JE: “I wish I could actually know which united are going to turn up!”
Someone overheard Ole saying the same thing as he wandered around Manchester looking for Pogba.

JE: “Fulham will beat wba in the match of the weekend. Lol.”
Match of the season!

ME: “Covid is draining my footballing spirit… but I will keep the guesses coming!”
2 Days ago: Manchester United announces they are ready to hold 23,500 fans
1 Day ago: Manchester United’s back Telles tests positive for Covid-19

AA: “I wonder what clubs the F1 drivers support…”
I was surprise to find out that F1 Champion Hamilton supports Arsenal. I thought he was a big enough knob to support Chelsea!

Easy win. Wolves are improving and Palace are worsening. Wouldn’t be surprised if it is more but definitely a clean sheet.

As Bob Mortimer says on Athletico Mince – If you want to score, get the ball off the floor and remember….. shit, piles, roadkill, eggnog…. and that’s the Burnley way!

The Burnley way in this case will be eeking out a result as they start to improve.

Sheffield United
Manchester City
Sheffield United 0-1 Manchester City 21 Jan 2020
Manchester City 2-0 Sheffield United 29 Dec 2019

A tough one for Citeh who are struggling to get things together. I think watching Citeh and Liverpool play allows you to see how much COVID is impacting the game. The organization, the training, the timing, the teamwork isn’t there. Too much space in the game and too much of a practice five-a-side feel.

They will pull out a comfortable win after falling behind early.

West Ham United 0-2 Liverpool 29 Jan 2020
West Ham United 1-1 Liverpool 04 Feb 2019

Every meeting with Jose will have him talking about keeping a clean sheet. Maybe he doesn’t like laundry.

Manchester United
Arsenal 2-0 Manchester United 01 Jan 2020
Manchester United 1-1 Arsenal 30 Sep 2019
Arsenal 2-0 Manchester United 10 Mar 2019
Manchester United 2-2 Arsenal 05 Dec 2018
Manchester United 2-1 Arsenal 29 Apr 2018

Who the hell knows ? Arsenal will jump into a 2-0 lead and think everything is great. Then the comeback as the referee ignores Harry Maguire beating up someone in the box and immediately on the following attack Bruno falls over his own feet and gets a penalty. A quick stunner and it’s 2-2 before Harry Maguire gives a penalty away the one time he doesn’t molest someone from a corner.

Everton 2-2 Newcastle 21 Jan 2020
Newcastle 1-2 Everton 28 Dec 2019
Newcastle 3-2 Everton 09 Mar 2019

Everton are missing two key players through suspension. Newcastle are looking better.

West Bromwich Albion
West Bromwich Albion 0-0 Fulham 14 Jul 2020
Fulham 1-1 West Bromwich Albion 14 Sep 2019

West Brom play out a bore draw in this game of the week!

Leeds United
Leicester City

No prior form results for these two. I tend to think that Bamford used up his goal allotment last week so they will need to find goals elsewhere. and I’m sure they will find enough to get a great and thrilling draw
