It’s going to be another hugely significant weekend of Premier League action with Sunday’s north London derby between Spurs and Arsenal taking centre stage.

Jose Mourinho’s team are in sensational form and are currently setting the pace at the top of the table, while their fierce rivals are struggling for goals but form traditionally goes out of the window in these fixtures.

As ever, Betfair Ambassador Dimitar Berbatov previews the action for Metro.co.uk…

Burnley v Everton

The curious case of Everton – they were first and now they’re eighth. I want to see Everton succeed and, even though Turf Moor is a difficult place to go, I think they can battle to a victory here. Prediction: 2-1

Betfair Exchange Odds: Burnley 16/5, Draw 13/5, Everton 21/20

Man City v Fulham

My old club Fulham were great against Leicester and picked up a win that surprised a lot of people. But City have too much class and will win comfortably. Prediction: 3-0

Betfair Exchange Odds: Man City 2/15, Draw 11/1, Fulham 26/1

West Ham v Manchester United

The Red Devils have a massive game on Tuesday against Leipzig but they can’t afford to rest players as they need to climb the Premier League table. This will be a tough game against a well-organised West Ham team. Prediction: 1-1

Betfair Exchange Odds: West Ham 14/5, Draw 11/4, Man United 11/10

Chelsea v Leeds

Chelsea have the momentum and Frank Lampard is doing a great job. Leeds picked up an important win last time out but the Blues at the Bridge will be too strong. Prediction: 2-1

Betfair Exchange Odds: Chelsea 4/7, Draw 7/2, Leeds 11/2

West Brom v Crystal Palace

This isn’t exactly the most exciting match of the weekend but there is a lot at stake as West Brom try to build on last week’s win. I think we’ll see a draw at the Hawthorns. Prediction: 1-1

Betfair Exchange Odds: West Brom 2/1, Draw 9/4, Crystal Palace 13/8

Sheffield United v Leicester

When are Sheffield United going to get their first win? When it comes it will probably be a surprise. Leicester lost to Fulham last time and I’m going for another shock. Prediction: 1-0

Betfair Exchange Odds: Sheff United 3/1, Draw 11/4, Leicester 21/20

Tottenham v Arsenal

I’m backing my old club, not only because another three points is what I want to see, but because Spurs are playing great football and getting results. They can march on and continue their great year with a win in the North London derby. Prediction: 2-0

Betfair Exchange Odds: Tottenham 11/10, Draw 11/4, Arsenal 3/1

Liverpool v Wolves

Wolves are clicking into gear and could break into the top six, or even top four, this season. But Liverpool are so strong at Anfield that I can’t see past the home win. Prediction: 3-1.

Betfair Exchange Odds: Liverpool 4/7, Draw 100/30, Wolves 6/1

Brighton v Southampton

Two good managers, who have got their teams playing attractive football, meet in a south coast derby on Monday night. It should be a decent game and, with the sides evenly matched, it has draw written all over it. Prediction: 1-1

Betfair Exchange Odds: Brighton 8/5, Draw 5/2, Southampton 2/1
