After a thrillingly tantalising high-scoring game-week, let us hope for more of the same as we enter the beginning of the latter stages of the season.
Aston Villa v Liverpool
The Villans are really struggling for goals this season and still remain the lowest scorers in the whole of England, although they did pick up a win at Anfield in the reverse fixture. Liverpool meanwhile seem to have got their act together and should win.
STAR MAN – Lazar MARKOVIC
This young talent, who was one of Brendan Rodgers’ summer signings, has been a recent breath of fresh air in the Liverpool team.
Burnley v Crystal Palace
This is a massive fixture down at the bottom end of the table with both these sides level on points, and both these sides coming off the back of decent wins. It is a tough one to call so they will probably share the spoils.
STAR MAN – Danny INGS
The young Englishman, who was scoring for fun in the Championship last season, has been fantastic up front recently.
Leicester City v Stoke City
Despite sitting at the bottom of the table, the Foxes have picked up seven points out of a possible nine and will look to complete the league double over Stoke after winning at the Britannia earlier on in the season.
STAR MAN – Paul KONCHESKY
The former England international scored a great goal and complimented it with a clean sheet, and will look to add to it.
QPR v Manchester United
It is looking rather glum for Redknapp’s Rangers and their impressive home record has dried up in recent game-weeks, however after United slumped to a shock home defeat, this may be an opportunity to capitalise for QPR.
STAR MAN – Charlie AUSTIN
Austin has been fantastic when playing at home and will be sure to bury any penalty given for his team.
Tottenham v Sunderland
You just do not know which Tottenham side is going to turn up, but surely if they were able to put five past Chelsea then they should be able to easily claim a victory over a Sunderland side whose draws have turned to losses.
STAR MAN – Harry KANE
Young English strikers have been a reoccurring theme this season and Kane has been brilliant to watch so far.
Swansea v Chelsea
Chelsea’s away record has been woeful of late by their standards but they will be feeling confident as they go into this game, as Swansea’s impressive start to the season seems to have fallen away whilst they deal with the departure of Wilfried Bony.
STAR MAN – Emboaba OSCAR
The Brazilian midfield maestro was the main man in their solid win against Newcastle and will look to continue this fine form.
Newcastle v Southampton
The hunt for a manager continues at Tyneside and it will probably have to be dealt with sooner rather than later as performances on the pitch have been slipping for Newcastle, whereas Southampton have been the surprise of the season.
STAR MAN – Ryan BERTRAND
Bertrand should hopefully pick up the clean sheet points here, and Koeman continues to play him in midfield, increasing his goal-scoring opportunity.
West Ham v Hull City
The Hammers’ exceptional run has been cut short recently. However, they remain unbeaten for a couple of games and should easily take apart Hull City who have found their second season in the Premier League difficult to say the least.
STAR MAN – Stewart DOWNING
Downing has been the creative mastermind in the West Ham midfield and this guy loves an assist this season.
Manchester City v Arsenal
The fixture of the game-week, this will be a fantastic clash between two of the top five sides in the Barclays Premier League, and although the champions put six past the Gunners last season, Wenger’s men may have other ideas.
STAR MAN – Alexis SANCHEZ
This guy is simply insane, and he will perform come rain or shine, with Alexis already being suggested for player of the year.
Everton v West Brom
Everton have stopped their extremely disappointing run with two draws and will hope to seal a victory, but they may have his work cut out with Pulis’ new side. The Toffees should have too much in the Monday Night Football fixture though.
STAR MAN – Leighton BAINES
Baines is now the leading defender for assists in Premier League history, and will fancy his clean sheet chances as well as scoring penalties.
