Weekend Premier League Tips & Preview
Tottenham Hotspur v Watford (Saturday)
Should midweek results go their way, Spurs could be within touching distance of leaders Chelsea, with a home encounter against London rivals Watford the perfect opportunity to add another three points to their tally. Although Harry Kane is not likely to return to action in time for this game, Son Heung-min has proven himself to be a worthy stand-in.

Stoke City v Liverpool (Saturday)
Despite having lost their last two Premier League matches, with another tough away tie against Burnley taking place beforehand, Stoke City are always a handful at home, with Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool looking to enhance their Champions League qualification hopes with a win on the road. Sadio Mane and Philippe Coutinho were the Reds stars in the Merseyside derby, with the duo once again set to start in attack.
West Bromwich Albion v Southampton (Saturday)
Despite both sides having firmly cemented their place in mid-table, the duo are both struggling to find any real form over recent weeks, however positive displays against Arsenal and Manchestr United for Tony Pulis’ men are likely to ensure the Baggies are the favourites at the Hawthorns. Manolo Gabbiadini could well return for the Saints, with the Italian striker having missed their last few matches after picking up an injury at White Hart Lane last month.

Sunderland v Manchester United (Sunday)
David Moyes faces off against his old club knowing that nothing but wins are good enough at this stage of the season, with the likes of John O’Shea, Darron Gibson and Donald Love looking to inspire a rare win, with Adnan Januzaj ineligible to play against his parent club. Should he fail to make it in time for their midweek encounter with Everton, Paul Pogba could well return at the Stadium of Light, with the likes of Chris Smalling, Phil Jones and Juan Mata all facing long spells on the sidelines through injury.
