Premier League predictions - Liverpool to cruise; Arsenal and Chelsea to draw

Chelsea inc Willian

Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester United and Tottenham to draw while Liverpool and Manchester City go marching on!

Here they are...

Chelsea v Arsenal: 1-1

It is Arsene Wenger’s 1,000th game in charge of Arsenal tomorrow afternoon and it could not be a more important fixture.

The Gunners are still in the title hunt - while The Blues were dealt a blow by losing at Aston Villa a week ago.

Hard to see Arsenal getting a win - but on such a memorable day it is is also hard to see them losing, so a score draw seems a fair bet.

Cardiff v Liverpool: 1-3

Rampant Liverpool take on Cardiff City - who are slipping toward a place in second tier football once again.

I doubt I would find many Cardiff fans optimistic ahead of this fixture - so I won’t apologise for my prediction.

Everton v Swansea: 2-0

The Toffees seem to have a knack for outplaying Swansea and after their recent scrappy form this will be a game in which Roberto Martinez will expect a response.

So a home win seems a sensible bet.

Hull v West Brom: 1-1

A really tough one to call but after their performance last week West Brom will hold out hope of at least picking up a point at the KC Stadium.

Man City v Fulham: 5-0

Sorry Cottagers but I just cannot see this one going any other way.

Fulham may have got a win against Newcastle United last week but City just look ready to rip someone open - and Fulham are the perfect prey.

Newcastle v Crystal Palace: 1-1

The Toon are sort of falling away at the end of this season - and Palace are fighting a relegation battle.

With that in mind Palace are more than capable of getting something from their trip up north.

Norwich v Sunderland: 2-2

Two relegation scrappers go toe-to-toe in the East and it should be an exciting match.

But at the end of the day neither side would be happy with a draw - which is exactly how I see this one panning out.

West Ham v Man United: 1-1

OK so they beat Olympiakos at home 3-0 - well done, but back to domestic football - and given United this season it would not be a surprise to see a lacklustre performance out there this Saturday evening against The Hammers.

Tottenham v Southampton: 2-2

In my opinion these two teams are about even - and that should be reflected in the scoreline in a competitive fixture.

Aston Villa v Stoke: 3-1

After beating Chelsea Villa must be sky-high - and Stoke are in and around them in the league.

If Villa produce a duplicate performance than The Potters have no chance of victory - which is my prediction.
