Week Predictions & Final Results

So in terms of the predicted scores, I got 1/10 correct scores this week. In terms of match-winner/loser, I managed to predict 6/10 correctly this weekend.

 

Predicted: Crystal Palace 0-3 Tottenham

Result: Crystal Palace 1-2 Tottenham

Ayew - Ward OG, Son

While Spurs have looked so dominant at times this season, they were restricted during the first half as Palace defended well and created their own threatening chances. Vicario was tested twice early on from Edouard and Ayew, while Maddison put Spurs best chance in the first half high and wide on 17 minutes. Richarlison then sent an effort wide soon after, with Edouard's blocked shot the only other real chance of the half. The second period saw Palace again looking the more lively as Edouard just missed Schlupp's cutback. On 53 minutes everything changed as an unfortunate Ward managed to turn the ball into his own net from a Maddison drive. Palace looked to get back into it with Edouard seeing a shot deflected over, and Guehi heading wide from a corner. On 66 minutes it was two as Son was set up by Johnson following excellent play by Maddison. Clyne was let off the hook by VAR when he seemed to handle the ball in the area, and Spurs looked in control from there. In the fourth minute of injury time Ayew's brilliant strike across Vicario got one back, but in the end it was not to be. Spurs have now made their best ever start to a Premier League season as the fanfare for Postecoglou continues.

 

Predicted: Chelsea 2-2 Brentford

Result: Chelsea 0-2 Brentford

Pinnock, Mbeumo

The Bees became the first side in the Premier League era to win their first three games at Stamford Bridge, with Chelsea showing their frailties once again. Pochettino was visibly angry and frustrated at the final whistle, especially as Chelsea started so brightly. Madueke hit the bar early on before Sterling and Cucurella wasted big chances. Against the run of play Brentford managed to take the lead, as in the 58th minute Pinnock got free of Disasi at the far post to score. Frank's side sat deep to maintain their lead and frustrate Chelsea, with the hosts struggling to create anything in the final half an hour of the game. Mbeumo and Yarmolyuk forced saves from Sanchez as Brentford smelt blood, and in the sixth minute of injury time they got their reward. Sanchez went up for a late corner, and the keeper was chasing after Maupay as the Bees broke. The keeper could do little as Maupay played in Mbuemo to score and seal the three points. Pochettino will have soaked in the boos from the home fans as he looks to drill his players further and ensure they don't allow this to happen again, especially at home. As for Brentford, they have now won four consecutive away London derbies for the first time in their league history.

 

Predicted: Arsenal 4-0 Sheffield United

Result: Arsenal 5-0 Sheffield United

Nketiah x3, Vieira, Tomiyasu

The opening 25 minutes saw Sheffield United put up a huge resistance against Arsenal, keeping the hosts struggling as they doubled up on Saka. Everything changed on 28 minutes when Rice managed to pick out Nketiah, and the striker got away from Trusty with a neat touch before slotting the ball home. It was Arsenal's first attempt on target, and from there the home side settled. Martinelli was a constant threat, forcing a save after a lovely Saka cross. With Arsenal in control, the second came five minutes after the break. Nketiah was on hand to score after Foderingham palmed Saka's inswinging corner into the strikers path. In the 58th minute the attacker had his hattrick as he collected Smith Rowe's pass, turned, and fired a long range effort into the goal. With Arsenal cruising White and Tomiyasu forced saves from Foderingham. In the 88th minute Vieira was on hand to score from the spot after Norwood fouled the Portuguese in the area. In the sixth minute of injury time Arsenal got their fifth, as Tomiyasu bundled the ball in from a corner. Havertz hit the side netting late on when he could have made it six, but all in all a comprehensive result for Arteta's men. Heckingbottom's side meanwhile have plenty to ponder as their return to the top flight continues to disappoint. 

 

Predicted: Bournemouth 1-1 Burnley

Result: Bournemouth 2-1 Burnley

Semenyo, Billing - Taylor

The Cherries secured a huge result here as they managed their first win under Iraola in the Premier League. Bournemouth showed the most attacking threat but poor passing often broke the attacks down. Against the run of play in the 11th minute Burnley took a surprise lead as Gudmundsson's delivery from a corner was only partially cleared by Zabarnyi. O'Shea cushioned a header for Taylor to smash home and send the away fans wild. Tavernier soon put an effort over as Bournemouth look for a route back into the game. On 22 minutes the scores were level as Semenyo robbed Taylor and drove into the area before striking the ball through O'Shea's legs. Mepham had a header tipped over by Trafford before the interval, and the Cherries continue to pile on pressure in the second half. Semenyo had a close range effort saved, but a moment of magic in the 76th minute changed the game. Vitinho lost the ball and Billing managed to lob Trafford from 40 yards. Rodriguez had an effort ruled out by VAR for offside as the game came to a frantic end, and Radu twice had to make saves to ensure the Cherries managed their first win of the season. Burnley meanwhile continue languishing as the step up to the Premier League appears too much for them currently.

 

Predicted: Wolves 2-2 Newcastle

Result: Wolves 2-2 Newcastle

Lemina, Hwang - Wilson x2

A huge point for Wolves as Newcastle showed their European hangover. Cunha had the opening chance for Wolves in this fast paced game, but it was Newcastle who opened the scoring on 22 minutes. Sa had attempted to come through some bodies to collect the ball, but ended up dropping it for Wilson to pounce. His effort was blocked by Toti Gomes, but he acrobatically scored the rebound. Cunha and Neto both forced Pope into saves as Wolves looked to respond, and on 36 minute they got their reward. Pope came for a corner but missed the ball and Lemina was stronger than Tripper to head home. Newcastle had a series of corners, and their final one won a penalty in the fourth minute of first half stoppage time. Hwang was adjudged to have fouled Schar and Wilson dispatched the spot kick. The fans were at fever pitch in the second half as Neto and Cunha caused havoc, but clear-cut openings for either side were limited. In the 71st minute Toti found himself on the right wing, and some silky moves saw him jink the ball one way, then the other, before feeding Hwang. The South Korean cut inside and beat Pope at his near post to the delight of the fans. Neto was taken off with a suspected hamstring injury and the flow of attacks stopped for Wolves. Newcastle had a late chance as Schar head wide from Trippier's cross, and a share of the points was deserved.

 

Predicted: West Ham 1-1 Everton

Result: West Ham 0-1 Everton

Calvert-Lewin

A huge win for Everton as they continue their strong away form. Respects were paid to Kenwright and Sir Bobby Charlton prior to kick off, and from there the match led to a disjointed first half from both sides. As emotions were high, it was in the 23rd minute when the first chance appeared when Paqueta played in Bowen, but his shot went wide. Paqueta was involved again soon later, but a mix up allowed Harrison to break but his shot was saved by Areola. Everton began to grow more and more into the game, and on 51 minutes they got their reward. Branthwaite won the ball from Antonio before playing the ball forward. Harrison then rolled the ball into Calvert-Lewin on the edge of the area for the striker to spin and lose his markers before firing the ball low into the goal. Everton almost got a second when a Branthwaite long ball was flicked on by Calvert-Lewin to release Doucoure, but his effort was saved by Areola. The keeper then tipped McNeil's strike from distance over the bar before West Ham saw a penalty appeal waved away after the ball had struck Onana's arm in the area. As the game wore on West Ham had one final chance but Benrahma's forceful scissor-kick was beat away by Pickford to ensure the victory. The result is huge for Everton, who secured their third league win of the season to move clear of the relegation places. West Ham meanwhile showed their European hangover and will need to refocus on their domestic battles, but for now they remain comfortable in the top half.

 

Predicted: Aston Villa 3-0 Luton

Result: Aston Villa 3-1 Luton

McGinn, Diaby, Lockyer OG - Martinez OG

Emery's side continued their amazing run of not dropping points at home since back in February when they lost to Arsenal, making it 12 league wins on the back at Villa Park. They took control of the game from the off, and Zaniolo should have scored after 4 minutes. Kaminski made a double save from Watkins on 11 minutes, but on 17 minutes they found the opener. A short free-kick found McGinn on the edge of the area and the midfielder saw his effort find the bottom corner. Villa managed the game for the rest of the half, and Luton failed to register a single shot. After the break Bailey came on for Villa, and in the 49th minute he set up Diaby to score their second with a half-volley. Villa continued to dominate and got their third when a long ball over the top found Diaby in the 62nd minute, who saw his cross turned into his own net by Lockyer. Luton did manage a goal in the 83rd minute, but it came from a comical Villa mistake. Konsa put too much on a header back to Martinez, and the ball went in off the keepers head after hitting the bar. Luton could not produce enough quality to keep up with a confident Villa side who swept past AZ Alkmaar 4-1 in the Europa Conference League.

 

Predicted: Brighton 3-1 Fulham

Result: Brighton 1-1 Fulham

Ferguson - Palhinha

Brighton started stronger here, with Leno forced into early saves from Baleba and Adingra. Mitoma got in on the action and fired wide along with Baleba and Adingra as the Seagulls dominated. Palhinha began to show his frustration with Fulham constantly giving up posession, and ended up catching Gross in the face with a stray arm that went unpunished. Brighton took the lead on 26 minutes when Julio intercepted Reed's pass to play in Gross, who in turn set up Ferguson to score. Fulham improved as the half came to a close, but Dunk did hit the bar early in the second half. Pereira, Muniz and Wilson came on to spark Fulham into life, and they began to dominate the midfield. Iwobi won the ball in his own half and found Wilson, who teed up Palhinha on 65 minute to fire home the equaliser. Brighton began to struggle and Muniz saw a close range flick saved by Steele, while Fati was denied an almost certain goal by Leno in the final ten minutes. De Zerbi was proud of his sides performance, especially following their European win over Ajax during the week. Ferguson became the first teenager to score 10+ Premier League goals in a single calendar year since Wayne Rooney scored 11 back in 2005. Fulham meanwhile continue driving on with Palhinha the heart of their side, as he won the most duels and possession during the match.

 

Predicted: Liverpool 4-1 Nottingham Forest

Result: Liverpool 3-0 Nottingham Forest

Jota, Núñez, Salah

A strange start to the game as it was announced that Luis Diaz was absent due to his parents having been kidnapped back in Columbia, with his mother rescued but his father still missing at the time. Liverpool were dominant, as expected, while Forest sat back to absorb the pressure. Núñez was at the fore for Liverpool, creating two openings early on before being central to the opening goal on 31 minutes. Salah played the striker in, who saw his powerful effort parried by Turner, only for Jota to score on the rebound. Four minutes later and Núñez got his own goal when Salah played in Szoboszlai and he found the Uruguayan to score. Gravenberch and Szoboszlai forced saves from Turner before the break, and the Reds continued to dominate in the second half. Dominguez failed with Forest's best chance as he couldn't connect with a ball from Gibbs-White. On 77 minutes Salah got Liverpool's third when Turner was outside the area and allowed Szoboszlai's pass to bounce over him, with Salah scoring into the empty net. Elanga hit the bar late on for Forest and Gakpo had a goal ruled out for offside. Forest failed to register a shot on target all game, while Salah took his goal involvements at Anfield to 14 consecutive Premier League appearances.

 

Predicted: Manchester United 2-3 Manchester City

Result: Manchester United 0-3 Manchester City

Haaland x2, Foden

The biggest game of the weekend resulted in a humbling for Manchester United at home. The Red Devils started brightly, with Lindelof hooking the ball onto the roof of the net and McTominay shooting at Ederson. City took control and on nine minutes Maguire had to clear the ball off his own line following Onana heroics against Foden and Haaland. On 26 minutes Hojlund tugged Rodri in the box from a free-kick to give away a penalty, and Haaland coolly dispatch the spot kick. Foden almost gifted Hojlund a goal with a wayward pass, but Stones recovered to get a touch. Onana saved a near certain goal from Haaland before the break, and after the interval McTominay and Fernandes forced saves from Ederson. On 49 minutes Haaland got his goal when Onana could do nothing about his header. Grealish and Haaland were denied by Onana as the visitors dominated the game, and on 80 minutes got their third. Onana parried an effort but Haaland was there to set up Foden to score. Rashford had a chance late on but put it wide under pressure from Walker. Pep recorded his seventh win at Old Trafford as Manchester City manager, while United have now already lost half of their games in the league this season.
