Brentford FC vs. Tottenham Hotspur
English top flight action resumes with a London Derby between 10th place Brentford and 4th place Tottenham Hotspur. In their last game before the World Cup break, Thomas Frank’s men stunned Champions Manchester City, earning a 2-1 win at the Etihad Stadium. That victory, put the Citizens 5 points behind leaders Arsenal and gave Brentford another giant-killing tag having thumped Man United 4-0 earlier on this season. Here, they will be hoping to pick up where they left off and gun for all 3 points.
For Spurs, this is another stern test in their quest for a top 4 finish this season. Given Newcastle’s resurgence and the quality of other contenders, the top four race this season will certainly be highly competitive. Hence, every game and every point is crucial. Based on this, we expect Conte’s men to build on their current run of 2 wins in the last 2 games and pick all 3 points here. They head into this tie knowing victory would put push them into 3rd place just before Newcastle’s trip to King Power Stadium.

Frank Lampard’s Everton will resume league football action when they welcome Wolves to the Goodison Park on Boxing Day. Having suffered initial wobbles at the start of the season, Everton’s Amadou Onana, Idrissa Gueye and Alex Iwobi helped galvanize the Toffees to secure some crucial points, most notably in the Merseyside derby. However, a run of 3 league defeats in the last 5 before the World Cup break has put Everton a point above the red line. To avoid more woes, earning victory here is crucial.
Meanwhile, having parted ways with Bruno Lage, Wolves begin life in the Premier League under new man Julen Lopetegui. The Spaniard is taking over at a critical time as Wolves are bottom of the log with just 2 wins in 15 games. To have any hopes of surviving the drop, Wolves must avoid defeat here.

When he took over from Graham Potter, Roberto Dizerbi waited 6 games before earning his first Premier League win. Interestingly, that 4-1 win inflicted Graham Potter’s first defeat in charge of Chelsea, ending the Seagulls’ run of 4 losses and 2 draws. Expectedly, that victory spurred Brighton into a better form as they went on to earn 3 wins in the next 3 games. Unfortunately, that run was halted in a 2-1 home loss to Aston Villa, their last action before the break. Here, Brighton will look to recover from that defeat and return to winning ways.

To avert being caught up in battle for survival, West Ham must rejig their form as soon as possible.
