EPL Predictions: Arsenal set for disappointment at Swansea

Swansea v Arsenal (Prediction 1-1)

Very easy to go for an Arsenal win here, but I’m backing Swansea to stay up after the appointment of Carlos Carvalhal and this would be a huge point, especially after taking three off Liverpool during the last Premier League match day.

A draw today will help their cause as they find themselves in an every point matters situation that comes with the relegation fight that they’ve become accustomed to in recent years. It will probably pay to be on Arsenal though, who need to pick up if they are to qualify for the Champions League this season, after failing to last year.

Still, I’ll take my chance with a score draw in this one.

 

West Ham v Crystal Palace (Prediction 2-1)

This could go either way.

Another one of those fixtures this season where both clubs have changed managers and improved enough to look reasonably safe in the Premier League for the foreseeable future.

West Ham are unbeaten in the Premier League since before Christmas, a fair job being done by former Everton and Manchester United boss David Moyes, that he maybe isn’t gaining enough plaudits for.

Moyes’ men to take this by the one goal with home advantage being helpful, perhaps.

 

Huddersfield v Liverpool (Prediction 1-3)

Huddersfield have fallen out-of-sorts after what was a decent start to the season.  

They’ve lost their last three league games and failed to beat a struggling Championship side in Birmingham City in the FA Cup this weekend, Wagner did make changes, when it could be argued he perhaps shouldn’t have?

Starting a strong side can be of benefit to your league form as West Brom boss Alan Pardew proved when he wasn’t scared to start a relatively strong side in their 2-0 third round win over League 2 Exeter, the clubs form subsequently improved.

Whilst Liverpool have lost to both Swansea and West Brom these past two weeks after beating Manchester City, but I think they’ll get back to winning ways in this one. Expect goals!
