Saturday/Saturday Premiership Football Predictions!

Aston Villa V Wolves
A tough east midlands derby, grudge match. Agbonlahor (love saying that name) picked up an injury midweek, so Emile Hesky may start up front instead. Martin O’Neill’s boys are still the only Premiership club to remain unbeaten in 2010 (ask the kids say: twenty-ten). Granted there have been a bucket load of draws, but they can be an awesome side on their day. Wolves are teetering on the brink of relegation and their victory over fellow strugglers, Burnley, last week was only their second in eleven games. But, that said, it’s a derby match, local bragging rights are up for grabs, so the men in orange may turn on the style. Methinks not though. Villa will prevail.
Prediction: Aston Villa 3 – 1 Wolves

Man Utd V Liverpool
Last year the cheeky scousers marched in Manchester and trounced the buggers!! They went back to Merseyside beaming, 4-1 in their favor. Do I think a repeat is on the cards; no. Although, Liverpool had a great performance against Lille on Thursday, Torres is looking like he is finally back to his able self. Manchester can’t seem to put foot right now, Golden boy Rooney keeps scoring and the nifty old Welshmen, Giggs is back from a broken arm. To keep the whole title race interesting a Liverpool victory would be amazing, even a draw would be marvelous; but I just can’t see Liverpool turning on the charm and causing an upset.
Prediction: Scallies 2 – 1 Scoucers

Blackburn V Chelsea
Speaking of keeping the title race interesting; cue Chelsea. They boys from the bridge looked deflated and outclassed against Inter this week and although this is the League, I think all is not well in the land of milk and honey and the Kings Road. Maybe the pressure is finally getting to Ancelotti’s lads? They need to get straight back on the horse and win, but Blackburn at Ewood Park is a tricky prospect, having only lost two games at home all season. Allerdyce has restored some pride and passion into Blackburn, but with first choice keeper, Paul Robinson injured, that may cause some jitters at the back. Unlike the above fixture, I like the chances of Blackburn causing an upset here and beating Chelsea, the time is ripe after the Champions League exit; certainly a few thousand north Londoners will agree.
Prediction: Blackburn 2 – 1 Chelsea

Everton V Bolton
Both teams are coming off a nice run of wins; eight and three respectively. Everton have bid farewell and bon voyage to their pesky little American lone star, Landon Donovan, who, it must be said, performed brilliantly while at Goodison. Arteta is back in the Blues side and has instantly made his presence felt, David Moyes’ side have been excellent lately and winning with style and although fellow Scot, Coyle, has turned Bolton around since he took over the reins, Everton possess too much class and talent to bother Bolton. No worries for the toffees.
Prediction: Everton 3 – 0 Bolton

Stoke V Tottenham
If Spurs want to keep in line with their top four finish a new at The Britannia Stadium is a must. What won’t help matters is the fact that Defoe is out for a few weeks with a hamstring injury. Even though the Russian lad, Pavlychenko, has begun to find the scoring touch, Redknapp’s team still have a sizable laundry list of injured players. As I say every week, Stoke are a very physicals side and could certainly out muscle a side of Tottenhams diminutive stature (apart from lanky Couch). They have also only lost one in the last ten League games. Last years fixture saw Stoke take all three points and win 2-1. I’m for an encore, repeat performance from the Potters, take it a way maestro!
Prediction: Stoke 2 – 1 Tottenham

Arsenal V West Ham
There seems to be a London derby every week? Has is that possible? Wenger will be spurred on by the fact that a win would see The Gunners go top of the Premiership; if only for a day and a crucial cog in his well oiled machine, Cesc Fabregas, is back in the team. They will also be chasing their sixth win on the trot if the three points can be bagged. West Ham are a different story; having only won away once all season and they got thumped last week by fellow Londoners, Chelsea. It looking dismal for Zola and this weekend’s match won’t help. Personally I would like Arsenal to win the Premiership, its still a tall order, but do-able and much more so with Arsene at the helm.
Prediction: Arsenal 3 – 0 West Ham

    It is useful to try everything in practice anyway and I like that here it’s always possible to find something new. 🙂
