Manchester United will be looking to maintain their position at the top of the Premier League table when they face rock-bottom Sheffield United. Liverpool are with just one win in 7 games in all competitions and will hope to improve upon it when they visit Tottenham.
There are other key fixtures, with Fulham facing Brighton in a potential relegation six-pointer. An improving Burnley side will host Aston Villa while West Ham travel to Crystal Palace looking to extend their winning streak.
Southampton vs Arsenal
A team in disarray, Arsenal’s return to form has been cut short by their results over the last week. Branded a cup team by many, their exit from the FA Cup at the hands of Southampton meant they don’t have much to play for right now, except the UEFA Europa League.
However, Mikel Arteta would want to improve on their dismal Premier League standing right now. Southampton, on the other hand, would look to regain ground on other clubs in the race for European places. Southampton come in with the better form and should ideally, take this.

West Brom vs Manchester City
Things look grim for Sam Allardyce’s West Brom. Since his arrival, West Brom have managed to put in some decent performances. However, up against a Manchester City side that is close to finding its top gear, it would be a positive if they can avoid embarrassment at Hawthorns.

Chelsea vs Wolves
The London clubs have been having a tumultuous few weeks. Arsenal and Tottenham have been finding it hard to record wins while Chelsea have just sacked their manager Frank Lampard after a series of disappointing results. Wolves are struggling to get going themselves, having not managed a Premier League win for six games now.
However, Chelsea without a manager on the touchline are unlikely to do much and Wolves will be looking to take advantage of the situation. Expect Wolves to come away with something.

Manchester United vs Sheffield United
Two United clubs at two extremes of the Premier League table, Sheffield United have their work cut out in their mission to somehow get out of the drop zone. This has a Manchester United win written all over it, unless Sheffield United come in at Old Trafford with a different spirit.
1. Over 2.5 Match Goals @ 1.66
1. Paul Pogba to score anytime @ 3.75
Tottenham vs Liverpool
Just one win in 7, Liverpool have lost ground in the title race, with Manchester United six points ahead of them. Up against a Tottenham side that witnessed a free-fall of their own, this tie could set the tone for the coming weeks for either team. Liverpool should do well to bounce back but have shown they are struggling to get past the low block.
This game should ideally end in a draw. However, it would be foolish to count Tottenham out.
