Premier League predictions - Arsenal and United to draw, Tottenham drop points

How does HITC Writer Mathew Nash see the Premier League fixtures ending up this weekend?

Here they are...

Aston Villa v Cardiff: 1-1

Cardiff are flying high after victory against their bitter Wels rivals - and at at Villa Park they might just get another decent result.

Andreas Weimann is out, along with Gabby Agbonlahor and Antonio Luna - however Fabian Delph should return.

But Cardiff will be riding high, and might just get a decent result.

Chelsea v West Brom: 1-0

West Brom have raised their game for the big teams this season, apart from when Liverpool decimated them at Anfield.

At Stamford Bridge however I feel a close game, but The Blues will prevail.

Crystal Palace v Everton: 2-2

Historically Everton are not the best in London, and Palace will be hoping to pull off a shock.

Unfortunately, it does not look likely, as The Toffees should win, and comfortably.

However, predicted bad weather around Selhurst Park could just play into the hands of The Eagles, and even as an Everton fan it pains me to say - but I can see a shock result here, even if it is just a draw.

Liverpool v Fulham: 3-0

The games are not getting any easier for Fulham.

Southampton then Manchester United and now Liverpool away. This should be a no holds barred win for the home side.

Southampton v Hull: 2-0

Hull City come to St Marys with a few injury problems and The Saints are buzzing after seeing Jay Rodriguez and Adam Lallana join Rickie Lambert.

With all that positive energy flying around a pretty energetic team as it is, only one result seems likely.

Norwich City v West Ham: 1-0

People have been getting on the back of Chris Hughton recently, although injury issues and tough opposition have not helped his cause.

I believe he can turn the fortunes on their head with an important home win against goal-shy West Ham.

Tottenham v Newcastle: 1-1

Newcastle pulled off a great result last week against Chelsea, and looked a more settled unit then they have the rest of the season.

Spurs continue to struggle putting the ball in the net - and Newcastle are always dangerous. So I see no reason why The Toon Army cannot come away singing from White Hart Lane.

Sunderland v Man City: 0-4

City are just going to bang in more goals this weekend surely. If Sunderland keep all 11 men on the pitch they might cause some trouble, they have in the past.

But City look rampant at the moment - and that is likely to continue at the Stadium of Light.

Manchester United v Arsenal: 1-1

Easily the hardest game to predict, as in-form Arsenal take on falling champions United at Old Trafford.

The end of a perfect week for The Gunners, I don’t think so. A draw seems likely between these two powerhouses.

Swansea v Stoke: 2-0

The final prediction, and one which I think Swansea need.

The South Wales side lost to their neighbours at the weekend, and need a confidence boosting win after inconsistent form this term.

But Stoke continue to struggle scoring goals, and The Swans will feel confident of beating their rivals.
