Watford have been a rollercoaster ride producing the sublime and less sublime so far. They have been an open book scoring and conceding freely, the 3-3 draw with Bournemouth last time out a perfect example of their season. Crystal Palace are enjoying a welcome upturn with unlikely wins against Leicester, Manchester City and Wolves in their last five matches. Another win could put Palace nine points above the relegation zone. Javi Gracia should be worried, especially as the sole goalscoring burden has been lifted from Wilfired Zaha. Graham Searles

Chelsea v Newcastle: match preview

Chelsea will want to move on from their defeat in the League Cup and are likely to do just that against Newcastle. To do so Maurizio Sarri needs to figure out what is ailing his side considering their relative poor form since beating Manchester City in December. Newcastle could give him chance to experiment because Rafael Bentítez has a depleted squad through injury, players away on international duty and Kenedy ineligible against his parent club.

West Ham v Arsenal: match preview

The focus will be on Marko Arnautovic when West Ham host Arsenal. He has made it clear he wants West Ham to let him move to China and it will be fascinating to see if he is in the right frame of mind against Unai Emery’s side, who have welcomed Hector Bellerín, Shkodran Mustafi, Nacho Monreal and Mesut Özil back to training. Arsenal, who are pushing hard for a place in the top four, will hope the forward’s focus is elsewhere. Jacob Steinberg
