Blog | Premier League Predictions | Matchday 12
Just the two days of football this weekend, although split almost equally between Saturday and Sunday - time for some predictions.
Saturday 10th November, 12:30pm kick-off
Cardiff City 0-0 Brighton & Hove Albion
Brighton aren't doing badly, but I can see the home side just managing to hold on for what they start the game with.
(Thanks to this post being late, I know that this prediction is wrong as far as the scoreline goes with Brighton taking the lead; it remains to be seen if Cardiff can fight back for a draw)
Saturday 10th November, 3pm kick-off
Huddersfield Town 0-2 West Ham United
I don't think West Ham are particularly great so far this season, but I don't think they'll have to be to win this game either.
Leicester City 3-1 Burnley
The first home game after the death of their chairman will be an emotional affair, but I think Burnley will be accommodating visitors and won't ruin the occasion.
Newcastle United 0-1 Bournemouth
I think this will be close, but Newcastle's dreadful home record will see them just miss out.
Southampton 0-1 Watford
This will also be a close game and much will depend on which version of Watford turns up, but I can still see the visitors nicking a win regardless.
Saturday 10th November, 5:30pm kick-off
Crystal Palace 1-2 Tottenham Hotspur
I really want Spurs to start dropping points, but I can'st see it happening here.
Sunday 11th November, 12pm kick-off
Liverpool 2-0 Fulham
The home side have hit a couple of bumps in the road in the past week, but I expect the defensively dreadful Fulham to help them get back into the swing of things.
Sunday 11th November, 2:15pm kick-off
Chelsea 3-1 Everton
This one's pretty simple: Everton aren't doing that badly, but Chelsea will simply be too good for them to deal with.
Sunday 11th November, 4:30pm kick-off
Arsenal 2-0 Wolverhampton Wanderers
Much like Everton, Wolves haven't been bad this season, but they're in that mid-table group of sides that shouldn't get relegated, but won't challenge the top six either.
Manchester City 4-2 Manchester United
It's not been a great week for City with the details about how they cheated their way around Financial Fair Play (which is getting far less media attention in the UK than it should), but I think winning the derby and upsetting Mourinho will cheer them up no end.
Here's how my predictions for the season so far - including those above - would leave the table looking after this weekend.
