Published:Wednesday | December 31, 2014 | 12:00 AM

ASTON VILLA VS CRYSTAL PALACE

Aston Villa have won just twice at home, scoring only seven goals - the joint fewest in the Barclays Premier League. Palace arrive having won only once away. Christian Benteke got the winner for Villa at Selhurst Park in December, but when they teams met at Villa Park last season, Dwight Gayle scored for Palace to steal a last-minute match winner.

REFEREE: ROBERT MADLEY. MATCHES: 4. Y17 R0.

HULL CITY VS EVERTON

Hull have won just one of their last 12 Barclays Premier League outings, losing seven and drawing four. When the teams met at Goodison a month ago, Everton took the lead through Romelu Lukaku, but Sone Aluko levelled for Hull. The visitors should make changes from the team that lost 3-2 at Newcastle.

REFEREE: KEVIN FRIEND. MATCHES: 12. Y51 R2.

LIVERPOOL VS LEICESTER CITY

Liverpool have returned to form with three wins out of four in league and cup and when these teams met a month ago at the King Power Stadium, Liverpool won 3-1 and Leicester had Wes Morgan sent off. Leicester's 1-0 win over Hull on Sunday was their first victory in 14 with 11 defeats and two draws in the previous 13.

REFEREE: MIKE JONES. MATCHES: 12. Y32 R2.

NEWCASTLE UNITED VS BURNLEY

Papiss Cisse could be missing after being charged by the English Football Association with violent conduct after clearly elbowing Everton's Seamus Coleman on Sunday. Burnley have gone three games without a win and miss Stephen Ward and Matty Taylor, while Michael Duff is a doubt. Newcastle are still without Siem de Jong, Robert Elliot and test Tim Krul.

REFEREE: MIKE DEAN. MATCHES: 13. Y57 R4.

QUEENS PARK RANGERS VS SWANSEA CITY

Queens Park Rangers return to Loftus Road where they have won all their 18 points. Alejandro Faurlin, Adel Taarabt and Sul-Young Yun are out. Swansea City, beaten 4-1 at Liverpool on Monday night, are without Jefferson Montero after the winger was ruled out for a month with a hamstring injury.

REFEREE: ANTHONY TAYLOR. MATCHES: 15. Y62 R2.
