As is often the case, Jose Mourinho will feel like the star of the show this week as Spurs travel to Manchester United. Jose has a 100% record with his new club and must be going into this game full of confidence that he can take three points from his old club. Elsewhere, Liverpool continue their title challenge in a huge Merseyside derby against city rivals Everton while closest challengers Leicester host bottom club Watford.

Now, here are some of our selected tips & odds for the Premier League Gameweek 15.
Palace ended a difficult run of form by winning impressively on the road against Burnley. In the last few seasons it has often been said that Wilfried Zaha has to play well and then the rest of his teammates will follow. As their talisman, the Ivory Coast international has now scored 2 in 2, and must be full of confidence going into Tuesday’s game. Bournemouth have now lost three games in a row, but Eddie Howe is not the type of manager to panic as yet. If this decline carries on though, the Cherries may start to get worried.
This season is actually starting to turn into a bit of a nightmare for Pep Guardiola by his own high standards. City have now fallen 11 points behind the leaders Liverpool after a disappointing 2-2 draw at Newcastle, and the performance was far from convincing even though Kevin De Bruyne pulled out one of the goals of the season. They will be buoyed by Burnley’s weekend loss though, which was a surprise considering how solid they usually are at home. Pep’s side desperately need the points though.
As mentioned, it is all eyes on the dugout yet again as the most box office manager around returns to his old club. He brings a team in form too as he has won all three of his matches in all competitions, scoring three or more goals in each. Dele Alli and Son Heung-Min in particular have come into form with the new manager bounce. For the hosts, Marcus Rashford is getting goals but they are defensively very suspect at the moment. The question is: if Spurs win, how big will Mourinho’s celebrations be.
Both sides remain in the bottom three, despite positive results at the weekend. The Saints won at home to Watford, while Norwich held Arsenal to a drw. This could be a very cagey game that leads to neither side committing to playing an attacking style. Norwich have really struggled away from home and may decide that a point would be in their best interests.
Chelsea’s defeat at home to West Ham at the weekend showed exactly how important Tammy Abraham is to their success. Without him they were abysmal, with neither Olivier Giroud or Michy Batshuayi looking like a good enough replacement. The problem is, Abraham may also miss out on this game against Villa, which would be a massive problem for Frank Lampard. Aston Villa have been hit and miss so far, but performed admirably at Old Trafford to get a draw, with two fantastic finishes by Jack Grealish and Tyrone Mings.
Leicester are on an unbelievable run of form at the moment and Brendan Rodgers has got to be proud of how his side are performing. To be above Man City at this stage of the season is a fantastic achievement and they have shown that they will fight to the last whistle, as seen with the last minute VAR assisted winner against Everton. Watford are now looking for their third manager of the season after Quiche Sánchez Flores was sacked at the club for the second time. Rooted to the bottom of the league, things are looking bleak for the Hornets.
Wolves fought back from a goal down to claim a draw against Sheffield United, which on paper doesn’t look too great but the Blades have had a stellar season. With Wolves sitting in the top 6, it’s no surprise to see Nuno linked to some other jobs. West Ham are probably the most inconsistent team in the Premier League, so who knows how they are going to perform. From an attacking point of view, Wolves have been very impressive recently.
With an 8 point lead at the top of the Premier League, things couldn’t be going much better for Liverpool at the moment. As the reigning European Champions as well, Jurgen Klopp has to be considered as one of the best managers in the club’s illustrious history. Speaking of managers, Marco Silva looked crushed on the touchline as his side conceded a last-minute winner on Sunday. Unfortunately if results do not improve, he may end up as the next boss to go. Defeat in the Merseyside derby would be yet another hammer blow.
Sheffield United must be starting to think a push for European football is in sight for them, and Chris Wilder might well be in pole position for manager of the season at this early stage. Steve Bruce is beginning to win some fans around at Newcastle, but he needs to get his side playing well a little bit more consistently. These two sides don’t play each other very often but when they do, it’s Newcastle that have the better record. This is likely to be a combative game, decided by the midfield battle of Hayden and Shelvey against Lundstram, Fleck and Norwood.
Arsenal never seem to be out of the headlines and Brighton are one of the sides that often slip under the radar, so this should be an interesting contest. After replacing Granit Xhaka as Arsenal captain, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has started to step up as the talisman. The two goals against Norwich were crucial, and the Gabon international has 10 Premier League goals for the season. Arsenal also really need a win here if Interim Head Coach Freddie Ljungberg is to get the job full time.
