Premier League Matchday 9 Review, Matchday 10 Preview

The Premier League returned with some VAR controversy last week which played a role in Liverpool’s 100% winning start to the season coming to an end against Manchester United at Old Trafford. The 1-1 draw keeps the Reds clear at the top of the table, but sees their lead cut to six points following Manchester City’s impressive 2-0 win at Selhurst Park against Crystal Palace.

Folllowing on from a busy midweek set of Champions League and Europa League games, which featured seven of the Premier League teams in actions across Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, we move onto Matchday 10 in the Premier League this weekend, starting with Friday night’s game between Southampton and Leicester City at St Mary’s.

Matchday 10 Fixtures

  • Southampton v Leicester (Fri)

Both fixtures between these teams last season finished in 2-1 away wins in the Premier League, with a 0-0 draw between the teams in the Carabao Cup sandwiched in between. Southampton have won just two of the last ten between the teams, with Leicester winning five of those matches. Both teams had decent results last week but for me, I think Southampton’s worrying lack of consistency means that Leicester fans should be confident of a win here. Prediction – Southampton 1-2 Leicester (9/1).

  • Manchester City v Aston Villa

Villa have won just three of the last 18 games between the teams, with city winning 13 of those games and the last two matches between the teams have seen City emerge with a 4-0 victory. In truth, a similar scoreline would not surprise me here today as despite Aston Villa being in good form heading into this game on the back of two wins in a row, City are just so far ahead of them in terms of quality that they should record a comfortable win. Prediction – Man City 3-0 Aston Villa (7/1).

  • Brighton v Everton

Brighton beat Everton for the first time since 1982 last season, a 1-0 win at home over the Toffees which ended a run of five wins without defeat for Everton against the Seagulls. They are teams that have played each other just 15 times previously, with Everton winning seven, five draws and just three wins for Brighton. A good win last weekend for Everton has them more confident heading into this game and I think that will translate into a performance here. Prediction – Brighton 0-1 Everton (7/1).

  • Watford v Bournemouth

The Hornets picked up a very good point away to Spurs last week while the point Bournemouth earned at home to Norwich will have been far less welcome for the Cherries. Draws are a common theme between these two teams. In the last 11 games, eight have finished as draws, including an exciting 3-3 draw last season. In truth, I can see this game finishing up in another stalemate between the two rivals. Prediction – Watford 1-1 Bournemouth (13/2).

  • West Ham v Sheffield United

The Hammers don’t enjoy the best of records against the Blades. In their most recent games, West Ham have lost four of the last six, with their last win coming back in 2005. The sides have met just once since, a 1-0 win for Sheffield United in the FA Cup Third Round in January 2012. The Hammers run of poor form continued away to Everton last week, while the Blades were beating Arsenal at home on Mondsy evening in fine style. I have a sneaky feeling the Blades could well cause something of an upset here. Prediction – West Ham 0-1 Sheffield United (11/1).

  • Burnley v Chelsea

Burnley’s more impressive start to the season has been built on a rock solid defence that will be tested here by a Chelsea side that have been scoring goals for fun away from home this season. Burnley have won just four of the last 21 games between the two teams, Chelsea racking up 13 wins in that time. Chelsea were 4-0 winners at Turf Moor last season but I can’t see there being a repeat of that scoreline here as I feel this one will me much closer. Prediction – Burnley 1-2 Chelsea (8/1).

  • Newcastle v Wolverhampton (Sun)

After a battling defeat away to Chelsea, Newcastle are back on home soil where they beat Manchester United 1-0 last time out, taking on a Wolves side that are now finding their best form again after a ponderous start to the season. I do feel Newcastle are starting to gel a little more now under Steve Bruce, but I think Wolves are past masters at undoing teams like Newcastle at home and I think the visitors could be in for a good afternoon here. Prediction – Newcastle 0-2 Wolves (11/1).

  • Arsenal v Crystal Palace (Sun)

Following on from a shocking performance away to Sheffield United, where they were well beaten, Arsenal now head back home to take on London rivals Crystal Palace knowing that a win is a must here if they are to keep in touch at the top of the table. Palace started the season well but the defeat to Man City hit their form a little and I think they are going to struggle to get anything from the game on Sunday. Prediction – Arsenal 3-1 Crystal Palace (11/1).

  • Liverpool v Tottenham (Sun)

After losing their 100% record away to Manchester United last week, Liverpool will want to bounce back at home against their Champions League rivals Tottenham this week. Spurs recent form is shocking, especially on the road and they will go into this game with little expectation of a result, but that could be when they are at their most dangerous. Liverpool have not lost in 44 Premier League games at Anfield and I can’t see them doing so here. Prediction – Liverpool 3-1 Tottenham (11/1).

  • Norwich City v Manchester United (Sun)

Since beating Manchester City 3-2, Norwich City have struggled but a draw last week at Bournemouth saw them claim a vital point, even though they remain in the drop zone. Man Utd have not won a game on the road this season so far and their last away win came back in March. A point at home to Liverpool will put them in good spirits for this game, but the lack of creativity for United is a worry here against a Norwich side who are strong on home soil. Prediction – Norwich City 1-1 Man Utd (7/1).
