Norwich City vs Tottenham Hotspur (Wednesday 6.45am AEDT)
Since their disappointing loss to Leicester City in the Premier League the Spurs have gone on a four game winning streak in all competitions, including back-to-back victories in the Premier League where they scored a total of seven goals in the two matches. Their goal scoring form has been superb as they now have the third best attack in the league whilst they have leaked the least amount of goals.
Whilst the Budgies are on a three game losing streak in the league and they have conceded a whopping 11 goals across those three matches. They are sitting just one spot out of the relegation zone and will be desperate for a victory at home, however the Spurs are pushing for a Champions League spot and are just five points behind competition leaders Leicester and they will pick up the three points in this one.
Arsenal vs Southampton (Wednesday 6.45am AEDT)
The Gunner moved onto the top of the ladder as they entered the new year but have stumbled as of late picking up just two points out of a possible nine in their last three league matches. Their loss at home last week to Chelsea hurt their title hopes as they gave up their lead to Leicester whilst the sides behind them shortened the margin at the top.
Meanwhile Southampton has returned to form picking up three straight victories including a big scalp against Manchester United at Old Trafford. The wins are even more impressive as they kept clean sheets in all three of the matches. However, Arsenal is due for a victory and the class of the Gunners will shine above at home as they start February off with a win.
Manchester United vs Stoke City (Wednesday 7am AEDT)
The Red Devils troubles continued last week as they fell to Southampton at home. The side continues to lack control in the midfield and it showed in their latest match in the FA Cup. They were lucky to advance with a Wayne Rooney stunner and a couple of late goals. They need to solidify that area to allow the side to control the ball at a higher level and create more quality chances for Rooney and Anthony Martial.
After a strong stretch of impressive wins, Stoke suffered their biggest loss of the season last week against Leicester City, which brought them back down to earth. They will want to make amends for this and after already picking up victories against Manchester City and the Red Devils earlier in the season they will be full of confidence that they will be able to bounce back. We are seeing this being a close match as Manchester United coach Louis Van Gaal will be desperate to avoid another loss and the match will end in a draw.
Watford vs Chelsea (Thursday 6.45am AEDT)
The home side was able to earn their first victory in five matches last week with a 2-1 win against Newcastle United. Watford had lost four straight matches and scored only two goals across that stretch heading into the match against the Magpies but they were able to earn the much-needed three points. However, it gets a lot harder for the side as they take on a Chelsea side fresh off a victory against the Gunners last week. It was just the Blues second win in six matches but the side showed a lot of improvement on both ends of the field as they were creating quality chances whilst they defended brilliantly. Whilst there is little hope for Chelsea to reach the top four this season, they will be far too strong for Watford and they are at a great price to back them for the victory.
