Chelsea maintains a stronghold at the top of the table with 37 points, 7 more than second place defending league champion Manchester City. The Blues most recently beat Everton 1-0, their fifth consecutive undefeated match in Premier League play. Burnley, losers of 3 of their last 4 Premier League encounters, need to find ways to continue to feed the football to striker Danny Ings who has netted five goals in his last six Premier League encounters.

Second place Manchester City looks for Yaya Toure to extend a streak that has seen him score five goals in his last six Premier League matchups against Newcastle United. The Magpies arrive at Ethiad Stadium still stuck in a middle of the table crunch with 32 points and hoping to reverse bad fortunes against Manchester City which has seen them held scoreless against The Citizens in their last four Premier League encounters.
