premier League, and are level with Arsenal on points who are a place ahead of them. Villa, meanwhile, have endured a slump, which sees them just a point off the drop zone. A draw, though, could be the likeliest result here.
Birmingham v Cardiff – Home win
The Blues are experiencing a mini revival following the appointment of new boss Gary Rowett. They shocked the Championship last time out by beating third place Watford, while Cardiff are hot and cold, taking six points from four games. High in confidence, Rowett will have his team well motivated and could grab another win.
Brighton v Blackburn – Away win
The Seagulls are leaking goals and Rovers have Rudy Gestede in fantastic form with four in his last three outings. Gary Bowyer can expect a happy day on the south coast.
Ipswich v Watford – Draw
As the Hornets have won just one of the last four, but have a proven Championship strike partnership, as does Mick McCarthy, then these sides should cancel one another out with a score draw looking likely.
Middlesbrough v Bournemouth – Draw
The top two clash in the Championship, and a share of the spoils should continue decent form for both teams. Expect to see at least one of these sides in the Premier League next term.
Nottingham Forest v Norwich – Draw
Stuart Pearce’s Reds need to stop the rot, and the Canaries are in pretty poor form themselves. Neither side are keeping clean sheets, so back a score draw.
QPR v Man City – Away win
Like when they played Man United, Harry Redknapp’s Hoops could face a real backlash from the Premier League champions. City should crush QPR.
Aberdeen v Celtic – Draw
Both teams are in a good run of form, and have each won twice in their last four meetings with each other in all competitions, so a draw may be the best bet.
Sunderland v Everton – Draw
Again, both Sunderland and Everton have won two games apiece in their last four head-to-heads, so a draw could be on the cards here too. The Black Cats started the season slowly, but have picked up the pace recently.
Tottenham v Stoke – Home win
Spurs have won their last three games against the Potters, and will take confidence in their last minute victory over Aston Villa last time out. Prolific scorer this season Harry Kane got the crucial goal that day, so should start to lift his side in the league as well.
West Brom v Newcastle – Away win
Alan Pardew has somehow turned his Magpies around this term, leading them to three successive victories in the Premier League. So back them to carry on their form against the Baggies, who have won just once in their last four.
Swansea v Arsenal – Draw
The Gunners have won their last two away games with the Swans, but both clubs sit high up in the table in fourth and sixth respectively. Arsenal will be hurt after their midweek Champions League draw with Anderlecht, so expect the same result here.
