NICK HARRISON: Klopp can well afford to switch things round so Mane may be rested again giving the likes of Origi and Oxlade-Chamberlain to make it a tough start for Watford’s new manager. 4-0

TOM NORRIS: Origi could be Liverpool’s secret weapon here as surely Klopp rotates his front six ahead of more difficult fixtures. 4-1

DAN HEALD: Baptism of fire for new Hornets boss Pearson. Has to be a damage limitation exercise. Despite their midweek exertions in Salzburg, Liverpool will hit the goal trail. 3-0


NH: Dyche won’t accept another dire display while the law of averages says Newcastle’s good run must end soon. Time for Barnes and Wood to come good again and I just think they will. 2-1

TN: Out of nowhere Burnley are hovering above the drop zone and Newcastle are two points off fifth spot. It’s a funny old game. Bruce’s boys will leave with something - quite possibly a win. 1-2

DH: Four defeats in a row have seen Burnley drop like a stone in recent weeks. Sean Dyche, you’d imagine, will know it’s vital to stop the rot in this type of game. In-form Newcastle can’t be underestimated and the hosts would probably be happy with a point. 1-1


NH: Howe’s talking as if he’s taken his Cherries as far as he can. At least he’s got Wilson - the good one, Harry - back for The Bridge. But should be comfortable for Chelsea even with their extremely dodgy defence. 3-1

TN: One thing I didn’t ever think Bournemouth would be is boring, but that’s what they’ve become. Chelsea are anything but and will cruise to victory. 3-0

DH: These are worrying times for Bournemouth. Ake’s injury is the latest in a litany of casualties for the depleted Cherries. Expect Abraham and Mount to take full advantage of that defensive vulnerability here. 3-1


NH: An early goal could lead to a pre-festive feast for Foxes fans. But the longer The Canaries can keep Vardy and Co at bay, the better their chances of making the scoreline look more respectable. 3-0

TN: It’s a shame you can only have three players from one team in fantasy football, because the Foxes could run riot here with Vardy in red-hot form. 5-0

DH: Leicester dispatched a naive Villa side with ease last week. The triple attacking threat of Vardy, Iheanacho and Maddison will relish taking on a porous Norwich defence that is the second worst in the division. 4-0


NH: Villa looked really poor against Leicester and they can’t afford to be like that at Bramall Lane where Wilder will be demanding more of the same from his all-action Blades. 2-0

TN: The Blades needed that comeback victory at Norwich with their form just tailing off. Villa were far too open against Leicester and Smith won’t fall into that trap again. 2-1

DH: A fixture that will evoke memories of last season’s 4-1 humbling for Villa fans. The Blades will be confident of three points against Dean Smith’s men who struggle to find a Plan B at times, but I’ll back the visitors for a point. 2-2


NH: The Hammers were hopeless against Arsenal and the Saints will see this as a must-win and with another goal from Ings, they will. 2-1

TN: Ings for England? I’m joking of course, but the Saints hitman is in fine form and will sense another goal against a worryingly fagile Hammers. 2-2

DH: Last week’s defeat at Newcastle could just be a blip on Southampton’s upward trajectory. The Saints are much improved in recent weeks, but will be up against a Hammers side desperate for points. Pellegrini’s men to nick it with a late goal. 1-2


NH: Both produced shock performances a week ago to beat City and Chelsea. Can’t see Everton winning no matter how much big Dunc inspires them. 3-2

TN: If Everton play into United’s hands like City did then this only ends on way, but Big Dunc’s Blue Army will be eager to impress and avoid the hairdryer. 3-1

DH: Confidence must be flooding back among the United squad after their impressive derby win. Have they turned a corner after a stuttering start to the season? Time will tell, but they’ll certainly have to scrap for the points with Duncan Ferguson in the visiting dugout. 2-1


NH: Has the potential to be the game of the weekend. Wolves are good going forward but so are Spurs and with Kane rested, it’s Mourinho who may be the happiest Portuguese in the Black Country tomorrow afternoon. 1-2

TN: Mourinho has decided that attack is the best form of defence with Tottenham’s current back line and that makes them great to watch. Wolves don’t know when they are beaten though. 2-3

DH: Wolves are a tough nut to crack. Nuno has his side so well-drilled each week, you’d have to say they’re in the top six on merit. But having rested Kane in midweek, you’d have to think that Spurs will be fresh enough to edge this one. 1-2


NH: It would be great to think Arsenal could pack all their troubles away and wipe the floor with City. It’s feasible because Guardiola’s fast-fading team have long reached their peak. Can’t see it though with Sterling back in the goals. 1-3

TN: If there was a team you’d want to play on the back of a derby defeat that pretty much ended your title hopes it’s Arsenal, who were made to look good by West Ham. 1-3

DH: Ordinarily you’d fear for Arsenal in this fixture, but City went off the boil again last week. Guardiola will look to put right a lacklustre derby display and will surely have Sterling and Jesus hounding a fragile Arsenal. 1-3


NH: It will be a noisy affair at Selhurst Park where both sides may have to settle for a point unless Benteke can surprise everyone and nick a winner! 2-1

TN: Another MNF that will be nothing but an inconvenience to those in the studio. Will be cagey. 1-0

DH: The ‘M25 derby’ barely registers as a big game for neutral fans. Hopefully the simmering tension between the supporters of these clubs will enhance an otherwise unremarkable fixture. 2-1

SCORES SO FAR: Dan Heald 120; Tom Norris 113; Nick Harrison 107
