Everton v Manchester City 12.45pm
The Toffees don’t appear to be as bombproof as they were earlier in the season, and Manchester City could well be coming up against them just at the right time. City have appeared to step up a gear in the last month or so, and while all games are sure to be tough at Goodison Park, the Citizens have momentum and form on their side.
Everton’s shocking 3-0 loss last weekend against Wigan in the FA Cup is sure to be playing on Davis Moyes’ mind, while all appears to be rosy in th eblue half of Manchester at present, and Reberto Mancini will be doing his best to narrow the chasm between them and their city rivals.

Southampton v Liverpool 3.00pm
Southampton have done a sterling job in their first season in the top flight and have taken points from some big clubs, but that hasn’t been enough to steer them clear of the relegation battle.
However, at the odds it may be worth siding with a Liverpool team that are in top form with 4 straight wins in all competitions which include drubbings of Swansea (5-0) and Wigan (4-0) as well as a hard fought 3-2 victory over Spurs last weekend.
Luis Suarez has been a handful all season, but with other players now starting to perform, Liverpool are finally playing football worthy of a possible European place next season.

Aston Villa v QPR 3.00pm
Harry Redknapp has instilled a little bit of fight into Queens Park Rangers and the players will believe they have what it takes to pull them off of bottom spot come Saturday evening. Back to back wins over Southampton (2-1) and Sunderland (3-1) have given them renewed hope that they can escape the drop.
Aston Villa earned a much needed win over Reading last weekend to remain just outside the relegation zone, but I’m taking the Hoops to continue their winning run at Villa Park and force their way out of the dreaded drop zone.
