Sunday's fixture list features some of the best matchups of the weekend as all clubs in action find themselves in the top 12.

Newcastle United v Arsenal (+280, +260, +105)

Why bet Newcastle: The Magpies have three wins and one draw in their last four games overall and a 5-1 thrashing of Stoke on Boxing Day proves they show no signs of slowing down. They have 18 points from nine matches - including just one loss -  at St. James' Park.

Key players out/doubtful: Ryan Taylor

Why bet Arsenal: The Gunners got back to their winning ways with a 3-1 win at Upton Park against a dismal West Ham side. The news is mixed for Arsenal as Aaron Ramsey picked up a knock against the Hammers, but Jack Wilshere will make his return from suspension.

Key players out/doubtful: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Aaron Ramsey

2012-13 fixture result: Newcastle 0, Arsenal 1

Key betting note: The Gunners have bagged at least three goals in their previous three away games.


Everton v Southampton (-118, +270, +375)

Why bet Everton: Everton will be without a couple of key players as keeper Tim Howard and CM Gareth Barry will miss out with suspension. Still, the Toffees are deep enough to field a strong side and will look to keep their place in the top five. A Boxing Day loss to Sunderland should light a fire under the club to get back in the winning column.

Key players out/doubtful: Tim Howard, Gareth Barry, Darron Gibson, Arouna Koné, Gerard Deulofeu

Why bet Southampton: After a rough run of form, Southampton finally collected three points with a 3-0 win over Cardiff. If the Saints want to compete for European spots in the table, they'll have to do it starting with solid defending, which they exhibited against the Welsh club. Maintaining that will be tough at Goodison Park, but if they can recapture the magic they had earlier in the season, they could be poised for an upset.

Key players out/doubtful: Morgan Schneiderlin, Guly, Artur Boruc, Victor Wanyama, Daniel Fox

2012-13 fixture result: Everton 3, Southampton 1

Key betting note: Everton has lost just three of its last 37 Premier League matches at Goodison Park.


Chelsea v Liverpool (+120, +250, +250)

Why bet Chelsea: The Blues sit third in the table, but have yet to make a statement to the rest of the league that shows they are a serious contender. The side has been winning, but no performance has displayed the dominance we've come to expect from the London club. A home win against a dangerous Liverpool side could be the signature win and statement performance that the Blues need.

Key players out/doubtful: Ramires, Ryan Bertrand, Marco van Ginkel

Why bet Liverpool: After a stunning display during their four-match winning streak, the Reds dropped their Boxing Day tilt with Manchester City by a score of 2-1. No harm in the loss as it's near impossible to win at the Etihad. They had the lead as Coutinho opened the scoring, but the City juggernaut was just too much. Chelsea is just one point above Liverpool in the table and the Reds will battle hard to both leapfrog Chelsea and continue their quest for Champions League football.

Key players out/doubtful: Steven Gerrard, Daniel Sturridge, Jon Flanagan, José Enrique

2012-13 fixture result: Chelsea 1, Liverpool 1

Key betting note: Chelsea has conceded just seven goals in nine matches at Stamford Bridge this season.


Tottenham Hotspur v Stoke (-200, +333, +700)

Why bet Tottenham: Spurs earned one point after a 1-1 draw with West Brom on Boxing Day as the home woes continue. The club needed a nice run during the busy holiday schedule and three points versus a tough Stoke team becomes more important if Spurs want European football next season. Danish star Christian Eriksen scored a brilliant free kick to put Spurs on the board before allowing the equalizer not long after. History is on their side, however, as they've lost just two of the previous 38 matches with Stoke on home soil.

Key players out/doubtful: Kyle Walker, Sandro, Andros Townsend, Jan Vertonghen, Younes Kaboul

Why bet Stoke: Stoke had gone four matches without a loss before getting hammered 5-1 by Newcastle last time out. They will be a depleted side as Glenn Whelan and Marc Wilson will both miss this game as they picked up red cards against Newcastle and Asmir Begovic and Robert Huth are injured. Manager Mark Hughes has called for his club to take out its frustrations on Tottenham and told Sky Sports, "We are exasperated by the events of Boxing Day, but we have another game coming our way very quickly, which I think is a good thing for us."

Key players out/doubtful: Marc Wilson, Glenn Whelan, Robert Huth, Asmir Begovic

2012-13 fixture result: Tottenham 0, Stoke 0

Key betting note: Stoke hasn't won any of its last seven Premier League matches away from home.
