As if the football wasn’t enough entertainment we now have round two of the spat between Conte and Jose to entertain us. In case you missed it, Jose dug up Conte’s passed involving alleged match-fixing and the short fella retorted with a jibe about Mourinho being a little man. We can’t wait for the next time they play each other. Manchester City probably face their biggest challenge when they take their dodgy defense to Liverpool who also have a frail back line, we’re hoping for goals, lots of them. Other matches of interest will be Chelsea against resurgent Leicester and Spurs against Everton.
MATCH: Chelsea 0 – 0 Leicester City
Chelsea 2 – 0 Leicester City
Chelsea are pushing United for second right now and with how Conte feels about the ‘little man’ Jose, they’ll have more than enough motivation for the win!
Chelsea 1 – 0 Leicester City
Chelsea to good for Leicester, even with Morata battling for form
Chelsea 2 – 1 Leicester City
Leicester are on an upwards curve but Chelsea are still a better team man for man, unless Morata misses all night long.
MATCH: Crystal Palace 1 -0 Burnley
Who would have thought Roy would have made this much of a difference at Palace, but Burnley have been amazingly good. Draw for me here.
Palace to stun Burnley, why not
The Palace star is starting to shine again while Burnley are finding it tough to keep producing week-in-week-out.
MATCH: Huddersfield 1 – 4 West Ham
West Ham have improved massively lately, and I think they’ll continue their improvement here with a good 3 points.
Hammers looking better at times, still dont score a lot but think they can sneak it
When you’re near the bottom you have to choose which battles to target and which fights you walk away from. I think Huddersfield at home against a fellow struggler would be a game they would target.
MATCH: Newcastle 1 – 1 Swansea
Benitez is getting a lot from a very average squad. I think Newcastle will be able to find a goal to win here.
Swansea are really bad
Newcastle are only 6 points off the bottom of the table, they will be targeting this match for all three to extend the gap.
MATCH: Watford 2 – 2 Southampton
Both teams haven’t been as good as they should be, and I think the Saints will struggle away from home here. Watford to win for me.
Boring game I think. But Watford the better side on paper so they sneak it
Watford are playing like they’ve already got 40 points and avoided relegation. The Saints could be lifted by the departure of Virgil after months of speculation.
MATCH: West Brom 2 – 0 Brighton
This is a strange as West Brom have not impressed at all, but Brighton haven’t looked convincing either. Draw for me.
Maybe even more boring. Dont think anyone sneaks this unless Mike Dean is reffing
West Brom are the worst team in the league for a reason. While they are draw-masters they only have 2 wins and Brighton look sharp enough to add to their woes.
MATCH: Tottenham 4 – 0 Everton
Spurs to win, Big Sam has made a difference but don’t think he can get a win at Wembley.
Everton to come unstuck against the countries worst professional football team
Everton’s only chance of playing at Wembley this season and they will blow it.
MATCH: Bournemouth 2 – 1 Arsenal
How bad have Arsenal been? Bournemouth to get a very important win here.
Arsenal and Bournemouth cant really defend, so I expect some goals. Maybe Alexis last game?
More disappointment for the Arsenal faithful after news that Sanchez has agreed terms with City
MATCH: Liverpool 4 – 3 Manchester City
There will be goals that’s for sure, but City will do enough to win here.
Because everyone enjoys seeing Liverpool lose at home.
I think this could be the first time City falter. Both attacks have goals in them normally but just perhaps Virgil adds more to the home defense than City have.
MATCH: Manchester United 3 – 0 Stoke City
It pains me as always to predict a United win, but boss-less Stoke will struggle away from home. Should be an easy 3 points.
Stoke… Not much more to say about that
A bit of warm weather training in Dubai should help the United lads overcome the frozen Stoke bunch

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!
