Tottenham vs Southampton
Spurs will seek to regain a place in the top four as the second half of the season begins. They face an inconsistent Southampton team who got a well-needed point in the last league fixture. The North London side with an in-form Harry Kane should run out winners, with Kane seeking to break Shearer’s record for goals in a calendar year for club and country.
Bournemouth vs West Ham
After what could be referred to as a shock home defeat at home to Newcastle, West Ham will seek to rebound on the road against Bournemouth, who also lost over the weekend and have returned into the bottom three. Bournemouth at home should be able to pull off a hard-fought win.
Chelsea vs Brighton
The seemingly outgoing champions will seek to get back to winning way at home against an ever-resilient Brighton. A Chelsea win is not a foregone conclusion albeit expected. The quality of the Londoners will see them through.
Huddersfield vs Stoke City
Huddersfield will seek to solidify themselves in the league with a home with against Stoke who have only been consistent at being bad. The promoted team should start favourites to edge this fixture.
Manchester United vs Burnley
After conceding a last-second equalizer in their last fixture to Leicester, United will seek to put away a consistent Burnley, even though they were blown away by Spurs in their last fixture. United will get it right at home and edge this fixture.
Watford vs Leicester
Watford after a brilliant start, have been racking up the losses as the games go by. They will face a solid Leicester side at home and another loss should be the result.
West Brom vs Everton
Based on the form book, West Brom should be suffering a loss at home to Everton. Sacking a relegation saver in Tony Pulis could soon prove to be a big mistake as Everton should put away the team from Birmingham.
Liverpool vs Swansea City
Having sacked Paul Clement and got a home draw against Crystal Palace, the Swans will seek to build on that result with a hope to leave the bottom three. Alas, they face a free-scoring Liverpool who will usually concede no matter the fixture, but should put them away at home with scant regards.
Newcastle vs Manchester City
Having shocked West Ham at home, the champions-elect would be the last team Newcastle would hope to face, especially at home, as they seek to not re-enter the relegation zone. City should extend theirs and the BPL record of consecutive victories to eighteen at full time.
Crystal Palace vs Arsenal
Palace is on a good run and will seek to upset Arsenal as they did in April. A repeat of a shock victory shouldn’t be a surprise result, especially with a now solid Palace playing at home against an inconsistent Arsenal.
Merry Christmas everyone and good luck!
