A Happy New Year to all the readers!

Apologies I missed week 22 New Year's Day matches, the festive mood caught up on me!

Man Utd to win against Stoke looks a banker. Although things seem a little agitated at the moment in the red side of Manchester with Mourinho going ballistic everyone, I expect the Red Devils to return to form after a below-par December. Stoke are a team in shambles and it remains to be seen whether getting rid of Hughes will solve their problems. More importantly, they are injury-riddled at the moment and I see them struggling in the short term at least. This should be a big win for Utd.

I also see a win for Watford as they entertain Southampton. The Saints are going nowhere under manager Pellegrino and the Argentinian is clearly running out of time to make his mark. Watford are capable of the best and worst but the visitors are really for the taking at the moment and the Hornets have a great opportunity to advance their chance for European football. Couple Watford and Man Utd wins.

Finally, Liverpool look juicy as they welcome Man City. Sure, they lost Coutinho to Barcelona but newcomer Van Dijk will bring much-needed stability to the defence in time. I like Liverpool here as their attack is potent even without Coutinho; more importantly, I see the time has come for the Citizens to stubble in the near future and Anfield is one of the most formidable places to go to. I cannot see a City win, so the recommendation is to go with either a straight Kop win or a draw-no-bet.

Accumulator: Man Utd/Watford
Win or draw-no-bet: Liverpool
