Fulham vs Arsenal


Fulham vs Arsenal

Craven Cottage, KO 12:45pm

Arsenal will be boosted by their demolition of Fenerbahce during the week, but are still blighted by injuries to key men that could keep them quiet this afternoon. However, even with those players missing Fulham’s ‘lazy’ front line could fail to perforate their defence. Darren Bent will be making his debut, though, so keep an eye on him.

Prediction: 1-2

Everton vs WBA

Everton vs West Bromwich Albion

Goodison Park, KO 3PM

Roberto Martinez still has Leighton Baines and Marouane Fellaini to call on for the time being, whilst their opponents have just acquired their former target Scott Sinclair. However, the Baggies will be without Nicolas Anelka for the time being after he was allowed time away with compassionate leave.

Prediction – 1-0



Hull City vs Norwich City

KC Stadium, 3pm KO

The Tigers did well to strengthen their squad over the past two weeks, but their new boys still aren’t a patch on Norwich’s new recruits, and with Johan Elmander on the books Hughton can once again turn to physically domineering forward who is all elbows and flicks. Much like they had with Grant Holt.

Prediction – 1-2

Newcastle vs West Ham


Newcastle United vs West Ham United

St James’ Park, 3pm KO

A game so hard to call for such poor reasons, it’s hard to tell who will score first in what will inevitably be a draw. Alan Pardew is so under fire that he would claim a point as a victory whilst West Ham’s display against Cardiff last week was so placid it’ll be amazing if they simply turn up.

Prediction – 1-1

Southampton vs Sunderland


Southampton vs Sunderland

St Mary’s, 3pm KO

The form book would be completely redundant for this fixture, as both of these sides are brimming with new recruits who weren’t there last year. However, the Saints may have spent big, but they’ve spent wisely, and just because Sunderland have overhauled their side, Paolo Di Canio is still in charge, rendering them useless.

Prediction – 2-0

Mile Jedinak


Stoke City vs Crystal Palace

Britannia Stadium, 3pm KO

A real top flight, entertainment guaranteed, football on the ground, masterclass of the short pass, tickets worth your £65 affair here. This game is going to be so exciting that they will have to turn people away at the door. Or maybe not.

Prediction – 1-0

Villa vs Liverpool


Aston Villa vs Liverpool

Villa PArk, 5:30 ko

Villa surprised everyone by comfortably beating Arsenal last weekend, and much can be taken from their defeat to Chelsea in the week. However, their leaky defence is likely to be breached again by a Liverpool side with an impressive array of attacking talent. Expect lots of goals, or none at all.

Prediction – 2-2

Soccer - Carling Cup - Final - Cardiff City v Liverpool - Wembley Stadium Pablo Zabaleta


Cardiff City vs Manchester City

Cardiff City Stadium, Sunday 4pm

The Bluebirds have taken big teams to the wire before, both of their recent cup final appearances can attest to that. But Manchester City will probably have too much for them to handle, especially with the mood they’re in at the moment – it could get ugly!

Prediction – 0-3

Spurs vs Swansea


Tottenham Hotspur vs Swansea City

White Heart Lane, Sunday 4pm

The two European competitors from midweek meet at the end of the week, how poetic! Both have brought some exciting new players in this summer, and even though they were slow out of the blocks last weekend they may have too much for the Swans.

Prediction – 2-1

Man Utd vs Chelsea


Manchester United vs Chelsea

Old Trafford, Monday 8pm

The big one! Jose meets the new United boss on their patch, it’s 2004 all over again! But in all seriousness, this one is probably going to be fairly high scoring and pretty damn exciting.

Prediction – 2-2
