|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at West Ham||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Crystal Palace have scored all in all but one of Alan Pardew’s games as manager
Expert Verdict: West Ham were denied a White Hart Lane win with the last kick of the game and Crystal Palace could ensure the Hammers endure another disappointing derby day. The Eagles are much more attack-minded under Alan Pardew and acquitted themselves well in defeats to Arsenal and Liverpool.
Recommendation: Crystal Palace
REFEREE: Mike Dean STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Newcastle||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Aston Villa scored their last away goal on December 2
Expert Verdict: Newcastle should have enough quality to see off Aston Villa, who have scored just four league goals on their travels. The Magpies, with only one defeat against bottom-half sides, have beaten Liverpool and Chelsea at home and face a Villa side that have blanked in their last five away fixtures.
REFEREE: Lee Mason STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Man Utd||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Both teams have scored in Man Utd’s last four games
Expert Verdict: The pressure is firmly on Gus Poyet as Sunderland now lie just three points off the relegation places and, while a trip to Old Trafford may not be as fearsome as it once was, only Chelsea have a better home record than Manchester United. However, the Red Devils rearguard remains dodgy and the Black Cats can get on the scoresheet.
Recommendation: Both teams to score
REFEREE: Roger East STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Stoke||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Hull have avoided defeat in seven of 13 away fixtures this term
Expert Verdict: Stoke’s 2-1 win at Aston Villa ended a run of three games without a victory and they’ve lost only once against Hull in seven Premier League meetings. However, the visitors have steadied the ship lately – they are unbeaten in three matches - including a draw at Man City and can grab a point at the Britannia.
REFEREE: Chris Foy STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at West Brom||Recent Form|
Key Stat: West Brom have lost just once under Tony Pulis
Expert Verdict: Despite dominating for much of their defeat to Liverpool, Southampton failed to create a chance of note and they could pay for that lack of cutting edge against resurgent West Brom. Tony Pulis has brought some much-needed steel to the Baggies since entering the dugout and they should prove no pushovers.
Recommendation: West Brom
REFEREE: Phil Dowd STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Burnley||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Burnley have won only three home league games
Expert Verdict: Burnley have won just once in their last six games but they were 2-0 up against West Brom before drawing and secured a point at Chelsea last time out, so the Clarets can’t be written off entirely. Swansea beat Manchester United last weekend but have averaged less than a goal a game away this season.
