Chelsea vs Arsenal – 2-2
I expect the London derby to end in a draw. Although beating Maccabi Tel Aviv was not difficult, I think it will have given them a psychological boost. However, I still think not all of Chelsea’s problems are psychological and I think Arsenal will not have difficulty in putting two goals past them.
Aston Villa vs West Brom – 1-1
If Villa are not able to beat Leicester when they are two goals up with 30 minutes to go, I don’t think they will get more than a point here. Things are bound to improve soon, though.
Bournemouth vs Sunderland – 2-3
This will be a very hard fought victory for Sunderland, and a humongous psychological boost for a side that has been struggling in the past weeks.
Newcastle vs Watford – 2-1
I expect Newcastle to edge it here. Watford haven’t been scoring enough goals so far this season and if that doesn’t change they might have trouble staying up in the Premier League.
Stoke vs Leicester – 1-1
Stoke are a very very good side and are going to be a hard test for Claudio Ranieri’s Leicester who have shown some amazing spirit so far this season – coming from behind to beat Aston Villa, for example. Although Stoke have been in very good form this season, they have a lot of quality in their squad.
Swansea vs Everton – 1-2
Both of these are teams are good sides but Swansea’s last game was a defeat to Watford, while in Everton’s last game they beat Chelsea.
Manchester City vs West Ham – 2-0
I’m going for another win and a clean sheet for City, even though they were defeated in midweek by Juventus.
Tottenham vs Crystal Palace – 1-2
Even Man City had trouble beating Palace, and the Eagles where also able to beat Chelsea – they are a very good side. I think they definitely should be recognised as an established Premier League side, like Swansea.
Liverpool vs Norwich – 2-0
This is a good opportunity for Liverpool to return to winning ways. Norwich will be a hard test, though.
Southampton vs Manchester United – 2-1
I have a funny feeling United will be at the wrong end of an unexpected result again this season (losing to Swansea and PSV, drawing with Newcastle).
