Liverpool vs. Norwich City
Liverpool were just starting to find their form before losing to United. They can't allow the defeat to push them into another extended slide like earlier in the campaign. The Reds should be able to handle a Norwich squad that has struggled in league play recently.
Prediction: 2-0 Liverpool
Manchester City vs. Fulham
All Manchester City can do is keep winning and hope United let them back in the race. City's defense has been in fine form since the calendar flipped to 2013, which boosts their chances, but they are still a clear underdog against United. Fulham shouldn't provide much resistance, though.
Prediction: 3-0 Manchester City
Newcastle United vs. Reading
This is a critical match for Newcastle. The club's attack has struggled mightily since Demba Ba left for Chelsea. A home loss to Reading, who beat West Brom over the weekend, would put them in a serious relegation fight.
Swansea City vs. Stoke City
Stoke's vaunted defense has allowed seven goals over the past two matches, albeit against Manchester City and Chelsea. The Potters must refocus their defensive effort in order to remain in the top half. Swansea are coming off a scoreless league draw with Everton.
West Ham United vs. Queens Park Rangers
West Ham have scored 19 of their 24 goals at home, illustrating the vast difference in form when they play at Upton Park. While QPR have played better as of late, the Hammers should be able to secure all three points.
Prediction: 2-1 West Ham
Wigan Athletic vs. Sunderland
In another match in which relegation will already be on the mind of both sides, Sunderland can open up a nice gap for themselves with a victory. However, Wigan understand how important defending home turf will be from here on out.
West Bromwich Albion vs. Aston Villa
Even though West Brom have hit the skids as of late after an unexpectedly terrific start, they still hold a distinct advantage over an Aston Villa squad that has the league's worst goal differential. The Baggies should get back on track with a win.
Prediction: 2-1 West Brom
