1.Sheffield Wednesday vs. Derby County
Sheffield Wednesday and Derby County square off in the Championship on New Year's Day with just three points separating the clubs in the Championship standings.
Despite currently occupying 22nd position, the Owls will move out of the relegation zone and above the Rams if they can record maximum points at Hillsborough.
After their surprise win over Middlesbrough, Wednesday will be confident of causing another surprise. However, we cannot ignore Derby's outstanding away form in recent weeks, leading us to predict a narrow away victory for the East Midlands side.
Prediction: Sheffield Wednesday 1-2 Derby
2.Everton vs. West Ham United
Everton head into their encounter with West Ham United on New Year's Day looking to extend their winning streak in the Premier League to five matches.
Meanwhile, the Hammers make the trip to Goodison Park on the back of four matches without success, a run which has left the East London team in 10th position.
Having been provided with an unexpected rest earlier this week, Everton should be far sharper than a Hammers side which have played twice since their last outing. With that in mind, we are backing the Toffees to edge this game with a goal in the latter stages.
Prediction: Everton 2-1 West Ham United
3.Manchester United vs. Aston Villa
Manchester United play host to Aston Villa on Friday night looking to extend their unbeaten record in the Premier League to 10 matches.
Meanwhile, Villa travel to Old Trafford knowing that victory will move them to within one point of their second-placed opponents in the standings.
Having performed so impressively during the second half at Chelsea, Villa will fancy their chances of taking more points off their rivals for a European place. However, having more options to rotate will help Solskjaer, and the home side should have enough quality to outlast their in-form opponents.
Prediction: Manchester United 2-1 Aston Villa
