Last week this is how we got on with our Premier League picks:
Predictions (Actual result)
Bournemouth 2-2 Tottenham (0-0)
Arsenal 4-0 Middlesbrough (0-0)
Burnley 1-2 Everton (2-1)
Hull 0-2 Stoke (0-2)
Leicester 2-1 Crystal Palace (3-1)
Swansea 1-0 Watford (0-0)
West Ham 2-1 Sunderland (1-0)
Liverpool 2-0 West Brom (2-1)
Man City 2-1 Southampton (1-1)
Chelsea 1-1 Man United (4-0)
Sunderland 0-3 Arsenal
Arsene Wenger’s side are joint top of the table and haven’t lost in 13 games in all competitions while David Moyes is yet to win since taking over on Wearside and the club sit bottom of the Premier League with just two points.
The Black Cats have beaten the Gunners once in the league since 2000 and it seems very unlikely they will make that record look any better this weekend.
Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez will be far too much for Sunderland to handle.
Man United 4-0 Burnley
Jose Mourinho’s Man United will be confident after knocking rivals Manchester City out of the EFL Cup on Wednesday and I think they will run rampant at Old Trafford tomorrow.
There were signs against City that the Red Devils are close to finding form and I think the clash against Burnley tomorrow could be the turning point.
I expect Paul Pogba to run the show with Marcus Rashford and Zlatan Ibrahimovic getting on the scoresheet.
“Man City are on a dismal run, in fact Pep Guardiola has never experienced this”
West Brom v Man City
Middlesbrough 2-1 Bournemouth
Both Middlesbrough and Bournemouth go into the game on the back of impressive 0-0s against Arsenal and Tottenham respectively, so confidence will be high.
But Boro are still to win at home this season, while Bournemouth are without a league victory away.
Aitor Karanka’s side know they need to start winning at the Riverside and Alvaro Negredo needs to start scoring if they are to have any chance of staying up – and that could well just happen against Bournemouth.
Tottenham 2-0 Leicester
Leicester may have improved last time out against Crystal Palace, but last season’s champions simply aren’t good enough to beat Tottenham, who still haven’t lost in the league.
Spurs’ last home Premier League game saw them outclass Man City and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see them do the same to Claudio Ranieri’s side.
The Foxes haven’t won away from home in the Premier League and Jamie Vardy hasn’t scored in the league since September 10.
White Hart Lane won’t be the place to change any of that.
Watford 1-0 Hull
Hull ended a run of four defeats on the bounce with a midweek EFL Cup triumph at Bristol City.
Meanwhile Watford made it two clean sheets in a row in their 1-0 win over Middlesbrough last week.
And although they’ve recently struggled in front of goal, the Hornets should have just about enough to secure all three points at Vicarage Road.
West Brom 1-1 Man City
City are on a dismal run, in fact Pep Guardiola has never experienced this sort of form in his management career.
And travelling to the Hawthorns to take on a resolute West Brom side will not be the sort of game they will enjoy.
Tony Pulis has his side well drilled and I think the likes of Sergio Aguero and Raheem Sterling could struggle to make an impact. I’m going for a score draw.
Crystal Palace 2-2 Liverpool
Liverpool are currently 10 games unbeaten and they probably go into the game at Selhurst park as the favourites.
But the Reds have struggled against Palace in recent seasons and I don’t expect them to have it all their own way tomorrow.
Anfield reject Christian Benteke will be bang up for this one so do don’t be surprised to see him get on the scoresheet.
Everton 2-1 West Ham
Ronald Koeman’s side have suffered a dip in form in recent weeks but I think they will get back to winning ways against West Ham on Sunday.
Romelu Lukaku will prove too hot to handle for the Hammers defence which has shipped 17 goals in just nine Premier League matches this season.
Everton will be keen to stay in touch with the title contenders at the top of the table and should get all three points at Goodison Park.
Southampton 2-3 Chelsea
Arguably the best game of the weekend comes at St Mary’s.
Southampton continued their fine start to the season with an EFL Cup win over Sunderland while Chelsea, who battered Manchester United 4-0 last weekend, dropped out of the same competition to West Ham.
But Antonio Conte made a host of changes for the game at the London Stadium and I expect his side to pip the Saints in what should be an entertaining match.
Stoke 1-0 Swansea
Stoke made a torrid start to the campaign but are now unbeaten in four games, winning their last two against Sunderland and Hull without conceding.
Swansea are still looking for a victory under new manager Bob Bradley but did earn a point against Watford last time out.
Mark Hughes’ side will pick up another three points and continue their rise up the Premier League table with Xherdan Shaqiri starring once more.
