Hi everyone and welcome to my PL predictions article for GW6. Last week I successfully predicted 3 correct results. Who saw the Spurs, Liverpool and Chelsea results coming?! Anyway, here goes with my GW6 predictions - enjoy!
West Ham : Spurs
It seems that Spurs are more likely to win away than home! Their last away game, 3-0 against Everton, was in stark contrast to their 0-0 ‘home’ draw against. This week they face a rejuvenated West Ham side, 4 points and 2 clean sheets since the international break has lifted spirits. However I except Spurs to come through.
West Ham 1-3 Spurs
Burnley : Huddersfield
Burnley have looked really solid at the back and played admirable last week to earn a draw at Anfield. To some it probably wasn’t a surprise - they beat Chelsea and draw to Spurs away from Turf Moor. Huddersfield started really well and need to win again to keep up their momentum. It will be tough for Huddersfield score, although a Tom Heaton - less Burnley certainly strengthens their case.
Burnley 1-0 Huddersfield
Everton : Bournemouth
Bournemouth finally got their first win last Friday against a, quite frankly, poor Brighton outfit. They dominated the game and this week face a trip to a downbeat, low on confidence, Everton side. After their really solid summer Everton’s new signings have yet to show why were bought. This game is perfect to bring the fans back on side.
Everton 1-1 Bournemouth
Man City : Crystal Palace
Even the most optimistic Palace fan will be worried for this one. Man City have looked irresistible in the last few weeks. 11 goals scored and none conceded in their last two games, Palace haven’t scored a goal all season! However I think Palace May surprise a few people and be more solid at the back, Roy Hodgson will shaw them up and I think they will stay up. After this a trip to United and a visit of Chelsea loom, they need to pick up points quickly.
Man City 2-0 Palace
Southampton : Man United
The Saints have enjoyed a solid if unspectacular start to life under Pellegrino. They have looked good defensively and will make it tough for Lukaku and co to break them down. United seem to be developing a habit for a late onslaught - are they fitter and stronger than other teams? I don’t know but Saints will have to be on their A* game to get anything.
Southampton 1-3 United
Stoke : Chelsea
Chelsea were disappointed last week to be held to a goalless draw against Arsenal, Stoke were also poor in their defeat to Newcastle. This won’t be an easy game for Chelsea but with Shawcross, Wimmer and Zouma all unable to play - you have to back Chelsea.
Stoke 1-3 Chelsea
Swansea : Watford
Swansea were lucky and awesome last week, Harry Kane hit the post and could have had a penalty but Swansea’s defensive work was admirable. I don’t expect them to be as defensive this week. Watford look good, aside from their 6-0 drubbing last week.
Swansea 0-0 Watford
Leicester : Liverpool
If Jamie Vardy is fit and firing then Liverpool will be in trouble, their first choice centre back pairing of Lovren and Matip are both injured, Vardy will be licking his lips! I expect a really open game and one that promises goals with both teams looking slightly shaky at the back.
Leicester 2-1 Liverpool
Brighton : Newcastle
After their win at West Brom, Brighton must have thought they would kick on however a loss at previously winless Bournemouth has pegged them back. Newcastle on the other hand are flying with Atsu and Richie looking in prime form. Brighton need the points and I think they will get 1.
Brighton 1-1 Newcastle
Arsenal : West Brom
Arsenal have improved in recent games, they defended really well against Chelsea and probably should have won it. West Brom have looked solid without offering much going forward, what did we expect?! They will make it tough for Arsenal and always offer threat at set pieces however I think Arsenal have more than enough to keep them at bay and will break through the Baggie back line.
Arsenal 2-0 West Brom
