There are two big derbies to look forward to this weekend as Spurs play host to North London rivals Arsenal, and Goodison Park stages the latest Merseyside Derby.
Manchester United also face a tough test as they travel to West Ham, and it’s possible the Gunners may have leapfrogged United in the table come Sunday evening.
Spurs vs Arsenal
Spurs have won two and drawn one of the last four renewals of this fixture but, perhaps more important, is Arsenal’s dominance in their last four head-to-heads – winning three to nil and drawing the other game 1-1.
Arsenal have also won their last three Premier League games to nil against Aston Villa, Manchester City and Stoke – scoring 10 goals in the process.
Spurs have won of four of their last five Premier League home games, drawing the other against Manchester United, and will surely provide stern opposition.
On paper it looks a tight call, but Arsenal may just have the edge mentally over their London rivals and can win to nil.
3 points Arsenal to win to nil @ 10/3
Everton vs Liverpool
It’s been a very disappointing season for Everton who, at the beginning of it, must have harboured dreams of playing in Europe next season. However, they’re languishing in 12th position with just 26 points and are nearer the relegation battle than the European spots.
Everton are however unbeaten in their last five cup and league games (four draws), whilst Liverpool have drawn two and lost one of their last four games.
Everton have also held their own in the last two corresponding fixtures, and four of the last five Premier League Merseyside Derbies have ended in draws. With so many draws in current and past form – it looks the value once again.
Draw 3 points @ 5/2
West Ham vs Manchester United
West Ham have beaten Liverpool and Manchester City at home this season, but don’t look to be in quite the form they were earlier in the season.
Meanwhile, United have drawn three of their last four Premier League away games and failed to beat Cambridge away in the FA Cup.
United did win this fixture last year, but the two renewals before that were both 2-2 draws. West Ham have also failed to score at home just once this season, whilst United have failed to score just three times on their Premier League travels.
Both teams to score looks the value of the weekend at 4/5, whilst the 16/1 for a 2-2 draw also looks worth a stab.
3 points both teams to score @ 4/5
1 point correct score: 2-2 @ 16/1
