Where is it being played? Old Trafford

At long last we will be able to catch a glimpse of Ralf Rangnick in his Man Utd suit when the Red Devils welcome out-of-form Crystal Palace to Old Trafford on Sunday.

The German has opted to pick the same side that beat Arsenal 3-2 in the final game of Michael Carrick’s caretaker spell in charge, and will hope that the famed ‘new manager bounce’ will inspire his players to victory against a Palace side who have progressed nicely under Patrick Vieira.

If United play to their strengths, they should win.

Prediction: Man Utd 2-0 Crystal Palace

After getting off to a flying start, Brentford are slowly being dragged into the relegation mire, while Leeds are yet properly click into gear this season.

Both these sides love to attack with pace and purpose, which should lead to an entertaining game in which the spoils are shared.

Tottenham have showed signs of reigniting their season under Antonio Conte in recent times and they have a great chance to keep up the momentum when lowly Norwich City come to town on Sunday.

Harry Kane will be itching to score in this one, having endured a poor campaign in front of goal thus far.

Prediction: Tottenham 2-0 Norwich

Where is the match being played? Villa Park

The curtain comes down on Sunday’s action with a Midlands derby between Aston Villa and Leicester City.

Villa’s revival under Steven Gerrard took a hit on Wednesday when Manchester City beat them 2-1, while Leicester’s poor finishing saw them draw 2-2 with Southampton. Expect a similarly tight game, but Gerrard’s men may just edge it.

Prediction: Aston Villa 2-1 Leicester

Where is the match being played? Goodison Park

Rounding off this weekend’s Premier League action is Everton vs Arsenal on Monday evening. The Toffees are on a horrid run of form, making the much-improved Gunners favourites here.

If Everton do lose again, Rafa Benitez could be in serious danger of getting the boot.

Prediction: Everton 0-2 Arsenal

West Ham 3-2 Chelsea

A month on from beating Liverpool and failing to win any of their next three domestic matches, an impressive West Ham claimed the scalp of another Premier League title contender when Arthur Masuaku scored a bizarre late winner that looked like a mishit cross.

Thiago Silva put Chelsea into the lead just under half an hour in, but that lead was erased by Manuel Lanzini from the penalty spot. Mason Mount made it 2-1 in the closing stages of the first half, but again the Hammers got back level through Jarrod Bowen.

Masuaku’s decisive goal came with three minutes of the 90 remaining and condemned Chelsea to only their second Premier League defeat of the season.

Newcastle 1-0 Burnley

Newcastle finally won a Premier League game at the 15th time of asking this season when a single Callum Wilson goal was enough to see off Burnley at St James’ Park.

Wilson was quickest to react to a spill from Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope in the closing stages of the first half and it proved to be enough for the three points because the Clarets didn’t really mount much threat of their own other than a lot of shots off target.

Pope actually had to be on top form later on to prevent Newcastle extending their lead.

Southampton 1-1 Brighton

Southampton were denied victory in this clash of the Premier League’s south coast clubs by a dramatic and controversial 98th minute equaliser.

The Saints had led for more than an hour of play at St Mary’s thanks to a first half goal from Armando Broja, but they were unable to build on that lead and it left them vulnerable.

The reason for 10 minutes of stoppage time was Leandro Trossard’s lengthy treatment before being stretchered off late on, while Southampton appealed the equaliser because one of their players was down needing treatment when it was scored.

Wolves 0-1 Liverpool

Liverpool dominated possession and had 17 shots against Wolves. But only five of those efforts were on target and but for a 94th minute winner from cult hero Divock Origi they were about to be embarrassed.

Liverpool should have scored several long before they did but were denied by a combination of heroic Wolves defending and wayward finishing.

Defeat was harsh on Wolves, who thought they had done enough to earn a point.

Watford 1-3 Man City

Manchester City will finish the weekend top of the Premier League thanks to their win over Watford combined with Chelsea’s defeat to West Ham earlier in the day.

Bernardo Silva was the star man again for the reigning champions, scoring twice in the 3-1 victory. Raheem Sterling got the first early on and it was 3-0 before Cucho Hernandez was able to pull back a consolation strike for Watford.

The Hornets have come crashing back to earth since thrashing Manchester United last month, with this now a third defeat on the spin.
