Newcastle United vs. Manchester City
City will be looking to take out their frustrations after letting United steal three points. Unfortunately for Newcastle they are next up on the schedule and that doesn't bode well for their chances. Expect a big City victory.
Prediction: 3-0 Manchester City
Chelsea vs. Southampton
The Blues watched their Premier League lead become a 10-point deficit and must now begin a prolonged point streak to get back in the mix. They can't afford anything less than all three points against a lackluster Southampton side.
Prediction: 2-0 Chelsea
Liverpool vs. Aston Villa
Playing without Luis Suarez, the Reds were still able to escape with a victory against West Ham. It's the latest sign that the squad's early struggles are behind them as they look to start making a move back up the table. Villa have not been as fortunate.
Prediction: 2-1 Liverpool
Manchester United vs. Sunderland
Sir Alex Ferguson will want to start seeing some improved play at the back after allowing five goals over the last two matches. Luckily for the Red Devils, Sunderland feature one of the league's least potent attacks and should help resolve those woes.
Prediction: 3-0 Manchester United
Norwich City vs. Wigan Athletic
Norwich are currently at the bottom of the table's muddled middle, but still in the mix. If they want to avoid falling off the pace, these are the types of matches they must win. Wigan are just two points clear of the relegation zone due to consistently poor defending.
Prediction: 2-1 Norwich
Queens Park Rangers vs. Fulham
There are two ways to view things for QPR. The positive side is that they have been more competitive lately, earning three straight draws. But they still haven't won a game. A struggling Fulham squad provide a chance to end that streak, but a draw seems more likely.
Stoke City vs. Everton
While Stoke's defensive approach isn't much fun to watch most weeks, it works. The Potters are in ninth place solely because of their league-leading defense. Everton must find a way to gain traction if they want three points on the road, but it's an uphill battle.
