Premier League predictions: Chelsea to edge out Arsenal, United to thump Toffees

Petr Cech At Stamford Bridge

Liverpool to scrape a win, Manchester United to see off Everton and Chelsea to get one over on Arsenal.

Here are our predictions for the next round of Premier League games.

Hull City v Crystal Palace

Hull will be determined to react to defeat against Manchester City last weekend but Palace will be confident after an important win against Leicester City. This is one of the most difficult games to call.


Leicester City v Burnley

Burnley were well beaten by West Brom last weekend and it’s difficult to see them taking anything from this game. The Foxes showed how good they can be in the home win against Manchester United.


Liverpool v West Brom

This will be a really difficult game for Liverpool after a draw against Everton and defeat to FC Basel. It’s important for their confidence and league position that they get a win, which won’t be easy.


Sunderland v Stoke City

Both of these teams had decent results last week with Sunderland drawing against Swansea and Stoke taking a narrow win against Newcastle. There’s not much to choose between the teams in terms of stats but Sunderland are always difficult to beat away.


Swansea City v Newcastle United

This is a massive game for Alan Pardew and Newcastle United. There is real pressure over the boss as his team look for their first win and to get out of the bottom three. However, it’s difficult to see past a home win.


Aston Villa v Manchester City

Villa are difficult to beat at home and they’ll be determined to react after being thumped by Chelsea last weekend. City have Premier League form but were left frustrated in the Champions League during mid-week.


Manchester United v Everton

On paper, this is a result that could trip Manchester United up. However, Everton have had very little recovery and preparation time after travelling to Russia in the Europa League. Can’t see past a home win.


Chelsea v Arsenal

Both sides have form, confidence and momentum going into this game. Chelsea will likely set out to stifle the pace and midfield play of this Arsenal team as they wear down their opponents over 90 minutes.


Tottenham Hotspur v Southampton

The Saints are one of the Premier League pace setters and well placed to take advantage of the dip in Spurs’ form, which is becoming synonymous with their post-Europa League performances.


West Ham United v QPR

West Ham battled well against Manchester United last weekend as they backed up a win against Liverpool with a decent performance. Only Everton have a worse defence than QPR in the Premier League this season.
