Chelsea look to extend their Premier League lead in gameweek 15 as Antonio Conte’s Blues clash with West Brom.

The Blues currently sit three points clear at the top of the Premier League table, having lost merely once this term. Chelsea’s record against West Brom in their last six isn’t anything special, however.┬áThe Blues have won just twice in their last six meetings with the Baggies.

The good news is Chelsea haven’t lost to West Brom in their last 10 meetings at Stamford Bridge. Don’t expect West Brom to leave with three points in this one.

Chelsea are 2/7 on Bet365 to win.

Arsenal vs. Stoke

Arsenal sit in second in the Premier League. The Gunners are undefeated in their last three matches against Stoke. Arsenal should have their big guns ready for the clash at the Emirates as Santi Cazorla and Hector Bellerin are the only players set to miss due to injury.

Meanwhile, Stoke have several players missing through injury. Marko Arnautovic, Geoff Cameron and Ryan Shawcross are all question marks.

Leicester vs. Manchester City

Losers of three of their last four, Leicester are in a bad way in the English Premier League. The Foxes are in a relegation scrap and could find themselves in the bottom three by weekend’s end.

Despite dropping four of six points to Leicester last season, the Blues have improved. The team will be without Sergio Aguero after his sending off last weekend. Meanwhile, Raheem Sterling is only 75% likely to play due to injury.

Although City picked up a mere one point against Leicester last term, Pep Guardiola’s team have won four of six against them.

Manchester United vs. Tottenham

Manchester United have drawn four of their last five Premier League games. Jose Mourinho’s side has had difficulty turning draws into wins this term. The Red Devils have already drawn six matches in 2016-17.

Two of the last six meetings between the two clubs have ended in draws. Spurs won at Old Trafford in 2014, but have only secured victory once in the teams’ last four meetings.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been in great form scoring twice in Manchester United’s last two games. He has improved greatly in Fantasy Premier League as of late.

On the other side, Spurs have Harry Kane in excellent form. The striker struck twice in gameweek 14, helping him equal his season high in FPL single game points.

Liverpool vs. West Ham

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool received a major setback in gameweek 14. The Reds’ loss to Bournemouth hurts the team’s chances at their first Premier League title.

Unfortunately for Liverpool, the Reds have been incredibly poor against West Ham in recent time. Liverpool have won just once in their last six meetings with the Hammers.

Sadio Mane and Joel Matip are both recovering from injuries. Although, Mane has been passed fit, however. Meanwhile, Daniel Sturridge is also battling an injury and may not play a part in Sunday’s game.

West Ham have lost three of their last five, including last weekend’s 5-1 thumping to Arsenal. The Hammers have struggled all season and currently sit just one point ahead of the bottom three.

Despite the injuries, Liverpool have to be favoured when the Hammers arrive at Anfield on Sunday.
