Premier League Predictions Gameweek 11

As we are entering game week 11 there are some interesting fixtures to look ahead to. Game of the weekend is undoubtedly the North London Derby, with Arsenal hosting Tottenham at the Emirates Stadium.

  • Bournemouth v Sunderland

Bournemouth welcome league the bottom team Sunderland to Dean Court. The home side will be wanting to bounce back from a rather surprising home defeat against Middlesbrough in the last round. They could not have wished for a better game to do so, with the prospect of facing a Sunderland team that look beaten already. Many have suggested that Sunderland are a worse team than Aston Villa last season. The most they could hope for is a draw.

Our prediction 3-0

  • Burnley v Crystal Palace

Burnley managed to frustrate Manchester United even more in the last round, holding United to a draw at Old Trafford. They have proved a tough team to beat at home, and currently find themselves in 14th place in the league. Crystal Palace have been short of form lately and have lost three games in a row in the league. After a promising Palace start, this will be a tough encounter that is likely to end with a draw or a single goal either side.

Our prediction 2-1

  • Man City Middlesbrough

Man City finally found their way back to form, with an impressive 4-0 thumping of West Brom at the Ethiad last weeken. Not to mention the 3-1 home victory against Barcelona in the Champions League. Will Guardiola bring consistency to City's play? That remains to be seen. Middlesbrough will be coming to visit with high confidence following a surprise away win to Bournemouth in the last round and a 0-0 draw against Arsenal before that. However, City are likely too big for them to handle.

Our prediction 3-1

  • West Ham v Stoke

West Ham have been disappointing this season, and the move to London Stadium has not been what the fans were hoping for, following a strong finish to last season's campaign. A defeat to Everton, ended their three game unbeaten run abruptly. Will they find their way back to form? That remains to be seen, but Stoke will surely not be pushovers in this fixture. Stoke are unbeaten in the last 5 games, and have collected an impressive 11 points with a good run that includes three wins in a row. The suspension of Arnautovic will surely have a big impact on Stoke. This fixture has the potential to be one of the most entertaining games of the weekend.

Our prediction 3-3

  • Chelsea v Everton

Since their 3-0 defeat against Arsenal, Chelsea have been in good form, winning four games in a row. It looks like Antonio Conte is making his mark on the team, and rather surprisingly Victor Moses has found himself getting a lot of playing time. Hazard also seems to have found new joy under the Italian's stewardship. Everton however have been enjoying the best of form lately, with only one win (in the last round) from the last five fixtures. As always Lukaku will be on a mission to prove his former employees wrong by scoring against them. A clash of two interesting manager in both Conte and Koeman. It is set up for a tight fixture. Our prediction 1-1

  • Arsenal v Spurs

The North London Derby is undoubtedly the biggest game this round. Arsenal have been in fantastic form lately, winning 4 out of the last 5 in the league. Özil showed what a world class player he is by grabbing the late winner against Ludogorets in the Champions League midweek. Spurs have been having trouble finding the net with the absence of Harry Kane who is out with an injury since mid September. Tottenham suffered a tough defeat against Leverkusen at home in the CL midweek and are visiting their rivals off the back of three draws in a row in the league. Spurs will be looking for other players to turn on the style and find the net, otherwise they could be in for a bad defeat against their in form arch rivals.

Our prediction 3-1

  • Hull v Southampton

With five league defeats in a row, things do not look good for Hull City, who are currently in the relegation zone. They will face a tough task of playing Southampton, who will be coming to visit with bags of confidence following their impressive home win against Inter in the Europa League on Thursday night. With Hull having the worst defensive record in the league, it is difficult to imagine that they will come away with anything in this game. Southampton will be wanting to build on their recent results, and keep pushing for a Europa League place.

Our prediction 0-2

  • Liverpool v Watford

Liverpool have been enjoying a good run lately, and will surely be eager to revenge the 3-0 defeat suffered to Watford last season. With no European football during the week, Liverpool are surely better rested than in the previous campaign. With 4 wins in the last 5 games, they need to keep winning if they are going to stay alongside Man City and Arsenal. Watford will certainly be looking for another upset, and find themselves in an impressive 7th place in the league at the moment, and are undefeated in the last 4 games in the league. With Firmino and Coutinho in such form at the moment, it is however hard to see anyone stopping them.

Our prediction 3-1

  • Swansea v Man Utd

Swansea welcome Manchester United, and will be looking to secure their first win since opening day. They find themselves in big trouble with 5 points to safety at this stage of the season, a gap that seems to be increasing every week. Whether new manager Bob Bradley manages to inspire the Swans to yet another upset against United remains to be seen. They can however be encouraged by the fact that United have been struggling to find the net lately, and the fact that 3 out of the last 4 meetings of these sides have ended with a 2-1 Swansea win. United need to quickly forget their Europa League disappointment against Fenerbahce midweek, if they are to get anything out of this game. Zlatan is currently enduring the worst goal drought of his professional career, failing to find the net 6 league games in a row. Wayne Rooney scored United's only goal against Fenerbahce, and he will be looking to keep that momentum.

Our prediction 1-1

  • Leicester v West Brom

Can Champions Leicester replicate their good Champions League form in the League? That is still the question on everyone's lips. They have now been dealt another blow with Kasper Schmeichel's broken hand mid week against FC Copenhagen, and is now set for considerable time on the sidelines. WBA are drifting dangerously near the relegation zone at the moment, and need to find more points. With 5 out of 10 points coming way from home, they will at least be hoping for a draw away to Leicester. The bottom half of the league is very tight at the moment, with only 3 points separating Southampton in 9th and West Ham in 17th. A win is therefore even more important to both teams, to stay on track. Somehow it is difficult to believe that Leicester will let go of the opportunity to jump start their season.

Our prediction 1-0
