Manchester United vs. Newcastle United
In 74 league meetings between these two sides when United have been the home outfit, Newcastle have only managed to return to the North-East with nine wins.
Based on current form, the Magpies have been one of the Premier League's most successful clubs of late and, prior to their midweek trip to Swansea City, had four consecutive wins to their name. As a result, Alan Pardew was named Manager of the Month.
The French ranks of Loic Remy and Yoan Gouffran have led Pardew's forward line with genuine threat of late, but it's the Newcastle defence that has unfortunately let Newcastle down this term, conceding an average of more than 1.70 goals per away game.
David Moyes' team, on the other hand, have one of the best attacks in the English top flight and could welcome back the services of Robin van Persie, although they will be without the suspended Wayne Rooney, who has scored 10 goals in his previous 20 meetings with the Magpies, per Transfermarkt.co.uk.
Prediction: Manchester United 4-2 Newcastle United
Southampton vs. Manchester City
This weekend's south-coast clash between Southampton and Manchester City provides an intriguing battle between two sides who are each significantly stronger when playing in their own territory.
Manuel Pellegrini's side have moved into third place in the table, but it's tough away trips such as these that City need to win if they want to reclaim the Premier League title.
It will be a tall order for a side which not so long ago lost consecutive away games to Chelsea and Sunderland, scoring just one goal in those outings.
Southampton host their second home fixture in four days and the Saints will look to replicate the 3-1 win managed in this same matchup last season, Mauricio Pochettino's side only having evolved since then.
The question is, has Pellegrini's team developed in kind?
Prediction: Southampton 2-2 Manchester City
Arsenal vs. Everton
A difficult fixture for Arsenal heading into the winter period, Everton can often prove stubborn customers at this time of year, regularly picking their season up around the new year period.
Their recent 1-0 win over Manchester United at Old Trafford will have the Toffees buzzing, although it will serve as a timely reminder to Arsenal of Everton's threat.
The league-leading Gunners will be looking to tarnish the notion that they are in a false position at the top of the table, proving doubters wrong with each passing week. A win over Everton, who have only lost once all season, would be further proof that they are title material.
With a key encounter against Napoli just around the corner, Arsene Wenger will undoubtedly have one eye on European matters this week, which could affect his line-up, but even then the North Londoners have sufficient resources to get the job done.
Prediction: Arsenal 2-1 Everton
