Chelsea v Leicester: 2-1 (Paddy Power odds: 7/1)

I just hope this game is nothing like the Chelsea v Arsenal FA Cup game on Wednesday night! I was nearly falling asleep watching it. Though I do think Chelsea will edge this one. Leicester have had some decent results recently, against the likes of Huddersfield and they made a good attempt at Liverpool.

Crystal Palace v Burnley: 1-1 (Paddy Power odds: 11/2)

Palace have got some injury issues, and we all know that Burnley won’t make it easy for anyone to win, even away from home. It’ll be a tough game this, and 1-1 will be a fair score line to reflect that.

Huddersfield v West Ham: 2-1 (Paddy Power odds: 5/1)

This game is massive. It might not look it, because it’s not Man City or one of the top four, but I believe if Huddersfield win this they will stay up. That being said, West Ham won’t make it easy. I’ll be at the game anyway, watching Tom, so maybe I can be a good luck charm!

Newcastle v Swansea: 2-0 (Paddy Power odds: 7/1)

You’ve got to be fancying at home against Swansea. They head into the game off the back of two wins – Luton in the FA Cup and Stoke in the league – and they’ll be up for making that three this weekend. 

Watford v Southampton: 2-0 (Paddy Power odds: 11/1)

I’m going to go with Watford 2-0 here. Southampton desperately need to look at getting themselves a striker. With Charlie Austin out, I just can’t see where the goals are going to come from, so I reckon Watford will make light work of this one.

West Brom v Brighton: 1-0 (Paddy Power odds: 9/2)

It’s funny isn’t it – with what’s going on at the top of the table, these games have actually become some of the most interesting ones. The importance of them to the clubs is massive and this will be a hard fought game, especially considering both teams don’t score goals. West Brom can just edge it though.

Tottenham v Everton: 2-0 (Paddy Power odds: 9/2)

You’d like to think that Tottenham, at home, in decent form, will win this one easily. Everton are obviously still without a clear goalscorer other than Wayne Rooney, whereas Spurs have plenty of players that can find the net. Harry Kane is just fantastic, too, so there’s always that threat.

Bournemouth v Arsenal: 1-3 (Paddy Power odds: 10/1)

When these two met last January, the game that finished 3-3, it was a total buzz. So I’d love to see a repeat of that this weekend and give us all a bit of excitement. Based on recent performances, though, you’d have to go with a win for Arsene Wenger.

Liverpool v Man City: 2-1 (Paddy Power odds: 10/1)

People have been raising their eyebrows at me when I’ve been telling them I think Liverpool will win this one! But honestly, I do. They can finally upset Man City – I hope. Otherwise, I’d say the title really is over.

Man United v Stoke: 3-0 (Paddy Power odds: 13/2)

Yes, Man United have made some foolish mistakes recently and made simple games look difficult, but this one has three points written all over it. They’ve been in Dubai, so hopefully they’ll come back refreshed and ready for action.
