Everton v Crystal Palace

Sam: 1-0

Everton have suffered narrow defeats to Tottenham and then to Newcastle but they have caused problems for Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United at home. 

Whilst the defence looks loads better from the leaky leftovers of last season, scoring goals has been a massive problem for Everton. Palace have Wilfried Zaha and Eberechi Eze who look lively but they haven’t won away since April. I think Everton win.

Steve: 0-1

I can’t say I get too excited by Everton. The Blues have lost three on the trot, failing to have a shot on target in the defeats to Spurs and Newcastle, and the clash against Palace has the makings of a tight affair. 

Palace suffered last minute heartbreak against Chelsea recently, but they’ve recovered by going three undefeated with an ease in fixture difficulty. Wilfried Zaha and Eberechi Eze ooze class and that could be the difference on Merseyside.

Chelsea v Manchester United

Sam: 1-0

The last four games between these two have finished in a draw but travelling to London has been a problem for Manchester United in 2022 - they have lost on their last three visits. 

Graham Potter has already outfoxed United once this season, and although Erik ten Hag’s team looked better against Tottenham, they aren’t the finished article yet. 

Steve: 1-1

Don’t bother watching, it will be a draw – this fixture is always a draw! Okay, jokes aside, they’ve drawn six of the last eight Premier league games and I can also see this ending in stalemate.

Are Manchester United back? I thought they were fantastic against Spurs. Constant pressure to win back the ball, winning the personal duels, the fans were even singing about Fred! 

For Chelsea, Kepa has been outstanding; his goals prevention tally at 4.3 is the best in the top flight at the moment, but the Red Devils can breach the Chelsea defence. Unfortunately, they might concede as well.

Leeds v Fulham

Sam: 2-2

Jesse Marsch needs a win. The fans are turning and Fulham have already got rid of one under-pressure manager this week – they both score goals and usually concede, and I expect a blood and thunder contest at Elland Road. 

Fulham have lost three of their last four away games but they can grab a point here. 

Steve: 1-1

Contrasting Thursday nights for these two sides. Leeds fans were seen angrily asking questions of the players and management staff after their disappointing showing at Leicester, while Fulham were tickling the bellies of Aston Villa at the Cottage. 

Fulham can’t have it that easy again, can they? Leeds are more of a threat at home and can gain a point.

Southampton v Arsenal

Sam: 0-3

Ralph Hasenhuttl is not the worst manager in the world but I think his Southampton tenure is coming towards its natural conclusion. 

A heavy defeat could be the tipping point and Arsenal are relatively refreshed after resting a few in their Europa League game. Saints kept a clean sheet against Bournemouth but Gabriel Martinelli, Bukayo Saka, Martin Odegaard and Gabriel Jesus are a bit tougher to deal with.

Steve: 1-1

Ralph Hasenhuttl has eased the pressure with four points from the last two games, but they face a daunting task as runaway leaders (yet second favourites for the title) Arsenal head to the south coast.

I sense that Arsenal have had the rub of the green lately and I can see the Saints gaining another crucial point here.

Wolverhampton Wanderers v Leicester City

Sam: 0-2

Two wins in a row for Leicester? It might just happen. After being snookered in their attempts to appoint Mick Beale, the Wolves players know that Steve Davis is in charge until the World Cup. 

Brendan Rodgers would love that certainty. What he does have is James Maddison returning and that is a boost to any team.

Steve: 1-1

I went to this fixture in 2003 and I’ll be honest, I was absolutely delighted to see the visitors race into a 3-0 lead. Imagine how nice that pie tasted at half time. Well, I nearly choked on it after an hour when Wolves scored 3 quick goals and then Henri Camara bagged a late winner. I can’t see this one being anywhere near as exciting and both clubs might be happy with a point.

Tottenham v Newcastle

Sam: 1-2

Alan Shearer said that Tottenham were found out against Manchester United, and I think that has been coming for a while. 

They have over-achieved this season and I think a very well put together Newcastle can take the points at Spurs. 

Harry Kane was the only sign of life in the Spurs attack at Old Trafford and Newcastle will know this could be a statement win… they don’t beat Spurs often with only one win in their last 10… but I think they win this one.

Steve: 1-1

I’ve gone for so many draws this week, but I just can’t trust Spurs right now. It feels like an Antonio Conte meltdown is just around the corner. The hosts have conceded 174 shots this season, a mighty tally, but the xG per shot against is 0.088, the lowest in the Premier League,

Mind you, the form Miguel Almiron is in right now is incredible with everything he touches turning into goals. Newcastle can continue their charge for a Top 6 place by making the long trip home with a point.
