Published:Friday | March 13, 2015 | 3:00 AM

CRYSTAL PALACE

VS QPR

Queens Park Rangers travel across London with the worst away record in the Barclays Premier League. Rangers have won one and lost 12 of their 13 away games, conceding 29 goals. However, in their last four visits to Selhurst Park, they are unbeaten, winning their last two and drawing the previous two. Palace are without the banned Mile Jedinak, while Rangers miss Joey Barton, also through suspension.

LEICESTER VS HULL

Leicester have won just four games all season, and one of those successes came at Hull in December when Riyad Mahrez secured the Foxes' first victory in 14 Barclays Premier League games. Both teams ended the game with 10 men as Leicester's Paul Konchesky and the hosts' Stephen Quinn were dismissed.

SUNDERLAND VS ASTON VILLA

Sunderland are without the suspended Lee Cattermole and Adam Johnson, while Aston Villa's Jack Grealish and Alan Hutton are also banned. And when these teams met in a goalless draw at Villa Park in December, the home side had Fabian Delph red-carded early in the second half. Villa are looking for a third straight win after beating West Bromwich Albion in the league and FA Cup.

WEST BROM VS STOKE CITY

Stoke City are unbeaten on their last five Barclays Premier League games against West Bromwich Albion and have won in each of their five visits to The Hawthorns in the competition. They are also unbeaten in seven visits (six wins and a draw) and last lost there in the old First Division, in September 2003. Albion miss the banned Claudio Yacob.

EVERTON VS

NEWCASTLE

Everton are suffering their fewest number of points (working on three points for a win) for 88 years and have gone five Barclays Premier League games without a win at Goodison Park, drawing their last five. Newcastle, meanwhile, have won one of their last four, but when the teams met at St James' Park in December the Magpies won 3-2. Everton are without the banned Gareth Barry while Newcastle's Papiss Cisse is also banned.

SWANSEA CITY VS LIVERPOOL

Former Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers takes Liverpool to his old club having led his latest team to 12 Barclays Premier League games without loss. The Reds are fifth, two points behind fourth-placed Manchester United while Swansea are ninth. The teams have met twice this season, at Anfield, and Liverpool have won both the league clash and the Capital One Cup tie.
