Thought I’d do some deep analysis this week before posting (or looking at last games resuts). ME loves to comment so I’ve added all his comments too.

Its been a while since I’ve done a post so I’m not surprise there isn’t much being said.

Wolverhampton
WWDWL
2-1
Leeds United
LLWLW
Wolverhampton 1-0 Leeds United 19 Feb 2021
Leeds United 0-1 Wolverhampton 19 Oct 2020
Leeds United 0-3 Wolverhampton 07 Mar 2018
Wolverhampton 4-1 Leeds United 22 Nov 2017

Wolves are one of those teams that I think are doing better than they are and also doing worse than I think they are. I think the youth of the team confuses me. Despite their young team age they seem to be playing with a spirit and I fancy them to take Leeds in a close game.

Burnley
DWDLL
2-0
West Bromwich Albion
DLLDL
West Bromwich Albion 0-0 Burnley 19 Oct 2020
West Bromwich Albion 1-2 Burnley 31 Mar 2018
Burnley 0-1 West Bromwich Albion 19 Aug 2017
Burnley 2-2 West Bromwich Albion 06 May 2017
West Bromwich Albion 4-0 Burnley 21 Nov 2016

Burnley have moved out of the relegation zone and don’t appear to be in much trouble. That said, a result against a team in the bottom three will galvanize their position. I want the boing-boings to stay up but only if Big Sam goes. Sorry WBA fans.

Fulham
DWDLD
1-0
Sheffield United
LLWLW
Sheffield United 1-1 Fulham 18 Oct 2020
Fulham 3-0 Sheffield United 06 Mar 2018
Sheffield United 4-5 Fulham 21 Nov 2017

ME:”Fulham will ease past Sheffield Utd in this must win game for someone.”

I must win for Sheff United and in the end they will play hard for owt.

Liverpool
LLLWW
3-1
Everton
LLDWL
Everton 2-2 Liverpool 17 Oct 2020
Everton 0-0 Liverpool 21 Jun 2020
Liverpool 5-2 Everton 04 Dec 2019
Everton 0-0 Liverpool 03 Mar 2019
Liverpool 1-0 Everton 02 Dec 2018

ME:”Liverpool need to regain their form and it could be this game.. derby games always take on a different form and Liverpool need some bragging rights.”

Liverpool losing at Anfield. Of course that’s going to happen. Liverpool losing at Anfield twice in a row. Well thats not far fetched really. Liverpool losing at Anfield three times. You sure that can happen? Liverpool losing four on the bonk at Anfield? I’m not taking those odds.

Southampton
LLLLL
0-2
Chelsea
WWWWD
2
Chelsea 3-3 Southampton 17 Oct 2020
Chelsea 0-2 Southampton 26 Dec 2019
Southampton 1-4 Chelsea 06 Oct 2019
Chelsea 0-0 Southampton 02 Jan 2019
Southampton 0-3 Chelsea 07 Oct 2018

ME: “Chelski will win and will stay under the radar for a few weeks.. then the pundits will be talking about their great form and super prospects since Frank was sacked.”

I’m picking Chelsea becaause the form says Southampton can’t win and Chelsea can’t lose. I can’t believe that both of these will flip so it will probably be a draw but I’m sticking with the form.

Arsenal
WLLDW
0-2
Manchester City
WWWWW
Manchester City 1-0 Arsenal 17 Oct 2020
Manchester City 3-0 Arsenal 17 Jun 2020
Arsenal 0-3 Manchester City 15 Dec 2019
Manchester City 3-1 Arsenal 03 Feb 2019
Arsenal 0-2 Manchester City 12 Aug 2018

ME:”2 standout games this week. The Gunners will surprise Man Pretty with the first goal but they will lose two late goals..”

I know this will be a clean sheet.  The question is really how many Citeh will score.

Aston Villa
DWLWL
1-2
Leicester City
WDWLD
Leicester City 0-1 Aston Villa 18 Oct 2020
Leicester City 4-0 Aston Villa 09 Mar 2020
Aston Villa 1-4 Leicester City 08 Dec 2019

ME:”Villa v Leicester could be a good game but I think villa will be taken down by two mistakes. Well that spoilt a good game.”

Leicester are making a legitimate push for top 4. Aston Villa are the great pretenders. I predict a fairly standard 2-1 game.

 

Manchester United
DDWDL
2-0
Newcastle
LWLWL

 

Newcastle 1-4 Manchester United 17 Oct 2020
Manchester United 4-1 Newcastle 26 Dec 2019
Newcastle 1-0 Manchester United 06 Oct 2019
Newcastle 0-2 Manchester United 02 Jan 2019
Manchester United 3-2 Newcastle 06 Oct 2018

ME:”Hate it but Man Utd will cruise past Newcastle….. 3 – 0 may be a little optimistic but I’ll stick there.”

Its suprising that one is near the top. It’s not surprising one is near the bottom. I want Newcastle to go down… so GGMU…. come on you reds! Neither of these teams really seem much better than middle of the road – i

West Ham United
WDWLW
1-2
Tottenham Hotspur
LWLLL
Tottenham Hotspur 3-3 West Ham United 18 Oct 2020
Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 West Ham United 23 Jun 2020
West Ham United 2-3 Tottenham Hotspur 23 Nov 2019
Tottenham Hotspur 0-1 West Ham United 27 Apr 2019
West Ham United 0-1 Tottenham Hotspur 20 Oct 2018

ME:”Spurs need to show what they really can do and if they raise their work rate should skip past the hammers, otherwise …….”

I should pick West Ham – look at the losses for Spuds! West Ham seem to be catching lightning in a bottle but it has to be a small bottle, right?

Brighton and Hove Albion
DDWWD
2-1
Crystal Palace
LLWWL
Crystal Palace 1-1 Brighton and Hove Albion 18 Oct 2020
Brighton and Hove Albion 0-1 Crystal Palace 29 Feb 2020
Crystal Palace 1-1 Brighton and Hove Albion 16 Dec 2019
Crystal Palace 1-2 Brighton and Hove Albion 09 Mar 2019
Brighton and Hove Albion 3-1 Crystal Palace 04 Dec 2018

ME:”Brighton and palace will produce a dull goalless draw.”

Both teams are inconsistent so this will be a home win, a draw, or an away win. I’m going to guess the first.
