West Ham United vs Tottenham Hotspur (23/09/2017)
Spurs go into this game with solid away form, while West Ham have yet to drop points at home, to be fair, they only have played one game at the London Stadium. In their short history, they have only won back to back games once in the league at London Stadium, and they would like to do that for a second time. Their best record historically in the EPL is versus Spurs. Spurs on the other hand would like to win their 3rd away game in a row, at the start of the season, for the first time in their history. It has never happened in the EPL before. However, with Kane being in solid form in London Derbies and having scored 5 in his last 5 against West Ham, expect a Spurs win.
Everton vs Bournemouth (23/09/2017)
Now that Everton is done with all the heavy hitters (United Away, Spurs Home, Chelsea Away, City Away), for now, they can finally focus on getting back to track after their midweek win in the League Cup. In the last 4 games between the 2 teams, there have been an average of 5 goals a game so it should be a high scoring game, even though Everton are struggling to score. Everton have not lost 4 games in a row since January 2015 and would like to make sure that stays that way. Expect an Everton win, it could be cagey but the toffees need this win to get to their goals for the season.
Southampton vs Manchester United (23/09/2017)
The Red Devils are in crazy form, the only difference at the top of the league right now is that both Man Utd and Man City are separated by only alphabet. The free scoring reds are looking to score and fly through the Saints. What has worked for them so far has been their ability to physically break down their opponents. This season, they have scored 9 goals in the last 10 minutes of a game, with Anthony Martial netting 3 goals and getting an assist off the bench. United have 8 different goal scorers, more than any other side in the EPL while Lukaku would like to equal or break Luis Saha’s Manchester United record of 6 goals in 6 EPL appearances. Expect a comfortable win for the Red Devils, even though Southampton are in decent form considering they have won 2, drawn 2 and lost just 1. Going for an away win.
Stoke City vs Chelsea (23/09/2017)
Morata is on fire in the EPL, he’s scored goals, picked up assists and done a fantastic job, however, can he do it on a cold night in Stoke? The question that is always asked. After defeating Arsenal and holding the high flying Manchester United to a draw, Stoke will look to pick up more points from a top side by drawing/defeating Chelsea. Stoke have lost to Newcastle and Bristol City in their last 2 games. Chelsea are looking to keep up pace with the 2 Manchester clubs after dropping points against Arsenal last weekend. Should be a tasty game to watch, going for an away win. 3 points for Chelsea.
Manchester City vs Crystal Palace (23/09/2017)
This game is not even worth watching. After scoring 11 goals in their last 2 games, and considering Crystal Palace are comfortably bottom of the league, City are most likely going to demolish them. The strike partnership of Aguero and Gabriel Jesus with Kevin De Bruyne in a supporting role, City are on fire. Currently joint top of the league, they know that Manchester United play Crystal Palace next and both teams need to batter Palace in order to try and stay ahead in the hunt for the EPL trophy. Easiest prediction all weekend, Manchester City win incoming.
Leicester City vs Liverpool (23/09/2017)
Liverpool are struggling, without Mane who is still suspended, they don’t look like they have that omph factor. Coutinho coming back into their line up has done nothing to improve them. Vardy has 5 goals in 3 games against Liverpool, including 2 braces at the King Power Stadium. Liverpool would like to pick up 3 points here after having dropped points this season against Burnley, Manchester City and Watford. If they would like to have even a small chance of winning the league, this is a MUST WIN GAME. I still think that isn’t enough, I am predicting a draw.
Arsenal vs West Brom (25/09/2017)
If there is any club more inconsistent than Liverpool, it is Arsenal. After putting in their best show all season versus Chelsea, they were lucky to beat Doncaster in the League Cup. Yes, DONCASTER. I had to look up which league they were in, the third tier of English football. Granted, they made a lot of changes to their line up but they still had Alexis Sanchez starting that game. West Brom have 8 points already this season, 1 more than Arsenal and would like to get back to back wins against Arsenal. Should be an interesting tie as Arsenal could rest a few players as they have a Europa League tie coming up. Depending on which Arsenal side shows up, they could get 3 points here or go home empty handed, therefore I personally think an Arsenal win here is very possible.
