This week’s predictions for the Saturday’s Premier League fixtures come courtesy of Ronan Mullen. Every week we will be taking turns to predict upcoming games and use these predictions to play Sky’s Super 6.
Chelsea 2-0 Norwich
It’s about time the Blues got back to winning ways. Expect Hazard to turn a corner and bag at least one of the two predicted goals. Fabregas also looked good for Spain over the international break and his recent form suggests he might be ready to shed that invisibility cloak he’s been wearing around Chelsea’s midfield of late!
Everton 2-2 Aston Villa
A classic Premier League tie and the most played fixture in England’s top-flight. Expecting a game befitting its billing with edge of the seat action and dubious calls. A two-all draw should suffice.
Newcastle 2-0 Leicester
This Saturday marks the day that Jamie Vardy’s run comes to an end. It was fun while it lasted, but like all good things, Ruud Van Nistelrooy is better. Newcastle are coming into their own, expect Steve McClaren’s Magpies to nick all 3 points.
Southampton 0-0 Stoke City
Webster’s dictionary defines boredom as… Time to turn off Match of the Day, I’m calling a stinker. More often than not there’s one game that makes you want to go to bed instead of waiting up for Jermaine Jenas’ questionable analysis. Scoreless draw, the joys.
Swansea 2-0 AFC Bournemouth
“Two good footballing sides”, whatever that means. Home win is a default judgement, and I’m taking it.
West Bromwich Albion 1-3 Arsenal
These are the kind of games you need to win if you’re going to challenge for the league. The Hawthorns isn’t quite the fortress it has been in recent years and that’s left the door open for Arsenal to make a statement. Mertesacker to score anytime is 11/1, get on it.
The above results give you an accumulator at 174/1 with PaddyPower, while backing each of the above scores returns odds of 1,700,000/1.
Certainty, thy name is Mullen.
