Premier League Tips

Last week’s Premier League Predictions was as tight as they come with MG and JG coming to a 2-2 draw and their profit from those wins was only 25p apart as Liverpool’s 3-2 victory over West Ham was exactly what MG needed to clinch victory in week 27 and lead 16-11 in the seasons Premier League Predictions. As it stands MG will go on to report on our Euro 2020 tips starting in June! With just four more wins needed to secure victory for MG, we get started with Norwich City Vs Leicester City.

Norwich City Vs Leicester City - Friday 28th February (20:00)

Overview

The worst home record in the league taking on the third-best away record would state that this should be a foregone conclusion. Then again, Norwich did beat Man City at home earlier in the season and have gotten a result in four of their last eight games so Daniel Farke’s side will be confident that they won’t go down without a fight at Carrow Road. However, if you asked Jamie Vardy for one game to end his drought and he couldn’t pick Arsenal, he’d probably want to play at Carrow Road.

MG’s Prediction

The way these two teams are playing at the moment will have more of a say in how this game will turn out than their positions in the table. There will be goals but I’d bet there will be less than 3.

Under 2.5 Goals: 6/5

TM’s Prediction

I know I need to start picking up wins, rather like Norwich, but I’m going with something of a surprise prediction to open the weekend. Norwich contained Liverpool for long periods, and with Leicester struggling for goals I can see a stalemate.

Draw - 3/1

Brighton & Hove Albion Vs Crystal Palace - Saturday 29th February (12:30)

Overview

Before their 1-0 win against Newcastle, Crystal Palace were the out-of-form team in England. However, they played well and if they play similarly this weekend, they stand a chance of beating a Brighton side who have won one of their last 12 games. Brighton are difficult to beat at the Amex and have only lost three games there all season to Sheffield United, Leicester City and Southampton. Meanwhile, Palace have just three away wins all season.

TM’s Prediction

Two draws and two Brighton wins of the five Premier League meetings so far suggests the Seagulls may get the better of the Eagles, particularly with Crystal Palace looking unsure of themselves. A home win in my eyes.

Brighton to Win - 11/10

MG’s Prediction

I can’t see this one being blessed with many goals either if I’m honest. However, if Brighton score early they are capable of getting 2 or 3. I’ll back the half-time score here.

Half Time: Draw - Evens

AFC Bournemouth Vs Chelsea - Saturday 29th February (15:00)

Overview

Bournemouth won the reverse fixture earlier in the season which was their only win in the space of 12 games. This time they’re coming off two back-to-back away defeats but they have won their last two home games. Meanwhile, Chelsea are coming off the back of a demolition from Bayern Munich in the Champions League so both of these sides could do with a win here.

MG’s Prediction

Bournemouth won the previous fixture at Stamford Bridge 1-0. I think they’ll be a bit more confident going into this game knowing that they can match Chelsea who may be out for retribution, although that will likely leave them open at the back.

Double Chance: Bournemouth or Draw: 11/10

TM’s Prediction

I think Chelsea will start this one well, given that they’ve largely been better away from Stamford Bridge. I’m not ruling out a Bournemouth fightback, but the Blues will be ahead at the break.

Chelsea to Win 1st Half - 5/4

Newcastle United Vs Burnley - Saturday 29th February (15:00)

Overview

The last time Newcastle scored in 90 minutes of Premier League football was on the 11th January when they played Wolves, since then they have scored three goals, two in the 94th minute and one in the 95th minute, they also haven’t scored in their last three. Burnley are in form and will be the favourites if they can break down the stubborn Magpies defence.

TM’s Prediction

I could sum this up in five words; this will be a draw. Newcastle haven’t been great recently, and in similar situations they’ve parked the bus, while Burnley will make considered ventures forward but are likely to be bested by Martin Dubravka.

Draw - 43/20

MG’s Prediction

I genuinely struggle to think where Newcastle are going to pick up their next three points despite a favourable run. Burnley are in-form at the moment and for them to pick up a win at St James’ Park is simply too good to ignore.

Burnley to win: 19/10

West Ham United Vs Southampton - Saturday 29th February (15:00)

Overview

After falling into the relegation zone, West Ham are 11 games away from peril. With their wage budget, relegation could be catastrophic for the Hammers. However, David Moyes has a good chance of keeping them up despite their fixtures, they still have Newcastle, Burnley, Norwich, Watford and Aston Villa to play in their final six games, so if they can remain within touching distance, you would back them to survive. However, Southampton are a team that can cause problems and if West Ham lose here, they might be 6-9 points behind before they play Newcastle.

TM’s Prediction

West Ham haven’t been magnificent by any standard, but they can always cling to the fact that they’ve had some tough fixtures. They’ll get a goal here, but Southampton certainly have the ability to edge them, and I think that’s what will happen here.

Southampton Win & Over 2.5 Goals - 53/20

MG’s Prediction

David Moyes’ side need a win here but considering they’ve not won in their last four home games. I don’t see that changing here. I think Southampton will get something here but I’m struggling to decide whether they will win or draw, I’ll go for the draw.

Draw: 51/20

Watford Vs Liverpool - Saturday 29th February (17:30)

Overview

Liverpool have only dropped points once this season, which was a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford so it is perhaps a surprise to see them as high as 10/23 to pick up the win against out-of-form Watford who are without a win their last six. Watford have scored just 13 home goals all season while Liverpool have conceded just 6 on the road, the Hornets could be in for a long evening on Saturday.

MG’s Prediction

I actually think Nigel Pearsons side could get something against Liverpool. However, I also think they could get battered. It’s a heart vs head situation for me. So I’ll go somewhere in the middle.

Liverpool to win by 2 goals: 3/1

TM‘s Prediction

I’ve been impressed with Watford since Nigel Pearson came in, and on their day they’re a side that can cause issues for any side. We know how outstanding Liverpool have been, but I’ll go slightly rogue and back an upset.

Double Chance: Watford or Draw - 37/20

Everton Vs Manchester United - Sunday 1st March (14:00)

Overview

Since Carlo Ancelotti took charge of Everton, Goodison Park has become a very difficult place to play, they have beaten Burnley, Brighton and Crystal Palace and drawn with Newcastle despite the Magpies being dominated for 94 minutes. However, Manchester United are also going through a bit of a resurgence and are unbeaten in their last six in all competitions, which includes wins over Chelsea and Manchester City. So, on paper, this should be a very even game.

TM’s Prediction

I’m still not convinced about either of these two sides, despite the fact that both have had some good results and performances recently, and I can see them cancelling each other out here.

Draw - 47/20

MG’s Prediction

I think these two sides are evenly matched and that is demonstrated in the odds. I’m tempted to go for an Everton win but I think United will grasp a draw here. Then again, I always go for draws, so I’ll switch up the scene here.

Richarlison to score anytime: 7/4

Tottenham Hotspur Vs Wolves - Sunday 1st March (14:00)

Overview

Results have improved since Jose Mourinho returned to London, that much is evident. However, with their wounded frontline, the already defensive mindset of Mourinho has to be concerned. Their only two goalscorers have picked up bad injuries and he hasn’t had the backing to replace them, Wolves will fancy their chances especially after their Europa League triumph.

MG’s Prediction

With Tottenham’s injury crisis, I can easily see this game being a 1-0 to Wolves or a 0-0 draw depending on how Mourinho sets up. I think this could be a 1-1 draw but I’ll go for the safe option here.

Spurs goals: 1 - 27/20

TM‘s Prediction

Tottenham still have the potential to cause issues even with their stunted attack, but Wolves have recently been returning to the kind of performances that we saw last season. I’ll go with a goals prediction, while balancing on this fence.

Over 2.5 Goals - 6/5

Two games have been postponed this weekend due to the FA Cup fifth round and the EFL Cup finals, so Aston Villa, Manchester City, Arsenal and Sheffield United are without a game in gameweek 28.
