Week 22 Premier League predictions.

Posted on January 21, 2017 by Eddie S

Last Saturday fifty percent of my predictions came to fruition in terms of result though I failed to correctly predict a score. Fortunately on Sunday I was wildly inaccurate and in view of my obvious allegiance to Tottenham was extremely happy with the way the results panned out. Again today I will try to predict just how todays games might go. No doubt the league table will look very different again by the time the dust has settled:-

Liverpool v Swansea City-Title contenders today take on one of the favourites for the drop in what should turn out to be a one-sided affair. Though Swansea have replaced their manager again I fear it might be too little too late which will be a shame. Even with a strong ex-Tottenham contingent in their ranks it is doubtful that Swansea will come away from Anfield with anything other than a fairly comprehensive defeat by 3-0.

Bournemouith vWatford-Both teams have shown themselves to be inconsistent this season but with home advantage and more points on the table already you might expect that Bournemouth will take all three points, I don’t and believe that Watford might just find the form and performance that they are capable of a point 1-1

Crystal Palace v Everton- Some are completely surprised by the continued lack of form shown by Palace under new leadership, the organisational skills of Big Sam have not yet shown themselves and they remain in serious trouble near the foot of the table. Everton will be buzzing after last weeks result over City and with the quality added already in this window will provide a formidable challenge today. Everton for me by 2-1.

Middlesbrough v West Ham- This is a tough one to predict as the home team are never pushovers whilst West Ham seem to have found a little form and spirit following the Payet farce. scoring goals is the problem for Middlesborough and though they have secured the services of Bamford I’m not sure that will be enough to win the day for them. If Andy Carroll declares himself fit I’ll go with an away win but if not a 1-1 draw.

Stoke v Man Utd- Another toughie this with much depending upon how well the home team start. There is little doubt that Stoke are capable on their day of causing most teams trouble but they need to get up an early head of steam. United still do not strike me as much more than top 6 contenders but as is usual with a mourinho team they are hard to beat. I’m going for a 3-1 United win but that might easily be very different.

West Brom v Sunderland- Last week West Brom allegedly had an off day though the blunt truth is that they came up against an irresistible force on the day, having said that Tony Pullis has a decent side. Sunderland seem to have lost the means to get results for the moment and rely far too heavily on Jermaine Defoe to score the goals that they need. This simply has to be a home win for me by 2-0.

Man City v Tottenham- Who would have thought that a team with the financial might of City, coached by Guardiola and off the back of almost £200m of summer investment would be starting a home game as slight underdogs based upon recent performances and how the table currently stands. Today City and Guardiola face a mini crisis against the form team of the moment. Tottenham will go into this game full of confidence in the midst of a great run of results but not quite sure how they will cope without Jan Vertonghen for a while. Let’s be honest City are not really as bad as last weeks performance might suggest and they will surely bounce back, for that reason, reluctantly, I believe they will pick up a 1-1 draw.
