The Premier League is back and here to stay, with the next international break not until next March. That means the action comes thick and fast heading into Christmas, with so much on the line in each match, starting from this weekend. Tottenham face Chelsea in a crucial top of the table derby clash, while there are some huge six pointers at the other end. Get involved in what will be a big weekend of action, by playing our Matchday 13 Coupon, with plenty up for grabs if you know your stuff.

 

There’s £500 in the prize pot if you play for £2, for predicting the results of all 10 matches.There’s 20 points on offer for each correct result, multiplied by the figure in brackets,, and if you bag the most points, you’ll scoop the biggest share of the prize pot. Here’s a look at how the team’s stack up ahead of this weekend:

 

Brighton (x3) vs Leicester (x2): Both sides sit comfortably in mid-table after inconsistent starts to the season, but would each fancy their chances at the Amex. Brighton are coming off the back of a disappointing 2-1 loss in Cardiff, but have a decent home record with three wins so far. It’s been a tough few weeks for Leicester, but they’ve been impressive on the road, winning three of their six matches including last time out at Cardiff. But with key men Harry Maguire and James Maddison set to miss out again, a draw at x3 wouldn’t be a bad result and might be a better bet for this one.

 

Everton (x1) vs Cardiff (x7): Everton are finally starting to realise their potential, after a summer of big spending and Saturday presents another great chance for three points. They’ve been tough to beat at home, winning four out of six, including their last three. Cardiff secured a priceless last minute home win against Brighton before the international break, but have picked up just a point on their travels, and it’s hard to see them adding to their tally at Goodison. This should see a home win, possibly worth Banking for double points.

 

Fulham (x3) vs Southampton (x3): New boss Claudio Ranieri starts life at Fulham with a massive six pointer at home to Southampton. Six defeats in a row shipping 18 goals in the process cost Slavisa Jokanovic his job, and with 12 new signings in the summer, a lack of continuity has been their biggest issue. There’s plenty of talent with the likes of Ryan Sessegnon, Tom Cairney, Andre Schurrle and Aleksandar Mitrovic but they need points, and fast. Southampton find themselves in a relegation battle once again, and have only picked up one win all season, scoring just eight times. Tough one to call, but it might just be worth edging in favour of miracle man Ranieri to get his Fulham tenure off to a flyer.

 

Man Utd (x1) vs Crystal Palace (x7): Defeat in the Manchester derby stalled United’s progress which had seen them win three in four. But their clash against struggling Palace should be fairly routine, with the Eagles on a seven match winless run. Roy Hodgson’s luckless men have had a tough run-in but did give Spurs and Chelsea a run for their money, while picking up a point against Arsenal. But a lack of wins means confidence is at a low and there’s not much to suggest that will change on Saturday.

 

Watford (x5) vs Liverpool (x1): Despite their unbeaten start to the league season, it’s not been all plain sailing of late for Liverpool, with a shock defeat in Belgrade, while struggling to get past Fulham and Huddersfield. Their trip to Vicarage Road won’t be straightforward either, with the seventh placed Hornets fine at home, winning four times already, including seeing off Spurs 2-1. It was an entertaining 3-3 draw last season, and while it might not be as high scoring, you wouldn’t rule out another stalemate at x3.

 

West Ham (x9) vs Man City (x1): Despite their indifferent start to the season, West Ham usually do well in these types of matches, picking up seven of their 12 points against Everton, Chelsea and Man Utd. That said, Man City are a different kettle of fish, dropping just four points so far in the league this season, and are 18 unbeaten. The only thing for West Ham to cling onto is the fact City have drawn their two games away from home, including at Wolves, but in all likelihood, it will be another three points for Pep’s men on Saturday.

 

Tottenham (x3) vs Chelsea (x3): The biggest game of the weekend sees Spurs and Chelsea do battle, in what will be a fiercely contested London derby. Just a point separates the two sides, with Chelsea ahead after an unbeaten start. Spurs haven’t fared well against the fellow top six, losing at home to both Man City and Liverpool, putting extra pressure on this one. Tottenham have just won five home meetings with Chelsea in the Premier League, and were defeated 2-1 last season. They have several injury concerns, while the Blues are a settled outfit and will be a tough nut to crack come Saturday evening. A draw is tempting but it might just be worth edging in favour of Chelsea.

 

Bournemouth (x3) vs Arsenal (x2): Despite consecutive defeats, Bournemouth are sitting pretty in sixth, just four points off Arsenal, and will hope for better luck than the last time they faced a big six side at home. They dominated against Man Utd only to be denied a point by a last gasp Marcus Rashford goal, but in Arsenal, they face a side unbeaten in 10. With three draws in a row, including at home to Wolves and at Palace, the Gunners will be looking to get back to winning ways and you’d back them to do so, even if they face a tough trip to the South Coast.

 

Wolves (x1) vs Huddersfield (x5): No win in four has somewhat stalled Wolves’ fine start to the season, although they came away with a credible draw against Arsenal last time out. They create plenty but have struggled to find a front man to put them away, with Raul Jimenez top scorer netting only three times. Having said that, they should have more than enough for a struggling Huddersfield, who probably won’t pose much threat with just six league goals to their name.

 

Burnley (x3) vs Newcastle (x3): Five games without a win sees Burnley struggling after their seventh place finish last season. They’ve shipped 25 goals already and have just won once at home, usually their fortress. But Newcastle are yet to win away from St James’ Park, although back-to-back home wins has given them some respite. A draw at x3 probably seems like the obvious choice for this one, and maybe worth Banking?
