The 16th gameweek of English Premier League will be played in the midweek: the first two matches Bournemouth-Leicester and Everton-Arsenal are scheduled on Tuesday evening both at 20:45 CET.

 

West Ham have changed stadium since the beginning of the current season.

Leaving Boleyn Ground has revealed to be a great economic move but at the same time the team has lost the big advantage to play surrounded by the hot atmosphere in a stadium full of history and tradition, and indeed Hammers' home results have not been brilliant so far.
Luckily West Ham face Burnley which have been struggling in away matches having collected only 1 point from their 6 away games, showing clear lacks in organization but mainly in personality.
Visitors have good offensive skills, often showed in home matches but their problems when playing away are evident: 1 goal scored and 15 conceded from their 6 away matches are simply too many and for that reason we set West Ham as favourite in a match were some goals are expected as both defenses committ too many mistakes and it is time for Burnley to show they can score away fromTurf Moor too.

 

Special match for Stoke's coach Mark Hughes who stacks up his 400th appearance as a Premier League manager against Southampton and his players will try to celebrate the event with a win over The Saints which have only collected 2 points from their latest 4 away matches.
Sunday's win over Middlesbrough gave Saints the chance to turn the page after the elimination from Europa League but next clash at Britannia Stadium is expected to be hard for them.
Stoke, indeed have showed good signals lately, they still can not score with ease but at least defensive phase has improved (exception made for the 3-1 defeat againt Arsenal).
Southampton have collected 6 UNDER 2.5 GOALS from their latest 7 matches and indeed we do not see a lot of goals here and we set home side as favourite although odds smile to The Saints.

 

Looking back at the past season, Tottenham have made a step backward probably mainly due to a mediocre transfermarket: the defeat occurred at Old Trafford vs Manchester United has further distanced Spurs from the top end of the table.
Pochettino's men have also disappointed he expectations in Champions League where they have been eliminated in the group stage and the Europa League qualification can not be seen as a satisfying result so far,  but in this midweek round Spurs should get the three points as they meet Hull, penalized by several kind of problems and involved in the fight for the relegation.
We expect a good performance from Harry Kane who has recently solved his physical problems and has started to score again.

 

West Brom have done a great season so far: they are close to the top end of the table and a big merit goes to the coach, Tony Pulis, who has made sport miracles with medium-low level teams several times already.
Baggies gave hard times to Chelsea in Stamford Bridge one week ago. They had kept the 0-0 for 76 minutes when Diego Costa took advantage of a mistake by Gareth Mc Auley and scored the winner.
Swansea have appeared to be in a decent form, especially in home matches but they are still struggling too much when playing away where they have obtained only 4 points so far.
Home side favourite.

 

Liverpool have only obtained 1 point from their latest 2 matches, Chelsea is 6 points far and a win would be extremely important for Klopp's men.
The problem is that Liverpool meet a very tough team, Middlesbrough, a team wih a good defensive organization: indeed they have collected 9 UNDER 2.5 goals in their latest 10 matches.
Middlesbrough mainly rely on the defense, while the attacking phase has not showed great things so far and the absences of Ramirez and Negredo are important.
These 2 absences force Boro to stay on the defensive and although the opponents are Liverpool who usually tend to score a lot of goals, the idea UNDER 3.5 goals sounds nice.
Another interesting thing to consider is that home side will probably committ a lot of tactical fouls in order to make Liverpool manouvers a bit less intense and that could result in a higher number of yellow cards among Middlesbrough players.

 

Manchester City have conceded 4 goals to Leicester in the previous round and the team has been unable to keep a clean shet for the 16th time in their latest 17 matches.
Better to avoid the home win against Watford: odds are too low, Aguero is still suspended and Guardiola's men have only won 4 of their latest official matches, and in their stadium only 1 win in the latest 6 games (against Barcelona).
Guardiola's ideas of football are not revealing good for english football, or at least, the spaniard still can not count on a team able to put into practise what he preaches, starting from the goalie, Bravo (wasn't better Hart?) and going on with Stones still too unexperienced to play at high levels in such a delicate role since the team constantly keeps a very high baricenter.
On the other side Waftford players have understood Mazzarri's game: counterattacks, change sides and the insertions of Capoue and Pereyra can really give hard times to Citizens' defense but in the end we set Mnchester City as favourite: Guardiola and supporters are expecting a strong reaction from the players and although all the difficulties of the moment an home win is on the cards in a match  where goals should not be missing.

 

Chelsea have won 9 Premier League matches in a row and we can not see any reason why the series should stop against Sunderland, last team in the lague table with 11 points.
Actually Moyes'men have collected good results lately having won 3 times in their latest 5 matches, but in our opinion they are still too weak to face Conte's 3-4-3.
Chelsea have showed a big patience in facing weaker teams with the tendency to stay on the defensive such as Middlesbrough and West Brom, getting the 3 points with the minimum score in both occasions.
We expect a similar attitude from Sundarland players but in our opinion their defense is less organized than Boro and West Brom and would not be a surprise to see Chelsea score twice or more considering also the great forms of Diego Costa and Hazard.
