Gameweek 19 English Premier League will be headlined by Liverpool hosting Manchester City. Liverpool have won the last three league fixtures between the two sides.

Manchester City is in excellent form as of late. The Citizens have won three straight. Pep Guardiola’s team will see the return of Sergio Aguero.

The Argentine has struggled mightily against the league’s top sides, and gameweek 19 English Premier League could see him return to form.

Liverpool’s Joel Matip may return from injury, but other than the big defender, Liverpool should have no injury concerns.

A loss could see Liverpool’s hope of a title go up in flames. Gameweek 19 English Premier League is the Reds chance to solidify their claim for the title. It also marks the beginning of the team’s run of difficult fixtures.

Hull vs. Everton

Hull hosts Everton to kick-off the weekend. Hull are bottom of the table and have given up the most goals (39). The Tigers have also failed to score in five of their last seven fixtures.

On the other hand, Everton, have won two of their last three and are seventh in the table. Romelu Lukaku got back to scoring goals a week ago. Gameweek 19 English Premier League should see the Belgian terrorise the Tigers’ defence.

According to SkyBet, Everton are 11/10 to win.

Chelsea vs. Stoke

Chelsea have tallied 11 clean sheets this term, and gameweek 19 English Premier League should see the Blues add a 12th.

The team’s defence has been great and the return of Diego Costa should be more than enough to take down the Potters.

Stoke did take four of six points off of Chelsea last season. However, both teams are much different this term.

According to SkyBet, Chelsea are 1/4 to win.

Manchester United vs. Middlesbrough

Manchester United have finally found solid form under Jose Mourinho. Forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been scoring for fun as of late.

The two sides haven’t played each other since 2009 in the English Premier League. However, the Red Devils dominated the teams’ previous fixtures.

Manchester United’s biggest injury concern is Wayne Rooney, but the Englishman could return in time for a place on the bench against Middlesbrough.

According to SkyBet, Manchester United is 1/4 to win.

Watford vs. Tottenham

Tottenham have won all five fixtures between the two side dating back to 2007. Spurs have won four of their last five in the Premier League and are in good form.

Dele Alli has been playing exceptionally well. However, Harry Kane’s form continues to be a concern for Mauricio Pochettino.

Watford have only won once in their last six matches.

According to SkyBet, Tottenham are 7/10 to win.

Arsenal vs. Crystal Palace

After Arsenal’s two match losing streak, the Gunners got back to winning ways on Boxing Day. The Gunners are undefeated in the teams’ last six matches.

Crystal Palace’s new manager Sam Allardyce is looking for his first win as Eagles’ boss. Crystal Palace drew on Boxing Day with Watford and the new manager has a tough task against Arsenal.

The Gunners are currently in fourth place. A win this weekend coupled with Manchester City loss would see the Gunners move into third.

Theo Walcott and Shkodran Mustafi will both miss out due to injury.

According to SkyBet, Arsenal are 1/3 to win.
