the weekends other fixtures 13-14 january

CHELSEA vs LEICESTER CITY
Should be a routine outing for Chelsea as they continue to battle Man U for second place. Leicester’s current form belies their poor early season form, and their focus these days is firmly on what is above. Home win.

CRYSTAL PALACE vs BURNLEY
Burnley have slipped from their top four spot just last month, but still lead the chasing pack. Palace’s revival under Roy Hodgson is little short of spectacular. Certs for the drop for early season crystal ball gazers, their form has been exceptional. Form and confidence could play a big part today - as could injuries. Draw.

HUDDERSFIELD TOWN vs WEST HAM UNITED
At the start of the season, not many would have had Huddersfield in 11th position in January. But David Wagner will be well aware that they’re also just four points from the drop zone, with a squad that will be stretched by the exertions of a full Premier League season. We go into this in excellent league form and should see Marco Arnautovic back in the starting line-up. Winston Reid looks set to join Cresswell in the treatment room, so defence will be a priority. This one’s there for the taking and we have the players to come away with all the points. Away win.

NEWCASTLE UNITED vs SWANSEA CITY
This meeting of Iberian management is also one between two nervous looking sides. Newcastle haven’t won at home since October, while Swansea are rock bottom and finding goals hard to come by. Carlos Carvalhal came out with some Cantona-esque nonsense about boats and fish in the run-up to this game, but you feel that even lyrical licence won’t help them today. Home win.

WATFORD vs SOUTHAMPTON
Will Southampton be the next club looking for a new manager? Their recent slide down the table has seen them stay out of the drop zone on goal difference only and that will concern their fans and board alike. Watford, although in 10th spot, have been dismal in recent weeks, having lost six of their last seven league games. Who’s to say it might not be them looking for a new manager ere long? There’s no Charlie Austin for the Saints, who will have to battle to get anything today. Draw.

WEST BROMWICH ALBION vs BRIGHTON & HOVE ALBION
Who’d be a Baggy? West Brom are winless in their last 20 games – yes, 20 – while Brighton have fought hard for their current lower-mid-table position. There’s little to inspire the neutral here. Draw.

TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR vs EVERTON (1730 ko)
BFS returns to London with a team displaying the kind of inspirational performances he’s become known for. But will the Toffee Bus be enough to thwart Kane and Son for 90 minutes? Unlikely. Home win.

Watford are dropping like a stone. 2-0 down at home to Saints.

Did the same last season.

It's not the principle. It's the money.

Done well to get back to 2-2 but the Watford equaliser was handled in.

VAR ?

Dropped to tenth - they must be bricking it :i am genuinely amused:

But they are on a pretty awful run

It was quite similar when Bournemouth Wilson handled the ball in against West Ham and robbed us 3 points. Hopefully a better ref and revenge next week.

See one of Moyes targets got himself sent off today. Christ, I hope these Ndong rumours are complete bullshit.

I hate it when people don't know the difference between "your" and "you're". There so stupid.
