Premier League Predictions Gameweek 10

After the midweek fixtures in the EFL Cup, the Premier League is now back with round 10 of the season. We take a look at the next fixtures and make the predictions for the coming round. Give us your view in the comments section of the post.

  • Sunderland vs Arsenal

Even with Jermaine Defoe providing plenty upfront, Premier League strugglers Sunderland seem to have no chance against an Arsenal team that is in form at the moment. There is no doubt that David Moyes is going to have a tough time keeping Sunderland up this season, and this fixture is not going to be an easy one. Arsenal will look to keep up with the rest of the teams at the top of the table, and Sunderland looks like a team that could be as good as relegated in January.

Our prediction 1-4.

  • Man Utd vs Burnley

After a midweek derby victory against rivals Manchester City, Manchester United will surely take the confidence into the next round, although they faced a much changed City side they will be boosted by the result. Mourinho keeps being criticized for the style of play, and we will have to see if anything changes against Burnley at home, whom United should have no trouble beating. With such lack of goals lately we cannot see any fireworks going off at Old Trafford just yet. With Zlatan's current goal drought, Man U might have to look for young Rashford to provide the spark that is needed up front.

Our prediction 1-0.

  • Middlesbrough vs Bournemouth

After a positive start Middlesbrough have struggled to find the net lately, but an uplifting 0-0 draw against Arsenal away might give them confidence going into this fixture at home. Bournemouth have been performing well lately and are coming off a 0-0 draw against Tottenham at home. This may be a tight one, and it could come down to individual mistakes on either side.

Our prediction 2-2.

  • Spurs vs Leicester

Defending champions Leicester City have had a disappointing start to their title defense. A win away at White Hart Lane could be the confidence booster they need to get back to the fantastic form they showed last season. However, Spurs are most likely frustrated after a 0-0 draw against Bournemouth and will likely come at Leicester full throttle from the first minute. It is difficult to see Spurs dropping points again, having played well last season and this season so far.

Our prediction 3-1.

  • Watford vs Hull

Watford have been in good form lately and have picked up 8 points in the last 5 games. The same cannot be said about Hull City, who are coming to visit Vicarage Road on a 5 game losing streak in the Premier League. Despite the EFL Cup win away at Bristol City, they seem doomed to yet another defeat having conceded 19 goals and just 3 scored in the last 5 PL fixtures.

Our prediction 2-0.

  • West Brom vs Man City

When it looked as if Man City were going to run away from the rest of the pack in PL, poor form has brought them back to the ground again. Having dropped 7 points in the last 3 PL games, adding a painful 1-0 defeat at Old Trafford midweek, Man City are now feeling the pressure as the rest are catching up. Still on top of the league due to better goal difference than Arsenal and Liverpool, they now need to win away against a very physical West Brom team. With WBA having failed to win in their last 4 PL games, they too need points in order to get back into the top half.

Our prediction 1-2.

  • Crystal Palace vs Liverpool

After a great start to their league campaign, Alan Pardew's men host in form Liverpool on the back of two straight PL defeats and a draw. Christian Benteke will surely be desperate to do one over on his former teammates, and show them his qualities. However, we cannot see Crystal Palace coming away with more than a draw in this one, that is if everything goes to plan and they manage to exploit Liverpool's main weakness, set play. Liverpool fielded a completely new team against Tottenham, making 11 changes in the EFL Cup, where many youngsters got the chance to impress. With Daniel Sturridge bagging 2 goals, he is surely a candidate to start, although it is difficult to see him pushing the in-form Firmino to the bench.

Our prediction 1-3

  • Everton vs West Ham

Everton host West Ham at Goodison Park, in a game where the teams form is heading in different directions. Everton enjoyed a very fresh start to the campaign under Koeman, and played some good football, picking up several points in the process. They have however been shy of form lately, and have 2 defeats and 2 draws in their last 4 PL games. They will have the difficult task of breaking down West Ham, who at the start of the campaign, failed to emulate the good form they showed during last season. West Ham have however been finding their old form lately, coming off a great home win against Chelsea in the EFL Cup, and picking up two 1-0 wins in a row in the Premier League. This could be the most entertaining match of the round, with two teams that have the ability to score goals on their day.

Our prediction 3-3.

  • Southampton vs Chelsea

The Saints welcome Chelsea and do so after a 5 game unbeaten streak in the Premier League. Claude Puel seems to be making his mark on the team after a sluggish start to the campaign, and this will certainly not be an easy game for Chelsea. The defeat against West Ham in the EFL Cup was certainly a disappointment for Conte's men, and they will be looking to get a 4th straight Premier League win, following an inconsistent start. Despite seeing the potential for an upset with a Southampton win, it is more likely that Chelsea will come away with the win here.

Our prediction 1-2.

  • Stoke vs Swansea

In the last game of the round, we see what is perhaps an early relegation battle fixture when Stoke City host Swansea at home. Stoke will be encouraged by the fact that they have picked up 2 wins in a row, and will be looking to add further misery to Swansea's poor run of form. Swansea have their work cut out for them, having only recorded a win in the first round of the season against Burnley. Having only scored 8 goals in the first 9 games, Swansea may find themselves drawing the short stick again.

Our prediction 2-0.
