Premier League predictions - Liverpool and City to share the spoils

Giant Anfield Flag

Manchester City are tipped to take points from Liverpool - while Chelsea, Everton and Southampton are backed to win.

Here they are...

Crystal Palace v Aston Villa: 1-1

Palace and Villa seem to be two teams who could play an even match this weekend.

A 1-1 draw seems a safe bet - but if I was asked to choose a winner I would go with Palace. They seem so up for it at the moment under Tony Pulis and I would not it put it past them to win this game.

Fulham v Norwich: 2-2

A relegation six-pointer? Maybe, and the truth is a win for Fulham sees Norwich in deep trouble.

I can’t see that happening. Norwich have enough about them to hold off The Cottagers for at least a draw in London.

Southampton v Cardiff: 3-1

The writing is on the wall for Cardiff City - whether they care to admit it or not that is certainly the case.

The Saints may have little to play for - but being ruthless is built into their game and a comfortable win should be in their sights.

Stoke v Newcastle: 2-0

At this moment in time Stoke seem to just want it more than the Toon Army.

Newcastle look languid and lacklustre and this should be a comfortable game for The Potters.

Sunderland v Everton: 0-2

Do not forget that Sunderland beat Everton at Goodison Park earlier this season - and we are sure Roberto Martinez will not forget.

Everton are now chasing fourth place in the Premier League - and will not want to let it slip at The Stadium of Light.

West Brom v Tottenham: 1-1

So Spurs smashed Sunderland on Monday, a game I very much incorrectly predicted they would lose, but this week I do think they will slip away to West Brom.

Liverpool v Man City: 2-2

The big one and perhaps the title-decider is likely to always end up leaving things up in the air.

That is what I believe anyway. Expect both teams to come out firing and when the dust has settled both to be taking a point away from the game.

Music to the ears of Chelsea fans…

Swansea v Chelsea: 1-2

…who should also be celebrating a win in the Premier League this weekend.

Chelsea are on a high after Champions League glory this week - and should carry that form into the weekend.
