8 Super Predictions For The English Premier League This Weekend

1 Leicester City vs Chelsea

Leicester City's inconsistencies this season have seen them register just 4 wins from 11 PL games. Unlike the Foxes, Chelsea have so far impressed in the Premier League. The Blues have only lost once, winning 8 times and drawing twice.

Chelsea have also dominated their previous meetings with The Foxes. The Blues have only lost 2 of their last 10 EPL matches versus Leicester, winning 4.

Based on these stats, we are backing Chelsea to win at the King Power Stadium.

2 Aston Villa vs Brighton

Aston Villa have lost each of their last 5 Premier League games. In overall, the hosts have suffered 7 defeats from 11 league matches.

On the contrary, Brighton have only lost 2 of their 11 PL clashes, winning 4. Away from home, Brighton are yet to lose with 2 wins and 3 draws.

Having considered recent forms of both teams, we are predicting a Brighton win on Saturday.

3 Burnley vs Crystal Palace

Burnley earned a very important point from their 1:1 draw against Chelsea on matchday 11. Prior to that 1:1 stalemate against Chelsea, Burnley had defeated Brentford 3:1 at Turf Moor.

However, on Saturday, the Toffees will come up against very tough opponents in the name of Crystal Palace. The visitors have won each of their last 2 games, including a 2:0 success over Manchester City.

With the form that Crystal Palace are in at moment, a third consecutive win for the Eagles is very much possible. However, Burnley have beaten them 6 times from their last 10 EPL meetings. It's for this reason that we are predicting a double chance for Burnley.

4 Newcastle vs Brentford

After an start to the season, Brentford seems to have lost energy and momentum in recent matches. They have lost 5 of their 11 PL games.

Brentford have never won a league game against Newcastle, losing each of the previous 4 meetings. As a result, we are backing Newcastle to get their first league win this weekend.

5 Norwich city vs Southampton

Norwich City's 2:1 victory against Brentford just before the international break was their first win of the season. Prior to that, Norwich had lost 8 of their opening 10 league games.

Southampton, meanwhile, are undefeated in each of their last 4 EPL matches, winning 3. Against Norwich City, Southampton have won 4 of the last 5 Premier League meetings.

Putting these statistics into consideration, we are going for a Southampton win.

6 Wolves vs West Ham

Just before the international break, Wolves were one of the in-form teams in Premier League. They have clinched 4 wins from their last 5 league matches.

Wolves have also dominated the last 6 PL clashes versus West Ham. The hosts were victorious in all but 2 of their previous 6 EPL meetings with West Ham. Based on these, our prediction for this match is a Wolves win.

7 Liverpool vs Arsenal

Liverpool's 3:2 away defeat to West Ham was their first of the season. Otherwise, the Reds have 6 wins and 4 draws in the league so far.

On Saturday, Liverpool will be meeting an Arsenal side that is enjoying an 8-match unbeaten run. Since suffering consecutive defeats from their opening 3 league games, Arsenal have lost a league clash, winning 6 of those 8 league matches.

However, that long unbeaten run for the Gunners could be coming to an end this weekend. Arsenal have lost 4 of their 5 league games against Liverpool.

Considering how poor the Gunners have been against Liverpool, we pick a home win as our best prediction here.

8 Manchester City vs Everton

Manchester City come into this clash fresh from their 2:0 derby win against Manchester United. Everton, meanwhile, could only manage a boring 0:0 draw against a toothless Tottenham Hotspur team on matchday 11.

City have been the dominant side in recent head to head clashes between these two sides, winning each of the last 7 league meetings. As a result, we are backing Man City to get their 8th consecutive win against Everton this weekend.
