Liverpool Vs Everton
Liverpool welcome Everton to Anfield for the first Merseyside Derby of the Season on Saturday lunchtime. The Reds suffered a surprising defeat at West Ham in Gameweek 5 and will look to bounce back immediately following two consecutive Premier League defeats. Everton come into this game having been defeated by Crystal Palace at Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon. The Toffees have only recorded one victory from five Premier League encounters this term. That record must improve if Everton are to challenge for a Top 4 berth as they did last year. Daniel Sturridge looks likely to miss this game through injury leaving Balotelli to lead the line. Score draw at Anfield.
Chelsea Vs Aston Villa
Chelsea finally saw their perfect start to the Premier League Season when they visited Manchester City on Sunday. Frank Lampard scored against his old Club to give 10-man City a share of the spoils at The Etihad. Jose Mourinho’s side sit 3 points clear at the summit and won’t want to slip up against Aston Villa as they did last season. The Villains have enjoyed a tremendous start to the Season and sit 3rd in the Standings heading into Gameweek 6. Paul Lambert has deservedly been rewarded with a new contract following Villa’s impressive start. Home win expected at Stamford Bridge.
Crystal Palace Vs Leicester
Crystal Palace produced a shock result in Gameweek 5 to leave Goodison Park with all 3 points. That was The Eagles first win of the Season and Palace fans will be hoping for more of the same when fellow Premier League newcomers Leicester City visit. The Foxes will be high on confidence following an incredible 5-3 win over Manchester United. Nigel Pearson has guided his side to two consecutive wins and has seen his side lose only one game this Season – Away at Chelsea. Palace are without a win at Selhurst Park this Season and I expect a bore draw.
Hull Vs Manchester City
Hull have failed to pick up a win following their opening day victory at QPR. The Tigers have drawn their last two Premier League matches by an identical 2-2 scoreline. Steve Bruce’s side will be defending their unbeaten record at home when The Champions visit The KC Stadium. Manchester City salvaged a point late on against Chelsea through Frank Lampard. Pablo Zabaleta will be eligible for this match as his suspension will be served in the Capital One Cup clash midweek. City are already 5 points adrift of Chelsea and will not wish to concede any further ground in their bid to retain the Premier League crown.

Manchester United Vs West Ham
Manchester United are struggling defensively despite having an embarrassment of riches at their disposal in the attacking third of the field. The Red Devils lost 5-3 at newly promoted Leicester in Gameweek 5 despite leading 3-1 in the Second Half. Louis Van Gaal has much to work on defensively before West Ham make the trip to Manchester. The Hammers picked up a huge three points when Liverpool visited Upton Park on Saturday evening. Some fans are still unhappy with Sam Allardyce’s management of the Club despite sitting ahead of Spurs, Liverpool and Manchester United in the Premier League Table. Home win expected at Old Trafford.
Southampton Vs QPR
Southampton have enjoyed a tremendous start to the Premier League season despite many pundits painting a picture of doom and gloom at St Marys. The Saints picked up their third consecutive victory by beating Swansea on the road in Gameweek 5 and sit 2nd in the Premier League heading into Gameweek 6. QPR have not enjoyed such a positive start but registered a draw against Stoke following their heavy defeat at Old Trafford. Harry Redknapp faces a big challenge to keep Rangers out of the Relegation Zone in May 2015. Home win expected.
Sunderland Vs Swansea
Sunderland have drawn four of their five Premier League games this term to leave them on the brink of the Relegation Zone. The Black Cats need to find the net with more regularity if they are to turn draws into victories. Swansea kicked off their Season in impressive fashion winning all of their first three fixtures only to slip up against Chelsea and Southampton in their most recent games. Garry Monk will want to get his side back to winning ways when they make the long trip to the North East. Score draw at The Stadium of Light.
Arsenal Vs Spurs
Saturday evening ends with a mouth watering North London Derby at The Emirates Stadium. Arsenal have had a solid start to the campaign including draws against Everton and Manchester City. The Gunners picked up a good win away at Aston Villa in Gameweek 5 with Ozil and Welbeck on the scoresheet. Spurs make the short trip to Arsenal hoping to leapfrog their hosts in the Premier League table with a win on the road. Spurs kicked off the Season well but have suffered a dip in form losing 2 of their last 3 Premiership matches. Adebayor will return to his old Club as unpopular as ever. Arsenal to get local bragging rights with a win at The Emirates.
West Brom Vs Burnley
West Bromwich Albion picked up their first win of the Season away at Tottenham in Gameweek 5. The Baggies broke their losing streak with a solitary strike from Morrison at White Hart Lane. Alan Irvine will be hoping to make it back-to-back wins when newly promoted Burnley visit. The Clarets have become masters of the bore draw – All 3 of their most recent Premier League fixtures have ended in a stalemate. Sean Dyche has a huge job on his hands if he is to keep Burnley in the Premier Division this year. Bore draw expected at The Hawthorns.
Stoke Vs Newcastle
Monday Night Football returns when Stoke host Newcastle United. Stoke City have endured a very uncharacteristic start to the Premier League Season. The Potters have lost two in a row at home despite being usually very solid at home and an away trip no Club relishes. Newcastle United have also endured a torrid start to the Season with Alan Pardew coming under pressure to deliver results. The Magpies fought back to secure a 2-2 draw against Hull in Gameweek 5 which may have given Pardew a stay of execution. I expect Stoke to get their act together on home soil and pick up their first Premier League victory at The Britannia.
