Tottenham Hotspur vs Burnley
Burnley got a rare win last week at home against Southampton but I have a feeling the newly promoted side are going to go down. There just isnt enough about them upfront to keep them up. They take on a Spurs team that found their scoring boots midweek against a good Newcastle side and should be able to repeat that here on Saturday afternoon. I like Spurs to win this by a couple so taking them -1 on the handicap, Christian Erickson, Roberto SOldado and Harry Kane should provide the difference in quality here.
Pick: Tottenham -1
Hull City vs Swansea City
Swansea were robbed last week when Christian Erickson scored a late winner in the Libery stadium for Spurs. Huge Lloris denied Wilfred Bony at least 4 goals and I think the Swans will be looking to bounce back here. Hull though have been abysmal of late winning one of their last fifteen. Goals have been a real problem for the tigers but I dont see that changing tomorrow. Steve Bruce needs more from Jelavich but personally I think he needs to go buy a striker in january. I am going to take Swansea here as an away favourite. I just think Swansea are the better team and with Bony and Sigurdsson they have game winners.
Pick: Swansea to win
