Arsenal Vs Leicester
Arsenal were on the wrong end of a 2-1 scoreline in the North London Derby on Saturday. The Gunners took an early lead but couldn’t keep Harry Kane quiet and saw Spurs leapfrog them in the Premier League table. Leicester City lost their third game in a row when Crystal Palace visited The King Power Stadium and defeated their hosts 1-0. The Foxes remain rock bottom of the table and will face an uphill struggle to get anything from their Tuesday night fixture. Home win expected at The Emirates.
Hull Vs Aston Villa
Hull were heading for a memorable win at The Etihad Stadium before James Milner grabbed a late equaliser to rescue a point for the Champions. The Tigers can still take great pride from picking up a point at City to end their three match losing streak. Aston Villa put in a good shift against Chelsea but ended up losing the game. The Villains were finally able to break their unwelcome record of going 11 hours without scoring a goal when Okore headed in a cross. Score draw expected at The KC Stadium.
Sunderland Vs QPR
Sunderland picked up a point from their trip to South Wales in Gameweek 24. The Black Cats saw Jermain Defoe fire in his second goal in two games and will hope the forward man can fire them even further from the Relegation Zone. QPR began life without Harry Redknapp by losing at home against Southampton. Rangers have yet to pick up a single point away from Loftus Road this Season while Sunderland saw off Burnley 2-0 in their previous encounter at The Stadium of Light. Defoe to score in a home win.
Liverpool Vs Spurs
The pick of the Gameweek 25 fixtures takes place at Anfield where Liverpool host Tottenham Hotspur. The Reds faced Everton in a Derby stalemate at Goodison which saw them pick up their 4th consecutive clean sheet. Brendan Rodgers’ side have now earned 10 points from a possible 12 in their last Premier League matches. Spurs will be brimming with confidence after their 2-1 win over arch-rivals Arsenal on Saturday. Harry Kane struck twice at White Hart Lane and Liverpool will need to pay special attention to the forward if they are to maintain another clean sheet. Home win expected at Anfield.
Chelsea Vs Everton
Chelsea picked up a big win in Gameweek 24 when they visited Aston Villa. The Blues were further boosted when Manchester City unexpectedly dropped points against Hull. Costa remains suspended for the Everton clash while Fabregas remains doubtful due to injury. Everton were unable to find the net when they faced Liverpool in the Merseyside Derby on Saturday. The Toffees have lost five of their last six games on the road and will find the going tough at Stamford Bridge. Home win expected.
Manchester United Vs Burnley
Manchester United were minutes away from a defeat at West Ham before Daley Blind popped up with a late equaliser. The Red Devils saw their cushion over Tottenham reduced to just a single point following Spurs North London Derby win. Burnley seemed to be cruising at 2-0 up against West Brom. The Clarets went on to draw 2-2 after a spirited fightback from West Brom. Burnley sit just one point clear of the Relegation Zone and have an uphill task with United winning five of their last six at Old Trafford.
Southampton Vs West Ham
Southampton bounced back from their shocked defeat against Swansea to record a 1-0 win over QPR on Saturday. That win saw Southampton consolidate their place in the Top 4 after 24 matches. The Saints will remain without suspended Ryan Bertrand when West Ham visit the South Coast. West Ham were on the verge of a great win over Mancester United before conceding a late equaliser on Sunday. The Hammers away form has been poor of late with no wins from their last four road fixtures. Home win expected at St Marys.
Stoke Vs Manchester City
Stoke rescued a late draw when they faced a tough trip to Newcastle in Gameweek 24. The Potters now face the Champions hoping to maintain their good form at home which has seen them win two of their last three outings at The Britannia. Manchester City were on the verge of an unlikely defeat when Hull visited The Etihad in Gameweek 24. James Milner rescued a point with a late freekick but City could be 10 points behind Chelsea by the time this clash kicks off. All square at The Britannia.
Crystal Palace Vs Newcastle
Crystal Palace have been terrific since Alan Pardew took over, losing just a single Premier League game during Pardew’s tenure. The Eagles picked up an excellent win when they visited Leicester City in Gameweek 24 leaving them 6 points clear of the Relegation Zone. Pardew welcomes his former employers to Selhurst park hoping to show Newcastle fans what they are now missing following his departure. The Magpies were minutes away from picking up three points before Peter Crouch levelled for Stoke in Gameweek 24. Newcastle picked up a 3-0 win in their last away fixture and Palace will have their work cut out here. Home win expected.
West Brom Vs Swansea
West Brom visited Burnley in Gameweek 24 and despite falling 2-0 down came back to grab a share of the spoils with the final score 2-2. The Baggies are deep in the Relegation dog fight and need to pick up points at home if they are to dig themselves out of trouble. Swansea picked up a 1-1 draw against Sunderland on Saturday and sit in the top half of the Premier League table heading into Gameweek 25. The Swans have only lost one of their last four matches on the road and will pose a tough test for West Brom. Away win expected at The Hawthorns.
