Potters tackle Toffees at Britannia

Mark Hughes’ Stoke City welcome Everton to the Britannia Stadium in the pick of this weekend’s 3pm Premier kick-offs, as the hosts search for a fourth consecutive fixture victory against their close domestic rivals.

Only a single point separates Stoke from Roberto Martinez’s Toffees, with the visitors narrowly below them in 11th position, and the home side are 4/1 with Coral to secure three points and both teams scoring.

Everton have suffered three successive losses at the hands of the Potters, including a thrilling 4-3 defeat in December, and odds of 40/1 can be had on there being another seven or more goals being struck this time out.

Lukaku to inspire Everton again?

In that previous seven-goal epic, Belgian frontman Romelu Lukaku bagged a brace, and he is 6/1 to do so again, while former Bayern Munich winger Xherdan Shaqiri is 11/4 to net anytime after a double of his own in the reverse encounter.

The visiting Merseysiders have been on stuttering run of form of late, prevailing in just one of their previous six league outings, and they are 7/4 to overturn that barren streak on their travels to Stoke.

Spurs out to maintain rampant run over Watford

Two of the season’s surprise packages collide at White Hart Lane as Tottenham host Watford, with the travelling Hornets hoping their recent form can see them earn a first fixture win since 1994 in London.

Watford v Tottenham Hotspur - Barclays Premier League - Vicarage Road

Spurs have earned four straight wins over their latest opponents, including a narrow 2-1 triumph last year at Vicarage Road, and Mauricio Pochettino’s men are 5/4 to emerge with three points without conceding on home turf.

Although, Quique Sanchez Flores’ visitors arrive for this clash on the back of holding champions Chelsea to scoreless draw, following up back-to-back league and FA Cup victories, and they are 13/2 for their first fixture success in over two decades.

Harry Kane and Odion Ighalo will both be aiming to continue their impressive season form and Tottenham’s clinical sharpshooter is 3/1 to open proceedings, while the latter Hornets hitman is 2/1 to strike anytime.

Reds look to further Sunderland misery

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool are hoping to boost their European position prospects with a victory over relegation strugglers Sunderland at Anfield this weekend, and the Reds will be confident of doing so having won five of their last six meetings.

The Black Cats sit second from bottom after just two wins from their previous 10 top tier matches, while Liverpool have also struggled lately with only a single victory from their last five outings.

Sam Allardyce’s visiting Wearsiders are 7/1 to cause an upset on their travels, while the Reds are 9/2 to dispatch four or more goals on home soil.

Christian Benteke has endured some criticism of late but will see this fixture as a chance to get regain confidence and goal scoring form. The Belgian striker is 10/3 net the game’s last strike, while new Sunderland signing Dame N’Doye is 10/3 to fire in anytime.

Swans seek home ruling over Palace

At the Liberty Stadium, Swansea City are seeking to gain vital points in their bid to move away from the daunting relegation zone, as they welcome a Crystal Palace outfit also in need of a season jump-start.

Crystal Palace v Swansea City - Barclays Premier League - Selhurst Park

Three of the last four encounters between this top-flight pair have ended all square, including a goalless stalemate at Selhurst Park in December, so another share of the spoils is 11/5 to occur here.

The Swans have enjoyed a mini revival under new Italian coach Francesco Guidolin, now unbeaten in three domestic outings which also includes two wins over Watford and Everton, making them 6/5 for another three points.

After making a bright start to the campaign, Alan Pardew’s Eagles have had their wings clipped in recent weeks, having now gone without a win in seven league outings, including five successive defeats.

Emmanuel Adebayor could be the man to inspire them back to winning ways and he is 7/4 to strike anytime, while Swans attacker Andre Ayew is 9/2 to open the scoring.

Villa vying for crucial Canaries coup

The division’s rock-bottom club Aston Villa have endured a truly ungraceful domestic decline this season and they will look to reinstate some pride when they host Alex Neil’s Norwich City.

Remi Garde’s Villans are 27/20 to win only their third Premier League game of the season, while the visiting Canaries are 11/5 to prevail on the road.

Much hope falls on Rudy Gestede to help the stuttering West Midlands club overturn disastrous fortunes and he is 7/4 to score anytime, while new Norwich marksman Patrick Bamford is 7/4 to get on the scoresheet.

Steve McClaren’s Toon have dropped into the bottom three despite making a host of new acquisitions in the winter window, and their West Midlands opponents are 11/4 to take three points from their Tyneside trip.

Georginio Wijnaldum is 6/4 to add to his impressive season tally for the Magpies, while his new teammate Andros Townsend is 11/4 open his account. For the visitors, Saido Berahino is 7/4 to dispatch anytime after surprisingly remaining with the club throughout the January transfer window.
