Watford vs Manchester United (Saturday 11.45pm AEDT)
The Red Devils are undefeated since being annihilated by Arsenal 3-0. The team is starting to play well together and they are creating more quality chances despite being held scoreless in two games throughout their recent stretch whilst they have conceded the least amount of goals in the league at just 8.
Meanwhile Watford have been competitive in the majority of their matches this season and have been able to upset a few teams along their way including West Ham at home two weeks ago. However, they won’t be able to match it with the Powerhouse that is Manchester United.
Newcastle United vs Leicester City (Sunday 2am AEDT)
The Foxes remarkable season has continued as they have strung together four wins in five games and are now sitting in third place on the ladder. They have played well as a team and created plenty of quality chances, however Jamie Vardy’s remarkable form has helped the side as he has scored in nine consecutive top-flight matches and can equal the all time record with a goal against Newcastle United this weekend.
Newcastle climbed out of the relegation zone for the first time this season but they are still having troubles offensively whilst their defence has been vulnerable in matches. The Foxes will be too strong for the Magpies despite being away from home.
Manchester City vs Liverpool (Sunday 4.30am AEDT)
City fans will be happy to hear that midfielder David Silva is likely to return to action this weekend, which will contribute greatly to the side being able to create quality chances against their opponents this weekend. Sergio Aguero is still likely a week away from being included in the line up but he is an outside chance of making his return. Prior to the International break City slipped up by having a goalless draw against the bottom placed Aston Villa, which forced them to give up important points against Arsenal.
Liverpool have the longest injury list in the Premier League however they could receive a massive boost with Daniel Sturridge set for an early which will contribute greatly to the team finding the back of the net. However, it won’t be enough for the injury-ravaged side as they will suffer yet another loss as Manchester City continue to push for the title.
Tottenham Hostpur vs West Ham (Monday 3am AEDT)
These two sides are sitting on equal competition points with Tottenham slightly ahead on goal differential. Neither side will want to lose this match and drop 3 points behind the other whilst falling possibly 6 points off the pace of the top four.
This season the Hammers have been the best away team in the league picking up four wins, a draw and one loss. The side has plenty of attacking weapons up front whilst their defence has been able to hold the top teams scoreless. They will need to be at their best as they look to add Tottenham to the long list of scalps this season, however the Spurs have only lost the one match all season and that was way back in the first week of the year. This match will be hard fought by both sides but the teams will split the points as it ends in a draw.
