Manchester United host Arsenal in the English Premier League headline fixture on Saturday afternoon. The Red Devils sit six points behind Arsenal, who are looking to get back to winning ways after drawing in the North London Derby the last time out.

Last season’s fixture between the two at Old Trafford saw Manchester United come out 3-2 winners thanks to a Marcus Rashford man of the match performance. The Red Devils are unbeaten in 12 of their last 13 home matches with Arsenal in all competitions. Can Jose Mourinho continue his voodoo over Arsene Wenger? History says yes.

Manchester United host Arsenal in the big match of the weekend. Bet365 has Arsenal at 2/1 to win at Old Trafford.

Crystal Palace v Manchester City

Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City travel to Selhurst Park to play Crystal Palace. Manchester City have won 10 of their last 11 matches against Alan Pardew’s side. The Crystal Palace boss maybe on borrowed time at Selhurst Park as the Eagles have lost four straight matches. City have drawn three of their last four Premier League gamesĀ and are looking for a win to keep pace with first place Liverpool

Southampton v Liverpool

Top of the table Liverpool head to the south coast to play Southampton on Saturday. The Saints defeated Liverpool last season on the south coast, 3-2, and took four points from the Reds overall. Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho will face a late fitness test as he has returned from international duty with a knock. Adam Lallana is in the same boat and is said to be 50% likely to feature. The Reds have won seven of their last eight matches, and confidence is running high under Jurgen Klopp going into gameweek 12.

Sunderland v Hull City

Sunderland have the opportunity to win their second match of the season after a win in gameweek 11. They will take on Hull City who have given up the Premier League’s most goals this term (24). The clash between the two is the cliched six-pointer, but if Sunderland want to play another season in the Premier League they must win on Saturday. The Tigers have history on their side as they have won five of their last six against Sunderland.

Everton v Swansea

Everton host Swansea as Bob Bradley’s job as Swans’ boss hangs by a thread. Swansea is winless since Bradley took over and have lost three of four since he took charge. On the other hand, Everton are looking to bounce back from a 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Chelsea in gameweek 11. Swansea are unbeaten against Everton in five straight. However, the Swans’ defence is rather porous and have given up at least two goals in five of their last six fixtures.

Tottenham v West Ham

Tottenham host West Ham in Saturday’s final kick-off. Spurs have been unable to score goals in their last four matches, drawing all four, including gameweek 11’s North London Derby. Spurs have a three game, eight day stretch coming up. Mauricio Pochettino is unsure Harry Kane will be fit enough to play in all three fixtures and could only feature sparingly on Saturday. Meanwhile, West Ham are undefeated in four of five and sit one point above the relegation zone.

Middlesbrough v Chelsea

Chelsea could be without Eden Hazard on Sunday’s trip to the Riverside Stadium as the Belgian returned from international duty banged up. However, Chelsea are in top shape at the moment as they come off of gameweek 11’s 5-0 win over Everton. The Blues have won six straight fixtures against Middlesbrough dating back to 2007. In addition, Chelsea have kept five clean sheets in their last five Premier League matches.
