Crystal Palace v Burnley
What a turnaround it has been for Crystal Palace. From the bottom of the table and struggling to score a goal, let alone win a match, under Dutch boss Frank De Boer, the Eagles have soared to 14th under new boss Roy Hodgson.
The former Liverpool and England boss has faced plenty of criticism during his career but has proved his critics wrong here as he has made a huge difference to the London-based side’s season.
Saturday’s match against Burnley will be tough, but Hodgson will back a side that has impressed going forward. Wilfried Zaha is in the form of his life and with Christian Benteke starting to find the net again, there’s no reason why the Eagles can’t get three points against a very good Burnley side.

Chelsea v Leicester City
Chelsea manager Antonio Conte will be worried by his striker Alvaro Morata’s lack of goals lately. The Spanish striker got off to an excellent start to life in London but has registered just two goals in his last nine games.
A lack of goals has meant that Chelsea has drawn their last three games, including two goalless draws in their last two matches. Conte will be hoping to get the season back on track with a win against Leicester.
For Leicester boss Claude Puel, this is a chance to show off his tactical thinking. Puel sets his sides up well and likes to frustrate the opposition, but will know that his Leicester side will have their work cut out here. That said, with the pace they possess on the counter-attack, it may be their day at Stamford Bridge.
