Swansea v Aston Villa, Saturday 15:00
Swansea are favourites to win this one. Surprisingly both mangers under pressure to win after only nine games into the season. Villa are on a terrible run with one win from the start of the season. If you are a Villa fan you want a result and you want one quickly. I think it’s a great time to play Swansea because they haven’t won in six.
Swansea need a win and Garry Monk will be confident that they can get it against Villa with the run Villa are on. Sherwood needs to send his team out with a performance. I think that they’ll sneak it. Home advantage will play a massive part in this one. I’m going for a 2-1 in this one.
Stoke v Watford, Saturday 15:00
Stoke have been getting better and better as the season has gone on and I can see them keeping that form going at home to Watford. Watford have been good, but not great and I can see Stoke winning easily. An easy home win and Bojan to score after his winner against the Swans last weekend.
West Ham v Chelsea, Saturday 15:00
Chelsea would be more worried if West Ham were away. 17 points this season and 13 have been away. They have to start doing that at home. They’ve only one once at home. Chelsea are on the way back. They were brilliant in midweek. I don’t know how they didn’t win the game. I fancy Chelsea 2-1.
Arsenal v Everton, Saturday 17:30
I think Arsenal will win. Everton have to play better than last week. Howard Kendall’s passing on the morning of the United game sent Everton into a spiral of sorrow and the players never recovered. I expect them to be better, but I also think that Arsenal’s result in midweek might work against them and that they won’t be at full throttle.
Wenger can make changes and freshen up his team. Ramsey is out injured, but he can bring in Oxlade-Chamberlain who is another very good young footballer. I think Arsenal will win this one, but not as easy as the scoreline will suggest. I’m going for Arsenal to win 3-1 with Giroud to score.
Sunderland v Newcastle, Sunday 12:00
They’re both in such a dire position they need a win. They won’t settle for a draw. The win Newcastle got against Norwich will give them confidence. Sunderland are five points off safety and the gap is growing all the time. They have to win at home. Big Sam will want to win this. A winning start against Newcastle will be a great result and a great way to start.
I know Newcastle fans will be saying they’re too good for Sunderland, but I don’t see it that way. Sunderland have done ok in the last couple of games without being cynical. I can see a 2-0 win for Sunderland. I can see them keeping Newcastle out while getting a couple themselves. Steven Fletcher should be back and looking to get himself a goal.
Bournemouth v Spurs, Sunday 14:00
I fancy Spurs. I know they didn’t have a good performance midweek, but the Europa League does that to the Premier League teams. He played a lot of guys who haven’t been playing like Tripper, Townsend and Dembele. The big boys will be back for the weekend.
I think Bournemouth are struggling and will struggle. They don’t have enough quality in the side and it’s going to be a long winter. They were hammered against Man City last time out which will have been a lesson about what this Premier League is like. I don’t think Spurs will hammer them. I can see both teams scoring, but a 2-1 and a 3-1 win for Spurs with Christian Eriksen getting a goal.
Man United v Man City, Sunday 14:00
I don’t think City would be happy with a draw in the form they’re in. If I was City I would want to win the game. But you have to respect the opposition and where you are going into Old Trafford against Manchester United your biggest rivals. If Silva and Aguero were there I’d be backing City all the way, but they’re missing and I think that just evens it out slightly. I think we might be getting a score draw. I can see this being a 1-1 draw.
United will not want to get beaten. They will want to win, but they won’t want to lose at home to City. They need find goals. They aren’t scoring enough goals. Depay has been poor, Rooney is struggling and you can’t expect Martial to carry the side.
Liverpool v Southampton, Sunday 16:15
Liverpool have become the draw specialists of this season. They don’t win many games and they don’t lose many games and fixing that is going to be Klopp’s first job. It will take time. After two games he probably has more questions than answers. Southampton are on a good run and they somehow threw away a 2-0 lead against Leicester last week. They will feel that they should have won that game, but they will come to Liverpool full of confidence.
I think Klopp will get his win. It should be a really open game with lots of chances and lots of goals, but I think it’ll be the opposite. I think 1-0 for Liverpool. If he picks Benteke I’d be looking at him to get the first goal. They don’t have a host of goalscorers. Liverpool have only scored more goal in one game this season and that was the 3-2 win against Aston Villa.
