Here are the week 4 Premier League predictions. ….
Sat, 29th August 12:45
Newcastle United 1-1 Arsenal
The first kick off again features Newcastle United, this time up against Arsenal at St James’ Park. What with the Magpies still searching for their first win, things are not made any easier with the visit of the Gunners. They will be proud of holding Manchester United away though and I predict another draw this time around despite what the bookies say. I got this one right last week against all odds, by the way!
Go for the draw.
Sat, 29th August 15:00
Aston Villa 2-1 Sunderland
Things at Villa have been very inconsistent but Sunderland are even more unpredictable. That said, Villa Park is a hard place to go to and the home side should probably just squeeze this one.
Villa to win.
Bournemouth 1-2 Leicester
The Foxes visit the seaside and if they can continue their form as shown away at Spurs they should be able to grab at least a share of the points here. However, the Cherries had their historic first top-fight win and will be buoyant at home. That said, West Ham had a shocker and invited the win. This time around I think Leicester should just prevail.
Foxes to win.
Chelsea 3-1 Crystal Palace
Hard to see Chelsea not winning again, despite missing John Terry at the back after his sending off last week. Palace have done so well to get 6 points already even though they have faced good teams. Go for a Chelsea home win.
Liverpool 4-1 West Ham
How on earth did the Hammers beat Arsenal in the opener? Since then they have been awful and I can see them being well beaten here by a Liverpool team playing well.
Go for the Liverpool win at Anfield.
Manchester City 4-0 Watford
The newcomers visit the mega rich table toppers and there is only one result going to happen here unless something crazy happens. I am predicting a City win.
Stoke City 2-2 West Bromwich Albion
The Potters are looking solid at the moment and Albion really need their maiden win of the season. This could be a very tight affair with two closely matched teams. The Berahino saga looks to be over now and particularly if he plays the Baggies will improve.
Should Stoke win, they could have a really good season ahead but I feel a draw coming on.
Tottenham 3-2 Everton 17:30
Spurs keep getting ahead and letting their opposition get back into the game this season and Pochettino has to sort that out. That has let my tips down over the last few weeks. Sorry folks. However, winless Spurs simply must break out of that immediately or their season is looking very poor. Only 2 points and they could have had 6 easily. That’s not top four material. Everton on the other hand are looking pretty good and this game should be a close one.
Tottenham to shade it.
Sunday 30th August
Southampton 3-1 Norwich 13:30
The Saints crashed out of the Europa League on Thursday and no doubt will be fully focused on this match. Could be a good thing. Norwich are looking like a decent team, exceeding most punters’ expectations, but they will probably find it tough going at St Mary’s.
The tip is for a convincing home win.
Swansea 2-1 Man United 16:00
Both Swansea and Manchester United are undefeated in the Premier League so far. With United sealing Champions League football during the week, they could just take their foot off the pedal here and succumb to some Swansea vigour.
It’s a risk but I think that Swansea will beat United. There, I said it.
That’s the Premier League Predictions for Week 4 in the EPL.
Good luck – @edcashmoretips
