Here they are...
Arsenal v Tottenham: 2-2
The North London derby is the big talking point this weekend and it is hard to remember this fixture being more important for either side in recent memory. Both are going through a difficult stage in their respective seasons and despite Arsenal welcoming back many a player from injury cant see them doing enough to beat Spurs.
Liverpool v Wigan Athletic: 2-1
Personally I think Liverpool have been very unlucky in terms of results this season as their general play has warranted much more. Last week the earned a draw at Stamford Bridge and while Wigan continue to be everyone’s surprise package once again can see Brendan Rodgers getting one over the man who rivalled him for the hot-seat at Anfield.
Manchester City v Aston Villa: 3-1
City were uninspiring once again last weekend but guess what, they won. Isn’t that the sign of great champions? That’s what the cliché says and despite Villa’s improved performance against United they still threw away a perfectly good two-goal advantage and it is hard to see anything other than a City win.
Newcastle United v Swansea City: 2-0
Newcastle are having a mixed season and the form of Papiss Cisse is a real worry. No doubt Yohann Cabaye needs to be utilised further up the pitch however Swansea are fretting over the fitness of Ki Sung-Yeung and he has been one of the finest players in recent weeks.
QPR V Southampton: 1-1
The battle between the basement clubs and the two gaffers who are top of the Premier Leagues sacking odds. Simply put I just cannot see one beating the other so a share of the points at Loftus Road seems likely.
Reading v Everton: 1-2
Can’t explain how difficult this call is for me. As a Reading boy who supports Everton I have had to think very hard about the potential result, going with a 2-1 away win and saying no more on the issue.
West Brom v Chelsea: 2-1
Why not? West Brom look very good at home and Steve Clarke will know a thing or two about the ins and outs of Chelsea FC (maybe?) so The Baggies are plenty capable of causing a shock against the European Champions.
Norwich City v Manchester United: 1-3
Sorry Norwich fans I just cannot see any hope of anything other than victory for United, and a comfortable one at that. Going with the form book though and giving Norwich an early lead only to be cut down by Hernandez and co.
Fulham v Sunderland: 1-0
Not your usual Super Sunday fixture but everyone gets a turn. Sunderland don’t seem right at the moment while Fulham, with Berbatov and Ruiz in top form look potentially devastating particulary at home.
What are your predictions ahead of the weekend’s fixtures?
