NICK HARRISON: Mourinho doesn’t look his old self, claiming the thought of losing Kane for three months is making him depressed. Can’t see his mood getting any better after seeing his side worked over by Watford. 2-1

TOM NORRIS: If Jose is to prove he’s still a master tactician then he has to come up with something to get Kane-less Spurs scoring again. Goals aren’t a problem for Watford and the visitors fragile defence will only encourage Deeney and company. 2-1

DAN HEALD: Nine points adrift of the top four places, Spurs need points and quickly. They’ll need Son and Alli to hit top gear here, but I’ll back them to edge out resurgent Watford. 1-2


NH: Good test for The Blades against a Gunners side who are improving under Arteta. Ozil won’t be granted much time on the ball and you’d expect the visitors to snatch a goal. But will it be enough? 2-1

TN: Arsenal appear to be making progress, but is dominating at Palace and then ultimately not winning anything we’ve not seen before? The Blades will ruffle a few feathers and no Aubameyang is a plus for Wilder’s men. 1-1

DH: Aubameyang’s absence will be keenly-felt for the Gunners, but there are positive early signs for them under Arteta. Lacazette to conjure a winner. 2-1


NH: The good thing for Villa was that their woeful display last Sunday was in a game when they expected to be hammered. A lack of quality in all areas is going to cost Smith’s side - as will another defeat. 2-1

TN: Can’t imagine Drinkwater will be in Villa’s midfield on the south coast. It’s a bit Grealish-or-nothing with Smith’s men at the moment, and however good he is, he can’t do it all on his own. 2-0

DH: Villa’s lack of options up front is hurting them badly. That said, there has to be a response to their abysmal showing against City and they could snatch a point. 1-1


NH: City really fancied it at Villa Park and after Palace beat them at home last season, Aguero and Co will be fired up for this. It won’t be six but could easily be three or four. 4-1

TN: Aguero is back in scoring form and that can only spell danger for a Palace side that has a patched up feel to it at the moment. Mahrez and De Bruyne will supply the Argentinian with plenty of ammunition. 3-0

DH: City were back to the devastating best last weekend. Aguero will have new goalscoring records in his sights and can inspire a big win over Palace. 4-0


NH: There’s a lot of negativity coming out of Bournemouth, who now find themselves in the bottom three. Norwich need wins and this should be a guaranteed three points if Pukki can get back on target. 2-1

TN: Quite what’s happened to Bournemouth is a mystery but they have big problems. Can Norwich become the latest team to take advantage? Cantwell, Buendia and Pukki need to fire. 2-0

DH: Bournemouth’s customary attacking verve is gone and they look to be in freefall. Norwich are showing more appetite in their relegation battle. 2-1


NH: You have to admire was Hasenhuttl’s done with the Saints. They could be just two wins away from a top six spot and with Wolves on the wane, Ings could fill his boots again. 2-1

TN: Europa League action and the festive period have taken the wind out of Wolves’ sails, while the Saints are marching on with Ings leading the way. 2-1

DH: Wolves are winless in three and now come up against a resurgent Saints side. Ings has forced himself into contention for an England call-up and can make the difference again here. 2-1


NH: Great game for Moyes to show his old club what they could have had. The Hammers have some great players but they don’t have a great team. The same can be said of Everton too. 2-2

TN: Moyes will walk out and the entire London Stadium crowd will be on their feet applauding him. Well, that’s what David would like, but instead he’s probably going to get ignored before a too tight to call 90 minutes. 1-1

DH: Moyes will keep West Ham up comfortably this season, but his side need points in tight games like this. Noble and Richarlison to score and honours even in the east end. 1-1


NH: Lampard is crying out for consistency at Chelsea and a trip to a patched-up Magpies side shouldn’t create too many difficulties for them. 1-3

TN: Chelsea’s away record stands up against some of the best in the division and that will give Lampard hope, although the Blues like to play on the counter and Brucie won’t want to let that happen. 1-1

DH: Chelsea are still in transition under Lampard, but on their day they can kill most teams with their rapid counter-attacks. Expect a tight game with an Abraham winner to settle it. 1-2


NH: Vardy was going to run out of gas at some stage but you didn’t expect all his team-mates to do the same. Burnley need to up their midfield tempo and if they do, they may get a point. 1-2

TN: The tired Foxes won’t exactly relish the trip to Burnley, but with Dyche’s men woefully out of form it represents a good chance to get back to winning ways, even without the energetic Ndidi. 0-1

DH: They’ve been off the pace recently, but Leicester can usually conjure two or three clear chances in every game. The same can’t be said for a Burnley side lacking in creativity 0-2


NH: It’s not as big a game as it used to be. But would you bet against United being the team that ends Liverpool’s long unbeaten run? They won at City but I can’t see it happening at Anfield. 3-1

TN: Liverpool won’t be as susceptible to United’s quickfire counter as City were with Van Dijk marshalling what is a quick-enough backline. Can United’s defence withstand Liverpool dominance of the ball? That’s very unlikely. 2-0

DH: Fergie would have loved the opportunity to knock Liverpool off a perch this high. Solskjaer lacks his mentor’s ruthlessness though and I expect this to be a one-sided affair. 3-1

SCORES SO FAR: Dan Heald 155, Nick Harrison 148, Tom Norris 145.
