Matchday 8 – November 6th

Once again I go out on a limb and make my predictions. I might change my mind on some of these prior to match time.

Your Comments

Your quotable: Another week another set of guesses.

Man Pretty v Liverpool is the pick of the games and I think the home side will squeak past the champions.

Spuds should cruise past Albion and would be my banker for this week…. can’t really see another obvious win but if I had to bet then Arsenal and Chelski would get the nod.

Leicester and wolves could provide a good game and I think this may be decided by a very late goal.

Everton have gone off the boil and Man U have never done anything better than a simmer… expect a dull draw!

West Ham should win the London derby against Fulham… I really cannot add them to my banker section as I’m not overly convinced.

Your quotable: Now I’m off for a hole in the ground to hide in, for more reasons you could shake a stick at! GGMU! 🙁

Southampton 0-0 Newcastle 27 Oct 2018

I actually picked this one to be 3-1 because the Saints are on a run but then I remembered that Danny Ings was hurt so I knocked a goal off.

Write something

Two dour teams in a dour game because “That’s the Burnley way!”. That’s an Athletico Mince podcast reference, in case you’re wondering. I don’t see anything but a draw going on here. I tossed a coin 3 times to see if it would be 0-0,1-1, or a moderately exciting 2-2.

Crystal Palace

2-1
Leeds United

Not a lot of history to go on. I expect Leeds to score but less than Palace because they have to come off the boi sooner or later.

Everton

1-0
Manchester United

Everton 0-2 Manchester United 01 Jan 2018

Everton won’t continue their top of the table form but Manchester United are awful

West Ham United
LDDWW
2-0
Fulham
WLDLL
West Ham United 3-1 Fulham 22 Feb 2019
Fulham 0-2 West Ham United 15 Dec 2018

It’s going to be a tough year for Fulham. Losing to West Ham will show them exactly how tough it will be.

Chelsea
WDDWD
2-0
Sheffield United
LLDLL
Sheffield United 3-0 Chelsea 11 Jul 2020
Chelsea 2-2 Sheffield United 31 Aug 2019

Don’t expect Fat Frank’s team to struggle much with the team from up North. What has happened to Sheffield?

Arsenal

3-2
Aston Villa

Aston Villa 1-0 Arsenal 21 Jul 2020

Expect some thrilling goals but Arsenal will just nick it.

Leicester City

2-1
Wolverhampton

Wolverhampton 0-0 Leicester City 14 Feb 2020
Leicester City 0-0 Wolverhampton 11 Aug 2019
Wolverhampton 4-3 Leicester City 19 Jan 2019
Leicester City 2-0 Wolverhampton 18 Aug 2018

Anything could happen but I think Leicester are the stronger team.

West Bromwich Albion

0-2
Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham Hotspur 1-1 West Bromwich Albion 25 Nov 2017
Tottenham Hotspur 4-0 West Bromwich Albion 14 Jan 2017
West Bromwich Albion 1-1 Tottenham Hotspur 15 Oct 2016

I really wanted West Brom to do well this year but I think I’m going to have to settle for them being inconsistent. I suspect they will waver between bad and really bad until the end.

Manchester City
WDWDL
3-2
Liverpool
WWDLW
Manchester City 4-0 Liverpool 02 Jul 2020

Liverpool 4-3 Manchester City 14 Jan 2018

This will probably be a draw. I should definitely pick a draw.
