The Premier League is back after the international break, also known as a boring weekend, and we welcome Rabbie Serumula to the game. Rabbie is a City fan (2 Citizens? What’s going on here?) and earns his supper working for a celestial brand of newspaper. Follow him on Twitter for news and more.
Rabbie: Man United 2 -2 Arsenal WP
Man United have the edge to take this one especially while playing at Old Trafford and trying to shed their form that has dipped recently. This match will be a 2-2 draw with Man United scoring the equaliser on the last minute, possible by Ibrahimovic.
Dirk: Man United 1 – 2 Arsenal
It’s a game you look for on the fixture list, but this won’t be like the games used to be. Arsenal I think will be the dominant side and for some flurries from United, Arsenal to settle in for a good away 3 points.
Marcel: United 1 – 0 Arsenal
It’s a tough game to call with Sanchez injured on national duty. I think home win but it will all depend on who plays in defense for United, if Rojo plays it could be a blow out. More parking the bus? I don’t know.

Rabbie: Crystal Palace 1 – 4 Man City WP
The Citizens will pluck the wings off The Eagles. We are gunning for The Reds on that number one spot. The clash with Crystal Palace will see them get a 4 -1 beating.
Dirk: Crystal Palace 0 – 3 Man City WP
The draw against Boro was a mere blip on the screen. City will show that they’re back on track with a strong win against a Palace side that haven’t really gotten going this season.
Marcel: Palace 0 – 1 City WP
City should win. No, City will win but I might as well roll a dice to find the score. Or, City have a ‘mare and just scrape it with all their players having played for their countries and being fatigued. I want to pick a big number but I just suspect Palace will have more energy with less internationals.

RESULT: Palace 1 – 2 City
Rabbie: Everton 1 – 0 Swansea
The Swans have lost all but one draw with Watford in their last 5 games in the Premier league. They are not going into the match with Everton with bags of confidence. And Everton got a 5-nil throbbing themselves. So this clash will be a good watch. I see an upset thought, The Swans need this win more, they will get a 1-0 victory over The Toffees
Dirk: Everton 2 – 0 Swansea
Everton were extremely disappointing against Chelsea, but they’ve been making progress this season. I expect them to show once again how far they’ve come against a Swansea side that seem unsure of what kind of side they are.
Marcel: Everton 1 – 0 Swansea
When you look at the top of the table after 10 games it means nothing, but when you’re at the bottom and winless the writing is really on the wall. Bradley needs to turn things around in results but this is away at a team who on paper should be pushing for top 6.

— Liverpool FC (@LFC) November 14, 2016
Rabbie: Southampton 2 – 0 Liverpool
I need Southampton to win so Man City can take its rightful place at the top of the table after beating Crystal Palace. But The Reds know that a win is their only option with Chealsea, Man City and Arsenal right behind. Playing away at St. Mary’s Stadium will not deter Liverpool. They will smash Southampton 2-0
Dirk: Southampton 2 – 2 Liverpool WP
Saints have been good, and against a side that have had the habit of raiding them for their star players expect their performance to be raised. Entertaining draw as both teams go for the win.
Marcel: Southampton 1 – 2 Liverpool
Surely the first team won’t lose to the feeder team again (March 20 Southampton won 3-2)? I really hate the international break, there’s always an uncertainty about the players fitness when they return especially when we make picks on the Monday. Lots of quality in the Liverpool team at the moment. They should win.

RESULT: Southampton 0 – 0 Liverpool
Rabbie: Stoke 1 – 0 Bournemouth
12th and 13th spots on the table, they know that a win can see either of them climb up the table by about 3 slots. This will be a war. But I can bet R365 that Stoke will take it 1-0 at home. Did you see what I did there? lol
Dirk: Stoke 2 – 1 Bournemouth
Stoke’s last 4 games have seen them pick up 10 points. At home they should continue this form.
Marcel: Stoke 2 – 0 Bournemouth
This isn’t the same team referred to when you say “on a winter’s night at Stoke” under Tony Pulis. This Stoke team play an attractive passing game and can be devastating on their day. Bournemouth away, just not good enough to be honest.

— Hull City (@HullCity) November 15, 2016
Rabbie: Sunderland 0 – 0 Hull
Sunderland have done a lot of losing this season. The Tigers havent been too amazing themselves. This will be a match of redemption for both teams. I see it end in a goaless draw.
Dirk: Sunderland 1 – 1 Hull
A proper early season relegation 6 pointer here. I see it being a draw and not really being any help to either side.
Marcel: Sunderland 0 – 1 Hull City
So Sunderland scrambled a win in their previous outing, does this mean they have found the road to Premier League survival? I don’t think so. Hull are nothing if not scrappy while Sunderland are just woeful.

RESULT: Sunderland 3 – 0 Hull
Rabbie: Watford 0 – 1 Leicester
Everyone is watching The Foxes, there will be no more coming from behind with guns blazing to win the entire league again. But they still a bit of fire in them. Watford comes from a 6-1 annihilation by the The Reds. No one will be taking nonsense when they clash. But I think the defending champs will win 1-0 in this match
Dirk: Watford 1 – 2 Leicester
Quite hard one to predict really. Both sides are unpredictable but Leicester have been a little bit better lately, and without a mid-week distraction they should have enough to see off Watford.
Marcel: Watford 1 – 1 Leicester
Last season Leicester did the double on Watford but they are not the same team. I think only a brave man would back Watford to win this game but Leicester are uninspiring and there’s no dilly ding dilly dong about them.

RESULT: Watford 2 – 1 Leicester
Rabbie: Tottenham 0 – 0 West Ham
If the current form we have seen from Spurs recently is something to go by, we may see another draw when they face West Ham. But The Irons are also coming from a 1 all draw with Stoke City. Something tells me this will not be a very electrified game of football. Spurs are in a position to settle for a draw should West Ham bring it the to The lane.
Dirk: Tottenham 2 – 1 West Ham WP
A London derby here! Two good sides, but one is still unbeaten in the league this season and they should have enough about them to make sure this continues.
Marcel: Tottenham 1 – 0 West Ham WP
I quite enjoyed West Ham last season but some of the fans are annoying me this season with their whole stadium prima-donna nonsense. It would suit me if they relegate but that’s not likely at the moment. Spurs are the better team with the better squad, injuries will be telling and whether Payet can produce something sublime.

RESULT: Tottenham 3 – 2 West Ham
Rabbie: Boro 0 – 3 Chelsea WP
It will rain goals at Riverside Stadium. Boro have not been netting any so its only fair that when Chelsea gets there, Boro shot-stopper Dimitrios Konstantopoulos will pick the ball up from his net three times in their 3 – 0 defeat to the Pensioners.
Dirk: Boro 1 – 0 Chelsea
An upset I know but I just got a feeling about this one. Boro have been excellent the last few weeks, and should put Chelsea under pressure. It’s my pick for an upset.
Marcel: Boro 0 – 3 Chelsea WP
Chelsea are on fire. This will be their seventh game in a row without conceding a goal and Boro will be lucky to keep the goals down to three or less. If Chelski are injury free this could be entertaining.

RESULT: Boro 0 – 1 Chelsea
Rabbie: West Brom 2 – 1 Burnley WP
I see a high paced game when these two clash. Solomon Rondon will be fit the outing against Burnley after the international break. And he will net the winner as Albion cruise to a 2 – 1 win over Burnley.
Dirk: West Brom 1 – 1 Burnley
Too close to call, both in ok form and neither has a player really playing in the peak of their form. Decent point for both side as they look to continue decent runs.
Marcel: WBA 1 – 0 Burnley WP
I want Burnley to win this game because WBA are the kind of rubbish I don’t want to watch in the Prem. Can we just vote them down to the Championship and bring Newcastle back? No? Oh ok, Pulis to bore Burnley to sleep and burgle a goal in the second half while everyone in the stadium is fast asleep.
