There are just three Premier League games taking place on New Year’s Day, but they are all important fixtures at the top and bottom ends of the table.

Everton to beat Leicester @ Evens

Both Everton and Leicester will be looking to bounce back from surprise defeats at the weekend, when they go head-to-head at Goodison Park in the early kick off (Match Odds – Everton Evens, Draw 5/2, Leicester 3/1).

The Toffees slipped to a 1-0 defeat at Brighton on Saturday, while at the same time the Foxes were going down 1-0 at home to Cardiff.

Marco Silva’s men though have only lost one of their last seven games on home soil (to Tottenham) and the head-to-head stats also point to a home success.

Everton have won three of the last four meetings between the sides, including a 2-1 victory at the King Power Stadium in October.

Richarlison, who has nine goals to his name this season, scored the opening goal that day and the Brazilian is 4/1 to be the first goalscorer on Tuesday.

Arsenal v Fulham – Draw HT / Arsenal FT @ 16/5

There is another London Derby on Tuesday, with North versus West at the Emirates (Match Odds – Arsenal 20/59, Draw 9/2, Fulham 8/1) – with Fulham claiming more points over Christmas than Arsenal.

Claudio Ranieri’s men are off the bottom after collecting five points from their last three games, with two notable clean sheets during that run.

Arsenal, meanwhile, have won only one of their last four Premier League games and now find themselves five points outside of the top four.

The Gunners have still only been in front once at HT this season and with Fulham looking a bit more solid at the back, Unai Emery’s men could be frustrated for long periods.

But Arsenal have scored in 19 straight Premier League games and should be able to find a breakthrough in the second half.

Cardiff v Tottenham – Under 2.5 Goals @ 5/4

There were contrasting results for Cardiff and Spurs last time out, with this looking a crucial game for both teams at opposite ends.

Barring heavy defeats to the two Manchester clubs, Cardiff have been impressive on home soil and they will make it tough for Tottenham, as they did at Wembley.

The last three games between the sides have finished 1-0 to Spurs and the same scoreline in favour of Mauricio Pochettino’s men can be backed at 15/2.
