Here are your EPL Week 5 Predictions. Betmeister (BM) is back on form and has overtaken Little Sidekick (LS) as we go head to head with football predictions throughout the 2013-14 English Premier League football season. Lawro picked up some good points and remains the leader.
EPL Week 4 predictions saw BM pick up 5 correct results including exact scores on Sunderland 1-3 Arsenal and Spurs 2-0 Norwich. LS picked up 4 correct results.
Norwich v Aston Villa betting preview
Two teams in need of points, Norwich and Villa will both fancy their chances here. We are divided both ways but Norwich at home should be strong and Villa have struggled since the season opener.
Liverpool v Southampton betting preview
Top dogs Liverpool are due a loss at some point but we agree that at Anfield they should come out on top with the Kop behind them. Southampton are decent and would be worth a few quid on getting something out of this match though.
Newcastle v Hull betting preview
Newcastle can continue their good start to the season here and make things hard for Hull. Sorry, Hull City Tigers. They would do well to hold the Magpies away which is what LS thinks will happen in a goalless affair.
West Brom v Sunderland betting preview
The Baggies and Black Cats are propping up the table with the poorest of records and still winless after 4 games. LS reckons they’ll both remain winless while BM says West Brom will grab all 3 points at The Hawthorns.
West Ham v Everton betting preview
Evertonians will be over the moon with the defeat of Chelsea but when they play away it is often a less intense display and West Ham will be tough. BM says a draw – LS reckons the Hammers to lose on home soil.
Chelsea v Fulham betting preview
A really poor week by Chelsea’s normally high standards. 2 losses in a week. Fulham are not up to getting near them at home though. Even the most optimistic Fulham fan would admit that. Great odds for a Fulham result of any sort though.
Arsenal v Stoke betting preview
The Gunners are flying high and you would expect them to continue on their great run with a comfortable victory over Stoke at The Emirates Stadium. Stoke have quality but their game plan will be to stifle Arsenal’s rhythm. It probably won’t work.
Crystal Palace v Swansea betting preview
Palace are not looking too sharp but LS reckons they are winners here against a potentially tired Swansea after their Europa League Thursday night outing. BM says that the Swans will still have a goal too much for Crystal Palace.
Cardiff v Tottenham betting preview
This is an interesting one. Christian Eriksen showed us last week what he is capable of and appears to be one of the bargains of the season. However, if Cardiff can recreate that incredible atmosphere at home again such as with the win over Man City then anything is possible. I say Spurs will have the quality to get over the line – BM reckons a draw. Either way, we expect a tight contest.
Man City v Man Utd betting preview
The big one of the weekend. Both teams have identical records and the noise is going to be intense – which way it goes nobody knows. We’re split on the result but it has to be said that United were purring in their Champions League midweeker. City had weaker opposition in theirs but this is anyone’s guess.
