The first month of Premier League football in 2017 sees a number of interesting fixtures including some crucial London derbies.
Arsenal have had a steady start to the season but slipped up before Christmas to raise doubts about their title winning credentials, January fixtures against Crystal Palace, Burnley and Watford will offer easier tests but the Gunners need to keep up the pressure on the teams at the top. One team at the top, Chelsea have emerged as real title contenders with Conte’s men impressing with their teamwork and commitment, matches against Tottenham and Hull seem unlikely to stop Chelsea’s progress.
Tottenham are at last showing some of their form from last year but will be tested by a resurgent Chelsea and matches against Watford and West Brom.
West Ham’s poor start to the season has been a surprise and December at last bought some relief for West Ham manager Bilic with improved displays. Games against Man Utd and Crystal Palace will test the new resolve.
Watford and Crystal Palace have shown signs that they may struggle this year, Palace in particular have lost direction and replaced their manager. Matches against Arsenal, Swansea, West Ham and Everton will provide severe tests. Watford have been very inconsistent and need points against Tottenham, Middlesbrough and Arsenal.
