Tottenham and Arsenal north London derby the pick of Prem weekend
There's a huge match at White Hart Lane this Saturday as Tottenham host Arsenal. Both clubs will be hoping to bounce back following defeats in midweek, while leaders Leicester take on Watford in Saturday's late kickoff.
At the bottom, there's two big clashes as Newcastle host Bournemouth and Swansea face Norwich.
Predict each match's outcome in our polls ...
TOTTENHAM: Tottenham may have lost at West Ham on Wednesday, but they will be a different proposition in front of their own fans. Spurs have won three of the four north London derbies that have taken place at White Hart Lane in the Premier League since 2011 -- all by a 2-1 scoreline. Meanwhile, Arsenal have lost their past three games and are missing two key players in Petr Cech and Laurent Koscielny.
Prediction: Tottenham 1-0 Arsenal -- Ben Pearce
ARSENAL: It might seem like blasphemy to bet against my own club here, but I just can't see Arsenal finding a way to get anything from this game. The Gunners are listless at the moment, and Spurs will see this as a real chance to ignite their title challenge.
Prediction: Tottenham 2-1 Arsenal -- James McNicholas
MAN CITY: With time ticking away, will the cold shower at Anfield on Wednesday wake up City's slumbering squad, as Villa arrive in Manchester in free fall toward the second tier? City, in possession of the League Cup, must now react to save their flagging league season from abject disappointment and potential embarrassment.
Prediction: Manchester City 3-0 Aston Villa -- Simon Curtis
ASTON VILLA: Villa have conceded 11 goals in their past three league games and there's unlikely to be much respite on Saturday. The visitors have lost on their past eight Premier League visits here, and after City's midweek defeat by Liverpool, Manuel Pellegrini's team will be determined to hit back swiftly with a victory. This could be a long and very difficult afternoon for Remi Garde and his struggling players.
Prediction: Manchester City 4-0 Aston Villa -- Kevin Hughes
WATFORD: The midweek defeat to Manchester United was one of Watford's most frustrating results of the season, given the chances missed. Odion Ighalo's dip in form is under more scrutiny, but he is still finding and creating chances and the goals will return. Leicester are under huge pressure to win, but Watford can cause an upset.
Prediction: Watford 2-1 Leicester -- Michael Moruzzi
LEICESTER: The leaders played well enough in the 2-2 draw against West Brom to suggest they can come away with something at Watford. Even draws from here on in should secure Champions League football and if City can extend their lead at the top, they will be genuine title favourites.
Prediction: Watford 2-3 Leicester -- Ben Jacobs
WEST BROM: The Baggies are unbeaten in three games and will look to continue that run against another of the league's form sides, Manchester United. Skipper Darren Fletcher will need to be at his inspirational best against his former club at the Hawthorns, especially with regular midfield partner Claudio Yacob suspended.
Prediction: West Brom 2-1 Manchester United -- Matthew Evans
MAN UNITED: This is United's sixth game in 18 days. That would be tough on any squad, let alone one that's had so little rotation because of the huge injury list. Still, there's confidence in the players that are available, with lots of them fighting to keep their place when others return.
Prediction: West Brom 1-2 Manchester United -- Scott Patterson
CRYSTAL PALACE: If Palace can play like they have in the second half of their past two games from the start against Liverpool on Sunday, they have an excellent chance of finding that elusive first win of 2016, especially now that Yannick Bolasie is back.
Prediction: Crystal Palace 2-1 Liverpool -- Jim Daly
LIVERPOOL: The Reds put their cup final defeat behind them with an impressive 3-0 win against Manchester City in midweek, a result that has provided a faint glimmer of hope that Champions League qualification might yet be possible. To keep those hopes alive they must beat struggling Crystal Palace, a team they have had all sorts of problems with in recent years.
Prediction: Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool -- Dave Usher
CHELSEA: Guus Hiddink's men might have only scraped past Norwich in midweek but there now seems to be an inner steel that was conspicuously absent earlier in the season. They are building momentum nicely, if belatedly. Stoke have had a mini-revival of their own with back-to-back wins stemming the flow of four consecutive defeats and the Blues will need to neutralise the threat of the in-form Marko Arnautovic.
Prediction: Chelsea 2-0 Stoke -- Phil Lythell
STOKE: Stoke make the difficult trip to Stamford Bridge on Saturday to take on a resurgent Chelsea side who currently sit three places below them in the league. Playing on the counter-attack will suit the Potters, who will look to Xherdan Shaqiri and Arnautovic to provide inspiration in the final third.
Prediction: Chelsea 1-1 Stoke -- James Whittaker
EVERTON: Roberto Martinez's side are unbeaten in 15 league games against West Ham and aim to extend that to 16 on Saturday. The home side must build on recent positives and begin improving home form showing four wins in the past 16 Premier League games at Goodison Park.
Prediction: Everton 2-1 West Ham -- Luke O'Farrell
WEST HAM: Slaven Bilic returns to the club he once represented, looking to break another Hammers hoodoo. The Irons seldom do well at Goodison Park and Wednesday's win against Spurs may leave them a bit short of energy. Everton are in form and may sneak this one.
Prediction: Everton 2-0 West Ham -- Peter Thorne
NEWCASTLE UNITED: Newcastle blew their chance of getting out of the bottom three at Stoke in midweek but have another opportunity to do so at home to Bournemouth. Although, they will need results to go their way and a much improved display in the final third to earn three points.
Prediction: Newcastle 2-0 Bournemouth -- Lee Ryder
BOURNEMOUTH: Eddie Howe's team will not lack motivation after totally outplaying Newcastle at home in November, only to lose 1-0. Bournemouth are edging ever closer to survival after their first win in five games in the derby with Southampton on Tuesday. Benik Afobe found the net then and will want more after a lean spell.
Prediction: Newcastle 0-1 Bournemouth -- Steve Menary
SOUTHAMPTON: Saints notched their biggest-ever Premier League win by thrashing Sunderland 8-0 in this fixture last season but manager Ronald Koeman is expecting a much tougher match against a side fighting for their top flight status. Southampton are looking to get their European bid back on track after successive defeats to Chelsea and Bournemouth.
Prediction: Southampton 2-0 Sunderland -- Alex Crook
SUNDERLAND: Fabio Borini's match-saving pile driver in Sunderland's 2-2 draw at home to Crystal Palace deserves the reward of a start in another crucial game, at Southampton. A win seems unlikely, but defeat, even somewhat narrower than last season's 8-0 humiliation, would severely damage survival hopes.
Prediction: Southampton 1-1 Sunderland -- Colin Randall
SWANSEA: An unexpected road win at Arsenal with an under-strength starting XI will have given Swansea a huge confidence boost ahead of Saturday's relegation six-pointer against Norwich. A Swansea win will put a nine-point gap between the clubs and would go a long way toward easing relegation fears,
Prediction: Swansea 3-0 Norwich -- Max Hicks
NORWICH: Alex Neil labelled Norwich City's trip to Swansea City a must-win even before the Welsh club's 2-1 midweek success at Arsenal moved them six points clear of the Canaries. This really feels like a defining 90 minutes in Norwich's survival bid.
Prediction: Swansea 1-1 Norwich -- Paddy Davitt
