Premier League Predictions : Week 10

Man United v Tottenham-

United were brought crashing back down to earth at the John Smith’s Stadium last weekend as they were outworked and outfought by a determined Huddersfield team, and it can be attributed to the fact that not only were The Red Devils guilty of making schoolboy errors at the back but they also didn’t seem to have done enough homework on the terriers as well. They now find themselves five points adrift of rampant league leaders Man City and anything other than a win against Tottenham on Saturday will further dent their hopes for a first league title in four seasons.

Spurs on the other hand will come into this game full of confidence after their 4-1 annihilation of Liverpool, and they will definitely not be easy prey for Jose Mourinho’s men and with Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Son Heung Min and Christian Eriksen, they will prove to be a dangerous adversary.

Both managers’ primary strength lies in defensive discipline, industry and rapier like counter attacks but I just have this feeling that United will win this one, as Jose Mourinho will demand a response in front of their home crowd, and he will get it, as he is one of those managers that do not accept any form of failure.

Prediction: 2-1

Arsenal v Swansea-

The Gunners faithful were treated to the dream attacking trio of Alexandre Lacazette, Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Özil at Goodison Park on Sunday and they weren’t disappointed as the three lead the way in a 5-2 demolition of Everton with all three getting on the score sheet. The Gunners had to come from behind though as a horrendous error by Granit Xhaka allowed him to be dispossessed by Idrissa Gueye who moved the ball upfield and it ended up on the feet of Wayne Rooney who curled a sumptuous effort past Peter Cêch. A much improved second half saw the Arsenal wrestle control of the game away from the Merseysiders, but they will need to be much more disciplined and professional if they are to put a Swansea side intent on getting back to winning ways after their 2-1 home defeat to Leicester to the sword on Saturday.

Swansea are an extremely unpredictable side and Arsenal will have to replicate last week’s second half performance from the first whistle to the last of they are to emerge victorious, and given the mood that their three star attackers are in, I just think that Swansea will be in a world of trouble not to forget that they have had a good rest as Arsenal’s reserves got the job done against Norwich in the Carabao Cup.

Prediction: 3-0

Liverpool v Huddersfield-

The Reds were onto a hiding at Wembley on Sunday as they simply couldn’t deal with Spurs’ relentless assault, and that defeat once again exposed the massive cracks in Liverpool’s back line, and Jürgen Klopp will have to address this because failure to do so will see them miss out on a champions league berth this term, but with Man United’s conquerors coming to town on Saturday, Liverpool will have to be wary of The Terriers’ obvious threat given how porous their red guard is.

Huddersfield will come into this game frothing at the mouth, looking to make it two wins out of two against two of the top seven sides in the division, and they will definitely cause Liverpool all sorts of problems but I think the Reds will win this one given that their manager and fans will demand a response to Sunday’s debacle.

Prediction: 2-1

West Brom v Man City-

The Baggies will be playing at The Hawthorns for the first time in a fortnight as they played two consecutive games away from home; at Leicester and Southampton, drawing the former and losing the latter, and they will be looking to get back to winning ways but standing in their way, is a Man City side that just looks invincible.

Pep Guardiola’s team got what has become a routine win over Burnley, and as the season wears on, it’s increasingly becoming evident that City are becoming unstoppable, as teams simply cannot deal with their quickfire passing, easy on the eye football.

Tony Pulis has the tools to stifle Man City no doubt, but that is easier said than done, and another routine win is on the cards for the Etihad Stadium outfit.

Prediction: 0-4

Bournemouth v Chelsea-

The Cherries notched an impressive away win at Stoke, and what made it all the more impressive was the fact that they won at a ground that is notoriously difficult to visit, but they will have to give a better performance than that one if they are to get the better of the champions on Saturday.

Chelsea on the other hand reminded the division as to why they’re the champions with a 4-2 comeback win over the surprise team of the season Watford, but all said and done, there are still some chinks in that Chelsea armor and they will have to be a bit more solid if they are to contain a Bournemouth side that attacks with reckless abandon.

This will definitely be an open game, as both sides love to play expansive football but I will have to go with the champions on this one as they are a tad more solid than Eddie Howe’s men.

Prediction: 1-3

Leicester v Everton-

The Foxes were mightily impressive in their away win at The Liberty stadium which was a mighty improvement on their previous game at home to West Brom where they had to settle for a point and will be looking to get back to winning ways in front of their home fans when they welcome a struggling Everton side to The King Power stadium.

Everton are in an absolute ditch at the moment, a position which was compounded by their abysmal performance in their 5-2 home defeat to Arsenal on Sunday, a result that cost Ronald Koeman his job, and caretaker manager David Unsworth has the unenviable task of steadying the Everton ship before their season gets even worse. He did do a good job in the Carabao Cup in mid week at Stamford Bridge albeit being on the losing end, and it seems that he is having a positive influence on the players which will bode well for the team, which is why I’m backing them to end the horrible run with a point, which will be a decent result.

Prediction: 1-1
