GAME WEEK 26 PREVIEWS & PREDICTIONS
After an action packed game week it's yet again time for another. This game week however, we will be treated to 14 games with most of the teams playing twice. Liverpool and City both got important points whilst United drew against Southampton and then won against Brighton on Wednesday evening. This week sees City and Tottenham battle it out whilst the race at the bottom of the table is starting to get very heated. Buckle up and get ready!
GAME OF THE WEEKEND🤩
MANCHESTER CITY VS TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR
A few weeks ago it seemed as if this might be a really tough test for City but since then Spurs have lost their momentum and the honeymoon period with Conte has passed. They lost against Southampton 2 weeks ago and followed that up with another defeat against Wolves in their last game.
City put 4 past Norwich with Sterling netting a perfect hattrick. They defeated Sporting 5-0 away in the Champions League Round of 16 in midweek. They just simply look unstoppable!
Spurs won the first encounter this season 1-0 with Son scoring the winner. Can he replicate those heroics or will someone else step up and steel the show?
ONE TO WATCH: BERNARDO SILVA PREDICTION: 1-3
EASIEST 3 POINTS🤡
LIVERPOOL VS NORWICH CITY
The Reds will be extremely confident of claiming all 3 points against Norwich when they visit Anfield on Saturday. Norwich were on a great run of form until they met Liverpool's title rivals City.
Liverpool grinded out a hard fought 1-0 against Burnley at Turf Moor. They showed real fighting spirit in some severe weather conditions. They should be wary of the threat that Norwich posses.
The Cannaries won their last 2 games before City destroyed them 4-0. They were far from poor however and there were certainly some positives to take out of the game. Will they get something out of this game? Probably not.
ONE TO WATCH: ROBERTO FIRMINO PREDICTION: 3-0
CRYSTAL PALACE VS CHELSEA
I want to start of by congratulating Chelsea on winnig the Club World Cup! It's and excellent achievement and they certainly deserved it. The only problem is that all the games and travelling might just affect their form in the Premier League.
Palace are winless in their last 5 games and have been lacking the cutting edge in front of goal lately. Their forwards will need to be at their very best to exploit the Chelsea backline but this might be their best chance to claim a famous victory.

WHO SHOULD YOUR FANTASY CAPTAIN BE?
There are a host of players to choose from this week with a lot of clubs enjoying a double game week but Liverpool face both Norwich and Leeds. They are both extremely vulnerable defensively and this Liverpool attack can certainly exploit that. Salah is yet to score in the league since returning from AFCON but it's now certainly the time for him to reward his backers!
