|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at West Brom||Recent Form|
Key Stat: There have been 20 goals in West Brom’s six home games
Expert Verdict: Only Goodison Park has seen more goals than The Hawthorns this season and with Arsenal’s fragile backline in town, goals look assured once again. Defensive lapses have undermined the Gunners this season and while their attack keeps on delivering, West Brom can expose the cracks at the back.
Recommendation: Both teams to score
REFEREE: Chris Foy STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Sunderland||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Chelsea have scored 17 of their 30 goals after the break
Expert Verdict: Sunderland beat Chelsea in the League Cup last season and gave them a scare in both league meetings, winning at the Bridge and losing 4-3 at home. It’s hard to see the Black Cats ending Chelsea's unbeaten record this campaign, but they might be able to keep it tight before the interval.
Recommendation: Draw-Chelsea double result
REFEREE: Kevin Friend STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Liverpool||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Liverpool have scored six home league goals this season
Expert Verdict: Stoke’s younger fans will have never seen their side score a league goal at Anfield – the visitors haven’t done so since 1983 – and they may have to wait a bit longer yet. Even though the Reds have won just two of six home league games, they should just edge this one and bounce back from Wednesday's 2-2 draw with Ludogorets.
Recommendation: Liverpool to win 1-0
REFEREE: Craig Pawson STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at QPR||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Leicester have lost to nil in five of their six Premier League away games this term
Expert Verdict: Leicester’s bore draw with Sunderland ended a four-game losing sequence but it’s now over two months since the Foxes last won. While QPR have also found life difficult back among the elite, all eight of their points won have been secured at Loftus Road, and they can win this big battle at the bottom.
REFEREE: Roger East STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at West Ham||Recent Form|
Key Stat: West Ham have scored in ten of their last 11 league games
Expert Verdict: West Ham have taken ten points from their last four home matches, beating Manchester City, Liverpool and QPR, and they can end Newcastle’s resurgence. The Magpies have won their last five league games but they may struggle to contain a confident and pacy Hammers attack that looks full of goals.
Recommendation: West Ham
REFEREE: Mike Dean STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Man Utd||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Hull haven’t won at Old Trafford since 1952
Expert Verdict: Manchester United’s injury problems show little sign of easing, especially at the back, but they should have too much firepower for Hull. Tigers manager Steve Bruce has never beaten his old club in 20 attempts and, although his side may find a way through United’s shaky defence, his dismal record looks set to continue.
Recommendation: Man Utd to win 3-1
