There are five games on the Premier League card this Saturday, culminating in a resurgent Chelsea's clash with struggling Everton — here are our expert writers' top selections for each of those fixtures.

Aston Villa vs Bournemouth (Saturday, 3pm)

The visitors will not be cowed given they have beaten five of the best keepers in the division in their last five outings, scoring against each of Liverpool, Arsenal, Manchester City, Wolves and Newcastle, but Bournemouth will know they must again work hard to find the net.

They have a good stopper themselves at the other end in Neto and Bournemouth's growing confidence could help them pinch a positive result.

The Cherries have not been great on the road, but they won at Wolves prior to coming within seconds of a shock result at Arsenal and will fancy their chances of nicking another important point.

Brentford vs Leicester (Saturday, 3pm)

Leicester's poor form, terrible record away at better opponents and absence of key defensive-minded players all point to a tough trip to the Gtech Community Stadium, where Thomas Frank has done an incredible job in turning Brentford into genuine European contenders.

Given the respective form of the two teams, the home win looks generously priced at even money but with Brentford scoring at will and Leicester unable to shut up shop it is worth bumping up that price by adding a goals element.

Southampton vs Tottenham (Saturday, 3pm)

Antonio Conte's side could not keep a clean sheet in just under 70% of Spurs' away Premier League games this season.

It suggests there could be something for a painfully shot-shy Southampton side to take from this often entertaining matchup.

Only one of the last 16 meetings between these clubs has featured a clean sheet and goals are usually scored at both ends.

Wolves vs Leeds (Saturday, 3pm)

Wolves' performances have been following a pattern of flat first halves followed by energised efforts after the break.

Leeds remain unconvincing in both penalty areas and could now become vulnerable in midfield after the injury to Tyler Adams.

The hosts have the physicality and craft in their engine room to come through this test with all three points even if their own strikeforce has been failing to deliver.

Their home record under Julen Lopetegui reads three wins and two narrow 1-0 losses, at least one of which they had good opportunities to win, while Leeds have picked up the joint-fewest amount of points on the road in the top flight.

Chelsea vs Everton (Saturday, 5.30pm)

The pressure has been lifted off Graham Potter with Chelsea having secured three wins on the bounce

Chelsea looked very good at times against Leicester last weekend, but will not find Everton as easy to play against.

The Toffees will sit deep and defend their box with everything they have got and so it could take a while for the Londoners' superior quality to shine through.

Graham Potter's team had scored only one first-half goal in their previous nine Premier League games to last week's game at the King Power Stadium.

And while Everton have been behind at the interval in four of their last five away league contests, three of those were against Manchester City, Liverpool and Arsenal.
