Can Everton end their winless streak?

The Toffees have been going through a horrible time recently.

Today they face a Brighton team who have won two of their last three games and are in seventh place, which is not an easy game.

Sean Dyche’s side are winless in their last eight Premier League games, and last won on December 16, a 2-0 win at Burnley.

They seem to be in serious trouble right now. However, the last time they were in a similar position, they came to Brighton and beat them 5-1.

Is that in the cards again? I doubt it.

Glasner keeps his promise

Henry Clark at Selhurst Park:

New Crystal Palace boss Oliver Glasner has vowed not to change too much, too soon at the club, and it looks like he is going to keep his word by naming an unchanged squad for his first game on the touchline.

Palace will be without the injured Eberechi Eze and Michael Olise for this afternoon’s clash against second-bottom Burnley at Selhurst Park.

Many Academy graduates for United

Man United have always been excellent at attracting academy players.

Today, they start with three academy graduates, whose joining the club cost them just £325,000 in total.

Will you do the work for them today?

Enciso on the Brighton bench!

Burnley’s starting eleven to face Palace

Glasner’s first Palace XI!

Crystal Palace’s starting lineup has not changed.

How different will they play with Oliver Glasner? I can’t wait to find out.

It seems like he wants to see how he can develop the team he already has.

The Forest lineup to face Villa

Martínez will make his 150th PL appearance

It’s a big day for Emi Martínez, who will make his 150th appearance in the Premier League today.

It’s been a long journey for the Argentine goalkeeper, but he continues to improve with age.

Villa are unchanged since their 2-1 win over Fulham last week.

Bassey returns to Fulham

Calvin Bassey has returned to Fulham’s starting lineup after sitting out the African Cup of Nations.

It is one of SIX changes from the team that lost 2-1 at home to Aston Villa last week.

Forson STARTS with United

A big day awaits Omari Forson, 19, who will make his debut as a starter in the Premier League with Manchester United.

He comes in for Rasmus Hojlund, while Victor Lindelof replaces the injured Luke Shaw at left back.

Does this starting XI excite United fans?

What are your predictions about the starting eleven?

The team news is only five minutes long.

The question on everyone’s lips is who will start in place of Rasmus Hojlund at Manchester United?

Omari Forson will reportedly make his first Premier League start for the club. What a moment that would be!

Who will Oliver Glasner choose in his first XI?

There will be some interesting lineup options today!

Will Fulham laugh at full time?

The Fulham players certainly look comfortable on the Old Trafford pitch.

When I see photos like this I always wonder what was said.

Regardless, they will have to be on their game today if they want to get anything from Manchester United.

I’m sure they won’t smile if they end up with nothing.

Glasner’s Premier League bow

Everything has changed over the past week at Selhurst Park – they have a new man in charge.

Palace fans will welcome their new boss Oliver Glasner with open arms in today’s match against Burnley.

You couldn’t ask for a much better game to start with, Burnley at home, who are 19th in the table with only 13 points.

However, the Eagles do not have a good record against the Clarets, winning only one of their last five meetings. However, that happened this season, so that’s a more positive sign.

Will the Eagles get the new manager to rebound?

United’s crazy unbeaten run against Fulham

It shouldn’t be Hojlund, no problem, right?

Based on these statistics, I don’t think United fans have anything to worry about today.

The Red Devils currently have a crazy 18-game unbeaten streak against Fulham, including 15 wins, dating back to March 2010.

The last time United tasted defeat at the hands of the Cottagers was in December 2009, when they lost 3-0 to the west London side at Craven Cottage.

Fulham’s current away record is also quite stale, so I expect a home win in this one.

However, United always has some surprises in store for us.

Hojlund’s big blow due to injury

Just when Rasmus Hojlund finally found his rhythm, he suffered an injury.

Football can be cruel, we all know that, and that is how Hojlund must feel at the moment, who will be on the sidelines for two or three weeks.

After struggling to find his place in the Premier League and not scoring his first league goal until Boxing Day, the Danish forward finally hit form, scoring seven goals in his last six games.

However, United will have to go without him today, which is a big mistake.

Erik ten Hag’s side have struggled without a recognized number nine at times this campaign, will Fulham take advantage?

What’s happening?

So what are the four games we have in store for you today?

  • Aston Villa – Nottingham Forest
  • Brighton-Everton
  • Crystal Palace against Burnley
  • Manchester United-Fulham

There are certainly some decent matchups there. I didn’t mention it before, but I’m also looking forward to watching Brighton-Everton: it always brings goals.

If you’re going to a game, tell us which one in the comments!

Welcome!

Four days is a long time not to play in the Premier League, so I’m glad it’s back.

We’ve got another big day in store for you, with four 3pm kick-offs ahead of Bournemouth-Manchester City at 5.30pm and an unusual 8pm kick-off when Arsenal take on Newcastle.

It feels weird not having an early start this week, I don’t really know what to do with myself, but I’m sure the rest of the day will be packed with great football.

For starters, it will be interesting to see how Manchester United cope today without their goal machine Rasmus Hojlund, who will miss the game against Fulham through injury.

I’m also excited to see how Crystal Palace do in their first game under new manager Oliver Glasner. I bet it will be great.

Since there’s no kickoff at 12:30, I’ve been excited for these games all day.
