Arsenal v Tottenham
The Premier League returns with a bang this weekend with the North London derby between Arsenal and Tottenham at the Emirates in what promises to be a thrilling encounter. Tottenham have had the better of Arsenal in recent meetings with the Gunners’ last win against their bitter rivals coming in the 2013/14 season. Tottenham have been in great form away from home this season, but they have only won once in their last 24 trips away to Arsenal. Four of the last six meetings have ended in a draw and that looks the most likely outcome this weekend again.
Prediction: 2-1, 1-1, Other Draw, 1-2
West Brom v Chelsea
The pressure is starting to grow on West Brom boss Tony Pulis after a poor run of form and the last team he would want to come up against is arguably champions Chelsea. Pulis has lost 12 Premier League games as a manager against Chelsea and West Brom go into this game without a win in their last nine games. West Brom will set up to frustrate Chelsea, but Antonio Conte’s men should have just too much quality to win in what looks like being a low-scoring affair.
Prediction: 0-1, 0-2, 1-2
Leicester v Man City
Leicester are the latest side to try and stop runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City when they welcome them to the King Power Stadium. Manchester City are eight points clear at the top of the table and are bidding to become only the second team to win their first six away games in a Premier League campaign. There should be goals in this one as Manchester City are the top scorers this season, while Leicester have netted in their last 12 at home. Manchester City’s firepower should help Pep Guardiola’s men to a 10th successive win in an action-packed game.
Prediction: 1-2, 1-3, Other Away Win
Man Utd v Newcastle
Manchester United will be aiming to maintain their 100 per cent record at home this season when they take on Newcastle at Old Trafford. Newcastle have lost three of their five games away from home this season – all by a solitary goal and Rafa Benitez will set up his team to be hard to beat against his old rival Jose Mourinho. Manchester United have struggled for goals in recent weeks with Romelu Lukaku suffering a drought in front of goal and Newcastle won’t make things easy for them on Saturday. Manchester United should edge it and continue their record of clean sheets at home.
Prediction: 1-0, 2-0
