Friday night we start the Premier League weekend with a match between Bournemouth and Brighton. A bit of a slow start to the weekend after last week’s 5 -0 thrashing of Liverpool at the hands of City. Check out the video rant explaining the finer details of Sadio Mane’s sending off in the same match. The chap raises some important points about the rule book’s protection of players.
RESULT: Bournemouth 2 – 1 Brighton
Bournemouth 1 – 1 Brighton
Brighton finally scored and should carry some of that good feeling into this game, but I think this is the game Bouremouth and get themselves back on track.
Bournemouth 1 – 0 Brighton
I think this is game that Bournemouth will have targeted and its a massive game unless they want to be chasing daylight already. Were pretty good at home last season.
Bournemouth 0 – 1 Brighton
Four defeats on the trot before this match and a possible fifth on the way if you believe my prediction. Brighton won their last outing against West Brom and drew the previous match against Watford.
RESULT: Crystal Palace 0 – 1 Southampton
Crystal Palace 0 – 1 Southampton
If anyone will win it’ll be the Saints. Palace showing a lot of short termism and I really don’t think Hodgeson will stop the rot.
Because Crystal Palace are a joke of a club and don’t really deserve points! But in all honesty, their squad should be a lot better!
Palace have parted ways with De Boer after 4 straight defeats. Roy Hodgson is the new manager if the papers are to be believed as I write this. I can’t think of a more clueless clown to have as a manager. Southampton have their own problems, draw for me.
RESULT: Huddersfield 1 – 1Leicester
Huddersfield 0 – 1 Leicester
Huddersfield started well, but the game against West Ham showed how hard life will be for them. I think Leicester will find a goal here and win it.
I really like Huddersfield, but then again Leicester know the dark arts a little bit better than others
This could be an entertaining match with both sides hoping to score on the break. Leicester should win but I think Hudders at home is a tough match considering how deep they sit. If Huddersfield can keep their shape I predict a draw.
RESULT: Liverpool 1 – 1 Burnely
Liverpool 2 – 1 Burnely
Burnley like to beat Liverpool but Liverpool have a bit more fortitude this season. At home they’ll win but not by as much as they’d like to.
Even without Mane Liverpool should easily beat Burnley. They will probably stuff this one up!!!
Liverpool got smashed at City over the weekend. Glorious, wasn’t it? No such luck this week as Burnley come to Anfield. Even without Sadio Mane Liverpool should be able to push the Clarets aside unless of course they want to kung-fu kick more goalkeepers.
Mane misses the next match
RESULT: Newcastle 2 – 1 Stoke
Even away from home I think Stoke having something exciting about them this season. I think they can go steal the points at Newcastle.
Newcastle are starting to click, Stoke are not very good away from home. Think the Magpies will snatch it
A good win last time out for Newcastle and a really solid home draw for Stoke against United. Can we read too much into that? I don’t know, Stoke are becoming really strong at home but on the road they are not the same team. I’m leaning towards a home win but history says they will draw.
RESULT: Watford 0 – 6 Man City
Watford are a lot better than last season but City are galloping right now. I don’t see them stopping with a trip to Watford. Good solid 3 points for the Citizens
Man City are starting to look dangerous, Watford are a better team than last season but I expect a comfortable victory for the Citizens
When the oil money rolls into town just about everyone falls over and plays dead. Or do they? Watford are a plucky side, expect the match to be difficult for City’s touch players but they should prevail. Jesus is on fire at the moment.
RESULT West Brom 0 – 0 West Ham
Close game ending in a draw for me. West Brom frustrated last time out and West Ham relieved after their win. I think they’ll both almost do enough to win.
The two West teams are really rubbish to watch. What I advise is to catch up on Game of Thrones during this game
Bilic might be wondering when the chop is coming for him with recent form but a solid performance against Huddersfield saw his side fight for him and get a well deserved win. West Brom at home is a tough match for any visiting team and I think it will be a riot but end in a draw.
RESULT Tottenham 0 – 0 Swansea
Harry Kane is scoring again which is bad news for Swansea who need some inspiration from somewhere otherwise they’ll be looking like relegation contenders again very soon.
I hate Spurs. A lot! But no contest here, easy win for Spurs
Spurs are playing in Europe tonight and presuming they come through without injuries to key players, I expect them to dominate Swansea and have a fun afternoon. I’m going for a 2 goal cushion because higher scores aren’t common but it could be four or five.
RESULT Chelsea 0 – 0 Arsenal
It has to be a Chelsea win right? They scored a few mid week, and I don’t see enough about Arsenal to stop Chelsea – especially after that performance against Liverpool.
Arsenal have to get used to Europa league, they struggled with away games after Europe in CL. Coupled with that its also Michael Oliver and Arsenal have never won an away game he has reffed!
More pain for the Gunners faithful. Any trip to Stamford Bridge is tough but when you’ve been ripped apart by Liverpool recently, Chelsea isn’t the ideal place to go to look for confidence. Then again, an upset win for Wenger will see them grow in confidence and perhaps push for a title contenders spot.
RESULT: Manchester United 4 – 0 Everton
If Rooney turns up it might be different, but with his mind elsewhere they’ve had no focal point up top. United to win here at home.
Everton proved in the game against Spurs that they will be nothing more than a than a top 7 side, Lukaku to make them pay.
The injury to Pogba could be crucial to the outcome of this match. Who will take up his position in the midfield? Will it be donkey? (The frow with the elbows) Will we see a change in formation? Tough to call but a home win for me regardless.
