Premier League, Week 14 preview: Moyes vs. Martinez the highlight of Wednesday

In a midweek round with few marquee fixtures, it's the game that pits Manchester United against Everton that will attract the most attention.

Michael Regan

Everything you need to know about the Premier League's midweek round of matches. Or, at least, everything you need to know in one sentence about each match up. Brevity!

Crystal Palace 1-0 West Ham United

Gazing into the crystal ball and getting a glimpse of the past, we see that Week 14 kicked off with the lowly Crystal Palace taking all three points to put themselves within three of safety. Full match report here.

Arsenal vs. Hull City

Emirates Stadium; 19:45 GMT/ 14:45 ET

If you think Hull scoring three against Liverpool means they're now going to beat the team at the top of the table, well, at least beers will be on you if you place that bet.

Liverpool vs. Norwich City

Anfield; 19:45 GMT/ 14:45 ET

Speaking of Liverpool, their embarrassed squad isn't going to lose out to the Canaries simply because Norwich managed to put a measly goal Palace last time out.

Manchester United vs. Everton

Old Trafford; 19:45 GMT/ 14:45 ET

Who cares about the actual football; we all know this one is about Roberto Martinez and his Toffees having a point to prove to David Moyes.

Southampton vs. Aston Villa

St. Mary's; 19:45 GMT/ 14:45 ET

Lambert's Lions head to Southampton to take notes on how better to emulate the way Mauricio Pochettino guides his side.

Stoke City vs. Cardiff City

Britannia Stadium; 19:45 GMT/ 14:45 ET

11 goals for Cardiff, 12 for Stoke, 13 points each, zero chance that this game will get top billing on Match of the Day -- enjoy!

Sunderland vs. Chelsea

Stadium of Light; 19:45 GMT/ 14:45 ET

Chelsea's away form may not be fantastic, but considering Sunderland still haven't won on the road (and still barely look like players that have been introduced to one another), it's probably safe to call this result in advance.

Swansea City vs. Newcastle

Liberty Stadium; 19:45 GMT/ 14:45 ET

That's four in a row for Newcastle now, but only one of those wins came on the road, so facing a Swansea side much more eager to attack at home might put a cramp in the visitors' style.

Fulham vs. Tottenham Hotspur

Craven Cottage; 20:00 GMT / 15:00 ET

Tune in to find out if Martin Jol was really the problem, and if Andre Villas-Boas will follow him to the unemployment line.

West Bromwich Albion vs. Manchester City

The Hawthorns; 20:00 GMT / 15:00 ET

Nine goals in their last two appearances should mean this outing is simple for City, but despite the goals raining down at home, Manuel Pellegrini's side haven't scored on the road since October 19.
