This type of game should suit Crystal Palace as they will sit deep and look to hit Everton on the counter. That said, if Zaha misses the match through injury, that would be a major blow as their record without him is abysmal, so the hosts have to be favoured if he is ruled out.
There is little to choose between these two sides and their first meeting in the very first match of the Afghanistan Premier League showed just how well matched they were. Kabul Zwanan won that game by three wickets as they chased down 218/4 in what was a highly entertaining game and this match could easily follow suit.
The urgency is with Kandahar Knights coming into this game as they have to win to reach the quarter-final stage due to having the better net run rate compared to the Nangarhar Leopards so they have it all to play for.
Watford are certainly on a downward trend right now after such a bright start to the season and they are not helped by two suspensions in defence. They come up against a Wolves team growing in confidence while playing some excellent football and are likely to maintain this good form here.
Matches between these two teams are often lively and this one promises to be no less. West Ham will be highly motivated to bounce back after a setback to Brighton, while Spurs are in solid form themselves. A score draw may be on the cards here.
The pressure is growing on Newcastle with every match and the atmosphere at St James' Park is filled with tension. Brighton will expect the hosts to try and make a fast start so they will aim to frustrate them early and grind a clean sheet out.
Form is certainly with the visitors coming into this game and they sit in the unfamiliar position of being above Barcelona in the table heading into it. Barcelona will be desperate to get back to normality and this should be an open game with plenty of goals.
Burnley seem to have turned the corner since their Europa League elimination and they will take heart from the fact that they managed to take a point last time they met City. Guardiola's men will be keen to kick on here however and they should edge it even if not as comfortably as usual at home.
Klopp would surely love to rest one or two of his key players who are struggling with knocks but he will be desperate to maintain momentum in the league. Huddersfield look to have a long season ahead of them and their chances of getting anything out of this game seem highly remote.
Cardiff have had a horror schedule in recent weeks but in many ways that ramps the pressure on them to get a result here. Fulham's defence has been fragile to say the least but Cardiff are unlikely to take advantage of that, so Jokanovic's men have to be favoured to compound Warnock's misery.
This Saturday’s 11.30am deadline is hotly anticipated after another long international break which saw Liverpool pick up several injury worries, but the Reds’ fixture list demands investment, while an overlooked Newcastle outfit could potentially provide some FPL value.
These two south coast teams come into this match with contrasting form as Bournemouth are flying right now, while Southampton are on a three-match losing run without scoring a single goal. Mark Hughes' men are not convincing at all and Bournemouth can pile the pressure on them here.
The superb comeback victory for Man Utd last time out against Newcastle may mask some of the issues which seemingly remain at the club. This is not a great fixture for them as Chelsea are in excellent form themselves and are more likely to be ruthless and punish them more than Newcastle could.
This is desperation time for the Kandahar Knights now who are in must-win mode but they come off a demoralising loss on Tuesday in a game they should have won. They have to win this match regardless of the result of the earlier match, but they really need to improve with the bat and give their bowlers a better chance. They bowling attack is decent all round and is keeping them vaguely competitive but their batsmen have to raise their game further.
