TOTTENHAM v ARSENAL 12:45
How often do games of this import end in draws? Tottenham would be slightly disappointed and Arsenal delighted with a point right now. But both would live to fight another day if the spoils were shared.
Prediction: Tottenham 1 – 1 Arsenal
CHELSEA v STOKE 15:00
Chelsea are starting to play with the efficiency and swagger of old under the superb management of Guus Hiddink. Stoke will provide stiff opposition, but not stiff enough.
Chelsea 2 – 1 Stoke
EVERTON V WEST HAM 15:00
Everton have improved of late but West Ham are on fire. Will their energy-sapping midweek win over Spurs affect them adversely?
Everton 1 – West Ham 0
MANCHESTER CITY V ASTON VILLA 15:00
Manchester City’s form has been very patchy of late but even they couldn’t implode at home to Aston Villa could they?
Manchester City 4 – 0 Aston Villa
NEWCASTLE V BOURNEMOUTH 15:00
Plucky Bournemouth visit the North East. How bad can it get for beleaguered Newcastle boss Steve McClaren?
Newcastle 1 – 0 Bournemouth
SOUTHAMPTON V SUNDERLAND 15:00
Southampton look strong again. But Sunderland are not going to lie down under Big Sam.
Southampton 2 – 1 Sunderland
SWANSEA V NORWICH 15:00
Two struggling sides means a hard fought draw.
Swansea 1 v 1 Norwich
WATFORD V LEICESTER 17:30

CRYSTAL PALACE V LIVERPOOL 13:30
Liverpool have a had a tough week but will be buoyed by their demolition of Manchester City in midweek. Crystal Palace are hoping to come out of a bad run.
Crystal Palace 1 – 1 Liverpool
WEST BROM V MANCHESTER UNITED 16:00
If Manchester United can win this one then they may be worth a punt for an improbable title tilt. But this is not an easy place to pick up three points.
West Brom 0 – 0 Manchester United
