Spurs Vs Sunderland
Tottenham Hotspur missed a great opportunity to cement their place in the Top 4 but were beaten by a late Robert Huth strike. Spurs will be keen to bounce back immediately and will fancy their chances of seeing off a Sunderland side currently occupying 18th place in the Premier League table. Former Tottenham player Jermain Defoe bagged a hat-trick midweek and his goals alone could be enough to keep Sunderland in the top Division. The Black Cats have picked up consecutive wins scoring seven goals in the process and the threat they pose should not be taken lightly. Narrow home win expected at White Hart Lane.
Bournemouth Vs Norwich
Bournemouth fans will be nervously looking over their shoulders as they edge towards the Relegation Zone. The Cherries are without a win in four matches and sit just three points ahead of Sunderland in 18th place. Bournemouth have been short of goals lately but must become more potent infront of goal if they are to avoid a Relegation scrap. Norwich were unable to make it three wins in a row when they visited Stoke on Wednesday evening. Neither side will want to lose this game and give a Relegation rival a boost. Bore draw expected at Dean Court.
Chelsea Vs Everton
Chelsea seemed to be heading for a hard fought 2-1 win over West Brom before conceding late to end up with a share of the spoils. Chelsea seem to be performing better under Guus Hiddink and are unbeaten in five Premier League matches. Everton have been stuggling to pick up points lately with just a single victory in their last six Premier League outings. The Toffees sit 4 points ahead of their hosts heading into this game and will fancy their chances of causing an upset in West London. Eden Hazard is doubtful due to injury while Lukaku will have much to prove when facing his former Club. Home win expected at Stamford Bridge.
Manchester City Vs Crystal Palace
Manchester City settled for a share of the spoils when they hosted Everton on Wednesday evening. The Sky Blues felt they deserved a late penalty which would have given them the chance to win it. City have been in good form at home and will be eager to get back to winning ways as soon as possible to keep the pressure on Arsenal and Leicester. Crystal Palace travel North hoping to improve their recent form which has seen them go four matches without getting a win or scoring a single goal. Tough assignment for Palace here. Home win expected at The Etihad.
Newcastle Vs West Ham
Newcastle United hosted the most entertaining fixture of Gameweek 21 and were rewarded with a point following a late Dummett strike. The Magpies will take great encouragement from that result and will hope they can drag themselves out of the Relegation Zone this weekend. West Ham United picked up an impressive win at Bournemouth midweek – Their third consecutive Premier League victory. The Hammers will be full of confidence heading North and seem to be scoring for fun lately. Away win expected at St James’ Park – Back a West Ham victory here.
Southampton Vs West Brom
Southampton made it two home wins in a row when they saw off Watford 2-0 in Gameweek 21. The Saints will be confident they can make it three on the trot when they host West Brom on Saturday. The Baggies are without a win in their last five matches away from home but did pick up an impressive point when they turned in a disciplined performance at Chelsea on Wednesday evening. The Saints will be keen to climb back into the top half of the table and a home victory on Saturday looks likely. Home win expected at St Marys.
Aston Villa Vs Leicester
Aston Villa picked up a much needed win when they hosted Crystal Palace on Tuesday evening. The Villains need to string a run of results together if they are to avoid playing Championship football next Season. Leicester City had hit a difficult run of form before they struck late to give them three points when they visited Tottenham in Gameweek 21. That victory saw The Foxes move level on points with League leaders Arsenal heading into Gameweek 22. Jamie Vardy is still battling injury but is likely to feature on Saturday evening. Away win expected at Villa Park.
Liverpool Vs Manchester United
Super Sunday kicks off with an intriguing clash between old foes Liverpool and Manchester United at Anfield. Liverpool scored late on to ensure they were not left empty handed following the visit of Arsenal on Wednesday evening. Jurgen Klopp’s side could move level on points with Manchester United with a victory in this fixture. The Red Devils thought they had 3 points sewn up before a late Dummett strike saw Newcastle snatch a late point. Liverpool have been in good form at home while United have struggled on the road in recent weeks. Wayne Rooney’s return to form could not be better timed for Van Gaal who is under pressure. Home win expected at Anfield.
Stoke Vs Arsenal
Stoke City host Arsenal on Super Sunday looking to make it three consecutive home wins in the Premier League. The Potters are in good form right now with three wins from their last four leaving them 7th in the Premiership. Arsenal are top of the Premier League and have a great chance of winning the League with other Clubs around them stumbling. The Gunners have been conceding goals away from home lately and will need to tighten up defensively if they are to pick up three points on Sunday. Sanchez and Cazorla remain sidelined for Wenger’s side through injury. All square at The Britannia.
Swansea Vs Watford
Swansea City lost a relegation six pointer against Sunderland midweek and sit just one point clear of the Relegation Zone heading into Gameweek 22. The Swans need to bounce back immediately if they are to avoid dropping into the bottom three. Watford are surpassing expectations this Season but have struggled in recent weeks against top class opposition in Chelsea, Spurs, City and Southampton. The Hornets sit in the Top 10 heading into the Gameweek and would love to retain their place in the top half of the Premier League table. Ighalo is without a goal in two outings and Swansea will need to keep tabs on the Watford striker. Away win expected at The Liberty Stadium.
