Manchester City – Chelsea (6 p.m.)
The main course appeared first with the repeat of the last Champions League final between Citizens and Blues, who will visit Etihad without their starting goalkeeper, Edouard Mendy, linked to the AFCON and the hope that Reece James arrives well.
Pep Guardiola will wait until the last moment for Phil Foden and Oleksandr Zinchenko to maintain his streak of 6 wins in a row in the Premier League.

Chelsea: Kepa; Christensen, Thiago Silva, Rudiger; Azpilicueta, Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic, Alonso; Havertz, Mount.
In the match for the first round it was 1-0 in favor of Manchester City and today he starts as a favorite with an odd of 1.67, while some movement can be made for less than 4.5 cards.
Newcastle United – Watford (8:30 p.m.)
The Magpies need to get out of the relegation zone and they can do it if they beat the worst Premier League team in the last 10 games: Watford.
It could be a pivotal game for Newcastle and we will explain it to you on PlayOn99 News, but it will be without Federico Fernández, Callum Wilson and Matthew Longstaff.
Surely we will see the debut of the incorporations: Kieran Trippier in the Premier League and Chris Wood with the black and white shirt.
Watford accumulates 7 consecutive defeats and the reasons why Claudio Ranieri continues to lead the team have not yet been made present.
Eddie Howe on looking for a reaction from last week:
"We've reflected & now you have to come back strongly and show everybody that it was a blip. We know the importance of this game, I don't have to communicate that to the players – we're going to be motivated to give our best." pic.twitter.com/JLDQpUJGGv

Newcastle United: Dubravka; Trippier, Schar, Lascelles, Ritchie; Fraser, Sean Longstaff, Shelvey, Joelinton, Saint-Maximin; Good.
Newcastle have everything to win and that will pay 2.0 while Watford (3.60) don’t even have a 25% chance of winning the match and are usually the first to concede.
Norwich City – Everton (8:30 p.m.)
The Toffees will visit the last of the tournament in search of raising their heads and driving away the winds of dismissal for Rafa Benítez.
The Spanish coach has endless casualties where the most important are Richarlison, Yerri Mina and Alex Iwobi, while -after the departure of Lucas Digne- Vitaliy Mykolenko made his debut.
Norwich City seemed to have relegation decreed previously, but the distances were reduced and a victory would bring them closer to desire, but they will be without Billy Gilmour and Mathias Norman.

Norwich City: Krull; Aarons, Hanley, Gibson, Williams; Placheta, Melou, McLean, Rashica; Pukki, Sargent.
Everton: Pickford; Coleman, Godfrey, Keane, Mykolenko; Doucoure, Allan; Townsend, Gray, Gordon; Calvert-Lewin.
Norwich City is the team with the most goals in the tournament with 44 goals against and an Everton goal will pay 1.28, while Everton’s victory will have a price of 2.0 and the local one 3.75.
Wolverhampton – Southampton (8:30 p.m.)
The Wolves will receive Soton in a match that will serve to validate the good performances and points they garnered against the Big Six.
Willy Bolly and Romain Saiss will be absent from the venue due to being at AFCON, while Hee-Chan Hwang is injured.
Southampton raised its head, proved to be up to big games and will put all its trust in Armando Broja and the captain, James Ward-Prose.
— Premier League (@premierleague) January 15, 2022
Wolverhampton: Sa; Semedo, Kilman, Coady, Marcal, Ait Nouri; Neves, Moutinho; Trincao, Jimenez, Podence.
Southampton: Forster; Tella, Bednarek, Lyanco, Salisu, Perraud; Ward-Prose, Romeu, Diallo; Broja, Redmond.
Wolverhampton (2.20) and Southampton (3.50) are two highly defensive teams that come out against each other, so great attacks are not expected except for spaces -which is rare- and a draw pays 3.13.
Aston Villa – Manchester United (12 PM)
Saturday’s day will end with a great meeting between Villains and Red Devils: two teams that do not have a great pass, but have big names.
Steven Gerrard has two new faces, Philipe Coutinho and Lucas Digne, but they are not expected to debut so soon and will have to make up for the absence of Leon Bailey.
Manchester United needs to win to ward off ghosts of poor performance and will be without Paul Pogba due to injury.
— Manchester United (@ManUtd) January 15, 2022
Aston Villa: Martinez; Cash, Konsa, Mings, Targett; Sanson, Luis, Ramsey; Buendia, Watkins; Ings.
Manchester United: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Varane, Maguire, Telles; Matt, Fred; Greenwood, Fernandes; Cavani, Ronaldo.
Aston Villa (2.88) lost the last two games and did not show great display, but Manchester United (2.40) is not a difficult rival in this Premier League and has just lost to Wolverhampton.
The data? They met 5 days ago for the FA Cup and Ralf Ragnick’s men won 1-0.
