Liverpool v Manchester United ... Arsenal v Tottenham Hotspur .... we have some big fixtures this weekend. We try predict the final score for each PL fixture this weekend.
Here they are…
Manchester City v Hull City: 3-1
After their crushing defeat to Cardiff City last week expect things to go back to normal against The Tigers at The Etihad.
Indicative of progress, perhaps not - but a win nonetheless, at a crucial time.
Cardiff City v Everton: 1-2
Everton have not yet win in 90 minutes for Roberto Martinez, while Cardiff are riding the crest of a Manchester City victory wave.
Everton could catch them cold this weekend and finally earn three points their performances in the Premier League have so far deserved.
Newcastle United v Fulham: 1-1
The Toon are having a torrid time, and despite the apparent return of Yohan Cabaye, and possible introduction of Loic Remy, I cannot see this disjointed bunch winning a game just yet.
Norwich City v Southampton: 2-2
It is always difficult not to back The Canaries at Carrow Road, but given how impressive The Saints have been so far this season they will certainly feel confident of getting the result in Norfolk.
I don’t share their confidence, and feel a score-draw is far more likely.
West Ham United v Stoke City: 1-0
Not impressed with Stoke City so far this season, I never am. But I guess that depends on what style of football you like.
The Hammers are likely to come out on top on this occasion.
Crystal Palace v Sunderland: 1-1
Could Palace pick up their first points of the season? I don’t see why not.
They were unlucky against Spurs, and even more unlucky against Stoke. Now the club is getting used to what being a Premier League team means they should be able to hold off Sunderland.
Liverpool v Manchester United: 1-2
David Moyes has a poor record at Anfield as manager of Everton, but this is a chance to start afresh with a new team.
Expect Liverpool to come out of the traps fast - but Manchester United to fight back and give Moyes a very satisfying victory.
West Bromwich Albion v Swansea City: 0-0
I don’t know why, but I am predicting this to be a stalemate. But I certainly hope I am proven wrong.
Arsenal v Tottenham Hotspur: 2-2
Spurs may have been buy, buy, buying but Arsenal have looked good ever since losing to a rampant Aston Villa on opening day.
I don’t feel this Spurs outfit will be able to earn victory at The Emirates just yet, but I cannot see them losing either.
Hopefully, a pulsating draw will ensue.
What are your predictions ahead of the weekend fixtures?
