The Bulldog had a below par score in his mid-week predictions, but he’s bouncing back and means business this weekend and expects there to be plenty of goals!
Right, this week it’s going to be goals galore in the Premier League and by the end of the weekend, we’re going to see plenty of keepers with net rash!
The early kick-off on Saturday is Spurs against Watford and after their late come back during the week Spurs will still think they have a chance at the title, so will be well up for it. Tottenham will definitely win, but the only question will be, by how much?
Man City will be too good for my old team, Hull. They dominated possession against Chelsea, but just couldn’t break them down and I’m afraid to say Hull fans, that I can see them getting battered. Saying that, I don’t think Hull will go there expecting to get a result either, but at City, I can only see one outcome.
Middlesbrough and Burnley play each other tomorrow – two teams down at the bottom of the table. For me, ‘Boro and Sunderland are definitely down. I think Burnley have enough to get out of a relegation scrap and looking at tomorrow’s game they’re the better team who I can see them grinding out a result away from home.
Stoke v Liverpool will be a good game and I am telling you now, there will be plenty more goals contributing to the outbreak of Net Rash in this one! Liverpool are very attacking but can’t defend well, so there will be plenty of opportunities for Stoke to get a couple as well. There might be a question mark around who plays up top for Liverpool, after Klopp confirmed that Mane is out for the season, but even then, I think they’ll still have too much for Stoke.
We’ll see another good game at The Hawthorns, where Southampton are the visitors. Both teams have had decent seasons and they’re two similarly matched sides. All West Brom need to do is nick another 6-9 points and they’ll plod along until the end of the season – I think they’ll get three of those points this weekend.
West Ham will be well up for it and I can’t see Swansea coming there beating them. If West Ham were the visitors, then things could be a little bit different, but the Hammers know this is a ‘must win’, to avoid any sort of relegation talk. The fans, the players and the manager will all be up for it and I can’t see anything other than a win for the Irons.
If Chelsea win their next two games, it’s game over. Done. They’ve got Man United away after Bournemouth tomorrow and if they get 4-6 points in their next two fixtures they will absolutely cruise to the league title. Bournemouth got a result at Anfield during the week so they’ll come into the game with confidence, but that wont be enough to get a result against the Blues.
Sunderland v Manchester United is the early kick-off on Sunday and it’s going to be goals galore in this one. United will walk it and I think this weekend we’ll see the most goals scored in the Premier League this season.
Leicester playing Everton at Goodison will be a very, very good game and the tight pitch won’t suit The Foxes. Leicester love a nice, open pitch where Vardy can stretch the opposition defence and they’re not going to get that on Sunday. It’s going to be a great game and I’m going for a 2-1 Everton win.
Monday night will be another really good game: Palace v Arsenal. This is a huge game for Palace who really need a win and Arsenal don’t respond well to aggro which this Palace team have plenty of. Premier League games at Selhurst have a great atmosphere, it’s another tight pitch and Allardyce will have his team at it. I like this Palace team and think they’re in a false league position now that Big Sam has got them playing his way. We’ll see goals again in this one and I think the eagles will nick it by a goal.
Best of luck
