Matchday 6 -Picks and Post

I messed up the forms this week – some people have emails with last weeks games and no scores and some people have the right scores but he wrong games. I’ve included the scores and predictions here for everyone to check.

The short story is that my reference fixtures are sorted alphabetically and the secondary source is sorted by fixture date (which are all changing).

Anyway – should be sorted. Sorry it looks bad in a mobile – I’m looking for a fix and hope to have that done soon.

Your Comments

AA: “Pandemics suck.”
Yep. Premier league without fans under pandemic conditions sucks too. The games aren’t normal.

AM: “What a nightmare start. . . haha. Can’t even bring myself to look at last weeks total but I fear it may be the solitary point for United’s win at Newcastle. “
Lucky point that! I don’t think anyone has figured out the full impact of playing in a bubble, playing without a crowd, playing with or without Pogba, etc.

Aston Villa

Leeds United

Aston Villa 0-3 Leeds United 23 Oct 2020
Leeds United 1-1 Aston Villa 28 Apr 2019

Aston Villa 1-0 Leeds United 13 Apr 2018

The Villains have won four in a row. They won’t win five. Leeds are a good team, excellent on the counter. There is already talk of a statue in his honor at Elland Road:

Bielsa – The Thinker

Fulham

Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace 2-0 Fulham 02 Feb 2019
Fulham 0-2 Crystal Palace 11 Aug 2018

I can’t pick a team with no wins to win.

Liverpool
DLWWW
2-0
Sheffield United

Liverpool 2-0 Sheffield United 02 Jan 2020
Sheffield United 0-1 Liverpool 28 Sep 2019

VVD is out but this won’t impact Liverpools ability to outscore, out attack and out play most of the Premier League. Sheffield United are struggling. Easy stroll in the nearby Dales if you ask me.

Manchester United
WLWL
1-1
Chelsea
DWDLW
Chelsea 0-2 Manchester United 17 Feb 2020
Manchester United 4-0 Chelsea 11 Aug 2019
Manchester United 1-1 Chelsea 28 Apr 2019
Chelsea 2-2 Manchester United 20 Oct 2018
Manchester United 2-1 Chelsea 25 Feb 2018

Both of these teams are schizophrenic in their results. United are a bad team that occasionally puts together a few good minutes of play. Chelsea are a decent team that occationally put together a few terrible minutes of play. Calling it even.

West Ham United
DWWLL
1-3
Manchester City
WDLW
Manchester City 2-0 West Ham United 19 Feb 2020
West Ham United 0-5 Manchester City 10 Aug 2019
Manchester City 1-0 West Ham United 27 Feb 2019
West Ham United 0-4 Manchester City 24 Nov 2018
West Ham United 1-4 Manchester City 29 Apr 2018

This is the game that will let us know if Citeh are contenders. An “away” win whatever that means against a team that is not terrible. Anything less than a win spells “not this year”.

Arsenal
LWLWW
2-1
Leicester City
LLWWW
Arsenal 1-1 Leicester City 07 Jul 2020
Leicester City 2-0 Arsenal 09 Nov 2019
Leicester City 3-0 Arsenal 28 Apr 2019
Arsenal 3-1 Leicester City 22 Oct 2018
Leicester City 3-1 Arsenal 09 May 2018

Arsenal really are better with Arteta at the helm. Time to see if a Leicester side with two loses on the trot are able to turn it on against the big boys. Nope.

Southampton
DWWLL
1-1
Everton
DWWWW
Everton 1-1 Southampton 09 Jul 2020
Southampton 1-2 Everton 09 Nov 2019
Southampton 2-1 Everton 19 Jan 2019
Everton 2-1 Southampton 18 Aug 2018
Everton 1-1 Southampton 05 May 2018

Tough match to call with Everton off to an unbeaten start (that included some refereeing skullduggery against Liverpool) versus a Southampton team that has the mercurial Danny Ings up-front. A draw seems fair with Richarlison out… though Jordan should be out for the game as well.

Wolverhampton
WWLLW
3-1
Newcastle

Wolverhampton 1-1 Newcastle 11 Jan 2020
Newcastle 1-1 Wolverhampton 27 Oct 2019
Wolverhampton 1-1 Newcastle 11 Feb 2019
Newcastle 1-2 Wolverhampton 09 Dec 2018

Another team all over the place. Wolves will win comfortably because I think Newcastle are ready to start calling it a day. Shelvey plays a good long ball though.

Brighton and Hove Albion

2-0
West Bromwich Albion
DLDLL
West Bromwich Albion 2-0 Brighton and Hove Albion 13 Jan 2018

I’m just picking against West Bromwich every week.

Burnley
DLLL
1-2
Tottenham Hotspur
DWDWL
Burnley 1-1 Tottenham Hotspur 07 Mar 2020
Tottenham Hotspur 5-0 Burnley 07 Dec 2019
Burnley 2-1 Tottenham Hotspur 23 Feb 2019
Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 Burnley 15 Dec 2018
Burnley 0-3 Tottenham Hotspur 23 Dec 2017

Another game that is hard to predict. Will Spuds score six or seven this week?

That’s it . I recommend that you ignore all my predictions, they have been terrible thus far.
