Everton v Brighton, Saturday 3pm

Goodison Park

Who will win?

There has been a great sense of anticipation around Goodison Park following Carlo Ancelotti’s arrival at the start of December and the Italian got off to a decent start with a couple of wins in his first two games.

But since then the Blues have gone down to Manchester City at The Etihad and then suffered a disappointing FA Cup defeat to a second-string Liverpool side at Anfield last weekend.

Brighton also crashed out of the FA Cup last week when they were defeated 1-0 by Sheffield United and the Seagulls have won just one of their previous seven matches in all competitions.

Both sides are in the lower part of the standings with the Toffees sitting on the 11th place with 25 points, while the Seagulls are down at 14th with one point less than their next opponents, but expect Everton to come out firing as they look to prove a point or two to their new boss with a convincing home win.

Leicester v Southampton, Saturday 3pm


How many goals will there be?

When these two sides met back in October Leicester equaled an all-time Premier League record when they put nine goals past their beleaguered opponents on the South Coast.

Since that win, the Foxes have gone from strength-to-strength and now find themselves sitting second in the Premier League table, albeit some way adrift of leaders Liverpool.

As for the Saints, they will be hoping to exact revenge when they travel to the King Power Stadium on Saturday and having won four and drawn one of their last five matches in all competitions might well prove to be a tougher opponent when these two met last time.

Even so, Brendan Rodgers’ men have lost just once in their last 14 home matches in all competitions and conceded 13 goals in the 11 subsequent league matches without a defeat in five, so seeing past a 3-0 Leicester win here is pretty difficult.

Tottenham v Liverpool, Saturday 5.30pm

What time will the first goal in the 1st half be?

Liverpool have certainly been the team of the first half of the Premier League season and it’s difficult to see past them winning the title for the first time since 1990 the way they are playing.

The leaders have taken an incredible 85 points from the last possible 87 and victory on Saturday evening would be their 12th straight league win in a season which they have been battling for silverware on no less than five fronts.

But if there’s one man who loves to bring Liverpool down to earth it’s Spurs’ boss Jose Mourinho who reveled in clashes between his Chelsea sides and Liverpool over the years.

However, his team has only won one of their last five matches in all competitions and with Moussa Sissoko, Harry Kane, Hugo Lloris, Danny Rose, Ben Davies and Tanguy Ndombele all on the sidelines, they will find it tough.

Expect Liverpool to get off to a flier with a goal in the first 10 minutes only to tire late on as Spurs snatch an unlikely draw, which would be just the second in nine games between these two,
