Liverpool v Arsenal Preview
Don't think this one will go quite the same as the same fixture went last season with Liverpool putting three past the Gunner's inside fifteen minutes no less, however the game has the potential to be a high scoring game as both are brutal in defence and it could be a certain Chilean superstar who could be the difference between the sides tomorrow!
Newcastle v Sunderland Preview
If you were to go on form Newcastle would be your pick but the Tyne-Wear derby seems to just bring out the best in Sunderland at St James Park and they quite possibly could pull off another victory against the Magpies tomorrow who have a keeper who was as dodgy as f.
West Ham v Leicester City Preview
West Ham will be looking to stay in the top four on Christmas Day which would be the first time since 1985 when they finished third now wouldn't the Hammer's fans just love a bit of that, and they should get their wish for top four on Chritmas day at least as Leicester continue to struggle to avoid the dreaded drop.
Tottenham v Burnley Preview
I'm sure Sean Dyche's side will be full of confidence having pulled off a win against Southampton last week with a bit of luck also involved and needed which they'll need against a Tottenham side who trounced Newcastle 4-0 in League Cup action mid-week.
Southampton v Everton Preview
Both Southampton and Everton will be close to full strength with injuries and suspensions causing mayhem for both Ronald Koeman and Roberto Martinez and given the Saints recent woes Koeman would be happy with a draw I suspect just to stop the rot at least.
QPR v West Brom Preview
West Brom's form in London is nothing to write home about and their trip to Loftus Road tomorrow could be more of the same as QPR welcome back inform striker Charlie Austin to the starting eleven and looking to add to their fourteen points already on the board all of which have been won on home soil in fact.
Hull City v Swansea City Preview
Swansea away record at Hull wouldn't fill you with confidence of an away win tomorrow however Hull's recent form has been abysmal and could well be about to stay the same until next week at the very least given Swansea's decent start to the season.
Aston Villa v Manchester United Preview
It would be a minor miracle if Aston Villa could beat Manchester United tomorrow at Villa Park and the first since 1995 if they could, however with six wins on the bounce already United manager Louis Van Gaal will be hoping to make it seven come five o' clock tomorrow in Birmingham.
Manchester City v Crystal Palace Preview
Manchester City should be able to continue their dominance against Crystal Palace tomorrow while also putting a bit of pressure on Chelsea who are not playing till Monday away to Stoke.
Arsenal v Newcastle Preview
Arsenal's current injury crisis just keeps getting worse and worse as the season progresses and this could be their downfall tomorrow with the visit of Alan Pardew's Newcastle side who ended Chelsea's dream of going unbeaten in the League for the season something which rather pleased the faithful Gunners fans.
West Brom v Aston Villa Preview
Since Saido Berahino's England call-up the goals have dried up for the promising young striker and the Baggies have suffered enormously something which they might have the same as tomorrow.
Leicester City v Manchester City Preview
Leicester City could get a hiding tomorrow at home as Manchester City visit a team short their keeper Kasper Schmeichel while also short of confidence something Manchester City won't be short of following their Champions League second round qualification in midweek.
Sunderland v West Ham Preview
You just don't know which Sunderland is going to turn up each week, the one which held Chelsea to a draw or the one who got thrashed by Southampton and with that in mind West Ham can grab third place in the Premier League with a win tomorrow given they are one of the form side at the minute.
Crystal Palace v Stoke Preview
Crystal Palace could do with the three points right now with Stoke the visitors to Shelhurst Park tomorrow who lie four points clear of Palace who are dangerously near the drop zone just a point above Hull City and four from the bottom.
Chelsea v Hull City Preview
It could be a very long day tomorrow for Hull City tomorrow as they visit Stamford Bridge having never won a game at Stamford Bridge in any competition.
And if Chelsea are in the mood the were against Sporting Lisbon in the Champions League in midweek Hull could be licking their wounds for quite sometime going into the festive period.
Since Roy Keane's departure as Aston Villa coach the Villians have recorded a draw and a win and another win tomorrow at home to Leicester City isn't beyond them!
Aston Villa win @6/5
Gabriel Agbonlahor @13/2
The last three meetings between Aston Villa and Leicester City in all competitions have ended as away wins.
Both West Ham and Swansea are flying high in the Premier League with both fighting for at least a Europa Cup place next season and there styles of play are not too similar this time around which could end West Ham's monopoly over the Swans in recent seasons!
Swansea win @2/1
Wilifried Bony @11/2
West Ham have won nine and lost none of their last 11 home games against Swansea in all competitions.
Hull's mediocre start to the season has seen them plummet down the league and will need to put some points on the board if they are to avoid the relegation dog-fight and today could be where they begin that journey up the league table given West Brom's poor away form and Saido Berahino's goal drought not helping their cause either!
Manchester City seem to have found their shooting boots of late which spells bad news for Everton who have had a rocky start to the season and it may continue today with the scoring form Sergio Aguero is in right now!
Manchester City win @1/2
Sergio Aguero @3/1
Manchester City have kept just one clean sheet in their last 17 Premier League encounters with Everton.
Burnley visit Loftus Road today for their relegation six pointer against Queens Park Rangers with both Harry Redknapp and Sean Dyche without doubt marking this one down as three points gained as they planned out the quickest route to the magical 40 points which would see them survive the drop this season, however even a win here for either side may not see them avoid the drop!
Tottenham's in and out season looks set to continue today as they entertain Crystal Palace who themselves have been as inconsistent as the weather for most of the season thus far with a draw looking the most likely result!
Erik Lamela @8/1
Tottenham have won their last two league clashes against Crystal Palace without reply; they've not won three in a row since November 1989.
Liverpool should be able their third win on the trot by beating Sunderland at Anfield a team they have continued beating even in their darkest Premier League days at Anfield at least unless a beachball is thrown into the mix by one of their own again!
Liverpool win @1/2
Raheem Sterling @11/2
Liverpool have won five and lost just one of the last nine Barclays Premier League meetings with Sunderland.
Arsenal visit the Brittania Stadium tomorrow knowing anything less than a victory could scupper their chance's of their usual top four finish this season, however a visit to Stoke is never easy for the Gunner's and they could go home again with their tails between their legs and Arsene Wenger's be-grudger's again looking for him to go!
Newcastle will look to back to winning ways tomorrow following a loss and a draw in their last two games, however that will be easier said than done as Jose Mourinho's table-toppers Chelsea visit St James Park in the Premier League's early kick-off, who will be looking for their first win in four at the Magpies!
Garry Monk is reasonably happy with Swansea's season thus far which has yielded 19 points so far and the should add to that tally tonight at the Liberty with the visit of QPR who have a pretty awful away record in the top flight which more likely than not won't be improved tonight!
Swansea win @4/7
Wilifried Bony @4/1
There have been 13 goals scored in the last three Barclays Premier League matches between QPR and Swansea.
Burnley claimed their first win of the season before the International break with a win against Hull however though they may have turned a corner they should be no match for Stoke at the Brittania which has become one of the toughest places to visit and grab a positive result from in recent years!
It's funny how everyone including ourselves here at Attacking Soccer have not spoken of the inevitable sacking?? of Alan Pardew for quite a while and he may actually last the season or at the very least last longer than his counter-part tomorrow Harry Redknapp?
Newcastle to come from behind and win @17/2
Ayoze Perez has scored three goals in the Barclays Premier League this season, and each was a winning goal in Newcastle's last three matches.
Both these sides have struggled to score goals in their last handful of games and it would be no surprise to see a 0-0 draw come 5pm tomorrow and if their honest both teams would probably settle for a share of the spoils!
0-0 draw @8/1
Leicester City have won none of their last six Barclays Premier League matches (W0 D1 L5), failing to score in five of those games.
Premier League Champions Manchester City are as predictable as the weather right now and for that reason alone Swansea have a great chance of coming away from Manchester with a positive result having already dispensed of United in the seasonal opener.
More than 4 bookings @11/10
Sergio Aguero has scored 12 goals in 11 Barclays Premier League games this season and just nine of those appearances were starts.
Everton's record against West Ham speaks for itself and despite the Hammers fantastic start to the season the Toffees should have too much in their locker at a time when they seem to be finding their feet once more!
Best Bet: A red card in the game @9/2
Everton are unbeaten in their last 12 Barclays Premier League games against West Ham United (W8 D4 L0).
The International break seems to have suited both these two sides with Chelsea able to nurture star striker Diego Costa back to fitness, while West Brom will have a very hungry striker in Saido Berahino following his time on the England bench of which he is still smarting from!
Arsenal v Manchester United clashes have been less controversial since the years of Viera and Keane going at both on and off the field!
However the mind games are still there with Arsene Wenger telling today's media that both Danny Welbeck and Alexei Sanchez are both injury doubts and if that is the case they can just hand United the three points now and save the fans a whole lot of grief!
This will be a battle for possession supremacy with both Swansea and Arsenal fond of the keep ball game however as they have found out to there cost on many occasions possession doesn't always get the results you want or expect with the ball mostly in your possession.
Swansea half-time, Arsenal full-time 28/1 at Sporting Bet
This is Swansea City's best start to a Barclays Premier League season (15 points after 10 matches).
Newcastle manager Alan Pardew is a god on the terrace right now following three victories in a row however the silver fox knows only too well a defeat tomorrow can change fans opinions some what and a trip to the Hawthorns won't be ideal given Alan Irvine's sides home form this season!
2-2 draw 100/1 at Sporting Bet
West Bromwich Albion have only won three of their 16 Premier League clashes with the Magpies (D4 L9).
Tottenham will look to continue their fine record against Stoke at White Hart Lane tomorrow, however should Stoke grab victory tomorrow they'll leapfrog the hosts in the table and ease the relegation battle worries!
Younes Kaboul first goalscorer 22/1 at Sporting Bet
Tottenham have won six and lost just one of the last nine Barclays Premier League games against Stoke City.
George had decent week last week correctly predicting 50% of the matches. He can and will do better! This weekend's fixtures include Liverpool at home to Arsenal and Chelsea away to Stoke in the Monday night fixture.
