Manchester City clash with Liverpool while Spurs face West Ham test
Man City must win at Anfield to keep their title hopes alive while Tottenham face a tough trip to West Ham on a busy round of midweek Premier League action.
Can Liverpool get revenge for their Capital One Cup defeat? Can Arsenal bounce back with a win over Swansea and will Marcus Rashford continue his incredible scoring streak. Here are our predictions.
LIVERPOOL: Liverpool's players will have revenge on their minds when they face Manchester City just three days after their Wembley meeting. Jurgen Klopp will have to make changes and it might be a chance for Christian Benteke to remind everyone just why the Reds paid in excess of £30million for him last summer.
Prediction: Liverpool 2-1 Manchester City -- Dave Usher
MAN CITY: Manchester City have been rejuvenated, after two vital wins against Dynamo Kiev in the Champions League and Liverpool in the League Cup final. That could be the turning point for the season and fans are getting confident ahead of big matches again. With Liverpool having gone through the same 120 minutes and penalties on Sunday and losing, could that give them a desire for vengeance or could they still be licking their wounds? Despite all that, City don't win at Anfield.
Prediction: Liverpool 1-1 Manchester City -- David Mooney
WEST HAM: Game's against Tottenham are always special occasions but, with Spurs in with a real chance of the title and the Hammers having their best ever Premier League season, this last-ever meeting under floodlights at the Boleyn looks tantalising. Difficult to see a winner though.
Prediction: West Ham 2-2 Tottenham -- Peter Thorne
TOTTENHAM: The last ever derby to be played at the Boleyn ground is sure to have some edge. Tottenham's away form is better than their home; they have only lost once all season o the road. Player management will be an issue with a hectic schedule ahead, but the prize at the end should keep Spurs' minds and bodies fresh. Spurs to narrowly win
Prediction: West Ham 1-2 Tottenham -- John Crace
LEICESTER: On paper Leicester are heavy favourites but the Foxes' 1-0 win vs. Norwich proved a struggle and the visitors don't let in too many goals. City must be at their best and contain Saido Berahino. If they defend well they should continue their record of never having lost to a side in the bottom half of the table.
Prediction: Leicester 2-0 West Brom -- Ben Jacobs
WEST BROM: After a controversial 3-2 defeat at The Hawthorns in November, West Brom will want to exact revenge against the league leaders. Saido Berahino scored a stunning winner against Crystal Palace and West Brom will need him in top form to get anything from the game.
Prediction: Leicester 2-1 West Brom -- Matthew Evans
ARSENAL: Quite how Arsene Wenger raises his troops for the game against Swansea after the disheartening loss to Man Utd is anybody's guess. The Gunners are in poor form but ought to have enough to take three points at home, even if Lukasz Fabianski is going to have one of those games against his former club.
Prediction: Arsenal 2-1 Swansea -- Andrew Mangan
SWANSEA: Against Arsenal, Swansea are likely to face a repeat of the near 90 minute onslaught they suffered at Tottenham on Sunday. At least there's a home fixture against Norwich to look forward to afterwards, making this game an exercise in preserving as much morale as possible ahead of the easier fixture.
Prediction: Arsenal 2-1 Swansea -- Max Hicks
MAN UNITED: When Manchester United enjoy a great result, it is often followed by a huge disappointment. Beating Arsenal, particularly with so many injuries, was a great result, but it counts for nothing if United fail to get a result against Watford. Can Marcus Rashford make it three games out of three where he scores a brace? With no other striking options, the supporters will be hoping so.
Prediction: Manchester United 3-1 Watford -- Scott Patterson
WATFORD: With unfortunate timing, Watford are heading to Old Trafford just as Manchester United have worked out how to score goals. Watford were poor against Bournemouth and a massive improvement is required, particularly in midfield. A return to form for Etienne Capoue would help.
Prediction: Manchester United 2-0 Watford -- Michael Moruzzi
NORWICH: Norwich were innovative and bold at Leicester but a late defeat was a depressingly familiar script in their Premier League survival battle. Chelsea appear rejuvenated under Guus Hiddink. The Canaries need to find a cutting edge or the Blues will inflict more pain on Alex Neil's side.
Prediction: Norwich 2-2 Chelsea -- Paddy Davitt
CHELSEA: Chelsea's unbeaten run in domestic competition under Guus Hiddink is starting to look impressive. Struggling Norwich look ill-equipped to deal with a resurgent Blues side that has fallen back in love with the game, and the Canaries relegation problems look set to intensify as Hiddink's men march onwards and upwards.
Prediction: Norwich 0-2 Chelsea -- Mark Worrall
ASTON VILLA: Some good news finally for Villa manager Remi Garde as he welcomes striker Jordan Ayew back after a three-match suspension. However, Everton arrive at Villa Park nicely rested after not playing for over a week, and with four victories from their last five games in all competitions it's easy to predict how this one will turn out. Another home defeat for Villa beckons..
Prediction: Aston Villa 1-3 Everton -- Kevin Hughes
EVERTON: FA Cup progress, warm weather training in Dubai, a new major shareholder, Tim Howard nearing the exit door... a lot has happened since Everton last played a Premier League game, losing 1-0 at home to West Brom. Three points are imperative against an increasingly desperate Aston Villa on Tuesday.
Prediction: Aston Villa 0-2 Everton -- Luke O'Farrell
BOURNEMOUTH: After ending a three-match losing streak with a 0-0 draw at Watford in their last game, Bournemouth need to find the net at home against south coast rivals Southampton. With Junior Stanislas likely to be out with injury, Max Gradel has a chance to claim a regular place.
Prediction: Bournemouth 1-0 Southampton -- Steve Menary
SOUTHAMPTON: Southampton are looking to bounce back from the end of their six-game unbeaten streak against a Bournemouth side they outclassed in the reverse fixture at the St Mary's Stadium. Eddie Howe's side have improved since then but will fear Charlie Austin, who they tried to sign last summer.
Prediction: Bournemouth 1-2 Southampton -- Alex Crook
STOKE: The visit of relegation-threatened Newcastle offers Stoke the realistic and tantalising prospect of a third successive victory. They will need to be more convincing than they were in the 2-1 win against Aston Villa, though, and Mame Diouf is arguably the man to add goals to a shot-shy front line.
Prediction: Stoke 2-0 Newcastle -- James Whittaker
NEWCASTLE UNITED: Results went in Newcastle's favour over the weekend and they could be out of the relegation zone before kicking a ball if things go their way again on Tuesday. United showed signs of improvement in a mid-season friendly against Lillestrom, but must now back that up on the big stage.
Prediction: Stoke 1-2 Newcastle -- Lee Ryder
SUNDERLAND: After needlessly losing to West Ham, Sunderland are under enormous pressure to beat Crystal Palace. Manager Sam Allardyce needs sharper finishing and with old boy Connor Wickham boosted by two Palace goals on Saturday, no schoolboy lapses of the sort that cost dearly at Upton Park.
Prediction: Sunderland 2-1 Crystal Palace -- Colin Randall
CRYSTAL PALACE: If the West Brom game was a must-not lose, Palace's trip to Sunderland on Tuesday night is a must-win. Anything other than all three points and Alan Pardew's men must admit they are in a relegation battle. The return of Yannick Bolasie is massive.
Prediction: Sunderland 0-1 Crystal Palace -- Jim Daly
