Talking Point: Renewed hope in the title hunt for City, but Norwich will be a tough opponent.

Prediction: 1-1

Prediction: 2-0

Swansea v Blackburn

Talking Point: QPR have won some big games of late but this will be another tricky test for them

Prediction: 2-0

Man Utd v Aston Villa

Key Battle: United will take on Villa hoping to bounce back and Wayne Rooney will look to take his anger out on a Villa defence marshalled by James Collins

Talking Point: United will surely put a poor Villa side to the sword here

Prediction: 1-1

Arsenal v Wigan
