Tottenham will look to improve their chances of finishing in the top four when they travel to St James’ Park to face Newcastle United on Sunday.
The Magpies are languishing above the relegation zone at present, and they will be desperate to pick up points with rivals Brighton and Fulham also in action on Sunday.
Steve Bruce’s Newcastle have not won any of their previous six league games, while they have only won two of their last 20 matches in all competitions.
After a promising start, they have plummeted down the table, and they look in real danger of being relegated.
Newcastle could have winger Allan Saint-Maximin back from injury, but they will still be without top goalscorer Callum Wilson.
Without Wilson, the Magpies have looked toothless in attack, and they are likely to struggle against Jose Mourinho’s troops.
Spurs have won two of their last three on the road in the league, and they should claim all three points at
Mid-Table Clash at St Mary’s
14th-placed Southampton will do battle with 15th-placed Burnley in Sunday’s early kick-off.
Both sides will feel they have done enough to avoid the drop, but one more win should seal their place in the top flight for next season.
Southampton’s league form has been woeful of late, with Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side winning just one of their previous 12 in the top flight.
Burnley, on the other hand, are proving hard to beat, losing one in seven under Sean Dyche.
Burnley have only lost one of the last eight meetings between the pair, and they are
4/5 in the double chance market.
Grealish’s Return Should Lift Villa
Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish looks set to return from a seven-week absence in time for Sunday’s clash with Fulham.
Dean Smith’s side have struggled in the final third without their talisman, and they are without a win in their previous four matches.
With Grealish back in midfield, Fulham will have their work cut out, and their form does not bode well ahead of kick-off.
Scott Parker’s side have lost three in four, and although they have proven hard to beat of late, they proved no match for Villa earlier this season.
Fulham have won just one of their previous 17 trips to Villa Park, and a home win should be considered at
United to Solidify Top Four Spot
Manchester United may have lost to Leicester in the FA Cup, but they can get back to winning ways when they welcome Brighton to Old Trafford.
The Red Devils are unbeaten in nine in the league, while at home, they have not lost in seven.
Brighton have won their previous two matches but those wins came against Southampton and Newcastle, two teams at the wrong end of the table, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men should provide a far sterner test.
Manchester United have won each of their previous five meetings against Brighton and scored exactly three goals in each of the last four.
With that in mind, United to win and over 2.5 goals looks a great bet at
