Game 1) Aston Villa West Ham
West Ham win
Aston Villa Team
19 J Ayew
West Ham Team
11 E Valencia
Plain and simple, Aston Villa are struggling and need reinforcements come JANUARY but sit bottom of the Premier League as of right now, a week to go until they can buy players but I think they will struggle to get anything against West Ham today, I’ll say 2-0 and another loss for Villa
Game 2) Chelsea vs Watford
19 Diego Costa
Chelsea showed their true colors against Sunderland, the first game without Jose Mourinho in charge and for the most part, looked like a revitalized team, a confident team where the majority of players were glad Jose was gone…I don’t care who says what…the players got rid of Mourinho and will pick up wins again now which will likely continue today against a high flying Watford. It will be close but I predict that Chelsea will edge this game…2-1. Watford will bring the fight but Chelsea will show that form that vanished after May and reemerged against Sunderland…the second Mourinho is gone….funny that…does anyone really buy the whole ‘players had nothing to do with it?’
Game 3) Bournemouth vs Crystal Palace
Palace Win but I want to say Draw
Crystal Palace Team
Both teams have done amazingly well recently and I don’t want to pick a winner as I don’t want either to slip and lose any kind of ground…If Bournemouth stay in the league this season, it would be amazing! However, Palace are shocking me as well with their form a little more so. I will give Palace a 1-0 win over Bournemouth this rainy afternoon but it will be very close.
Game 4) Liverpool vs Leicester City
What can I say, I would love Leicester to continue this amazing run and win once again and I believe that they could definitely beat this Liverpool team today but I look at how Liverpool have performed against the likes of Manchester City and Chelsea and feel like they could shock us with a win as well. Klopp is going to do magical things at Anfield once he has settled down properly with some players he has brought in but Leicester City are riding high and look unstoppable, I don’t think either team will win so I will go for a 1-1 draw today as each team cancels the other one out!
Klopp is a great manager and I can’t wait to see what he does with Liverpool but I have grown to really respect Leicester for all they are doing this season…as a football fan, despite supporting Arsenal, I also root on Leicester to defy the odds and shock the football world, to give us all something to talk about for years afterwards!
Game 5) Manchester City vs Sunderland
Manchester City Team
42 Y Touré
17 De Bruyne
03 van Aanholt
14 Jordi Gómez
Sorry Sunderland but I have to say Manchester City to win here, they want to make up the lost ground after losing to Arsenal this week, they want to stay in the race and not let Arsenal and Leicester turn it into a two team race! Sunderland look like they are struggling at the moment and perhaps need a new face or two to come in to save their season! Don’t see them winning but I have a feeling that if a shocker were to come today…Sunderland would be the ones to do it…after this season so far…why not but I’ll say City win 2-0
Game 6) Swansea vs West Brom
04 Ki Sung-yueng
West Brom Team
Please let this game be decent…sorry but I look at this and dread it…I mean after last week’s 0-0 bore fest…surely Swansea have to come back with that much more today…surely! However, I don’t see West Brom doing much better but I would say they have the better chance of getting all 3 points if anyone has to! But a 0-0 for me today…I like Swansea and hope they get this mess sorted out! Don’t want to lose them to the Championship!
Game 7) Spurs vs Norwich
24 R Bennett
And finally, we come to Spurs vs Norwich and well…I see the winner being Spurs today, they have form and don’t look like they’ll lose anytime soon at the moment so as for today, I don’t see Norwich overcoming them and beating them at White Hart Lane! A decent game but Spurs to win without much trouble!
I’ll say a 1-0 win for Spurs today as they continue the on-form they have been doing for quite a while now
