Game 1: Everton v Chelsea

Sam Allardyce may have Everton back on the right track but the visit of Chelsea usually spells trouble for the Toffees. The visitors have won their previous three Premier League clashes against the Merseysiders by an aggregate score line of 10-0 and have come out on top in their previous four head-to-head clashes in all competitions.

As far as the scorers go, this could be a game to opt for Alvaro Morata. The Spain international has had a hand in seven goals in as many Premier League away games this season for Chelsea (5 goals, 2 assists).

Prediction: Everton 1 Chelsea 2

Scorer: Alvaro Morata

Game 2: Manchester City v Bournemouth

Can Bournemouth stop the Manchester City juggernaut when Pep Guardiola takes his side to the Vitality Stadium? The odds suggest they've got a very tough ask on their hands and the stats back that up. City have won nine of their previous 11 league matches against Bournemouth and all five of their Premier League clashes too.

After an impressive start to the campaign Raheem Sterling will be delighted to be headed to the south coast. The 23-year-old has netted six times in just four games against this opposition including a late winner in the reverse fixture earlier in the season.

Prediction: Bournemouth 0 Manchester City 3

Scorer: Raheem Sterling

Game 3: Burnley v Tottenham Hotspur

Burnley have been the surprise package of the season so far but will the fixture congestion catch up with the Clarets over the next few weeks? The vastly underrated James Tarkowski's suspension may have a significant impact considering Sean Dyche's side have only beaten Tottenham once in seven Premier League meetings.

Dele Alli is looking to bounce back from a poor run of form but the England international has enjoyed clashes against the Lanchashire club. He's scored twice and provided an assist in three meetings with them and could be set to star again this weekend given the absence of one of Burnley's defensive stars.

Prediction: Burnley 0 Tottenham 2

Scorer: Dele Alli

Game 4: Leicester City v Manchester United

Despite the infamous 5-3 victory over Manchester United at the King Power Stadium back in September 2014, Leicester fans have endured a miserable time against the Red Devils in recent years. United have beaten Saturday's hosts on no fewer than 13 of their previous 17 encounters in the top flight.

Marcus Rashford will be looking to end the year strongly having already provided nine goals and seven assists for Jose Mourinho's side in just 27 appearances this term. He managed just 15 combined in the 2016-17 season so the 20-year-old is certainly living up to his potential at Old Trafford.

Prediction: Leicester City 1 Manchester United 3

Scorer: Marcus Rashford
