No guff, on with the predictions!
Saturday 29th September, 12:30pm kick-off
West Ham United 1-2 Manchester United
Mourinho will want a reaction after being beaten on penalties by Derby during the week, and I can see West Ham's leaky defence being all too happy to oblige.
Saturday 29th September, 3pm kick-off
Arsenal 2-0 Watford
The Gunners seem to have found some form, while Watford's red-hot start to the season has chilled somewhat recently.
Everton 1-0 Fulham
Both teams are struggling to make an impression, so I'm giving it to the team with home advantage who have been unlucky to not have more points by now.
Huddersfield Town 0-2 Tottenham Hotspur
As a result, about as safe a prediction as you can make this weekend... annoyingly.
Manchester City 3-0 Brighton & Hove Albion
Okay, scratch that - this is the safest result to predict this weekend; it just depends on how many goals City feel like scoring.
Newcastle United 1-1 Leicester City
A compact Benitez side at home should be able to get at least a point from the Foxes.
Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-1 Southampton
The new boys should continue their decent start to the season and follow up a point at Old Trafford with a win against the stuttering Saints
Saturday 29th September, 5:30pm kick-off
Chelsea 2-2 Liverpool
A re-match of sorts from midweek, and I imagine both clubs will be happy to avoid defeat here.
Sunday 30th September, 4pm kick-off
Cardiff City 0-2 Burnley
Burnley finally kick-started their season with a demolition of Bournemouth last weekend, and I can see that continuing (hopefully) against Neil Warnock's team
Monday 1st October, 8pm kick-off
Bournemouth 2-1 Crystal Palace
Bournemouth have been decent at home and I can see them just edging it here.
This is the first time I've put my predictions on the site, but here's how my predictions for the season so far - including those above - would leave the table looking after this weekend.
