Tottenham vs. Fulham
For the first time since February, Tottenham have managed to string together back-to-back Premier League results and are hoping to avoid defeat for a third time in Saturday's early kick-off.
The North Londoners play host to relegation-threatened Fulham who, after beating Aston Villa and Norwich City in the past fortnight, can escape the bottom three with a third successive victory.
Felix Magath's men can be hopeful of clinching some points, too, as ESPN FC points out the barrage of injuries affecting Tim Sherwood's selection:

What's more, the Telegraph's John Ley points out that Spurs haven't kept the most fruitful record against their fellow Londoners this season:
With Tottenham so afflicted by player absences and the Cottagers in a buoyant mood given recent form, it's difficult to pick these two sides apart, where a sharing of the spoils may be an outcome that either outfit would settle for.
Prediction: Tottenham 2-2 Fulham
Norwich City vs. Liverpool
As aforementioned, the Canaries have reason to look upon Liverpool as something of a dreaded sight given their recent form against Brendan Rodgers' side.
Luis Suarez has been a particularly large thorn in the side of the Norfolk outfit, as Ley points out heading into Sunday's clash:
With another three points at Carrow Road, Liverpool can move one step closer to the 2013-14 Premier League title. Norwich City won't pose the biggest threat of their remaining fixtures, but each of the four fixtures remaining on their schedule is as big as the last.
In his Daily Mail column, Jamie Redknapp highlights Jordan Henderson's absence as being of major significance, after the midfielder was shown red in the win over Manuel Pellegrini's City last weekend:

Speaking to Norwich City TV, per the club's official website, newly appointed manager Neil Adams gave a confident approach as he prepares his side for the challenge to come, but it won't be sufficient as his side look to find the back of the net for the first time in four outings.
Prediction: Norwich City 0-3 Liverpool
Manchester City vs. West Brom
Following Sunday's disappointment at Anfield, Manchester City have no choice but to persevere with their season, taking results where they can while hoping that those above them in the standings drop points along the way.
Pellegrini is taking nothing for granted with the visit of West Brom on Monday evening, however, per the club's official Twitter feed:

Meanwhile, the Chilean's Hawthorns counterpart Pepe Mel remains confident that the Baggies will stave off relegation this term, despite the fact that they sit just three points off the bottom three:

Ahead of the West Brom clash, Martin Keown wrote in his Daily Mail column that City are "spineless" without their star trio of Vincent Kompany, Yaya Toure and Sergio Aguero in defence, midfield and attack respectively.
This will be the second game that City undergo without Toure in their ranks, hoping to improve on the 2-2 draw they were left to settle with following their midweek clash against Sunderland.
Prediction: Manchester City 2-0 West Brom
