Blog | Premier League Predictions | Matchday 9
The international break is over, the Premier League is back - time for more predictions!
Saturday 20th October, 12:30pm kick-off
Chelsea 4-2 Manchester United
I really don't want Chelsea to win, but I fully expect Eden Hazard to completely tear apart this leaky United defence and keep the pressure on Mourinho.
Saturday 20th October, 3pm kick-off
Bournemouth 2-1 Southampton
After destroying Watford last game, I fully expect Bournemouth to win again this time out.
Cardiff City 3-2 Fulham
Fulham have a ludicrously leaky defence, and - although the same could be said for Cardiff - I think the home team might just edge it.
Manchester City 3-0 Burnley
A pretty routine win for City this time out - could easily see them scoring even more than just three.
Newcastle United 1-0 Brighton & Hove Albion
Seriously, Newcastle are overdue a home win and surely they can't blow it this time... Right?
West Ham United 1-2 Tottenham Hotspur
Spurs haven't been great this season, but they keep bloody winning. Great for them, sodding irritating for me.
Wolverhampton Wanderers 3-1 Watford
Wolves' bright start to the season has lasted longer than Watford's, and I fully expect that trend to continue here.
Saturday 20th October, 5:30pm kick-off
Huddersfield Town 1-2 Liverpool
Liverpool's incredible attack of last season is only doing just enough right now, and I can the reds just edging this away game as a result.
Sunday 21st October, 4pm kick-off
Everton 2-1 Crystal Palace
Both teams have been pretty inconsistent so far this season and I think this game's going to be close, but I can't see it being a draw - home advantage wins it.
Monday 22nd October, 8pm
Arsenal 4-2 Leicester City
Arsenal's attack looks to have finally clicked and are pretty much always strong at the Emirates, so I can see them scoring a few, but the leaky defence making things a bit closer than they should be.
Here's how my predictions for the season so far - including those above - would leave the table looking after this weekend.
