Premier League Predictions - Week 25

A number of shocking results last week, as well as a stunning Newcastle United comeback, meant that we had one of our lowest scoring weeks ever here on 21.co.uk’s Premier League Predictions. Last week TM won by a score of just 2-1 to make the total scores 14-10 to MG, can TM close the gap with a superb performance in a gameweek featuring Leicester City Vs Chelsea, Manchester United Vs Wolves and Tottenham Hotspur Vs Manchester City? A question that we’ve got our eyes on is, which England striker can break into the team going into Euro 2020? You can find out by checking out our Euro 2020 Tips but for now, let’s get straight into our Premier League Predictions for Week 25.

Leicester City Vs Chelsea - Saturday 1st February (12:30)

Overview

After losing out in the League Cup semi-finals to Aston Villa in mid-week, Leicester City will be looking to focus on the league and cement a Champions League place. They are already 14 points ahead of 5th placed Manchester United but two defeats in their last three might have fans beginning to look over their shoulders. If they can beat Chelsea here they would extend the gap between themselves and 4th place to 11 points and would put them well on their way to another year in the Champions League. Chelsea on the other hand, just need to start converting their chances, otherwise, they can kiss the Champions League goodbye.

MG’s Prediction

Since their 4-0 defeat to Liverpool, the Foxes haven’t looked the same. They’ve convincingly beaten Newcastle and West Ham but both were dreadful and this year they’ve failed to beat Aston Villa home and away, Burnley and Southampton, which is fine over a sustained period but in less than a month, that’s poor. However, Chelsea couldn’t finish their dinner if they had help, so who knows what could happen here.

Under 2.5 Goals - 6/5

TM‘s Prediction

Leicester have been a little underwhelming recently, but if Vardy’s fit and fighting he’ll be a persistent threat. Chelsea are likely to be without Tammy Abraham, so they could be blunted. Crucially Brendan Rodgers is undefeated against London teams as Leicester boss, and they’ve won seven of the ten.

Leicester to Win - 6/4

Bournemouth Vs Aston Villa - Saturday 1st February (15:00)

If getting to a Cup Final doesn’t motivate you, we’re not sure what will. Both of these sides should have a bit more confidence than they had last time out which means that we could actually see a good game here. This could be a real relegation six-pointer with only two points separating the sides and all the teams around them picking up points, neither side can afford to lose here.

TM‘s Prediction

Bournemouth might have remembered how to win in their most recent match against Brighton, but they still have huge issues in my opinion. Aston Villa have had a relatively good January across all competitions, so I can see them edging it.

Aston Villa to Win - 12/5

MG’s Prediction

Weirdly enough Villa have looked a completely different team in the league to what they were in the Cup. Meanwhile, Bournemouth scrapped for a win against Norwich last time out and we all know that Premier League wins are like buses, you wait years for one and two come in a short space of time.

Bournemouth to win to nil - 51/20

Crystal Palace Vs Sheffield United - Saturday 1st February (15:00)

Overview

When it comes down to it. Football is a results business and although Sheffield United and Crystal Palace aren’t the most exciting teams to watch and they’ve both been on poor runs, they’re still within touching distance of a Europa League spot. Only Liverpool have conceded less goals than Sheffield United who have their superb backline to thank for a lot of their success. Meanwhile, Palace are simply great at grinding out results and both sides draw more often than they win.

MG’s Prediction

This won’t be a high scoring affair, I think we all know that. I’d definitely go for a draw or a marginal victory. However, when I saw this bet, I knew that I had to take it.

Under 1.5 Goals - 29/20

TM‘s Prediction

Crystal Palace have some big names in line to return, with Luka Milivojevic’s expired suspension possibly being one of the most crucial. Sander Berge could be an interesting new signing for Sheffield United, but I can see this one finishing level.

Draw - 21/10

Liverpool Vs Southampton - Saturday 1st February (15:00)

Overview

After a tough double gameweek last time out, Liverpool have another tough task against in-form Southampton who are the third most in-form team in the league across the last 12 matches, picking up 7 wins and losing only three times. However, in that time Liverpool have picked up 36 points and conceded only six goals during that time. The Saints have won their last four on the road and but you would expect that to end here.

TM‘s Prediction

Liverpool are without a couple of players, in the form of Sadio Mane and James Milner, but they’ll still be the winners in my eyes. Southampton’s Danny Ings will have a point to prove, but I think he’ll come up short.

Liverpool to Win to Zero - 20/21

MG’s Prediction

Now, if anyone picked up on our Fantasy Football Tips they’ll know that I tripled up on Liverpool players for the month despite removing Mane. So, when it comes to Liverpool goals, I’ve been keeping a special eye out. After West Ham, I’d back a small Liverpool goals total here.

Liverpool Goals: 2 - 43/20

Newcastle United Vs Norwich City - Saturday 1st February (15:00)

Overview

Norwich picked up their first win back in the Premier League in the reverse of this fixture as Teemu Pukki grabbed a hat-trick before Jonjo Shelvey scored late on for the Magpies. At that point, Norwich looked like they’d easily stay up and Newcastle looked destined for relegation - how times change, Norwich picked up just six points in 14 games after their win against Manchester City meanwhile Newcastle picked up 21 and now look safe. After draws against Wolves and Everton either side of a win against Chelsea, things are looking up for the Magpies.

MG’s Prediction

When they play defensively, Newcastle are superb but when they need to attack it’s like playing a team from the National League North. However, Norwich aren’t exactly brilliant themselves, this could be anything from 4-4 to 0-0 but either way a Draw is a good bet.

Draw - 12/5

TM‘s Prediction

Newcastle have been pretty stable defensively, but against the Premier League’s “basement boys”, Norwich City, they’re likely to be more focused on attack. This could be counter-productive, as Teemu Pukki is likely to have chances, even if his supply is slightly weakened by the doubts over Emi Buendia and Todd Cantwell. I see a Canaries win here.

Norwich to Win - 23/10

Watford Vs Everton - Saturday 1st February (15:00)

Overview

Here we see two teams that are finally content with their managers after a number of failures in the past. Watford have found strength and dignity in Nigel Pearson whilst Everton are a force under Carlo Ancelotti. However, Everton will have been devastated following their dramatic draw against Newcastle after being 2-0 up with just 40 seconds to go.

TM‘s Prediction

Watford’s injury problems could see them take a more defensive approach, particularly with the news that former-player Richarlison will be available for Everton. The away side will come in relatively positive, but also nervous following their injury-time capitulation against Newcastle, so I think a draw is likely.

Draw - 23/10

MG’s Prediction

I’m very surprised that Carlo Ancelotti hasn’t signed a whole new defence this week after the Newcastle collapse, they were fantastic for 60 minutes, good enough for 33 minutes and then abysmal for about 1 minute and 20 seconds. I think Troy Deeney might bully the Everton defence but I also think that Watford will need to support him a lot more if they’re going to stay up, starting here.

Gerard Deulofeu to score: 13/5

West Ham Vs Brighton - Saturday 1st February (15:00)

Overview

At the start of the season, a lot of people believed that this would be a mid-table clash as West Ham had spent far too much money to go down whilst Brighton would be rejuvenated with the arrival of Graham Potter. Brighton looked like a much-improved side for the first two months of the season but West Ham have been fairly diabolical all season and both are winless in their last four. Which side will pick up the points here?

MG’s Prediction

Because of how inconsistent West Ham have been against teams at the bottom of the league, this is tough to call. If West Ham are at their best then I personally believe that they’ll win and as I’ve previously said, I don’t rate Graham Potters Brighton. So...

West Ham to win - 31/20

TM‘s Prediction

This isn’t going to be the prettiest match of the weekend, but what can you expect with both of them battling relegation? West Ham might edge it with home advantage, but I can see just a single goal being the difference.

Under 1.5 Goals - 13/5

Manchester United Vs Wolves - Saturday 1st February (17:30)

Overview

Manchester United looked like their old selves in mid-week. However, at the same time, Manchester City simply needed to avoid a 2 goal defeat to progress to the Cup Final. That being said, there were positives for Man United who come up against a Wolves side who are level on points with them for the Europa League spot. Wolves are tough to beat but have drawn far too many games for their liking.

TM‘s Prediction

Manchester United earned a very good win in the FA Cup, and then were eliminated from the League Cup despite winning at the Etihad. Signing Bruno Fernandes is another positive step, but I just have a feeling that Wolves will spoil the mood around Old Trafford.

Wolves to Win - 5/2

MG’s Prediction

“Wolves are tough to beat but have drawn far too many games for their liking” - That sums up what I wanted to say, I’ll be shocked if either side leaves Old Trafford with three points, I just can’t decide if this is going to end 1-1 or 2-2. So if I were you, I’d back Draw with Goals at 29/10 but as I’m not...

Exact Score: 2-2 - 12/1

Burnley Vs Arsenal - Sunday 2nd February (14:00)

Overview

Back to back wins have seen Burnley shoot up the Premier League table to 13th which means they are now just four points off 5th. This is truly a bizarre season in the Premier League and that is demonstrated by their opponents Arsenal, it’s been a dreadful season for the Gunners but only Manchester City and Liverpool have tasted defeat less than Mikel Arteta’s side. Burnley don’t tend to draw whilst it’s all Arsenal have drawn 50% of their league games, a tough one to call.

MG’s Prediction

Arsenal fans will be delighted to see Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang return to the side following his three-game suspension. However, they scored five goals in three games when he was out and conceded four. So they’ll still concede goals but I expect PEA to be the difference.

Arsenal to win & BTTS: 51/20

TM‘s Prediction

Burnley’s wins over Manchester United and Leicester couldn’t have come at a better time, as they’ve now got some breathing space between themselves and the drop zone. For Arsenal, a run of draws is still an improvement, but they need to make the step up to victories. I think they can do so at Turf Moor.

Arsenal to Win - Evens

Tottenham Hotspur Vs Manchester City - Sunday 2nd February (16:30)

Overview

Earlier in the season, Spurs picked up what looked like a fantastic point at the Etihad. That point hasn’t turned out to be as good as they may have imagined but if Spurs can avoid defeat here. Jose Mourinho will be a very happy man. We would imagine this game might suit Spurs as it will allow Son and Lucas to use their pace on the counter-attack. However, if they can’t put the ball in the net, there could be some issues.

TM‘s Prediction

Tottenham’s defensive frailties look set to continue, although they might have slightly more positives on the attacking front, with Steven Bergwijn a good coup in my opinion. Meanwhile Manchester City are playing some free-flowing football as per usual, so I think there will be goals.

Over 3.5 Goals - 5/4

MG’s Prediction

I actually think Jose Mourinho and Spurs are a good fit but it simply hasn’t worked for them so far. I thought he might have been backed in the January window but they’ve made just one signing. They ended their poor run with a win over Norwich but Tottenham are desperate for wins, not drama.

Exact Score: 1-2 - 15/2
