Crystal Palace v Newcastle (Prediction 2-0)
Just two points separate these sides in the Premier League table, but the mood you get the feeling is very different. Palace, having got themselves out of what looked like certain danger, look among the favourites to beat the drop this season.
I’m not a big fan of Roy Hodgson, certainly not during his time as England manager, but he has really improved the Eagles and it’s pleasing to see Timothy Fosu-Mensah playing every week and impressing whilst out on loan.
Newcastle, in contrast, are a club that I feel are in real danger of being relegated once again. They don’t seem to have the strongest squad in the league and Rafa Benitez hasn’t had the financial backing he perhaps needed to strengthen with.
I think Palace win here.
Liverpool v Tottenham (Prediction 2-2)
This should be a good viewing for the neutral. It’s the type of game I expect Liverpool will really step up for, especially at Anfield.
The Reds have a strong record at home against Spurs and Spurs have struggled in big away games under Mauricio Pochettino. Clearly though, this is the type of fixture where anything can happen.
I think goals are guaranteed and I get the feeling that with both teams so eager to keep climbing the table, it’d be fitting that they shared the points.
Watford v Chelsea (Prediction 1-2)
I’m going to let Chelsea off for the 3-0 loss to Bournemouth last week and predict them to win at Vicarage Road.
I think new managers tend to bring about a change in fortune, attitude and performance and it’s about making results out of that, Watford should put up a strong showing without winning, offering the supporters hope of finding some form in the upcoming fixtures.
But Chelsea should be too strong and I wouldn’t be too surprised to see Olivier Giroud score, should he be involved.
