Another weekend of goals and and it was also a case of Merseyside v London which saw a win for North London and a draw. Everton got a pummeling down south whilst Spurs stole a draw in the death featuring some questionable decisions. The penalty decision at Anfield turned a correct score prediction into nothing. For the Arsenal, it seems I wasn’t quite as generous in my predictions. My prediction was 2-1, but the Arsenal routed Everton 5-1. Apparently Everton fans were piling out before half time. Then of course my prediction of the Watford v Chelsea game, that couldnt have been more wrong. The Blues were trounced 4-1 having been down to 10 men after 30 minutes. To be fair the game was 1-1 till the 84th minute when Chelsea fell apart like an England Ashes batting line up.
It was two correct results and a correct score. Arsenal’s win added to the Swansea v Leicester ending in a 1-1 draw and not a 2-2 draw gave two correct results, whilst Man Utd bounced back to give a correct score as they beat Huddersfield 2-0.
So to this weekends predictions and lets see if I can do better this week.
- Chelsea 2-1 West Brom Blues back on track
- Everton 0-2 Crystal Palace Eagles give Blues headache
- Huddersfield 1-2 Bournemouth Cherries away win
- Man City 2-0 Leicester City Another home win on the board
- Newcastle Utd 1-1 Man Utd Magpies hold the Reds
- Southampton 0-3 Liverpool Klopps reds thrash hosts
- Stoke City 2-2 Brighton honours even
- Swansea City 1-2 Burnley Clarets hold Swans rise
- Tottenham 1-3 Arsenal Gunners glory in derby
- West Ham 1-1 Watford Hammers hold Watford to draw
Some interesting predictions with the interesting one being the North London derby. A couple of weeks ago I’d have said a home win, but with the signings that Arsenal made and the way they took apart Everton, I think with the space at Wembley will give the Gunners some ability to cause the defence some issues. If they can get at the Spurs defence as Liverpool did through Salah, I think that will be them taking the win.
Man Utd travel to Newcastle Utd, but I think the Magpies might just throw a spanner in the works. Man Utd should be favourites, but if Newcastle can dig in, then they can steal a point against the Reds. On the subject of Reds, Liverpool will put the disappointment of the 2-2 draw and storm to a 3-0 win on the south coast.
More disappointment for Everton as they lose to London opposition, this time at home to Crystal Palace. Fellow strugglers Swansea look certain to lose at home against Burnley who have impressed greatly this season.
