Sunday's Premier League preview: All eyes on North London

While there are only three Premier League matches scheduled on Sunday afternoon, all have the potential to be huge occasions as the fight for Europe continues.

Chelsea's clash with Crystal Palace at 14:00 could go a long way to deciding Graham Potter's fate at Stamford Bridge, while Newcastle will look to extend their unbeaten run at the expense of Fulham at the same time.

The pick of the three games takes place at 16:30, though, as Tottenham host Arsenal in the latest North London derby. Spurs need to win to improve their top-four hopes, while a victory for Arsenal will help them maintain their lead at the top of the Premier League table.

Odds Chelsea 4/6, Draw 14/5, Crystal Palace 15/4

Chelsea will try to bounce back from three straight defeats across all competitions when they welcome Crystal Palace to Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon.

The pressure on Potter's shoulders is growing by the week, and his side's 2-1 defeat to Fulham on Thursday did him no favours as he tries to prove the doubters wrong.

Potter will hope that because two of his team's three defeats came against Manchester City in the Premier League and FA Cup, he will be able to stay in the dugout for the coming weeks.

Thankfully for the English tactician, Patrick Vieira's Palace are struggling for results themselves, with the Eagles losing three of their last four in all competitions.

Palace have only won two of their previous 10 in the league on their travels, but both of those victories did come in their last three encounters away from Selhurst Park.

While Chelsea have won their last 11 meetings with Palace, they are desperately short of confidence and a score draw looks the way to go at 9/2.

OddsNewcastle 1/2, Draw 7/2, Fulham 5/1

Nobody would have expected to see both Newcastle and Fulham fighting for the European places, but that is the state of play ahead of Sunday's meeting at St James' Park.

The Magpies are unbeaten in 13 Premier League matches and that run of form has lifted them into third in the league table, while Fulham have won five on the spin across all competitions ahead of their trip to Tyneside.

Marco Silva's side have triumphed in four of their last five away assignments in all competitions, so confidence will be high and they will fancy their chances of coming away with a positive result.

However, Newcastle won the reverse fixture 4-1 and they head into the clash fresh off the back of a 2-0 victory over Leicester City that booked their place in the semi-finals of the League Cup.

Fulham do have former Newcastle striker Aleksandar Mitrovic back from suspension and that will boost their attacking options, but a home win and both teams to score at 11/5 in Result/Both Teams to Score looks the smart play.

OddsTottenham 21/10, Draw 13/5, Arsenal 6/5

Tottenham and Arsenal love nothing more than ruining each other's fortunes, and after Spurs pipped the Gunners to fourth last year, Mikel Arteta's side have a point to prove in Sunday's match.

The two bitter rivals will meet under different circumstances this time, though, with Arsenal setting the standard at the top of the Premier League table.

Arsenal's advantage currently stands at five points, but if Spurs can win and results go their way, they can climb into third.

Sunday's tie promises to be physical and entertaining, but Tottenham's inconsistency will worry boss Antonio Conte.

Quite often in these games, the formbook goes out of the window and Over 2.5 Goals seems the sensible play at 8/11.

That bet would have landed in the previous four meetings between the pair, and the signs suggest we could be in for another thrilling battle this weekend.
