Premier League Predictions
As the weekend is fast approaching, we have hereby provided you with this weekend’s English premier league fixtures alongside the predictions for the various matches to help you make the correct score predictions for the oncoming EPL matchday 12.
Cardiff vs. Brighton
The game between Cardiff and Brighton will be this weekend’s opening fixture as the Seagulls travel to meet Neil Warnock’s men. Brighton’s last weekend defeat by Everton means the team will be on a revenge mission at least to recoup some points in order to recover from last week’s loss. On the other hand, Cardiff sits comfortably at number 19 with just five points from eleven matches. This weekend’s loss will stamp their place in the relegation line. Will the Bluebirds change rise from the relegation territory offer this weekend. Just a win for them depending on the outcome of the other fixtures, the bluebirds can breathe easy outside the relegation zone. However, this is unlikely based on Brighton’s performance. Despite their last week’s 3-1 loss to Everton, the Seagulls are not doing badly off. They are most likely going to collect three points from Cardiff.
Score Prediction: 0-1
Huddersfield vs. West Ham
Huddersfield is fighting for a space at the relation zone while West Ham occupies position 13 in the table rankings. West Ham United so far remains a very competitive team in the English premier league. However, for Huddersfield, things are dire and they have to pull up their socks. Occupying position 18 in the relegation zone is not something for any team to smile about. Maybe this weekend will come as a good opportunity for them to move from this territory! In the two team’s head to head action, West ham have eloped with 2 wins while Huddersfield has had no victory nor forced a draw. Due to their dismal performance, Huddersfield has little or no chance against the West ham side. West Ham United’s are likely to extend their last week’s 4-2 win against Burnley.
Score Prediction: 1-2
Leicester vs. Burnley
Leicester is better placed to compete favorably against Burnley in the match. Just a week after the burial of their Chairman, Leicester have a better chance of proving their send-off victory to their leader who brought the club from the ashes to win the competitive English premier league in the 2015/2016 season. Burnley’s near to dismal performance places them at position 15 just 2 points from the relegation line. Their last 3 games’ losing streak is not going to change against the King Power side. Jamie Vardy is anticipated to be in his best form and will score at least one or two for his side.
Score prediction: 2-0
New Castle United vs. Bournemouth
This fixture brings together two teams with different viewpoints. Newcastle United will be entering the game with the intention of continuing with their second win of the season after securing a 1-0 win against Watford over the weekend. If lucky or rather their improved performance allows them, they will at least move further from the relegation zone considering that it is only a goal difference that separates them from that territory. Consequently, Bournemouth is intending to register a third consecutive away win this season. From the look of things, Bournemouth is performing better at away matches. Hence this proffers them with yet another opportunity to win yet again while condemning Newcastle to relegation on the same note. In their best form this season, at number 8, Newcastle United has little or no chance of defeating them. In the two teams’ head to head fixtures, 5 of the 7 goals scored in their English Premier League fixtures were scored in the 80th minute. Will this weekend happen the same way? Let’s wait and see.
Score Prediction: 1-2
Southampton vs. Watford
At number 8, Watford are favorably placed to perform better as opposed to the 16th placed Southampton who are just one point away from relegation line. This will be a better opportunity for Watford to register its fourth consecutive victory. Coming from a 6-1 trashing by Manchester City over the last weekend, Southampton are not going to work hard to at least take a point home. However thins are not going to be easy for them considering that they are playing against the well-formed Watford who has even surprised premier league giants this season. Wesley Hoedt’s own goal over the weekend shows Southampton’s frustration this season.
Score Prediction: 1-1
Crystal Palace vs. Tottenham Hotspurs
Tottenham are not going to take their grip of the top four just by losing to Crystal Palace. They know a loss for them and a win for Arsenal will lower their 4th position to 5th. This is not something the likes of Harry Kane are going to allow to happen to their team as they travel to Selhurst Park. His midweek 2 goals score when they hosted PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League action is a testament that he is on his best form. On the other hand, Crystal Palace is not a team any team can underrate. At times it has the tendency of frustrating even the big teams. Therefore, Tottenham are going to tread carefully as they intend to walk with 3 points.
Score Prediction: 1-2
Liverpool vs. Fulham
This fixture will be the opening game for the Sunday action as Liverpool welcomes Fulham to Anfield. The Reds have no intention of conceding any defeat this season and end their unbeaten record. Just 2 points away from number one and just a goal difference from position two, maybe this weekend will change things around. Their prayer is that they win and Manchester City loses to Manchester United while Chelsea draws or loses to Everton. If those wishes come through, then, by Sunday they will be seated comfortably at the top of the EPL table. But maybe such wishes might turn around to bite them and end their unbeaten record. If history holds true for Liverpool, then this will be their 9th home and all games win against promoted Premier League teams. Daniel Sturridge has had a hand in Liverpool’s five goals in Liverpool’s last EPL matches against Fulham. He has scored four and assisted in one. On the other hand, if lucky be on their side, Fulham will be looking at their second league win at Anfield. Their last win against the Merseyside was on May 2012 at Anfield.
Score Prediction: 3-1
Chelsea vs. Everton
At Stamford Bridge, the Blues will always be Blues. The Blues will be welcoming Everton with an intention of defeating them and extend their unbeaten record a third successive premier League victory this season. Everton, on the other hand, shall be travelling to Stamford Bridge fully aware that this can be their fifth victory from six top-flight matches. In their last 23 premier league matches, Chelsea stands unbeaten (W3 D10). The last time Everton beat Chelsea was in November 1994 (1-0). For Maurizio Sarri, a win this weekend will set a new record as the longest EPL unbeaten record for a head coach or manager. For Everton, this fixture provides them with a better opportunity to improve on their games played on Sundays. In their last 13 such fixtures, they have lost 11 of them while drawing twice.
Score Prediction: 2-0
Arsenal vs. Wolves
The Emirates Stadium will be a slaughtering house this weekend as the Gunners host Wolverhampton Wanderers. This comes a week after Arsenal had held the tougher Liverpool to a 1-1 draw. Unai Emery’s side is aware of their intention of reclaiming their Arsenal back. Nothing can stop them from doing so this weekend. They come to the game full aware of their performance against the Europa League side Sporting Lisbon. In their best form after a long wait, Arsenal is intending to trash Wolves who have been on a losing streak. With the likes of Alexandre Lacazette, Ozil, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, and Bernd Leno securing the goalpost, the current Arsenal is a hard nut for the Wolves to Crack.
Score Prediction: 2-1
Manchester City vs. Manchester United
What a way to close the English Premier League fixture for matchday 12. The Manchester derby will see the two teams locking horns with each having a different target to meet. For Manchester City, their intention is to retain their unbeaten record so far as well as retaining the first position. On the other hand, Manchester United who started the season dismally has improved. This weekend will ascertain whether they improved performance will hold still. Manchester United’s poor performance against Sergio Aguero is something we will be looking at come this Sunday. Manchester City will be going to the game confidently having humbled Shakhtar Donestk to a 6-1 score in their Champions League on Wednesday night and their 6-0 demolishing of Southampton over the last weekend. Manchester United on the other hand won their Champions League game on Wednesday night against Juventus to a thrilling 2-1 score. Come Sunday night, each team will be trying to outdo each other. Will Manchester United stop the fired Manchester United? This will be determined on Sunday night at the Etihad Stadium.
Score prediction: 3-1
