Queens Park Rangers vs. Tottenham Hotspur
The tremendous play of Gareth Bale has been one of the main reasons Tottenham made a major move up the table. Paired with Jermain Defoe, Spurs feature two reliable goal scorers and a struggling QPR side won't be able to slow them down.
Prediction: 2-0 Tottenham
Aston Villa vs. Southampton
Villa continue to sit dangerously close to the relegation zone, which makes home matches against clubs like Southampton—who are in a similar position—crucial. However, during a weekend with so many good games, this is one that fans can skip.
Everton vs. Swansea City
Although they sit in fifth place, Everton haven't scored a convincing EPL victory since late September. Every league match since that point has been a draw or decided by one goal. Expect the Toffees to change that against Swansea.
Prediction: 2-0 Everton
Fulham vs. Wigan Athletic
The addition of Dimitar Berbatov paid off for Fulham, but the veteran forward hasn't received enough support from his teammates. The same can be said for Arouna Kone of Wigan. Whichever star shines on Saturday will lead his club to victory.
Prediction: 2-1 Fulham
Norwich City vs. Newcastle United
Newcastle have only scored one goal in two matches since Demba Ba left for Chelsea. It's going to take some time for the squad to replace his production, which opens the door for Norwich to earn a victory.
Prediction: 1-0 Norwich
Reading vs. West Bromwich Albion
In order to remain within striking distance of a European spot, these are the type of matches in which West Brom must secure three points. They can't allow points to slip away against a relegation-level opponent, even on the road. Look for them to squeak by.
Prediction: 1-0 West Brom
Stoke City vs. Chelsea
The arrival of Ba seemed to energize Chelsea. They put together a terrific performance against Southampton, led by their new striker, and should be able to carry over that momentum. The Blues will need it against Stoke's tough back line.
Prediction: 2-0 Chelsea
Sunderland vs. West Ham United
West Ham came within minutes of eliminating Manchester United from the FA Cup, but Robin van Persie saved the Red Devils in stoppage time. It was still an encouraging performance. Winning on the road has been an issue for the Hammers, though.
