Arsenal travel to Manchester City for Gameweek 17’s headline fixture. The Gunners sit one point ahead of Manchester City in the table after losing 2-1 to Everton in midweek.

Last season, Arsenal took four of six points against the Citizens.

Pep Guardiola’s team is winless in their last six matches against Arsenal in all competitions. Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero is still suspended.

The team got a boost midweek with a win against Watford, but the City’s forwards are still misfiring.

Arsenal are 23/10 to win according to SkyBet. Meanwhile, Manchester City is 11/10.

Crystal Palace vs. Chelsea

Crystal Palace and Chelsea shared wins last season with Palace taking the first 2-1 and the Blues hammering Alan Pardew’s side 3-0 in the second.

Cesc Fabregas was in fine form for the Blues in midweek scoring a goal and tallying 11 points in Fantasy Premier League.

Chelsea have won their last 10 matches in the Premier League and have looked great doing it.

However, Crystal Palace have been good in their last three matches and should have had a draw against Manchester United in midweek.

Chelsea are 8/13 to win according to SkyBet.

Stoke vs. Leicester

Both Stoke and Leicester have the opportunity to distance themselves from the relegation heap on Saturday. Stoke currently sit four points ahead of the Foxes in the Premier League table.

Neither team is in good form and both were winless in midweek Premier League action.

Leicester have lost seven of their last eight Premier League away matches. However, with Champions League group stage pressure off the team, it is likely they can begin collecting points.

Stoke are 6/4 to win according to SkyBet.

West Brom Albion vs. Manchester United

West Brom Albion are currently flying below the radar and sit just four points off of sixth place Manchester United.

The Baggies won this fixture last term and come into the match in great form; undefeated in five of their last six. Salomon Rondon is in brilliant form and scored a hat-trick midweek against Swansea.

Meanwhile, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is playing his best football of the year. A goal and an assist midweek has the Swede flying high.

Manchester United are 7/10 to win according to SkyBet. However, West Brom comes in at a cheeky 17/4.

Tottenham vs. Burnley

Mauricio Pochettino’s side took four of six points from Burnley a season ago.

The two sides will meet at White Hart lane where Spurs have won all four of their previous home matches against the team.

Spurs have been great in front of goal at home. The team have scored at least three goals in their last three White Hart Lane fixtures in the Premier League.

Christian Eriksen takes his fantastic form into the fixture. The Danish midfielder scored twice in midweek against Hull in a man of the match performance.

He is definitely a player on the rise in FPL.

SkyBet has Spurs listed to win at 2/9.

Everton vs. Liverpool

Liverpool are undefeated against Everton in their last six fixtures. Liverpool hammered a hapless Everton the last time the two sides meet, 4-0 at Anfield.

Both teams come into the match on the back of midweek wins. Everton came from behind to beat Arsenal 2-1, while Liverpool throttled Middlesbrough 3-0.

Jurgen Klopp’s men are undefeated in 13 of 14 matches and Monday night’s Merseyside derby could see the make or break of the Reds’ run to the title.

SkyBet has Liverpool listed to win at 17/20.
