Liverpool go top as they end Solskjaer's unbeaten domestic run with Manchester United: Premier League predictions
Solskjaer has yet to lose a game against a domestic side as United manager but that run ends at Old Trafford on Sunday
Cardiff City 1 Watford 1. Friday, 11.45pm UAE time. Cardiff's home form has kept them in the hunt to beat the drop, but Watford can be a tough nut to crack, having lost only one of their past 10 games in all competitions. Watford will hope for goals from midfielder Etienne Capoue, pictured, who scored their winner in their FA Cup win at Queens Park Rangers last weekend. Reuters
West Ham United 2 Fulham 0. Friday, 11.45pm. This literally depends on which West Ham turns up. If it is the one that troubled Liverpool so much earlier in February then Manuel Pellegrini, pictured, will see his side prevail. If it is the one that manages to concede four at AFC Wimbledon in the FA Cup then they could give Fulham hope of getting something. But, being optimistic, West Ham should have too much for the relegation strugglers. Getty
Burnley 0 Tottenham Hotspur 2. Saturday, 4.30pm. Burnley showed in becoming the first side not to lose to Manchester United under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that they should not be underestimated. But Tottenham have been great at grinding out wins this year and with Son Heung-min, pictured, having scored in his past four games the Premier League title challengers should leave Lancashire with the three points.

Bournemouth 2 Wolverhampton Wanderers 2. Saturday, 7pm. Bournemouth can be wildly inconsistent but they have lost only one of their past six home league games, and that was to Liverpool. With Josh King, pictured right, in good form they should be worth a point against in-form Wolves. Getty
Newcastle United 2 Huddersfield Town 0. Saturday, 7pm. Rafa Benitez's Newcastle are just a point above the relegation zone, but Salomon Rondon, pictured, will fancy his chances of a productive afternoon against a Huddersfield side who have not won since November. Getty
Leicester City 1 Crystal Palace 2. Saturday, 9.30pm. Palace have been gently dragged back into the relegation zone but new loan striker Michy Batshuayi, pictured right, can help the London side pick up an important three points here. Action Images via Reuters
Arsenal 3 Southampton 1. Sunday, 6.05pm. Unai Emery's side built up some confidence with their win in the Europa League on Thursday. They will look to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, pictured, to three points to keep their hopes of a top-four finish alive. AFP
Manchester United 2 Liverpool 3. Sunday, 6.05pm. Biggest league game of the weekend by a stretch. United are unbeaten in domestic action under Solskjaer but Liverpool will be the best side they have faced. United will trouble Liverpool, but Jurgen Klopp's side have the forward line in Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino to hurt the home side. Plus they have Virgil van Dijk, pictured, back from his midweek Uefa Champions League suspension. Liverpool to win to return to the top of the league. Action Images via Reuters
The Premier League is back after its two-week hiatus this weekend, well for most of the teams anyway.
The League Cup final between Manchester City and Chelsea on Sunday means they are not playing league football, nor are Everton or Brighton and Hove Albion.
There are eight games in total, starting on Friday with Cardiff v Watford and West Ham United v Fulham, both at 11.45pm.
Four matches take place on Saturday, with the highlight being Tottenham Hotspur's trip to Burnley.
Liverpool will go back top of the table as long as they avoid defeat at Liverpool, which kicks off at 6.05pm, with Arsenal v Southampton on at the same time.
