Chelsea kick-off the action in the early game on Saturday looking for a win that would assure the Blues retain top spot no matter what followed. It’ll not be that straightforward mind as third-placed Manchester City host them at the Etihad Stadium knowing a win would take them to the summit.

Under pressure Crystal Palace boss Alan Pardew could potentially find himself out of a job if he’s unable to stop the six game losing run? As it happens a former club of his Southampton could be the ones who signal his demise at Selhurst Park.

Stoke and Burnley meet at the bet365 Stadium with both in and around the mid table positions. A win for either would consolidate this, alternatively defeat and other results could quickly see them sucked back into the relegation picture.

A relegation battle is possibly something people might have expected from Sunderland but not Leicester! The defending champions head to the Stadium of Light to face the bottom-placed Black Cats just two points above the drop zone.

Tottenham bid to recover from a recent Champions League exit, which was swiftly followed up by a first defeat of the Premier League season against Chelsea last weekend when facing struggling Swansea. The Swans head to White Hart Lane having recorded an incredible 5-4 win against Crystal Palace, a first win in 10 games and indeed under Bob Bradley.

After recovering from a poor start to the season West Brom have climbed up to ninth and could go ahead of Watford with a win at the Hawthorns. The Hornets missed a chance to go up to sixth last weekend so a reaction is something Walter Mazzarri will be looking for against Albion.

The London derby between West Ham and Arsenal will round off the action on Saturday night, both sides are looking for a win for differing reasons at each end of the Premier League table. Defeat for the Hammers and they could end the weekend in the bottom three with a Gunners win potentially taking them top depending on other, unlikely, results.

It may be early days but title-chasing Liverpool will aim to keep this challenge on track when the Reds head to Dean Court to face Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth in the first of two games on Sunday. Merseyside rivals Everton will host Manchester United looking to end a run of one win in the last eight. However, sixth-placed United have only won once in the past seven themselves.

The final game of this Premier League schedule will see Middlesbrough hosting relegation-threatened Hull at the Riverside Stadium. It’ll be unlikely but Boro could be dragged into the bottom three prior to this game as well?

It goes without saying the expectation; most definitely the hope at least, will be for a positive result. But will this happen? We’ll find out soon enough.

Ahead of the game we’re looking for your views on what way you think it will go, which requires you to vote in the latest poll in one of the options you have been given.

However, don’t just look also have a say. We don’t just want your vote, which you can do to the right, we also want some thoughts and views ahead of the game as well so share these below.
