Let’s get into the important stuff! There are less than 10 games left this season and Leicester are looking like they might just hold onto top spot to the end of the race. Here are our Head2Head predictions:
Norwich – Manchester City
Logan: 1 – 3
Fighting it out in the relegation zone Norwich could put up a fight initially, but City’s firepower will carry them over the line against a shaky defence that has conceded 54 goals this campaign.
Dirk: 0 – 3
City have a lot of players returning and should have more than enough fire power to push aside Norwich.
Marcel: 0 – 2
Last week I predicted a 4-0 win for City against Villa and I was tempted to do the same again but Norwich are feisty. City should still win but not in a landslide fashion.
Result: Norwich 0 – 0 Manchester City
Bournemouth – Swansea
Logan: 1 – 1
Another one too close to call. Both sides are floating above that dreaded relegation zone and will be desperate for all three points, but, to me, a draw is most likely here.
Dirk: 1 – 1
Close game. Both sides been getting into form and should cancel each other out.
Marcel: 0 – 1
Bournemouth have pulled off quite a few surprise results this season but I think Swansea have enough to win. Both have won their last two matches so it’s not about form and just raw guts on the day.
RESULT: Bournemouth 3 – 2 Swansea
Stoke City – Southampton
Logan: 2 – 1
With just two points separating these two teams it is a tough one to call. We all know that Stoke at home is no easy task so I will back the hosts here.
Dirk: 2 – 1
Stoke have found momentum again and the Saints have been up and down. At home Stoke to pip them and take the 3 points.
Difficult game to call really but I think Stoke’s new found style and quality signings will be enough to see off the tenacity of S’oton. I’m still not quite understanding why Charlie Austin doesn’t start.
RESULT: Stoke 1 – 2 Southampton
Aston Villa – Tottenham
Logan: 0 – 3
Poor, poor Villa. I don’t see them doing anything spectacular to upset an extremely solid looking Spurs side.
Dirk: 1 – 2
Spurs should have more than enough to beat Villa, can see Villa scoring one to give them hope but Spurs have momentum to close out the game.
Marcel: 0 – 1
Villa have been playing a lot better recently. Spurs are probably still hurting from the derby game where they dropped valuable points in the title race but should get things back on track here.
RESULT: Villa 0 – 2 Spurs
Leicester City – Newcastle
Logan: 1 – 0
As terrible as Newcastle have been lately I think it won’t be a walkover for the log leading Leicester. They will probably just edge it at home.
Dirk: 1 – 1
Newcastle need a result and I can see them holding Leicester here. McClaren will make sure if it is his last game they’ll have some fight about them.
Marcel: 2 – 1
Leicester to carry on their impressive form and the suffering at Newcastle will continue. Much as I want Newcastle to avoid relegation the players aren’t on the same page and Leicester are deadly on the counter.
RESULT: Leicester 1 – 0 Newcastle
Final scores: Logan 3 – Marcel 2 – Dirk 1
