Champions Leicester will hope the weekend win against Manchester City isn’t a ‘false dawn.’ The Foxes head to AFC Bournemouth buoyed by that 4-2 win against the 12th placed side they would overtake with a win at Dean Court.

Yet again Arsenal have the early chance to strike! A fourth straight Premier League win would take the Gunners top for at least 24 hours. Everton’s miserable run of form has seen the Toffees win just once in the last 10 ahead of this Goodison Park meeting.

The other half of Merseyside aren’t having a great time of late either as Liverpool have taken just five points from the last four games ahead of this one at Middlesbrough. Boro are just three points above the drop zone themselves so will be keen on inflicting more misery of Jurgen Klopp’s side.

Chelsea head to rock bottom Sunderland seeking a 10th straight league win. Should the Blues manage this they’ll either return to the top of the table (if Arsenal win on Tuesday) or extend their lead.

A point and one place is between West Ham and the bottom three ahead of the visit from Burnley. The Clarets haven’t travelled too well this season but the home form has seen them to 13th.

Crystal Palace bid to extend the unbeaten run to three games when they come up against Manchester United at Selhurst Park – United of course beat Palace in last seasons FA Cup final.

After the weekend defeat at Leicester a return to the Etihad Stadium will see Manchester City look to get their faltering title challenge back on track and avoid a third straight defeat. However, Watford visit in high spirits after the win against Everton on Saturday.

Stoke held the lead at Arsenal for a while at the weekend before eventually losing 3-1. The Potters will welcome Southampton to the Bet365 Stadium with the Saints a place above them in the table in 10th.

Having suffered a blow to their title hopes at the weekend Tottenham go into the game with Hull at White Hart Lane 10 points adrift on leaders Chelsea. City on the other hand are second-bottom, albeit only a point from safety.

A four game unbeaten run was ended against Chelsea on Sunday so West Brom will seek to get one going. Albion will welcome Swansea to the Hawthorns with Bob Bradley seeking back-to-back wins – if that happened it probably would take the Swans out of the bottom three.

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.
