ASTON VILLA VS

BURNLEY,

Aston Villa have won 10 Barclays Premier League games; one more victory would represent their best win return since the 2010-11 season, when they won 12. The FA Cup finalists face relegated Burnley, who have just 30 points; they need one more to improve on their previous Premier League low.

CRYSTAL PALACE VS SWANSEA

Crystal Palace had lost four games in a row but ended that sequence with a 3-1 win at Liverpool. Now on 45 points, they need a draw to claim their highest ever points tally in the Barclays Premier League. Swansea ended three wins with a 4-2 home defeat by Manchester City last weekend but their 56 points is a club record high.

EVERTON VS TOTTENHAM

Everton have won six and drawn one of their last nine games in the Barclays Premier League but with one game to go they have 25 points fewer than last season's haul of 72. Tottenham arrive with eight points fewer than a year ago but have failed to beat the Toffeemen in their last four meetings.

LEICESTER CITY VS

QUeens Park Rangers

There is little to play for in this game with Leicester's Barclays Premier League place confirmed after six wins and a draw from eight games. Queens Park Rangers, however, are already relegated and face the prospect of losing leading scorer Charlie Austin after this game. The striker has netted 17 goals and is sure to return to the Premier League with another club.

NEWCASTLE VS WEST HAM

Emotions will run high at St James' Park where Newcastle United face a battle to remain in the Barclays Premier League. However, a win against West Ham will secure their safety. In November the Hammers beat the Magpies 1-0 and they finished with 10 men after Moussa Sissoko was sent off.

STOKE CITY VS LIVERPOOL

Steven Gerrard is set to make his final appearance for Liverpool ahead of his move to LA Galaxy in the United States. But the Reds are finishing poorly with four defeats and two draws in their last eight Barclays Premier League games. They visit a Stoke side who have accumulated 51 points, their highest ever Premier League total.
