NICK HARRISON: United are getting players back to full fitness and The Cherries couldn’t find the back of the net when they were last at home to struggling Norwich. Got the makings of a draw. 1-1

TOM NORRIS: Surprisingly, Bournemouth are struggling for goals at the moment and that could play into United’s hands. Ole’s men have Martial back to strengthen their frontline. 1-2

DAN HEALD: United are slowly showing signs of improvement and growing steadily in confidence. Defensive solidity isn’t usually synonymous with Bournemouth but successive clean sheets suggest this could be a tight affair. 0-1


NH: Wolves shouldn’t fear any game in the top flight when boss Santo always good on gameplan front. But The Gunners are good at home and will do enough to take the points. 2-1

TN: The Gunners remain remarkably fragile - summarised by the throwing away of a two-goal lead at home to Palace. Wolves will be ready for what the hosts have to throw at them. 1-1

DH: Xhaka’s fractious relationship with the Gunners faithful rumbles on and his days as captain look numbered. Wolves should lack to capitalise on the disharmony among Emery’s squad and could take a point here. 1-1


NH: City away last week and the league leaders at home next. The fixture computer hasn’t been kind to Villa, who may struggle to keep Liverpool at bay. 1-3

TN: After back-to-back Premier League victories the sight of matches against Manchester City and Liverpool must have been tough to take for Villa, who will be glad when this one is over. 0-3

DH: Villa held their own at City before a second half capitulation. Liverpool have an exemplary recent record at Villa Park though and should have the firepower to continue that form here. 1-3


NH: Norwich picked up a point in their last away trip to the South coast but this may be a different story against a Brighton side who could be inspired by teenage man Connolly. 2-0

TN: Gone is the free-flowing goal scoring Norwich of the early rounds of fixtures and that will play right into Brighton’s hands. Potter’s men are a force on home turf and in Maupay and Connolly they’ve got goals in them. 2-0

DH: Neutrals will hope Farke’s Norwich are not a spent force this season after some eye-catching early victories. Brighton look a more reliable proposition, with Connolly and Maupay leading their charge. 2-1


NH: This could be embarrassing for The Saints but it all depends on how much Guardiola tinkers with his City line-up. I’d like to see Foden given a run of games in the Premier League but with the Silvas playing so well, he may have to wait. 5-1

TN: Not sure it matters what team Pep picks for this one. City are oozing attacking talent and with Southampton’s defence worryingly fragile this could turn ugly for Ralph’s men - again. 6-0

DH: With 12 goals conceded in their last two, a return to the Etihad is the last thing Hasenhuttl’s Saints need right now. This one won’t end well either, with Sterling and De Bruyne in ruthless mood. 5-0


NH: Burnley aren’t as defensive as they used to be while The Blades back line has served them well on their top flight return. Cracking tactical battle between two English bosses in Wilder and Dyche. Might end up all square. 1-1

TN: This is one that Wilder will have looked at before the season and thought ‘bring it on’. It’s a clash between two hard-working teams with a definite plan. The Blades are tough to crack at home and Bramall Lane will be rocking. 1-0

DH: Two teams who are greater than the sum of their parts and whose work rates are consistently high. Expect neither team to give an inch in an evenly-matched contest. 1-1


NH: Just when you think The Hammers are getting good, they turn awfully bad. So Newcastle have a chance of taking all three points with super-sub Carroll heading in the the winner? 1-2

TN: It’s hard to know what to make of the Hammers, who are certainly better than their recent form suggests. Newcastle are solid at home, but far less impressive on their travels. 2-0

DH: Gauging the mood of Hammers fans on radio phone-ins right now, they’re as confused as the rest of us by their side’s inconsistency. The quality’s there this should be a formality for them against the uninspiring Geordies. Yarmolenko to net the winner. 2-1


NH: Slowly and surely, Lampard is getting it right at Chelsea and what better game to add a few more goals to their tally than a trip to Watford. 1-3

TN: It’s hard not to enjoy watching Lampard’s buccaneering Blues. Pulisic, Willian, Mount and Abraham were selected last weekend, but then Hudson-Odoi and Barkley are pushing for recalls. It spells trouble for Watford. 1-3

DH: Everything’s rosy at Chelsea right now. A worshipped manager, hungry young squad and a happy fanbase. Back pulisic and Abraham to sustain the Blues fine form. 0-2


NH: Zaha doesn’t look as if he’s enjoying life at the Palace while every player seems to have a smile on their face at Leicester. If The Foxes can win here it will only add to their chances of a top-four finish. 1-2

TN: The Foxes won’t find Palace’s defence quite as inviting as Southampton’s, but that’s not to say they can’t grab another important win. 0-1

DH: Palace are resolute and disciplined at home, but free-scoring Leicester will go there without fear. Vardy to bag a second half winner. 0-1


NH: The Toffees played West Ham off the pitch in their previous home game but Alli, Son and Kane might provide a much sterner test in what should be an entertaining end to the weekend. 2-2

TN: Both teams have been well below-par this season. Silva’s Toffees flatter to deceive, while Spurs look like they need an injection of fresh faces. They will have to make do for the time being and Kane and Son can lead them to victory here. 1-2

DH: Everton fans will hope their side have turned a corner after successive wins. Spurs still flatter to deceive this season. Richarlison to net in a home win. 2-1

SCORES SO FAR: Dan Heald 75; Tom Norris 64; Nick Harrison 64.
