We are set for a double-bill of weeknight thrillers in the Premier League this week where a boisterous Tottenham Hotspur travel to Anfield, Chelsea host Everton and several sides could be sentenced to a definite relegation dog fight. Check out our predictions below.
Arsenal 2 - 0 Leicester
Arsenal will be absolutely rueing the chance to beat Spurs in the dinner time kick-off on Saturday but a certain in-form Harry Kane was on standby for the home side to drown the Gunners' hopes.
Arsene Wenger will see this home fixture against Leicester as a must-win situation as the demand for a Champions League this season has become staggeringly high. Alexis Sanchez may be unavailable for the third successive league game but I would expect Olivier Giroud and Danny Welbeck to cover for the Chilean.
The visitors suffered the same fate on Saturday, also, when James McArthur's header dampened hopes of elevating from the foot of the table, giving Crystal Palace a huge boost away from the danger zone.
The Nigel Pearson rumours that are circulating certainly wont help the Foxes and a trip to the Emirates is probably the last thing on the manager's wish list. I can't really see where Leicester's goals will come from and Arsenal seem to have sorted themselves out defensively.

Hull City 1 - 0 Aston Villa
The stakes for this tie are absolutely huge - the loser is subject to a relegation fight. Hull picked up a monumental point at Manchester City at the weekend and they were really unlucky not to come away with all three.
They will be relieved that Aston Villa finally found the back of the net against Chelsea because that means the urgency to score isn't as intense for Paul Lambert's side.
If the Tigers defend in the same manner as they did against the likes of Samir Nasri and Sergio Aguero, they will keep the visitors quiet all night long.
Sunderland 2 - 1 QPR
It really isn't going to plan for Queens Park Rangers. The loss of their manager, Charlie Austin's poor goalscoring form of late and yet another damaging defeat to Southampton has drawn more clouds over Loftus Road concerning the future of the Hoops in the Premier League.
As for Sunderland, Jermain Defoe looks to be their guardian angel. The January signing has already netted twice in three appearances and you can see the former Spurs forward going on an almighty run.
QPR's away form is utterly abysmal with no points on the road at all and they certainly won't be getting that record off their back at the Stadium Of Light.
Liverpool 1 - 2 Tottenham Hotspur
Saturday drew a broad line between the intensity of both the North London and Merseyside derbies in this day in age and there was only one man who sculpted that line himself; the one and only Harry Kane. It's only a matter of time before Roy Hodgson gives the youngster a call up to the England squad and until then, the forward will continue to score goals for fun.
Raheem Sterling is the brightest prospect for Liverpool in terms of goalscoring and his plain performance against Everton will have taken a huge knock to his confidence and I can see him hitting a drought.
The Reds may score a lucky goal but the sheer quality of Harry Kane should see him on the scoresheet again to end Spurs' long run without a victory against Liverpool.
