“Antonio Conte’s men will be confident heading into the clash at Stamford Bridge”
Chelsea v Stoke
Hull City 0-2 Everton
Everton’s inconsistency has been an infuriating problem for Ronald Koeman this term.
However, his side should make it consecutive wins in the Premier League against Hull at the KCOM Stadium.
Mike Phelan’s rock-bottom Tigers will put up a fight but the class at Koeman’s dispense should be enough to get the job done.
Burnley 2-1 Sunderland
Burnley are a much stronger proposition at home than they are away from home and Turf Moor is a real fortress at the moment.
They have won three of their last four games at home by a single goal and it wouldn’t surprise me to see it happen again.
Sunderland are looking a lot better than they did a couple of months ago but their away form is still patchy.
Chelsea 3-0 Stoke
Chelsea have been relentless in securing 12 victories on the bounce and with Diego Costa and N’Golo Kante likely to return against Stoke I think that becomes 13.
Antonio Conte’s men will be confident heading into the clash at Stamford Bridge.
Stoke can cause problems but were soundly beaten by Liverpool last time out and will do well to keep Chelsea to a low-scoring loss.
Leicester 1 West Ham 2
West Ham are in a rich vein of form and struggling Leicester are unlikely to be able to stop their resurgence.
Slaven Bilic’s side head to the champions looking for their fourth win in a row.
The Foxes are without a win in three and the ongoing absence of Jamie Vardy will see them come up short again.
Man United 4-0 Middlesbrough
The Jose Mourinho effect is finally starting to kick in at Old Trafford with Manchester United winning their last four league matches and being unbeaten in their last nine.
Neither of those runs will end against a Middlesbrough team who find it difficult in front of goal.
I expect a comfortable United win with Zlatan Ibrahimovic to get on the scoresheet.
Southampton 1-1 West Brom
Southampton were outclassed by Tottenham at St Mary’s on Wednesday and will look to bounce back against West Brom.
The Baggies were unfortunate to lose against Arsenal at the Emirates on Boxing Day and will be determined to pick up a victory.
I don’t think there is much between these sides so I expect a score draw.
Swansea 1-3 Bournemouth
Swansea are terrible in defence and despite sacking Bob Bradley they won’t fix that problem overnight.
Bournemouth have struggled in recent matches but a trip to Wales could get them firing again.
Jack Wilshere has looked lively and Callum Wilson could return to form with a bang against the Swans.
Liverpool 2 Manchester City 2
Liverpool look to be back to their best but Manchester City are showing their class again.
Both teams recorded wins last time out and this looks to be an entertaining fixture.
The two sides are lethal going forward but defensive frailties should deliver plenty of goals at Anfield.
Watford 1-3 Tottenham
Watford are a strange team, they rarely impress me but they get results and won’t go down this year.
They have only won two of their last eight though and I would be surprised if they win here.
If Tottenham want to finish in the Champions League places, they need to win games like this.
Their confidence will be high after that Southampton victory and I expect Harry Kane will want to make up for that awful penalty miss.
Arsenal 0-0 Crystal Palace
Sam Allardyce loves playing Arsenal and with the new manager bounce I fancy Crystal Palace to get something at The Emirates.
Arsenal will probe but can their possession-happy style be able to break down a resilient Eagles side?
Allardyce picked up a point in his first game and he’ll be desperate to repeat that trick again in north London.
