Arsenal defeated Stoke 3 - 0 in the match played at the Emirates. Alexis Sanchez provided the cross that led to Arsenal's first goal in the 5th minute.  After a corner was half-cleared by Stoke, Sanchez sent the ball back into the box for Koscielny to head home unmarked.

Premier League Prediction - Week 13


     West Brom v Arsenal [Saturday]

West Brom have been poor of late, they have to step up against Arsenal.

West Brom manager said he knows the weakness of Arsenal, he thinks he knows how to beat Arsenal. Their supporters will be looking forward to that.

Premier League Predictions - Week 12

  Chelsea v West Brom [Saturday]

Chelsea have been outstanding so far this season. People now expect them to win every game.

They host West Brom at the Bridge, many Chelsea fans will be expecting another win.

West Brom were robbed last season when they visited Stamford Bridge. I believe they haven't forgotten what happened. They were denied a win when the ref awarded Chelsea a controversial penalty in the dying minutes, then ended up going home with a point.

This Chelsea team is much better than that of last season. West Brom will find it tough to even get a point in this game.

Prediction: 2-0

Everton v West Ham [Saturday]

Everton's form this season has been inconsistent.  They will have to step up to beat West Ham though.

West Ham have been flying this season, they will go into this game with no fear.

This should be an interesting game, very hard to call.

Prediction: 2-1

Leicester v Sunderland [Saturday]

Leicester have been woeful since they beat United 5-3, they have been losing games.

Maybe they have been found out and i think after the win against United people now take them seriously. They have to find a way to stop the poor run of form.

Sunderland are gaining confidence gradually, they are not a terrible side they just need belief.

Both teams are struggling with confidence, a win will do either team a lot of good.

Prediction: 1-1

Man City v Swansea [Saturday]

City lost to West Ham in their last game, this is the time to step up, they have been playing below par this season.  They have a game against Bayern coming up, too. They are really under pressure.

This is a game City have to win. Swansea have been good this season, i'm sure after beating Arsenal they will be hoping they can get a decent result in this game.

This should be an interesting game. Swansea will give them a game.

Prediction: 2-1

Newcastle v QPR [Saturday]

Newcastle are really playing well, they can't stop winning at the moment. Some weeks ago it was all doom and gloom.

QPR looks to be gaining confidence each game, they haven't been all that poor of late, there are encouraging signs. They look to be improving.

I expect Newcastle to win here, not that QPR won't pose much threat, i just see Newcastle winning this.

Prediction: 2-1

Stoke v Burnley [Saturday]

Stoke are too inconsistent this season, they have been poor at home so far. They need to start winning at home again.

Burnley will be hoping to get a point in this game, they don't look like they can score much, so they will be hoping they can score a goal and maybe defend it. I don't think they will leave with a point though.

Stoke, to me, will be too powerful for Burnley to handle.

Prediction: 2-0

Arsenal v Man United [Saturday]

Wenger's reluctance to buy a defender and defensive midfielder during the transfer window is haunting him and his side so far this season. If he had done that they would be coping well with all the injuries and they won't be conceding or losing games after taking the lead.

Both teams are struggling at the back, i think United have more defensive problems than Arsenal.

I think Arsenal will cope better than United in this game, many players are injured for United, this should just help Arsenal win the game.

I'm expecting an exciting game, there will be many good forwards in this game, i hope we will see more goals.

Prediction : 2-1

Crystal Palace v Liverpool [Sunday]

Sturridge's new injury setback will really affect Liverpool this season.  They were hoping that he would be fit for their season to pick up but that didn't happen.

Palace won't care whether Sturridge is fit or not, they will be hoping they can win this game.  I really think Liverpool will struggle in this game, they seem to have lost hope in the players they have, especially their forwards.

Prediction: 1-1

Hull v Tottenham [Sunday]

Hull will want to capitalise on Spurs' poor form and low morale.  They have to because they are not really playing well at the moment. A win against Spurs at home will give them a boost.

Spurs are so poor at the moment, they look confused at times in games. They are not playing as a team, their manager has to step up, his players and team lacks organisation.

Prediction :2-1

Aston v Southampton [Monday]

Aston Villa just don't know what to do at the moment. They look lost. And they are playing against a very good team. This will be a tough game for them for sure.

Southampton have been flying so far this season,  they can't stop winning at the moment. This should be another routine win for them, Villa won't pose too much threat to them.

Prediction: 1-2

Premier League Predictions - Week 11


 Liverpool v Chelsea [Saturday]

No matter what Brendan Rodgers says about his team selection against Real Madrid in the champions league, it won't disguise the fact that he threw in the towel even before a ball was kicked.

Saturday, 1 November 2014

Premier League Predictions - Week 10

Newcastle v Liverpool [Saturday]

 Newcastle have suddenly turned the corner, they are now looking like the team to beat. They are winning games again. I bet you won't see any banners or find any fan criticizing the manager in this game. I'm happy for the manager, the fans have been unfair to him for some time.

Premier League Predictions - Week 8

   Man City v Tottenham [Saturday]

Man City has a lot of good players in their squad in case of fatigue or tiredness.. Some players will be tired after the international games for their countries. I don't expect this to affect City because of the quality of players they have in their team. I expect Spurs to suffer instead.

Premier League Predictions - Week 7

Leicester v Burnley [Saturday]

After thrashing Man U, many thought Leicester would beat Palace last weekend but they lost.

They are at home to Burnley, one of the worst teams in the league, if they don't win this. their fans will be disappointed.

Premier League Predictions - Week 6

  Liverpool v Everton  (Saturday)

This should be a fantastic game, a Merseyside derby. I believe there will be a lot of goals too.

Liverpool have been poor of late, and Everton have been poor too. They both have problems defensively. They have conceded many sloppy goals in recent games. I don't see that stopping in this game, i see many goals in this game.

Saturday, 20 September 2014

Premier League Predictions - Week 5

 QPR v Stoke (Saturday)

QPR were poor against Man U in their last game. They have lost 4-0 twice already this season. But Redknapp is not under pressure i wonder why. But Alan Pardew is under serious pressure.

Friday, 12 September 2014

Premier League Predictions - Week 4

   Arsenal v Man City (Saturday)

 This match will be different from what we saw during the community shield Arsenal won convincingly.

I still see Arsenal winning this though. Not by three goals, i must add.

Friday, 29 August 2014

Premier League Predictions - Week 3

Burnley v Man United (Saturday)

Burnley, to me, are the weakest team in the league. They will have to be at their very best to get something out of this game.
Man United are a team low on confidence at the moment. They should be signing defenders and a defensive midfielder, not a forward.
Di Maria is a great player, but they can still lose this game with him in the team, their defence is terrible at the moment. I won't be surprised if they don't win this game.

Premier League Predictions - Week 2

Aston Villa v Newcastle  (Saturday)

Aston Villa got a very good result against Stoke last weekend.  They will be hoping to beat Newcastle too
Newcastle were decent against City, but City just had too much firepower. Newcastle impressed, to be honest, they just didn't take their chances. Against Villa they will be hoping for a better result.

Premier League Predictions - Week 1

Premier League Logo

Man United v Swansea (Saturday)

Louis van Gaal will make sure Man United does not  have a disastrous time in the premier league this season as they did under Moyes last season.  He is clearly better than Moyes, i expect them to do extremely well this season, i don't see them winning the league though, they can finish in the top four.

Premier League Predictions - Week 38

Cardiff v Chelsea [Sunday]

Cardiff were always going to be relegated because they have been poof for too long. Sacking Mackay and appointing Solskjaer was a wrong move. He has made things worse to be frank.

Saturday, 3 May 2014

Premier League Predictions - Week 37


West Ham v Tottenham [Saturday]

Two managers under pressure, Allardyce from his fans and Sherwood, from his bosses.

West Ham have been poor in recent weeks, this is a London derby, a win will make the fans happy and a loss will make them even more angry.

Premier League Predictions - Week 36


Southampton v Everton [Saturday]

This is going to be an exciting game, two attacking teams, there should be goals in this.

Everton have to win in order to keep their top four hopes alive, a draw or a loss will be a huge disappointment.

Saturday, 12 April 2014

Premier League Predictions - Week 34


Crystal Palace v Aston Villa [Saturday]

Palace don't have to worry about relegation anymore, they have been outstanding of late. Credit to Tony Pulis.

They are at home against Aston Villa a team that is struggling for form. They will be disappointed if they don't win this game.

Saturday, 5 April 2014

Premier League Predictions - Week 33


Man City v Southampton [Saturday]

 City will win the league if they win their remaining games, they have to go for it.

Their draw against Arsenal wasn't that bad, they got a good point, but they have to beat the saints.

Southampton have been playing well for some time now, they will have to be very good against City if they want to take something from the game.

Saturday, 29 March 2014

Premier League Predictions - Week 32

Man United v Aston Villa [Saturday]

David Moyes said even Sir Alex would struggle this season if he was still managing United, that's so wrong and naïve of him to say.
Man U wouldn't been playing poorly if they had Fergie.

Friday, 21 March 2014

Premier League Predictions - Week 31

Chelsea v Arsenal [Saturday]

This is a massive, massive game for both clubs, both are contending for the league title, Chelsea can't afford to lose, neither can Arsenal.

This is going to be a tight game, both might want to settle for a draw, because a loss would be devastating for the team that loses.
