Swansea v Stoke
Swansea are unbeaten in their last five home games against Stoke (W4 D1 L0).
Stoke have won just one of their last six Premier League matches (W1 D2 L3).
Gylfi Sigurdsson is only the third player to reach double figures for goal assists this season (10) after Cesc Fabregas and Angel Di Maria
Both these teams have little to play for being in mid-table but I think the home advantage will help Swansea prevail.
Verdict : Swansea @ 2.40 at Bookie Bet365

Gabriel Agbonlahor has scored seven goals against Everton, more than he has mustered against any other opponent in the Barclays Premier League.

Leicester v Newcastle
Newcastle United have won five and lost none of the last nine league matches against Leicester City.

Verdict : Draw @ 3.81 at Bookie Bet3000
Sunderland v Southampton
Ronald Koeman’s side have picked up just one point from their last four Premier League away matches.
According to my system this match has the potential to be a ‘shock’ result of the weekend. There aren’t many stats to support this forecast but stats are just that – stats. My system considers all factors and variables.
Southampton odds are bad value which sometimes means that the other teams’ odds represent value.
My system is both subjective and objective whilst also using data that is both qualitative and quantitative.
Verdict : Sunderland @ 4.25 at Bookie Betsafe
