Tottenham v Liverpool (12:30 BST)

Liverpool got here unstuck in opposition to Spurs at Wembley final season however I’ve a sense that each groups would possibly cancel one another out this time.

So I’m going to go for a draw.

Each groups are going properly, and I believe they’d each be glad sufficient for some extent.

Lawro’s prediction: 1-1

Mark’s prediction: 3-1

Match preview

Bournemouth v Leicester

Bournemouth suffered their first defeat of the season earlier than the worldwide break, taking place to two late Chelsea goals.

Leicester lost at home to Liverpool final day trip and there’s a little little bit of strain on Foxes boss Claude Puel although, just like the Cherries, they’ve made an honest begin.

It is a robust name. You understand that the Cherries will play attacking soccer, however I believe Leicester will get one thing from this one.

Lawro’s prediction: 1-1

Mark’s prediction: Bournemouth and Lie-ster Sq.? ah – Lie-ster Metropolis? Leicester Metropolis?

I do not know any of the Leicester Metropolis gamers however I’d say they win. 0-1

Match preview

Chelsea v Cardiff

Like Liverpool and Watford, Chelsea have gotten a 100% report from their first 4 league video games and I see that excellent begin persevering with right here.

Cardiff, in distinction, haven’t received but however I do not suppose their supervisor Neil Warnock shall be too involved, even when they lose once more on Saturday.

The large video games for the Bluebirds are in opposition to the groups which can be going to be round them in direction of the underside of the desk – something they get at Stamford Bridge is a bonus however they don’t wish to be on the tip of a heavy defeat.

I might count on the Welsh aspect to be very aggressive, however Chelsea can have an excessive amount of for them.

Lawro’s prediction: 3-0

Mark’s prediction: 1-2

Match preview

Huddersfield v Crystal Palace

The excellent news for Crystal Palace is that it seems to be like Wilfried Zaha is on his way back from his groin injury.
