The highlight of the week for me so far is Liverpool failing to beat WBA and the holidays officially kicking off. Other than that Pep has broken the EPL record for most consecutive wins (15) Arsenal failed to beat West Ham and Chelsea have the awkward task of facing Juventus in the Champions League when it resumes in 2018.
RESULT: Leicester City 0 – 3 Crystal Palace
Leicester City 2 – 1 Crystal Palace
Leicester are in a strong vein of form and Palace are improving, at home I think Leicester will edge it.
Leicester City 2 – 0 Crystal Palace
Leicester are on fire right now and are playing some scintillating football, they will be too much for Hodgsons men
Leicester City 2 – 1 Crystal Palace
Someone lit a firecracker under Leicester. They are playing like it’s 2015 and the title is up for grabs
MATCH: Arsenal 1 – 0 Newcastle
Arsenal have been in strange form lately, but at home against a very average looking Newcastle they surely will win it?
Arsenal at home are a far superior team from Arsenal away. Newcastle struggling.
Newcastle look like they headed back to Division 1 at the moment. Arsenal also not amazing this week but surely superior to the Magpies
RESULT: Brighton 0 – 0 Burnley
It’s a game with draw written all over it. Burnley punching way above their weight but Brighton are a decent side and I think could get a very needed point here.
Burnley are on a special run and I dont think Brighton will have enough to stop them
Burnley are having a great season, long may it continue. More pressure on Spurs and the Kloppings to win
RESULT: Chelsea 1 – 0 Southampton
Chelsea have been far from consistent this season, but at home against a just as inconsistent Saints side, they should have enough for the win.
Chelsea too good for the Saints. Especially at the Bridge
Chelsea should be able to see off the Saints at home despite the blip against West Ham although with only 6 clean sheets in 17, who knows.
RESULT: Stoke City 0 – 3 West Ham
West Ham are suddenly looking a difficult opponent, and Stoke fans will be wondering when it’s one loss too many for Sparky. It could be today…
Bore Draw. Yes
So West Ham beat Chelsea the other day and then drew with Arsenal. Perhaps I’m giving Stoke too much credit here.
RESULT: Watford 1 – 4 Huddersfield Town
Watford are one of my favourite other sides this season and should be strong enough at home to see off the Terriers.
I like Huddersfield, but I also like being right so I cant back them here
Watford were shocking against Palace after getting into an early lead. Huddersfield are just shocking since September with just 3 wins in 15 matches.
RESULT: Man. City 4 -1 Tottenham
It has to be City doesn’t it? Spurs are always difficult to play against and it won’t be easy, but 16 in a row? I’m backing City to do just that!
Make that 16 in a row. Will someone stop them please?
Expect nothing less than a Spurs defeat in Manchester, even at the emptihad
RESULT: West Brom 1 – 2 Man. United
I was expecting a reaction from United against Bournemouth and it wasn’t really that at all. I think West Brom could be stubborn enough to get a point here.
Man Utd should win at West Brom without breaking too much of a sweat
Another less than adequate performance in mid-week. Hopefully the impending return of Pogba spurs them on to a 2 goal win
RESULT: Bournemouth 4 – 0 Liverpool
Liverpool looking better, though Sane must start passing in his team mates. Bournemouth aren’t the exciting prospect of last season. Liverpool 3 points here.
Same as United, should be pretty straight forward for LFC
Liverpool should win, or at least put up a better display than United did on Wednesday but I need to pick up points and Kloppings and co have dropped points against lesser teams before.
RESULT: Everton 3 – 1 Swansea
Everton are refreshed under Big Sam and pushing themselves up the table extremely quickly. Swansea aren’t improving and away here they should lose.
Everton are looking decent since Allardyce arrived, Swansea look diabolical.
Swansea look to be improving but Everton are better and improving faster

This season we score things a little differently, we’ll award 3 points to the outright winner or 1 each for draws. The loser gets none!
