Man Utd v Fulham (3.30pm, Sun , Sky Sports 1)

Crystal Palace v West Brom

West Brom are struggling and are my dark horses to get sucked into relegation this year. It was a big result for them to get a draw with Liverpool, but they're still worryingly close to the bottom three (although you can say that about half the league). Crystal Palace played well against Arsenal and Cameron Jerome should have scored in that game, but they lost and now they are fourth bottom again. I like Crystal Palace at home because they're a hard-working team and they will have highlighted this as a must-win game. West Brom would take a draw but I think Palace will sneak it. PAUL PREDICTS: 1-0

Norwich v Man City

Norwich dominated the last 20 minutes against Cardiff last week, but they lost the game and it was a shocking result for them. I can't see them living with Man City and I don't think you can say that Chelsea have showed other teams how to beat them after what happened on Monday. Remember, Chelsea have players like Eden Hazard and Willian and not many teams have defenders as good as John Terry and Gary Cahill. Monday night was a wake-up call against the big teams and they need to be a bit more cute in big games, but they can go out and say "you-have a-shot, we'll-have-a-shot" against Norwich and they'll win comfortably. PAUL PREDICTS: 0-3

Southampton v Stoke

I think Southampton have picked up again. Three weeks ago they looked tired and jaded and were letting in too many goals, but I watched their game against Fulham last week and they were outstanding, just as they were against Arsenal. Stoke had a big result against Manchester United which kept them out of the bottom three, but I'm just going to lean towards the home side here because they are picking up their form. PAUL PREDICTS: 2-0

Sunderland v Hull

Hull were on a bit of a slippery slope, but they stopped the rot by drawing with Tottenham last week and they have got a threat up front so I expect them to score a goal. However, Sunderland are flying and are the in-form team at the bottom. I think Gus Poyet is a top-drawer manager tactically and I think he's doing a very good job. A couple of weeks ago, Southampton outplayed them at the Stadium of Light but generally they have been playing well and I do think they will win this game. PAUL PREDICTS: 2-1

Liverpool v Arsenal

This is a hard game for Arsenal and if they win it then I think you've got to start saying they're the favourites to win the Premier League. They have got some big fixtures coming up and this is the first of those. With Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge playing so well I think Arsenal would take a draw. Arsenal have not been playing well, but they've been winning and I think a draw would do them. It's also a big game for Liverpool after a bad result against West Brom and there's pressure on them as well. PAUL PREDICTS: 1-1 Think you know better than Merse?
