Andy Gray: Back Arsenal, Chelsea and Newcastle to supply a tasty treble

He may be living it up in the UAE, but we asked Andy Gray to put down the sunscreen and pina coloda and tell us what he thinks about this weekend's Premier League action. And that's what he did. Extensively. Thankfully, we listened through the tapes and here are the key points on what he thinks will happen this Saturday.

by Aidan Elder | November 23, 2013

Everton v Liverpool

Saturday 12.45pm, Goodison Park

It’s the latest edition of the Merseyside Derby and rarely in recent seasons have both sides felt so good heading into it.

Key points:

  • Everton’s performances had dropped off slightly before the international break
  • Liverpool are in the better form and will score
  • The form is less important and Everton are capable of winning

Arsenal v Southampton

Saturday 3pm, Emirates Stadium

It’s normally something of a home banker, but Southampton’s excellent form makes for an interesting showdown.

Key points:

  • There’s nothing flukey or lucky about Southampton’s excellent defensive record
  • The international break suits Arsenal who still lack depth in their squad
  • It’s got the potential to be a cracking goalfest

Fulham v Swansea

Saturday 3pm, Craven Cottage

The Cottagers are in poor form and the challenge of Swansea is going to test them even further.

Key points:

  • The desperation to make up from a hammering at Anfield will get a decent performance out of Fulham
  • Swansea have been a bit up and down, but they’re always capable of scoring
  • It’ll be a tight game and some fence-setting may be required

Hull v Crystal Palace

Saturday 3pm,KC Stadium

The Tigers have had some high points but also some low points this season while for Palace it’s all been pretty poor.

Key points:

  • Hull don’t have a huge amount of class, but they work hard and can grind out results
  • The prospect of a new manager coming in my improve the Palace performance, but don’t count on it
  • It’ll be low scoring but Bruce’s side can edge it

Andy’s Bet

Hull 1-0 >>> DESKTOP | MOBILE

Newcastle v Norwich

Saturday 3pm, St. James’ Park

After getting his fair of stick, a couple of big wins have changed the mood on Tyneside. Norwich need to get a spoonful of Pardew’s medicine.

Key points:

  • Chris Hughton has done well at Norwich, but he needs to start getting results to ease the pressure
  • Newcastle are finally getting the rewards for playing some good football
  • Can’t see past a home win

Newcastle to win to nil >>> DESKTOP | MOBILE

Stoke v Sunderland

Saturday 3pm, Britannia Stadium

Is it too soon to call this a relegation six-pointer? If it’s not, this is definitely one.

Key points:

  • Stoke have had a few slices of luck in certain games this season
  • The Potters have been scoring plenty of goals and Sunderland’s defence is far from solid
  • Stoke can end Poyet’s mini-revival

Andy’s Bet

Stoke 1-0 >>> DESKTOP | MOBILE

West Ham v Chelsea Saturday

5.30pm, Upton Park

It’s a cross-London derby and despite the vast differences in resources, this could be a tight one.

Key points:

  • Chelsea have played some nice football, but they’re let themselves down too often with poor performances
  • West Ham will defend well, but they won’t get the goals they need to win a game like this
  • Mourinho will get them up for this game and the Blues will win

Andy’s Bet

Chelsea to win to nil >>> DESKTOP | MOBILE
