Chelsea faces Fulham, Arsenal hosts Tottenham, and Liverpool takes on Everton in three high-profile Premier League derbies this weekend, while the Man City juggernaut shows no signs of slowing down.

Leicester vs. WatfordSaturday, 10 a.m. ET

This should prove to be an open, entertaining game between two teams that like to commit men forwards and attack. Leicester playmaker James Maddison was sent off as the Foxes drew 101 away at Brighton on Saturday, extending their unbeaten run to four games. He will be available for this clash as his suspension only covers the midweek Carabao Cup tie against Southampton, and he has the ability to cause Watford plenty of problems. The pace of Jamie Vardy and Kelechi Iheanacho will also worry the Hornets’ backline, but Watford looks good going forward, too. The likes of Gerard Deulofeu and Roberto Pereyra are full of trickery and invention, and Leicester concedes a goal per game at home, so they will fancy their chances of scoring. "Both teams to score" is -133 with Bet365 and that looks interesting.

Manchester City vs. BournemouthSaturday, 10 a.m. ET

Pep Guardiola’s men are on fire at the moment and a 4-0 victory over West Ham on Saturday was their eighth win on the bounce. They have simply been blowing teams away, banging in 19 goals in their last four games, and they should rip apart a shaky Bournemouth backline. The Cherries have lost three in a row and they are in danger of sliding down the table as their immediate fixture list looks perilous. They lack the defensive nous to contain City in this game and a heavy home win looks in the cards. Man City -2.5 Asian handicap is -120 with Bet365 and they should be able to cover it as they have been in such sensational form of late.

Chelsea vs. FulhamSunday, 7 a.m. ET

West London rivals Chelsea and Fulham lock horns in the first of three massive Premiership derbies Sunday. Chelsea’s confidence took a knock as they lost 3-1 to Spurs on Sunday, and Fulham will bid to capitalize. The Cottagers have been galvanized by the arrival of Claudio Ranieri as manager, and he made the perfect start to his reign by leading them to a 3-2 win against Southampton at the weekend. They attacked with pace and purpose throughout, and they could cause a struggling Chelsea backline a few problems. "Both teams to score" is +100 with Bet365 and William Hill.

Arsenal vs. TottenhamSunday, 9:05 a.m. ET

Tempers are sure to flare up as these bitter north London rivals tangle at The Emirates. Arsenal is unbeaten in 17 games and they are just a single point behind fourth-place Spurs in the table. But Tottenham is also in fine form, having put together five consecutive wins. One thing that could benefit Arsenal is that Spurs will be coming off a huge Champions League game against Inter Milan on Wednesday whereas Arsenal can afford to rest their first-team stars for their dead rubber of a Europa League tie Thursday. Arsenal should therefore be fresher and enjoy home advantage, so the +155 at Pinnacle on a win for the Gunners looks attractive. But a better wagering option might be "both teams to score" and "over" 2.5 goals at -133, as this should be an intense, fiery clash.

Liverpool vs. EvertonSunday, 11:15 a.m. ET

Liverpool has a huge Champions League game against PSG in midweek, whereas Everton can rest all week in preparation for this Merseyside contest. However, there is a considerable gulf in quality between these two sides and Liverpool should still be able to pick up a routine victory over their neighbors. Liverpool -1.25 Asian handicap is priced at -129 with Bet365 and that looks like a good price. Mohamed Salah looks back to his best and some sportsbooks have a tempting -120 on the Egyptian forward to "score at any time" in this game. His pace can cause the Everton backline all manner of problems, and that should be enough to tip this one in the Reds’ favor.
