Premier League leaders Chelsea will have to wait until Sunday for their game against West Brom. They could have seen their lead at the top cut before the 12noon kick-off at Stamford Bridge.

The action will actually get underway with lunchtime game between Watford and Everton on Saturday. These are two sides that haven’t been in the best of form recently as the Hornets have lost three in four whereas the Toffees haven’t won in five.

Arsenal could move to the top of the table should they beat Stoke at the Emirates Stadium. It would come down to goal difference but there’s not much in this with this boosted by the thrashing of West Ham a week ago. However, the Potters have lost only twice in the last 10 and are up to 9th.

With Burnley back at Turf Moor they could do with all three points. The home form is likely to be key for the Clarets’ relegation battle with them welcoming former boss Eddie Howe’s AFC Bournemouth. The Cherries are sitting pretty in midtable.

Hull have another chance to climb out of the bottom three when they return to the KCOM Stadium. However, they’ll have to beat a Crystal Palace side looking for successive wins after ending a six game losing run. The 3-0 win against Southampton also eased the pressure on Palace boss Alan Pardew.

A relegation six pointer between Swansea and Sunderland takes place at the Liberty Stadium. The Swans have lost seven of the last nine games and desperately need the points against a Black Cats side that have won three of the last four having failed to win any of the opening 10!

Defending champions Leicester come up again a potential successor to their throne in the evening kick off on Saturday. Manchester City will head to the King Power Stadium confident of securing the points against Claudio Ranieri’s struggling Foxes.

The aforementioned Chelsea game will kick off the games on Sunday followed by two that start at 2:15pm – Manchester United play host to Tottenham in a big game at Old Trafford as Southampton look to maximise home advantage against Middlesbrough at the St Mary’s Stadium.

With a full midweek schedule to follow we’ll not see a Monday night game with Liverpool‘s meeting against West Ham the final fixture of this round. Jurgen Klopp will look for a response from his side after the 4-3 defeat to Bournemouth when facing Slaven Bilic’s struggling Hammers at Anfield.

It goes without saying the expectation; most definitely the hope at least, will be for a positive result. But will this happen? We’ll find out soon enough.

Ahead of the game we’re looking for your views on what way you think it will go, which requires you to vote in the latest poll in one of the options you have been given.

However, don’t just look also have a say. We don’t just want your vote, which you can do to the right, we also want some thoughts and views ahead of the game as well so share these below.
