|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Aston Villa||Recent Form|
Key Stat: West Brom have drawn four of their last five away games
Expert Verdict: Tim Sherwood’s Aston Villa are the lowest scorers in the top flight with a pathetic home haul of nine goals while West Brom have managed only eight on the road so clearly the draw is a big runner. That would suit West Brom more than Villa, but it’s questionable whether the hosts have the confidence to carve out a win.

|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Southampton||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Southampton have won five of the last six meetings
Expert Verdict: Southampton have won just one of their last six matches, but they look a home banker to get back to winning ways against Crystal Palace. Saints haven’t had the rub of the green of late but have still been performing at a pretty decent level and, at the prices, they look a cracking bet.
REFEREE: Martin Atkinson STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Hull||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Sunderland have drawn six away games this season
Expert Verdict: Both teams are in trouble, but Hull will take solace from that fact they’ve won their last three league meetings with Sunderland, conceding just one goal in the process. That said, Gus Poyet’s side have avoided defeat in eight of 13 away trips this season, and this is bound to be another tight game.
REFEREE: Mike Dean STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Newcastle||Recent Form|
Key Stat: There hasn’t been more than a one-goal winning margin in Newcastle’s last 12 home games
Expert Verdict: Louis van Gaal’s Manchester United remain an enigma. They look defensively vulnerable, lack penetration up front and, at times, look totally disjointed in midfield. However, they keep on nicking victories, compiling a W11, D4, L2 record in their last 17 league outings and should do just enough to beat Newcastle.
Recommendation: Man Utd to win 1-0
REFEREE: Anthony Taylor STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at West Ham||Recent Form|
Key Stat: West Ham have won two of their last ten league games
Expert Verdict: With one trophy safely in the bag, League Cup winners Chelsea now have one hand on the league title after Man City’s Anfield mishap on Sunday. They should strengthen their grip at Upton Park against a West Ham side who are going backwards after their strong start to the season. A comfortable away win beckons.
Recommendation: Chelsea to win 2-0
REFEREE: Andre Marriner STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Man City||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Man City have kept just one clean sheet in 13 matches
Expert Verdict: Manchester City’s season is on the verge of collapse and they are starting to look flaky. Barcelona put City to the sword in the Champions League and Liverpool put a massive dent in their league hopes on Sunday. Leicester have blanked just twice in their last 12 outings and they could give the Citizens a scare.
Recommendation: Both teams to score
