Relegation battle takes centre stage: Gameweek 14 Preview

West Ham face a trip to fellow strugglers Everton with both teams desperate for maximum points.

With the 5 of the top 6 featuring in fixtures they would expect to win, our attention turns to a couple of big games in the lower half of the table. Bottom club Crystal Palace travel to the Amex Stadium to face 9th place Brighton knowing that a win will likely lift them off of the bottom of the table for the first time this season. Brighton themselves will be pleased with how they’ve started the season but will be eager to pick up points after just 1 from their last 2 games.

The other big game at the bottom of the league sees David Moyes return to his former club when West Ham travel to Goodison Park. Hammers fans will be hoping to see some signs of improvement under Moyes after disappointing displays in his first 2 outings.

City face Southampton and Pep’s men will be hoping for a more convincing display than last time out, while The Saints will be hoping their thumping win over Everton can give them the confidence to hand Guaridiola his first defeat of the season.

Arsenal and Chelsea will look to continue their good form with wins over Huddersfield and Swansea while Man Utd face a trip to a Watford side who are much improved under Marco Silva and Liverpool go to Stoke to find out if Mo Salah can do it on a cold Tuesday night there.

West Brom vs Newcastle and Bournemouth vs Burnley complete this set of midweek fixtures.
