Newcastle were roundly criticised for their defensive approach last time they played Chelsea and will likely set up in a similar manner at the Bridge on Saturday. With Spurs playing United the following day, it offers Maurizio Sarri’s men the opportunity to cut the gap to third place.

❓ Did you know: Newcastle manager, and former Chelsea boss, Rafa Benitez has only won one of his 14 visits to Stamford Bridge.

Both sides desperately need a win at the moment and the pair are struggling to recreate their form from the early part of the season. Everton and Bournemouth are separated by goal difference alone in the table and a win could see them move up to eighth.

❓ Did you know: This fixture two seasons ago was one of the highest scoring Premier League games ever, ending 6-3 to the Toffees. In fact, there have only been six matches in the division’s history that have produced more than nine goals.

⌛ Predictions:

Everton 1-1 Bournemouth

Man United: Paul Pogba

 

A few weeks ago this may have looked like a comfortable win for Spurs, as it was when the sides met at Old Trafford earlier in the season. However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s appointment has changed the mood at United and this game has been given added spice as the Norwegian comes up against the man many think will replace him next summer.

❓ Did you know: Should Solskjaer win on Sunday he will become the first United boss to ever win all of his first six games in charge

⌛ Predictions:

Tottenham 1-2 Man United

🕰️ When: 20:00 GMT

📅 Date: Monday, January, 14th

📜 Records:

⚽ Top scorer:

Man United: Jiminez 6 goals

👀 Players to watch:

Tottenham: Bernardo Silva

Man United: Matt Doherty

 

Man City will head into the game knowing they must win to keep pace with Liverpool at the top of the table. The Reds are in action on Saturday against Brighton and could re-establish their seven-point gap over City. Wolves have proved to be the bogey side for the league’s best teams and between the Premier League and FA Cup, Nuno Espirito Santo’s men have got a result against all the ‘top-six’ clubs.

❓ Did you know: Man City have won their last two games by a combined score of 16-0!

⌛ Predictions:

Man City 3-1 Wolves
