For Tottenham Hotspur, it is expected that Toby Alderweireld will be back in contention for a start against the 20-time English Premier League champions. "Overall I'm very happy with the way we behave and with the consistency of our desire". West Ham welcome back Aaron Cresswell and Michail Antonio after groin strains.

With England worldwide goalkeeper Tom Heaton set to return, Burnley may well pick up another vital three points that could go a long way in preserving their Premier League status for next season.

Chelsea produced the most impressive display of their winning streak last weekend when they came from behind to win 3-1 at Pep Guardiola's Manchester City.

The Premier League enters the 15th gameweek this season and the drama and tension is set to resume.

When Alexis Sanchez posed for a selfie with a group of ball-boys after his hat-trick in Arsenal's 5-1 win at West Ham on Saturday (Dec 3), it was the closest anyone connected to the Hammers had managed to get to the Chile forward all evening.

While most of Chelsea's title rivals have been in European action this week, Conte's side have once again had a full week to prepare for the visit of Tony Pulis's side.


'But they're looking stronger than they've looked in a long time, especially defensively.

Mike Phelan's men lacked any cutting edge in attack against Middlesbrough in a dire Monday night encounter, but will be encouraged by the fact Palace haven't kept a clean sheet away from home in the league since they played Bournemouth on St Stephen's Day previous year.

The ill-tempered defeat at Chelsea's hands left a mark, with Sergio Aguero and Fernandinho picking up red cards that will keep them out until after Christmas. If we play like we did against Chelsea or Celtic, we are going to do good things.


PALACE ENDED THEIR run of six straight league defeats with a morale-boosting win against Southampton last weekend, and Alan Pardew's side will fancy their chances of achieving their first back-to-back Premier League wins since September on Saturday.

They haven't been able to pick up results in the Premier League and are now just a couple of points off the relegation zone.

And do not forget to check back in here at midnight on Sunday for goals from Chelsea v West Brom, Manchester United v Tottenham, Southampton v Middlesbrough and Liverpool v West Ham. They've never won three consecutively in the league over Liverpool.
