Kick-off: 12:45 GMT
This season: West Brom 3 Birmingham 1.
Last season: Not played.
Birmingham: 3-1-2

Referee: Mike Jones
Birmingham have been very strong recently and won the Carling Cup title last weekend. They should be able to beat West Brom in this one at home as well.
Birmingham to win.

Arsenal - Sunderland

This season: Sunderland 1 Arsenal 1.
Last season: Arsenal 2 Sunderland 0, Sunderland 1 Arsenal 0
Arsenal: 5-1-0
Sunderland: 1-1-4
Referee: Anthony Taylor
The Gunners should be able to take all three points from this one at home against the Black Cats. They will be desperate to bounce back from their Carling Cup defeat to Birmingham.
Arsenal to win.

Bolton - Aston Villa
Reebok Stadium
Kick-off: 15:00
This season: Aston Villa 1 Bolton 1.
Last season: Bolton 0 Aston Villa 1, Aston VIlla 5 Bolton 1.
Bolton: 2-1-3

Aston Villa have been strong recently, but they face a strong team in this one against Bolton. Should be close.
Less than 2.5 goals.

Fulham - Blackburn
Craven Cottage
Kick-off: 15:00
This season: Blackburn 1 Fulham 1.
Last season: Blackburn 2 Fulham 0, Fulham 3 Blackburn 0.

Fulham to win.

St James' Park
Kick-off: 15:00
This season: Everton 0 Newcastle 1.
Last season: Not played.
Newcastle: 1-4-1
Everton: 2-2-2
Referee: Howard Webb
Newcastle have been strong but not impressive recently, but could be able to get something from this one, but I expect it to be a close one.
Less than 2.5 goals.

West Ham - Stoke
Upton Park
Kick-off: 15:00
This season: Stoke 1 West Ham 1.
Last season: West Ham 0 Stoke 1, Stoke 2 West Ham 1.
West Ham: 2-2-2
Stoke: 2-1-3
Referee: Andre Marriner
I expect this to be a close one, but West Ham have been very strong recently and could end up winning this one against Stoke.
West Ham to win.

Manchester City - Wigan
City of Manchester Stadium
Kick-off: 15:00
This season: Wigan 0 Manchester City 2.
Last season: Manchester City 3 Wigan 0, Wigan 1 Manchester City 1.
Manchester City: 2-2-2
Wigan: 1-2-3
Referee: Stuart Attwell
Manchester City should have no problems at all taking all three points in this one against Wigan at home.
Manchester City to win with 0-1 handicap.

- Sunday -

Liverpool - Manchester United
Anfield
Kick-off: 15:00
This season: Manchester United 3 Liverpool 2.
Last season: Manchester United 2 Liverpool 1, Liverpool 2 Manchester United 0.
Liverpool: 4-1-1
Manchester United: 4-0-2
Referee: Phil Dowd
Both teams have been decent recently. Manchester United will be desperate to bounce back from their defeat to Chelsea, but I believe Liverpool at home could be too strong for them.
More than 2.5 goals.

Wolves - Tottenham
Molineux
Kick-off: 15:00
This season: Tottenham 3 Wolves 1.
Last season: Wolves 1 Tottenham 0, Tottenham 0 Wolves 1.
Wolves: 2-1-3
Tottenham: 4-1-1
Referee: Mark Halsey
Tottenham have been very strong recently but Wolves have had an habit of winning against the big teams at home and I will put a small bet on them doing that this time around as well.
Wolves to win.

- Monday -

Blackpool - Chelsea
Bloomfield Road
Kick-off: 15:00
This season: Chelsea 4 Blackpool 0.
Last season: Not played.
Blackpool: 1-1-4
Chelsea: 4-1-1
Blackpool have been weak recently and I believe Chelsea got a boost from their win over Manchester United earlier this week. The visitors should be able to take all three points from this one.
Chelsea to win.
