Premier League – Our round eight predictions

Premier League – Our round eight predictions

We all love the Premier League, no? As an Arsenal fan, with the victory against Qarabağ, I couldn’t believe that the team are winning 8 games in a row (Dan’s gonna kill me when he returns). Can they make it 9 this Sunday?

Anyway, Dan’s trip to Samoa with technical difficulties (this is the reason he’s not providing the descriptions this time) is why I’m in charge of the predictions this week (he’ll be back soon). Let’s kick off the predictions with a bang!


Brighton vs West Ham

Alf

Beating the Red Devils can be seen as a great achievement, let’s hope that the Hammers will continue their streak. 2-1 West Ham

Blake

The Hammers are starting to pick up steam, finally, with seven points in three games. Brighton away will be a challenge, but not one they can’t overcome. 2-1 West Ham

Dan

3-2 West Ham


Burnley vs Huddersfield

Alf

Will be a hard fight for the Clarets but they’ll win at the expense of David Wagner’s job. 1-0 Burnley

Blake

Huddersfield are really quite terrible, aren’t they? Three goals scored so far, sixteen conceded, two draws only. Burnley, like West Ham, are starting to improve and will win easily. 2-0 Burnley

Dan

1-0 Burnley


Palace vs Wolves

Alf

The hungry wolves are hunting for the eagles, who doesn’t seem to be able to fly any higher. 2-0 Wolves.

Blake

The two least goal-friendly sides in the Premier League go up against each other. There have been thirteen goals in Crystal Palace’s PL games this season and fourteen in Wolves’, against an average of 19.9. The trend should continue. 0-0 draw 

Dan

1-1 draw


Watford vs Bournemouth

Alf

The Hornets may have lost against Arsenal but they’ll be buzzing back home with strength. 2-1 Watford

Blake

Two teams I certainly didn’t expect to be in this position seven games in go head-to-head and I can’t see either of them having enough quality to win, nor enough weakness to lose. 2-2 draw

Dan

2-1 Watford


Leicester City vs Everton

Alf

With Jamie Vardy on fire, I believe that there will be more goals. 2-2 draw

Blake

Everton ostensibly played a second team in the EFL Cup in midweek so I can’t imagine there’d be any major selection problems. The Foxes have been good but they haven’t played half-decent opposition since they lost to Bournemouth and I think the same will happen here. 2-1 Everton

Dan

2-1 Leicester


Tottenham vs Cardiff

Alf

Barça are no Cardiff. End of. 3-0 Tottenham

Blake

Cardiff really are a bit useless too. Spurs are a good side, even if they haven’t been stellar so far this season, and they’ll take advantage of the Welsh side’s weaknesses to put a few past them. 4-0 Tottenham

Dan

3-0 Tottenham


Manchester United vs Newcastle

Alf

If Mourinho doesn’t win this one, it’ll be the end of an era. 1-0 United

Blake

United have lost to West Ham and drawn with Valencia in the last week, and I’m not seeing any signs that they’ll improve by much. Don’t get me wrong, they’ll win, it’s Newcastle they’re playing. But it won’t be convincing. 1-0 United

Dan

1-0 Newcastle


Fulham vs Arsenal

Alf

Calum Chambers may be able to face his parent club but that’s another story for another time. And is it the time for the Gunners to show their away kits? 3-1 Arsenal

Blake

Say what you like about Arsenal but they’re not a bad side. They’ve just beaten Qarabag playing what looked like a somewhat half-hearted lineup and I think they’ll win again. Fulham haven’t impressed many people this season, but they’ll at least have a say in this match. 3-2 Arsenal 

Dan

1-1 draw


Southampton vs Chelsea

Alf

A one-sided contest expected. 3-0 Chelsea

Blake

What happened to Southampton? Three years ago I would have said that the Big Six was becoming a Big Seven. They’ve really fallen by the wayside. Chelsea, on the other hand, have rebounded from a poor season and are doing well. They’ll win this one, no question. 3-1 Chelsea

Dan

2-1 Chelsea


Liverpool vs Manchester City

Alf

An improved LFC squad should be able to win this one. 2-1 Liverpool

Blake

Liverpool put their best side out at Chelsea and drew. They put them out again in Napoli and lost. They’ll do the same, against the incumbent champions, and they’ll lose again. 2-1 City

Dan

3-2 Liverpool
