Swansea City vs. Manchester City

Manchester City have failed to score in their only two Premier League trips to the Liberty Stadium, making for an intriguing record in need of breaking if Manuel Pellegrini's side are to maintain their current trajectory.

Under the Chilean, the Citizens have come upon some of their most prolific form, averaging 2.84 goals per game, according to Statto.com.

Swansea's hopes of maintaining their unbeaten run against Pellegrini's men seem even more futile when one considers that the Welsh outfit are without a win in six outings across all competitions and have conceded in each of their last two home fixtures.

The only small consolation for Michael Laudrup's team is that Sergio Aguero's injury will prevent him from featuring in midweek, but City's attacking reserves will be sufficient to earn the three points in South Wales.

Prediction: Swansea City 1-2 Manchester City

 

Southampton vs. Chelsea

New Year's Day will mark precisely a month since Chelsea and Southampton met at Stamford Bridge in the reverse of this week's fixture, where it was the Blues who triumphed 3-1 in West London.

However, the St. Mary's faithful will be hoping that home advantage is enough to earn their side some redemption against Jose Mourinho's giants, who lost on their last trip to the south coast club back in March.

Saints legend Matt Le Tissier recently pointed out this match in particular as a vital fixture:

Chelsea have won three, drawn three and lost three of their nine Premier League away games this season, making for an equally mixed bag of results when playing in unfamiliar territory.

Southampton have shown their propensity to play well against the big guns this term, earning results against Liverpool, Manchester United and Manchester City, and it's another draw that the Saints are likely to settle for this week.

Prediction: Southampton 2-2 Chelsea

 

Manchester United vs. Tottenham

Manchester United haven't had a good run against Tottenham of late and have failed to beat the North Londoners in their last three meetings, but are fortunate to be playing an out-of-sorts Spurs side this Wednesday.

Tim Sherwood is still unbeaten in the league as interim manager of Tottenham, but faces his toughest test yet with an away fixture at Old Trafford, where he's likely to see that two-match streak come to its end.

United have been in consistent form of late, winning their last six fixtures across all competitions, and look to be entering their characteristically fruitful winter stretch, with Danny Welbeck giving the club some cause to be joyful in the absence of the injured Robin van Persie.

Prediction: Manchester United 3-1 Tottenham
