The Premier League bandwagon rolls on this weekend with the 14th round of fixtures set to take place from Saturday to Monday.
With many fans expected to check out the betting, games and offers with Paddy Power, we take a look at what’s in store in the pre-Christmas matches.
Southampton vs Manchester City
Southampton have defied expectations this season to spark talk that they could force themselves into the reckoning to qualify for Europe.
By contrast, City are yet to fully hit their stride in the Premier League and may find it difficult to pick up more than one point at St Mary’s.
Crystal Palace vs Liverpool
The reigning champions are once again in the title mix despite struggling with an ever-increasing list of injuries.
Despite this, Jurgen Klopp’s side are chasing their seventh successive league victory over Palace and should have enough about them to get the job done.
Everton vs Arsenal
Everton triumphed 2-0 at Leicester City in midweek and they are strongly fancied to come out on top against Arsenal.
The Gunners continue to struggle for form and currently look more like relegation candidates than a team capable of challenging for honours.
Newcastle United vs Fulham
Newcastle were demolished 5-2 at Leeds United on Wednesday and they will be eager to bounce back this weekend.
Steve Bruce’s side will view the visit of Fulham as a winnable opportunity, and it would be a surprise if they slipped up in this one.
Tottenham Hotspur vs Leicester City
Both these teams are firmly in the title mix and this game could prove to be hugely important in the final reckoning.
Spurs have looked much-improved under Jose Mourinho and they are narrowly fancied to secure a hard-fought victory over the Foxes.
Manchester United vs Leeds United
The Red Devils have been inconsistent this season, yet still find themselves on the fringes of the top four.
With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side having a habit of making things hard for themselves, it may be worth taking advantage of the in-play markets to secure extra value.
West Bromwich Albion vs Aston Villa
Villa have been performing well this season and will be confident of collecting another three points at The Hawthorns.
The Baggies are embroiled in a battle against relegation, but the appointment of Sam Allardyce as manager could spark a revival in their fortunes.
Brighton & Hove Albion vs Sheffield United
The Blades are stranded at the bottom of the standings but will see their trip to Brighton as a chance to get some points on the board.
The home team are fairly inconsistent and this looks a good opportunity for Chris Wilder’s side to pick up a positive result.
Chelsea vs West Ham United
This could be an entertaining affair between two teams who are amongst the division’s highest scorers after a third of the campaign.
Chelsea are favourites to win the game, but the Hammers have been improving under David Moyes and could prove to be troublesome.
Burnley vs Wolverhampton Wanderers
The clash between Burnley and Wolves is unlikely to be pretty, with both teams employing dour defensive styles.
Their two league meetings last season each finished 1-1 and a similar outcome is expected on this occasion.
