Premier League predictions - Liverpool and Arsenal to win; Hull City to throw spanner in works?

Liverpool and Arsenal are backed to win comfortably against Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur. While Hull City are tipped to get something from the visit of Manchester City.

Hull City v Manchester City: 2-2

Manchester City look out of sorts at the back at the moment - while Hull City have a very potent looking attack since January.

With that in mind, why couldn’t Hull give them a run for their money at The KC Stadium?

Everton v Cardiff City: 3-1

Sorry Bluebird fans - I just cannot see you guys staying up. The slip should continue at Goodison Park this week and Everton would be disappointed not to come away victorious from this game.

Fulham v Newcastle United: 1-0

A glimmer of hope for Fulham?

Newcastle United have had to deal with the Alan Pardew debacle recently and that distraction might just give Felix Magath a chance at snatching a result.

Southampton v Norwich City: 2-1

Norwich City are still teetering on the edge of a potential relegation battle - while Mauricio Pochettino is still hoping to take his team higher up the table.

A home win should be the end result.

Stoke City v West Ham United: 1-1

Two evenly matched teams, both floating around in mediocrity until the end of the season now.

Don’t expect fireworks is all I am saying.

Sunderland v Crystal Palace: 2-2

Think this should be an entertaining game. Both new managers have done great jobs since taking over at the club - but they are still far from taking their respective teams clear of the relegation zone.

I can see a score draw in the North East.

Swansea City v West Brom: 2-0

Sorry, but Pepe Mel just is not the man to save West Brom this season.

If Steve Clarke had stayed I imagine they would be in a similar position to West Ham or Stoke by now - but Mel looks a dead man walking.

After a defeat in Wales The Baggies might have to make one last roll of the dice - or pay the ultimate fine.

Aston Villa v Chelsea: 1-3

No dramas surely? Chelsea should win comfortably at Villa Park.

If Benteke is firing than who knows - but thus should be a simple procedure for Jose Mourinho and co.

Manchester United v Liverpool: 1-4

A very bold prediction here - but Liverpool look sumptuous at the moment.

The way they dismantled Arsenal, Tottenham, and Southampton - it is hard to see United standing a chance, even at Old Trafford.

And as an Everton fan - this prediction pains me to make.

Tottenham v Arsenal: 1-3

I almost went with more goals for this game as well. What exactly Tim Sherwood has brought that Andre Villas-Boas wouldn’t have eventually done for the club this season I don’t know - but he seems to have lost the plot.

It backfired against Benfica yesterday - and expect no mercy from their local rivals.
