Every day this week one of our football tipsters will be putting themselves on the line, giving you their predictions on how all six of this weekends games will go down. Today we have Dean who will go through his six score predictions and the reason’s behind each one.
Arsenal v Bournemouth
Arsenal will be under immense pressure to secure the three points this weekend, with the Emirates crowd likely to be baying for blood if the Gunners don’t score in the opening thirty minutes. Bournemouth have had a really difficult start themselves and will be desperate to get points on the board sooner rather than later. I’m expecting them to make it difficult for Arsenal here, but for the home side to eventually break their resistance and take the three points.
Dean’s prediction: Arsenal 2-0 Bournemouth
Brighton v West Brom
The stats suggest this won’t be the most entertaining game of football for the neutral, with these two teams both considered as conservative in their approach to games. All of their games combined six matches so far have featured under 2.5 goals, although Brighton looked bright against Watford last time out. With this their first targeted ‘winnable’ home game of the season, I’m expecting Brighton to raise their levels substantially and pick up their first victory of the season.
Dean’s prediction: Brighton 1-0 West Brom
Everton v Tottenham Hotspur
Both teams will be keen to make a statement here, as each look to establish themselves as serious contenders for the top four. Everton have really struggled against Spurs in recent times, currently finding themselves on a run of no wins in nine Premier League games against them since a 2-1 win in December 2012. Tottenham, strangely, may feel more comfortable playing away from home at present and they will have their eyes on three points here.
Dean’s prediction: Everton 1-2 Tottenham
Leicester v Chelsea
Leicester’s extremely difficult start to the season now sees them face Chelsea - that after playing Arsenal and Manchester United in two of their first three games, also. Chelsea on the other hand were impressive against Everton, easing fears that they could be in for another poor title defence. I’m expecting a comfortable Chelsea win and for them to lay down a statement of intent in doing so.
Dean’s prediction: Leicester 0-3 Chelsea
Southampton v Watford
Southampton have enjoyed a pretty decent start to the campaign, taking five points from a possible nine in the Premier League so far. Similarly, Watford have also taken five points so far, keeping two clean sheets from their three games just as the Saints themselves have managed. With home advantage on their side, I’m backing Mauricio Pellegrino’s men to win here.
Dean’s prediction: Southampton 2-1 Watford
Sunderland v Sheffield United
After a promising start, Sunderland now find themselves 19th in the Championship table after taking just a point from their last three matches, including most recently a 3-0 loss at the hands of Barnsley. Sheffield United have a 100% home record but are yet to get anything on the road, making this one of the tougher games to call. With the Blades struggling on the road, I’m tipping Sunderland to pick up a positive result this weekend.
Dean’s prediction: Sunderland 2-0 Sheffield United
