Our expert tipster had a fairly good with Week 2’s predictions scoring 6 wins and 1 correct score. Let us see how he does this weekend.
Tottenham Hotspur vs. Liverpool
Two teams that are aiming for a top four finish will clash at White Hart Lane. Liverpool is coming off a disappointing 2-0 loss to Burnley while Spurs registered their first win of the season against Crystal Palace. Both teams have a lot of attacking qualities and I do expect some goals in this game.
Chelsea vs. Burnley
Chelsea is beginning to find their feet under Conte and they won both games of the season with Diego Costa scoring the winner. Burnley come into this game on a high with an impressive 2-0 victory over Liverpool but Chelsea at home should win this game.
Crystal Palace vs. Bournemouth
Palace have spent big in the transfer window with record signing Christian Benteke signing on board. They have so far lost both games by a 1-0 scoreline margin but should be able to get the better of Bournemouth who have yet to register a victory in the premier league.
Everton vs. Stoke City
Everton have started the season under new coach Ronald Koeman well. They are expected to push this season for a top six place. With Lukaku expected to stay, Everton should have the firepower to achieve this target.
Leicester City vs. Swansea City
Last season’s surprised champions have yet to register a win from their opening two games and are at home again. Swansea is coming into this game off a disappointing 2-0 loss at home to Hull City and the champions of last season should be a stern test for The Swans.
Southampton vs. Sunderland
Both teams have no wins from their first two games. The Saints are favourites coming into this one and will be looking to kick start their season.
Watford vs. Arsenal
Arsenal have yet to register a win in the premier league and the fans are frustrated with a lack of continued transfer activity in the window. Could this season be the season where arsenal will miss out on a top four finish under Arsene Wenger?
Hull City vs. Manchester United
Can Hull be the surprise team of the season? Hull have won both of their opening games and are on a high. However, they come up against Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United team this weekend. Zlatan Ibrahimovic has scored three goals in two games and Paul Pogba made an impressive second debut for Manchester United. Manchester United have the better players, are title contenders and should win this game comfortably.
West Bromwich Albion vs. Middlesbrough
Newly promoted Middlesbrough have made a decent start to the season with four points from their opening two games. They take on Tony Pulis’ West Brom in what should be an evenly contested game.
Manchester City vs. West Ham United
Title favourites, Manchester City, have started the season impressively and are adapting the Pep’s philosophy. At this point, this should be prove to be more than enough for an ‘out-of-sorts’ West Ham side this weekend.
