NICK HARRISON: Spurs could face a real struggle finishing in the top four this season. If Brighton have a real go at Spurs they could be rewarded but it’s more likely Kane and Son will come up with a winner. 1-2

TOM NORRIS: Spurs huffed and puffed their way to victory over Southampton and the noises coming out of White Hart Lane are a concern. But in Kane they have a prolific scorer and he will fire them to victory on the south coast. 1-2

DAN HEALD: Spurs are becoming a soap opera this season. Rumoured strife and dramas behind the scenes won’t help their cause after a midweek humiliation by Munich. They need a response here. 1-3


NH: Everton have to come good at some time and maybe dropping England keeper Pickford should be their number one priority. Burnley will fancy getting back to winning ways with Barnes getting back on the scoresheet. 2-1

TN: It doesn’t seem all that long ago that I was warming to Everton under Silva, but things have taken a turn for the worse. Burnley don’t know when they are beaten and will make this a dogfight. 1-1

DH: Burnley’s tenacity is one of their key strengths and they’ve made themselves tough to beat this season. Everton should have taken something against City last time out and should earn a point here. 1-1


NH: The game of the weekend and what a shame it’s not on TV. Leicester look so good and there’s no reason at all they should be scared at Anfield. A win may be beyond them but a draw certainly isn’t with Vardy on target again. 2-2

TN: The Brendan Rodgers derby. Brendan would love it to be known as that as well. If Maddison is fit then Leicester can go toe-to-toe with the leaders, who will have to be at their best to win. 2-1

DH: The game of the weekend. Leicester should be gunning for a top four place this season if they can avoid untimely injuries. The Foxes will take points from the top sides this season, but not at Anfield. 3-1


NH: Time for Pukki to show us what he did at the start of the season. McGinn is purring for Villa but this has to be a home win for the attack-minded Canaries. 3-1

TN: Pukki certainly enjoys life at Carrow Road more than he does away from home - much like Norwich - and he can return to scoring form here. Villa can’t afford to lose these type of games. 3-2

DH: After successive defeats, Farke’s Norwich will have earmarked this fixture for maximum points. Villa’s recent record at Carrow Lane is poor but I’ll back them for the draw. 2-2


NH: United players don’t half work hard but The Blades lack a certain cutting edge in front of goal and that could cost them at Watford, who must win sooner than later. Whoever scores first could be the winner at Vicarage Road. 0-1

TN: Functional is definitely the word for the Blades under Wilder, and that’s not a negative. Hard work is key to success and they can really sting the Hornets, who are having a season to forget. 1-2

DH: Workrate seems to be the keyword in Wilder’s coaching manual and it could be what keeps the Blades up this season. But Watford’s superior top-flight experience might halt their progress. 1-1


NH: The Hammers have had a good month but these are the games their bubbles sometimes burst. Keep Yarmolenko off his left foot and Palace could come away with a point. 1-1

TN: What a job good old Roy does at Palace, who punch above their weight on a regular basis. In contrast, the Hammers have the ability to enjoy a really good season if they can find consistency. 2-1

DH: If the Hammers have serious top-six aspirations, this is the type of game they need to win to separate themselves from the mid-table also-rans. Yarmolenko to win it for them. 2-1


NH: How is Pepe worth £72m? That’s the burning question for Arsenal fans ahead of a home game they should win. Once again they’ll have to rely on Aubameyang but don’t bet against one of the Wilsons scoring for The Cherries. 2-1

TN: Aubameyang is carrying Arsenal with Lacazette sidelined and Ozil strangely absent. If Cabellos or Pepe can help take some pressure off that would please Emery. Bournemouth won’t back down in a game that guarantees goals. 3-2

DH: Aubameyang’s form is a worry for Bournemouth, but the visitors have enough attacking muscle of their own to get something at the Emirates. 2-2


NH: The Europa League curse could strike again with Wolves on the end of another Man City masterclass. Aguero will fill his boots even if the brilliant De Bruyne doesn’t feature. 4-1

TN: Wolves were in Besiktas on Thursday night so the thought of a trip to the Etihad is not a welcome one. Bernardo and Mahrez could have a big say in this with De Bruyne struggling. 3-0

DH: Bigger teams than Wolves have struggled to juggle their domestic and European commitments. This is the last game Nuno would have wanted after Thursday’s exertions. Mahrez and Aguero to inspire another one-sided win. 4-0


NH: Chelsea are getting there and Abraham should be back on the scoresheet against a Saints’ side who have the look of a team who could get dragged into a relegation dogfight. 1-2

TN: Southampton aren’t scoring enough goals and that’s a real concern for a team with the defence they have. Chelsea have no such worries in attack and can take their hosts apart on the counter. 1-3

DH: Southampton seem to lack a distinct identity at the moment while Lampard’s Chelsea look to be steadily improving. Abraham to get bac on the goal trail. 0-2


NH: You have to feel sorry for both Uniteds. Newcastle’s plight is best summed up by how excited they were when Andy Carroll returned. As for The Red Devils, they look a spent force but surely they can’t lose at St James’? 0-2

TN: Solskjaer and Bruce look to have the weight of the world on their shoulders. A win for either man would be very welcome, but this could be a game low on quality. Can either side find enough in attack to outscore the other? Probably not. 1-1

DH: St James’ Park deserves better football than the dross that is currently being served up currently. United fans could say the same about what they’re seeing, but they’ll be coming home cheered by a narrow win here. 0-1
