Last weekend Nick won somewhat convincingly (8-5). So we’ve hastily arranged a rematch to make sure it wasn’t just a fluke. Chat to us on twitter about your predictions. Are we way off the mark? @nickreporter @marcelsigg #FootieFan
Sunderland 2 v 0 Stoke City
DG: 2-0 Stoke
Stoke did me a massive favour last weekend and I’m backing them to get a result again against the strugglers.
MS: Sunderland 0 – 1 Stoke
Sunderland remain junk. Stoke are slowly but surely getting the results.
Manchester City 3 v 1 Southampton
DG: 3-1 City
City will be frothing at the mouth after last week’s thumping against Liverpool. Southampton should expect a backlash.
MS: Manchester 3 – 0 Southampton
Southampton have been poor lately. City need to recoup some face after the humiliation of the Liverpool game. Expect them to be tight at the back and slick on attack.
Crystal Palace 5 v 1 Newcastle United
DG: 2-0 Crystal Palace
Newcastle have been woeful.Crystal Palace confident.
MS: Crystal Palace 1 – 0 Newcastle
Every week I’ve backed Newcastle to come back from disaster and every week they disappoint. Palace my new 2nd favourite team.
Bournemouth 3 v 3 Everton
DG: Everton 3 – 0
Everton should pick up three points here.
MS: Bournemouth 0 – 1 Everton
Everton are on the rise, Bournemouth although better than I expected shouldn’t be in this fixture.
Aston Villa 2 v 3 Watford
DG: Villa 2-1
A lowly battle which doesn’t inspire much confidence. I’ll go with Villa to get a result and begin their turnaround.
MS: Villa 0 – 2 Watford
Watford are exciting. They have a lot of pace, a lot like Palace in a way. Villa still have issues to iron out.
Leicester City 1 v 1 Manchester United
DG: 2-1 United
Unlikely top of the table clash. United weren’t great last week.
MS: Leicester 0 – 1 Manchester United
United were terrible last week and burgled a win. Still don’t concede a lot though and will see off Leicester’s run.
Tottenham Hotspur 0 v 0 Chelsea
DG: 1-0 Spurs
Interesting fixture this. Spurs the form side here but Chelsea are hard to predict.
MS: Spurs 3 – 1 Chelsea
Big game in London this week. Can the blues continue their recovery? Can Spurs carry on their impressive start? I’m backing Harry Kane and co.
West Ham United 1 v 1 West Bromwich Albion
DG: 2-0 West Ham
Decent chance for West Ham to bag three points.
MS: West Ham 1 – 0 WBA
West Ham have some injury problems but they should still have enough in them to get past WBA .. unless they play Andy Carrol .. in which case WBA will wn by 3.
Norwich City 1 v 1 Arsenal
DG: Arsenal 3-1
After dropping points last weekend, Arsenal can’t afford to lose here.
MS: Norwich 1 – 2 Arsenal
Norwich are a tricky side. The gunners should get the points but stranger things have happened.
Liverpool 1 v 0 Swansea City
DG: Liverpool 2-0
The Reds will be flying after dismantling City.
MS: Liverpool 3 – 0 Swansea
Swansea are on a horrible run. Liverpool played on Thursday night in Europe. Will the tired legs be able to keep up the high tempo pressing game of Klopp? Even if they are tired, LFC should walk this.
Final Score: NG: 4 – 4 MS
