Brighton vs Wolves (1-2)
Wolves will seek to overcome their shock home loss to Watford last round. They will travel to Brighton, who they will seek to put away at their home. Brighton are a resilient force and winning this fixture at home shouldn’t be seen as a shock. However, Wolves should start favourites.
Fulham vs Bournemouth (2-1)
Having broken the transfer record for money spent in a window by a promoted team, Fulham were expected to be a better unit. Defensively they have been a mess, to the extent they are the leaders for most goals conceded so far this season. They face an in-form Bournemouth at home. With a quarter of the season complete, a win in this fixture should jump start their season.
Liverpool vs Cardiff (4-0)
Buoyed by their UCL hammering of Red Star Belgrade, Liverpool will once again be at Anfield. This time they will face a struggling opponent in Cardiff City who were brilliant in their last fixture against Fulham. Their luck is unlikely to be the same this week as Liverpool will be seeking to repeat their midweek scoreline at the very least.
Southampton vs Newcastle (1-0)
Southampton will seek to get further away from the drop zone with a victory again cellar dwellers Newcastle. The south coast team should edge this tie.
Watford vs Huddersfield (2-0)
Watford will seek to follow on from their impressive victory again Wolves last round with another convincing victory against next from bottom Huddersfield. Wagner’s men, on their day, can spring a surprise against any opponents; however, that is unlikely to happen in this round.
Leicester vs West Ham (2-0)
The battle of the inconsistent teams will seek Leicester at home against West Ham. The Hammers seem to be getting better under Pellegrini but the home team are favoured here.
Burnley vs Chelsea (1-3)
Coming off the back of a severe hammering from the champions, Chelsea will be seeking to inflict another damaging defeat to Burnley. The Clarets will seek redemption and continue to be a bogey side to the Londoners. Chelsea should be strong enough on the day to see of this challenge.
Crystal Palace vs Arsenal (1-3)
Arsenal who have been in fine form in all competitions will travel to the other side of London to face Crystal Palace. Palace in the past have been a thorn in Arsenal’s flesh and will be expected to caused problems once again. The Gunner should be too good at the end of it all.
Manchester United vs Everton (2-1)
United will host a good Everton side who will be gunning for all three points. Jose’s men should do enough for the win, which is needed at this point to begin their climb from mid-table.
Tottenham vs Manchester City (1-2)
Spurs threw away another potential chance to stay alive in UCL after drawing with PSV. City, on the other hand, won easily and are in pole position to get out their group. City should have more confidence going into this fixture, even though it’s on the road to another top six team. Confidence aside, Pep’s men are stronger and have less injury concerns to top player, therefore they should win.
