They will be hoping to take all three when they come up against Newcastle this weekend as they look to continue their revival under Guus Hiddink. Newcastle who sit 17th in the league will hope to distance themselves away from the drop zone, as they try to continue the good form they showed against West Brom on Saturday.

Norwich V West Ham – Saturday 13th February 16 – 15.00

Norwich sit 18th in the league and are in very poor form, losing their last five matches. They will need to bounce back against West Ham if they are going to have any chance of saving themselves from Championship football next season. As for West Ham, they will look to push for a Europa League place next season, as they look to continue the good form they showed against Liverpool in the FA Cup midweek.

Aston Villa V Liverpool – Sunday 14th February 16 – 14.05

Jurgen Klopps’ Liverpool will be hoping to see an improvement in their form, as they have only won one game in their last six.

Both teams will be fighting for the win, as both are desperate for the three points. This looks like a very feisty fixture.
