NICK HARRISON: Rodgers’ cunning plan to make The Foxes top-four challengers is definitely paying off and here’s the perfect chance to pick up three easy points at Southampton side. Ings will net but Leicester will score more. 1-3

TOM NORRIS: There’s plenty to admire about Leicester, who had the players in place long before Rodgers helped turn them into top-six contenders. Ralph will be feeling the heat at the Saints. 0-2

DAN HEALD: Leicester have quality in all areas and Rodgers is certainly using it effectively. Maddison keeps delivering and if he and Vardy hit their stride it should be enough to see off a Saints side who are winless in four. 0-2


NICK HARRISON: Villa shouldn’t fear this trip against a City side who won’t want a repeat of the last time a West Midlands’ side ventured to Eastlands. But with De Bruyne back and Aguero starting, it’s got the be business as usual. 4-1

TOM NORRIS: Trying to work out Pep’s starting XI is more challenging than predicting the outcome of this one. Villa have nothing to lose, but that isn’t always a good thing when City click into gear. 4-0

DAN HEALD: It’s just as well Villa have taken six points from their last two. They haven’t played a side of City’s calibre since their relegation three years ago. This could be a rude awakening if City hit their stride. 5-1


NH: Everton were very good last week but Brighton won’t be as awful as West Ham were seven days ago. The Seagulls are improving and will be out to put that defeat at Villa behind them. 2-1

TN: Just when Silva is feeling the heat Everton manage to produce a performance that makes everyone think they are on the right path. Brighton are usually hard to beat at home, however. 2-2

DH: Everton looked to have turned a corner against West Ham. Silva will certainly hope so, but they’ll need to match te workrate of a high-energy Brighton side who’ll miss the suspended Aaron Mooy. 1-2


NH: Watford need a win to kickstart their season. They came so close at Tottenham and that display with spur them on to take all three against a Bournemouth side who blow hot and hold. 2-1

TN: The trip to Tottenham came at the right time for Watford, who were craving a positive result. But Bournemouth are improving - they even kept a clean sheet last weekend - and with their attacking talent, they might nick this. 1-2

DH: Bournemouth’s firepower should be enough to bag the points. For all of Watford’s improvements against Spurs, they don’t convince defensively. 1-2


NH: The Blades work so hard and after beating Arsenal, there’s no reason why they can’t take a point in London. They need a goalscorer but so do The Hammers after that pre-Halloween horror show at Goodison. 1-1

TN: It’s no real surprised that the Blades have the joint-best defence in the top-flight. Wilder’s men are honest and work incredibly hard to limit scoring chances. The Hammers need a reaction to last week and it’s got the look of a draw. 1-1

DH: Sheffield United have confounded expectations and it’s hard not to be impressed by Chris Wilder’s side. They will be caught out though this season and I can see the Hammers upping their game and edging this one. 2-1


NH: Will it be a TV treat at Turf Moor? Burnley will still be fuming at not getting a point at Leicester while Lampard’s squad is looking better game by game. Back Abraham to bag the winner. 1-2

TN: Playing away from home looks to suit Lampard’s Chelsea with Willian, Mount, Hudson-Odoi and Abraham able to counter with pace and cause plenty of problems. Burnley need to be careful. 2-3

DH: Putting faith in youth is paying dividends for Lampard, even if his hand was forced by a transfer embargo. Hudson-Odoi is a class act and can help see off the stubborn Clarets. 1-2


NH: Bruce’s backline looks good but it’s upfront where they struggle. Wolves love a good counter-break game and this might well play into their hands with Jimenez on target again. 1-2

TN: Five goals in nine games tells you everything you need to know about Newcastle’s struggles. They’ve got some lively attackers, but that end product is a concern. Wolves need to be wary of Bruce’s men at home, though. 1-0

DH: Defensive quality seems to be Bruce’s main strategy for survival this season. They’’ll be stubborn opposition once again but Wolves will have enough attacking invention to take a point. 1-1


NH: Lacazette’s fit again and Emery has to find a regular starting role for him with Aubameyang looking moody and Pepe looking nothing like a £72m player. Palace should fancy their chances but you’d think The Gunners will come good. 2-1

TN: Got a feeling that Zaha will fancy showing Arsenal what they missed out on. Signing him would have been a better option than Pepe and Palace will be confident of making the trip home with something to show for their efforts. 1-1

DH: Arsenal fans were left fuming after some familiar failings came to light in their defeat in Sheffield. Palace have gone slightly under the radar so far and have steadily climbed the table.Aubameyang’s hungry for another golden boot though and could make the difference here. 2-1


NH: We’ll put Liverpool’s poor performance at Old Trafford down to the annoying international break. What better team to play than free-falling Spurs and the returning Salah could fill his boots. 3-1

TN: Liverpool looked short of ideas without Salah and that’s a concern for Klopp, who is lacking a game-changing central midfielder in the Coutinho mould. Still, Tottenham could only draw at home with Watford, so the Reds will return to winning ways. 2-0

DH: Sooner or later Spurs are going to deliver a big performance. I expect them to be up for this one and Kane to net, but Salah’s return should get the hosts back to winning ways. 2-1


NH: The Canaries beat City and could they do a Manchester double? The clean sheet at Bournemouth will boost their confidence but United must win one soon, especially if Rashford clicks into gear. 1-2

TN: Norwich’s early promise is petering out, but United are vulnerable on the road, and especially when they’ve got to go and win. The Canaries sunk City, but United might just escape with a point. 2-2

DH: United have to take the positives from their hard-won point against Liverpool. I expect them to build on that with a much more attack-minded display. Rashford and James to net in a comfortable win against the ailing Canaries. 1-3

SCORES SO FAR: Dan Heald 64; Tom Norris 57; Nick Harrison 56.
