The beginning of the holiday fixtures in England starts on Boxing day followed with a big Chelsea-Arsenal game on Monday. Here is a look at the round of games.

Gameweek 18 Picks:
Fulham vs. West Ham
Fulham have been strong at home and while West Ham have been playing better, they are still not a strong team as they fall on the road. Fulham 2, West Ham 1

Blackburn vs. Stoke City
Blackburn and Stoke City are physical teams and it will be interesting to see how they match-up. Blackburn seem to be okay after the Allardyce dismissal and I see them coming out of this with a point against a solid Stoke side. Blackburn 1, Stoke City 1

Blackpool vs. Liverpool
Blackpool could cause problems for Liverpool’s defense, but Liverpool have a midfield that should have decent control of the game in terms of possession. I think this game will be exciting as it ends in a 2-2 draw. Blackpool 2, Liverpool 2

Bolton vs. West Bromwich Albion
Bolton should be able to rebound from the Sunderland loss against a West Brom side that have not been as impressive recently. Bolton have the stronger midfield and they should control the game and get a home victory. Bolton 2, West Bromwich Albion 0

Everton vs. Birmingham
Everton have sort of been up and down, but they have been better recently and they should be able to do better against a poor Birmingham side as Everton get the win. Everton 2, Birmingham 1

Manchester United vs. Sunderland
Manchester United have improved and they have been unstoppable at home where they should get a win against a strong Sunderland side. Manchester United 2, Sunderland 0

Newcastle vs. Manchester City
Manchester City are a mixed bag. Newcastle have struggled at St. James this season, but they should have enough to frustrate a Manchester City side that have struggled to score most of the time. Newcastle 1, Manchester City 1

Wolverhampton vs. Wigan
Wolverhampton have not been doing well, but Wigan have been terrible and Wolves should get a victory. Wolverhampton 1, Wigan 0

Aston Villa vs. Tottenham
Neither team has had the strongest defense and both like to attack so I expect this game to be filled with goals. In the end, Tottenham have the better strikers as they edge Villa for an away victory. Tottenham 3, Aston Villa 2

Arsenal vs. Chelsea
People seemed convinced that Chelsea were improved against Tottenham, but I am not fully convinced. Lampard should be ready for a start, but without a full strength Drogba, I expect Arsenal to have a chance, but they will only get a draw. Arsenal 1, Chelsea 1

Last Week: 1-2
Total: 77-95
