Sunday sees four absolute screamers take place with struggling to score Tottenham taking on in-form Newcastle. Relegation zone Sunderland take on under-achieving Man City. 1st place Arsenal take on 8th place Man Utd. Out-of-form Swansea host Stoke who are now playing football instead of rugby. The weekend should tell us a lot about the teams in the Premier League. Can Manchester United finally pull off a big win in the league? Will Arsenal continue their great form?Can Sunderland shock City? Can City continue their recent form to enter a Champions League spot? Can Tottenham score a goal from anywhere other than the penalty spot? Can Newcastle continue their great run? Can Swansea bounce back from Sunday’s Welsh derby? Can Stoke continue playing football on the ground? Here’s my score predictions:
- Tottenham 1-1 Newcastle
- Sunderland 1-4 Man City
- Man Utd 1-3 Arsenal
- Swansea 2-2 Stoke
Tottenham vs Newcastle will definitely be a close one. Tottenham are struggling for goals at White Hart Lane but are still looking solid defensively. Newcastle on the other hand look good on the attack and defensively. If it was at St. James’ Park, I would predict a Newcastle win but as Tottenham are at home, I predict a 1-1 draw.
Sunderland are looking better under Poyet than they did under Di Canio but I think that Manchester City will still be too good for them. City have started to look really good under Pellegrini, even though they aren’t yet in a Champions League spot, I still think they’ll win, I predict a 4-1 City win.
Manchester United may be at home but they look like a very average team this season with a few world-class players. Arsenal on the other hand look like this could be their year. Not an easy one to call but I still predict a 3-1 win to Arsenal who look astonishingly good at the moment. I must however note that I think Van Persie will score United’s goal.
Swansea look out of form and Stoke look in-form. That probably levels up the playing field. Its a close one to call and it could go either way but I think it’ll go neither way with a 2-2 draw at the Liberty Stadium.
All in all, an immense day of football to round off what should be an immense weekend of football, whatever happens, Arsenal will finish top and Sunderland and Crystal Palace will stay in the relegation zone, the rest can all change.
