Cardiff (19) v Brighton (12)

Glenn Murray is congratulated by his team-mates
Sporting Life's Premier League preview for Cardiff v Brighton
  • Cardiff are without the suspended Harry Arter, who serves a one-match ban for collecting five yellow cards. Fellow midfielder Joe Ralls is available after completing a three-match suspension and recovering from a chipped bone in his knee. Jazz Richards (hamstring) and Kenneth Zohore (calf) have joined Nathaniel Mendez-Laing (knee) and Lee Peltier (shoulder) on the sidelines, but striker Danny Ward is fit to start Neil Warnock's 100th game as Bluebirds manager.
  • Alireza Jahanbakhsh is a major doubt for Brighton after suffering a minor hamstring strain during last weekend's defeat to Everton and is likely to be unavailable. Midfielders Pascal Gross and Davy Propper (both ankle) remain sidelined, while back-up goalkeeper David Button (knee) is expected to miss out.

Last five league matches: Cardiff L L W L L; Brighton L W W W L

Top scorers (all competitions): Josh Murphy & Callum Paterson (Cardiff) 2; Glenn Murray (Brighton) 6

  • Palace boss Roy Hodgson reported no fresh injury concerns. Forward Christian Benteke continues his rehabilitation from knee surgery and has targeted a return early in the new year. Striker Connor Wickham and defender Joel Ward (both thigh) are also sidelined, along with Scott Dann (knee).
  • Tottenham will be without Mousa Dembele for the trip to Selhurst Park. The Belgium midfielder is out for the rest of 2018 with an ankle ligament injury and joins Danny Rose (groin) and Jan Vertonghen (hamstring) on the sidelines. Eric Dier (thigh) and Victor Wanyama (knee) are fit while Hugo Lloris returns to the squad following his Champions League suspension.

Huddersfield (18) v West Ham (13)

West Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini
Sporting Life's best bets for Huddersfield v West Ham
  • David Wagner is hoping to have a full-strength squad available. Midfielder Danny Williams is back in full training following a knee injury. Williams has yet to make a league appearance for the Terriers this season, while defender Terence Kongolo is expected to resume after returning from a hamstring strain in time to face Fulham.
  • West Ham have no fresh injury problems. Midfielder Pedro Obiang should be available after being substituted during last weekend's win over Burnley with a minor knee problem, but captain Mark Noble remains suspended following his red card against Leicester. Andy Carroll and Jack Wilshere (both ankle) could return following the international break, while Andriy Yarmolenko (Achilles), Carlos Sanchez, Manuel Lanzini and Winston Reid (all knee) continue their rehabilitation from injury.

Last five league matches: Huddersfield L D L L W; West Ham W L L D W

Top scorers (all competitions): Phillip Billing, Mathias Jorgensen, Christopher Schindler & Jon Stankovic (Huddersfield) 1; Marko Arnautovic (West Ham) 5

Leicester (10) v Burnley (15)

  • Harry Maguire and James Maddison will be absent for Leicester with knee injuries, and are also unavailable for England's forthcoming internationals. Matty James has resumed training after a long-term Achilles problem but this game will come too soon for him to be involved.
  • Burnley could be without England defender James Tarkowski. The 25-year-old has been struggling with a groin problem all season and saw a specialist on Thursday to determine whether he needs to have surgery. Fellow defender Ben Gibson will be sidelined for a few more weeks after undergoing a second hernia operation but Jack Cork and Phil Bardsley are fit to return after missing last weekend's defeat to West Ham.

Last five league matches: Leicester W L L D W; Burnley W D L L L

Top scorers (all competitions): James Maddison & Jamie Vardy (Leicester) 3; Ashley Barnes & Chris Wood (Burnley) 3

Match odds: H 52-100 A 11-2 D 16-5

Referee: Mike Dean (Wirral)

Newcastle (17) v Bournemouth (6)

Rafael Benitez: Newcastle boss
Read our betting preview for Newcastle v Bournemouth
  • Newcastle are likely to be without Jamaal Lascelles (shoulder), Jonjo Shelvey (muscular problem) and Yoshinori Muto (calf). All left the pitch during last weekend's 1-0 win over Watford and although Lascelles has done some light training, the other two have not and all three are major doubts. Manager Rafael Benitez otherwise has only defender Florian Lejeune on the long-term casualty list as he continues his recovery from a knee ligament injury.
  • Bournemouth will hand a late fitness test to Joshua King. The Norway international has missed the Cherries' last three matches due to an ankle injury but has returned to training this week. Manager Eddie Howe has no fresh selection issues.

Last five league matches: Newcastle L L L D W; Bournemouth W W D W L

Top scorers (all competitions): Joselu (Newcastle) 2; Callum Wilson (Bournemouth) 7

Southampton (16) v Watford (8)

Mark Hughes: Stoke boss
Our best bets for Southampton v Watford

Southampton defender Wesley Hoedt could miss out after suffering a foot infection. He will face a late fitness test. Midfielder Mario Lemina is expected to be available despite tightness in a thigh muscle.

Watford captain Troy Deeney is set to make his comeback after missing three games due to a hamstring issue. Sebastian Prodl (hamstring) and Daryl Janmaat (knee) remain sidelined, and Etienne Capoue is suspended. Tom Cleverley, out since January due to a combination of hamstring and Achilles problems, is back in training but will not be involved in this match.

Welbeck (ankle) is expected to be sidelined for some time after being taken to hospital following an awkward fall, while Lichtsteiner limped out with a muscular issue. Mohamed Elneny (thigh) and Konstantinos Mavropanos (groin) are still missing, while Matteo Guendouzi is back in domestic contention after serving a one-match ban.
  • Diogo Jota could return for Wolves after shaking off a hamstring injury. The forward is fit for Sunday's trip after missing last weekend's 3-2 defeat to Tottenham at Molineux.

Last five league matches: Arsenal W W W D D; Wolves W W L L L

Top scorers (all competitions): Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Arsenal) 9; Raul Jimenez (Wolves) 3

Sporting Life's Premier League match preview

  • Alvaro Morata, Marcos Alonso, David Luiz, Antonio Rudiger and N'Golo Kante are expected to start for Chelsea. Morata, Alonso, Luiz and Rudiger were rested from the Europa League trip to face BATE Borisov and stayed in London, while Kante was an unused substitute after receiving a late call-up due to Cesc Fabregas' illness. Fabregas is a doubt for the Toffees game, while Ruben Loftus-Cheek may not feature after a back complaint which boss Maurizio Sarri described as minor.
  • Everton forward Richarlison , who rolled his ankle early in last weekend's 3-1 win over Brighton but played the full duration and scored twice, will be assessed ahead of the match. With on-loan defender Kurt Zouma ineligible against his parent club, there could be a first Toffees start for fellow summer signing Yerry Mina. Phil Jagielka and James McCarthy are available.

Last five league matches: Chelsea D W D W W; Everton W W W L W

Top scorers (all competitions): Eden Hazard (Chelsea) 8; Richarlison & Gylfi Sigurdsson (Everton) 6

  • Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson and fellow midfielder Naby Keita are both available. The pair have been sidelined for a number of weeks due to hamstring injuries but will be included in the squad alongside defender Joe Gomez, who has been struggling with an Achilles issue recently. Xherdan Shaqiri will also come into contention having been left at home for the Champions League trip to Red Star Belgrade in an attempt to reduce local hostilities.
  • Fulham are expected to be without Kevin McDonald and Joe Bryan, who are both struggling with hamstring injuries and likely to miss out. Cottagers boss Slavisa Jokanovic is expected to make further changes to his team following their disappointing defeat at Huddersfield on Monday.

Last five league matches: Liverpool D D W W D; Fulham L L L L L

Top scorers (all competitions): Sadio Mane & Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) 7; Aleksandar Mitrovic (Fulham) 5

  • Manchester City have no fresh injury concerns. Captain Vincent Kompany and full-back Benjamin Mendy are back in contention after being left out for the midweek victory over Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League. Playmaker Kevin De Bruyne (knee) and second-choice goalkeeper Claudio Bravo (Achilles) are City's only major absentees.
  • Romelu Lukaku could return to action for Manchester United after he missed the trips to Bournemouth and Juventus with a hamstring complaint. He will be assessed as the striker steps up training. Diogo Dalot has been out with an injury sustained during the international break, while captain Antonio Valencia is back in contention having travelled to Turin.

Last five league matches: Man City W D W W W; Man Utd L W D W W
