Norwich are in-form coming into this one having won two of their last three matches while holding Wolverhampton Wanderers to a 0-0 draw last time out, and Dean Smith is already having a massive impact at Carrow Road. As for the hosts, boss Eddie Howe will be hungry to get the Magpies their first win of the season and this fixture presents a perfect opportunity for three points.

Leeds United v Crystal Palace

Both these sides turned in poor performances at the weekend and will look for an immediate response on Tuesday evening.

Southampton v Leicester

Southampton will be looking to bounce back from their 4-0 defeat against Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday, but they will be wary of Leicester’s attacking threat as they fired four past Watford last time out, with Jamie Vardy bagging a brace.

Watford v Chelsea

Claudio Ranieri’s side will look to solidify their defence after conceding four goals to his former club Leicester at the weekend.

West Ham fell to a second consecutive defeat at the hands of Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City on Sunday, but they still remain in the top four and will want to keep hold of their position. David Moyes will see Brighton as a good game to get back to winning ways, seeing as the Seagulls have not won in their last eight league games. But Graham Potter’s side turned in a very strong performance in their 0-0 draw against Leeds at the weekend, which they should have comfortably won. They will feel that they can give the high-flying Hammers a game.

Wolverhampton Wanderers v Burnley

Wolves will have been frustrated with their 0-0 stalemate with Norwich at the weekend and will look to make amends when they host Burnley.

Guardiola’s men will know they could potentially leapfrog Chelsea with a victory and they will want to continue building their momentum heading into the Christmas period.
