Saturday 16 January

Wolves v West Brom – 11.30am, BT Sport 1 HD & Ultimate (KO 12.30pm)

Matchday 19 kicks off with a cracker, a Black Country derby at Saturday lunchtime live on BT Sport.

It’s been mostly miserable at The Hawthorns for Sam Allardyce since his appointment as Baggies boss, with a 4-0 defeat at home to Arsenal and an FA Cup exit to League One Blackpool dampening spirits after a 1-1 draw at Anfield in his second match.

Allardyce’s proud record of never suffering a relegation is under serious threat and West Brom must start picking up points – and fast – if they are to extend their stay in the division to a second season.

But they make the 10-mile journey north to face rivals Wolves safe in the knowledge Nuno Espirito Santo’s men are hardly in great shape themselves. 

Wolves’ defeat at home to Everton last time out means it’s just one league win in eight since talisman Raul Jimenez sustained a fractured skull at the Emirates.

Teenage stand-in Fabio Silva has still to find the net for his new club, but the Portuguese forward knows a goal in Saturday’s derby will make Wolves fans forget all about the wait.

Leeds v Brighton – NOW TV via BT TV (KO 3pm)

“This result generates a lot of sadness,” said Marcelo Bielsa – via his translator – following Leeds’ shock 3-0 defeat at the hands of Crawley in the FA Cup.

It was a humiliating exit and one that left Leeds fans critical of the Argentine due to a host of changes he made ahead of the clash.

Now Bielsa must get his team to regroup ahead of a clash against a team scrapping desperately at the foot of the Premier League table.

Graham Potter’s Seagulls haven’t tasted victory since November 21 and needed penalties to overcome fourth-tier Newport County at the weekend.

A midweek… against Manchester City…

Brighton teeter just two points clear of 18th-placed Fulham – who have two games in hand on the Seagulls – and will be desperate to put some daylight between themselves and The Cottagers.

West Ham v Burnley – Amazon Prime Video via BT TV (KO 3pm)

Burnley head to east London to take on West Ham in Saturday’s other 3pm kick-off available on Amazon Prime Video via BT TV.

Sean Dyche’s side are in the perilous position of 16th after a 1-0 defeat at home to Manchester United last time out, while a penalty-shootout victory over MK Dons in the FA Cup at the weekend will hardly have left The Clarets high on confidence.

West Ham had to rely on a late Craig Dawson header to overcome non-league opponents Stockport County on Monday night but things have been considerably smoother sailing in the Premier League.

The Hammers, tipped for a relegation battle at the start of the season, are 10th with half the season in the books and will expect to dispatch a Burnley team who have scored just nine times all season.

Fulham v Chelsea – NOW TV via BT TV (KO 5.30pm)

“Scandalous,” was how Scott Parker described Fulham’s hastily arranged midweek fixture with Tottenham.

The game, originally scheduled for December 30 but delayed due to an outbreak of Covid-19 in the Cottagers’ camp, was played after Fulham were thrust forward as Tottenham’s opposition after original opponents Aston Villa’s own outbreak.

Parker was left deeply unhappy with the short notice his relegation-battling side received. Jose Mourinho firmly disagreed claiming “selfish” agendas such as Parker’s could threaten to derail the season even further.

But Parker had the last laugh after Ivan Cavaleiro’s equaliser earned a valuable point for his men in north London. 

It means Fulham’s west London derby against Chelsea, originally scheduled for Friday evening, is pushed back to Saturday.  It’s a game which could have huge ramifications at both ends of the table as Parker bids to get one over his former team-mate Frank Lampard in the dugout and lift Fulham clear of the drop zone.

It may only be one win in three for Leicester but patchy form from their title rivals means The Foxes still sit just four points off the summit heading into Saturday night’s clash with Southampton.

Brendan Rodgers’ side ended a run of two straight draws with victory over Newcastle last time out in the league, before a 4-0 thumping of Stoke in the FA Cup.

The Leicester manager knows his team must find some consistency if they are to make good on their flirtations at the top of the table.

One of those teams, Liverpool, slipped up against the visitors to the King Power, as Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men travel to the east Midlands encouraged by a 1-0 win over the the Reds and fresh from a week off in the FA Cup.

The Austrian broke down in tears of elation after Danny Ings’ winner clinched victory over the Premier League champions. All eyes will be on the touchlines for his next trick should he pull off another impressive result come Saturday night.

Sunday 17 January

Another fixture affected by rearrangements, Aston Villa’s home clash with Everton was originally set to take place on Saturday but was pushed back to Sunday to give Dean Smith’s side time to prepare after an outbreak at the club’s Bodymoor training facility.

Despite reports suggesting the game may yet be postponed once again, as it stands the game is set for Sunday lunchtime as Everton look to make it back-to-back wins in the west Midlands following a 2-1 victory at Wolves on Tuesday night.

Carlo Ancelotti’s men have already picked up more away wins (six) this season than they’ve managed in any campaign since 2013/14.

And Everton will fancy their chances of making it seven against a Villa side who will barely have any preparation for the game with their training ground set to remain closed until Saturday.

Finally, after 17 long matches without a win, Sheffield United recorded a victory for the first time this season on Tuesday evening.

The 1-0 win over 10-man Newcastle, secured with Billy Sharp’s late penalty, has taken The Blades’ tally from two to five points and ends the longest-ever wait for a win by any team in top-flight history.

Chris Wilder’s side need just six more points to eclipse the unwanted record set by Derby County in 2007/08 for a lowest total in a Premier League campaign but the United boss may now have the more ambitious target of survival in his sights.

They bid to make it two wins from two against a Tottenham team who they beat 3-1 at Bramall Lane back in July when these two last faced off.

Spurs will have an axe to grind themselves after sacrificing a lead to draw with lowly Fulham on Wednesday evening.

Liverpool v Man Utd – NOW TV via BT TV (KO 4.30pm)

The big one. Often over-hyped, this edition of Liverpool v Manchester United lives up to the billing with England’s two most successful clubs locked firmly in a battle for the Premier League title.

Tuesday night’s 1-0 win over Burnley left Ole Gunnar Solskjaer purring as the United boss relished a “great test” on Sunday following the win which saw them go three points clear of the holders at the top of the table.

Liverpool have left the door open for their rivals this campaign with a run of three games without a win and Jurgen Klopp knows they must bounce back to reclaim authority in what appears a hotly-contested race for the title.

Klopp’s men have not tasted defeat in their last four games against United and a 2-0 win over The Red Devils almost a year ago saw them take a huge step towards winning the title last campaign. A repeat of that result would be most welcome on Merseyside.

The Man City juggernaut finally looks to be getting into gear. After a shaky start to the campaign, Pep Guardiola’s men have clicked in recent weeks with seven straight wins in all competitions.

They head into Sunday’s clash with Crystal Palace looking to capitalise on any dropped points in Liverpool’s clash with Manchester United. 

After the 3-1 win over Chelsea, Guardiola said his side had played like the City of “two seasons ago” and it was hard to argue with the Spaniard following the dismantlement of Frank Lampard’s men.

Having continued on a roll since then, City host Palace brimming with confidence. Roy Hodgson’s men have recovered since a 7-0 defeat to Liverpool but will still be scarred from the humiliating scoreline suffered against one of the big boys.

With four days rest after facing Arsenal on Thursday, Palace could be in for a tough evening at the Etihad.

Monday 18 January

Familiar foes meet on Monday night as Arsenal take on Newcastle at the Emirates just a week after clashing in the FA Cup third-round. 

Mikel Arteta’s men saw off Newcastle at the same venue on that ocassion, but needed extra time and late goals from Emile Smith Rowe and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to overcome The Magpies.

Smith Rowe has emerged as one of the stars of Arteta’s team and the midfielder’s form has been instrumental in the Gunners’ recent revival.

Newcastle, who will be smarting from defeat to Sheffield United on Tuesday, are in bad form and Steve Bruce will be wary of an eight-point cushion between themselves and the drop zone evaporating should they make it nine games without a win in all competitions.
