Newcastle v Liverpool: A mouthwatering game. Newcastle are beginning a new era against a Liverpool who are starting to gel under Roy Hodgson. I think this will be a draw.

EVERTON V WIGAN – Everton are in a terrible run of form with no victories in six League games. That sequence  cannot go on and David Moyes’ side most take advantage of Wigan’s poor away record.

TOTTENHAM V CHELSEA. A cracking game in store and even though Chelsea have been struggling I fancy them to get a point at the Lane.

Fulham v Sunderland – Fulham have been performing with far more credit than results show. Desperately need a win and should get it against a Sunderland team that don’t always convince on the road.

STOKE V BLACKPOOL: Tony Pulis’ side are playing with real confidence after a dodgy start and while Blackpool have exceeded all realistic expectations, this is where it will start to get really hard for them. Three more points for Stoke.

Aston Villa v West Brom – This is a big game for Gerard Houllier especially after losing against Birmingham in the Carling Cup recently. Villa need to bounce back after their defeat at Liverpool – and they should just have the edge.

West Ham v Man City: West Ham are getting stronger but not sure if it will be enough to deal with Man City

MANCHESTER UNITED V ARSENAL: Arsenal have lost four and drawn one of their five matches against Manchester United, but their counter-attacking game could prevail this time.
