Last Sunday both results were correct. Here are reviews for the this Sunday’s Premier League fixtures:
Sunderland v Norwich 13:30
A tough one to call. At home Sunderland should win it, although they have just 2 points from the last 6 games and cannot afford a run in like last season where they could not muster a solitary win from the last 8 EPL matches.
Norwich are in poor form too, only having registered one victory in 12 matches. The Canaries do not score many goals and way from home it will be difficult.
Sunderland 2 Norwich City 1
Tottenham Hotspur v Fulham 15:00
Back at White Hart Lane the jitters are being felt as Arsenal and Chelsea keep the pressure on for the final finishing positions. Spurs looked certain to beat Liverpool last week until mistakes saw a likely win turn to a late defeat. Tottenham need a steadying win and although the history books suggest Fulham don’t win away often, they will be looking to take advantage of a 2 week rest while their counterparts have just come back on Thursday night from a draining Europa League tie with Inter Milan that went for 120 minutes. One man who will not be so drained is Gareth Bale, who of course missed that match through suspension and this could work well considering what a talisman the Welsh wonder has been lately.
Tottenham Hotspur 2 Fulham 1
Chelsea v West Ham 16:00
The Stamford Bridge faithful will be looking forward to this match as it looks on the surface to be an opportunity for a routine win against the relegation-threatened Hammers. That said, West Ham have been in good form, winning 2 of their last 4. However, despite beating Stoke away, WHUFC’s away record is pants. Add to that the fact that he Hammers have not won successive matches in the Premier League since February-March 2011, this one has Blues all over it.
Chelsea 4 West Ham 0
Wigan v Newcastle 16:00
Who knows what Wigan will do from week to week. Now, with one eye on their FA Cup semi-final against Milwall they could go either way until then. Wigan have a great record against Newcastle at home but Newcastle are having a great run, having won 4 of their last 6.
That said, with the Magpies having kept just the one clean sheet in the last 11 matches and a very poor away record this season this one looks likely to go the way of Wigan although a draw may be the most likely result.
