Last match day had Palace continuing their form of late, taking Leicester City by surprise and taking 3 points with 3 goal. Manchester City blew away Tottenham in a match that was touted as maybe the game were City gains their first loss. It was far from.

Liverpool vs Arsenal

Arsenal FC

This weekend, we have another big battle of two top 6 teams with Liverpool (9-7-2) visiting Arsenal (10-3-5). Current form would favour Liverpool (WWDDW) rather than the home team Arsenal (WLDDW). Last matchday had Liverpool blowing away Bournemouth 4-0 while Arsenal beat Newcastle 1-0.

FIFA prediction

Liverpool 0 – Arsenal 0

What to watch for

  • Giroud will miss the match after a hamstring injury against Bournemouth
  • Salah has been dominant this year and scoring goals with ease
  • Ozil has seen a resurgence in form as late and may be a game changer
  • Mane has scored in the last three premier league matches against Arsenal

Tottenham vs Burnley

In what is regarded as a bit of a surprise, 6th place Burnley (9-5-4) hosts 7th place Tottenham (9-4-5). The form of the two would favour Burnley (WLWWD) by a edge over Tottenham (LDWWL). Last matchday had Burnley drawing against Brighton in a scoreless affair. Tottenham’s last match was a 4-1 loss to Manchester City.

FIFA Prediction

Tottenham 1 – Burnley 2

What to watch for

  • Burnley are tied with Manchester City and Manchester United for the best defensive record in the league with 12 goals against
  • Tottenham look to rebound after they were routed by Manchester City last match
  • Stephen Ward of Burnley will miss the match with a knee injury

  • As always look for Harry Kane to get on the scoresheet

Other things to watch for around the league

  • Everton are hosting Chelsea which will offer two teams in good form squaring off.
  • West Ham are hosting Newcastle, David Moyes’ squad has been slowly climbing the premier league table trying to avoid relegation
