SATURDAY

Bournemouth v Man Utd (12:30 GMT)

Bournemouth confirmed all of their finest attacking attributes with the best way they rolled Fulham over final day trip.

The Cherries have been nice going ahead and so scientific as properly – they have to be filled with confidence for the time being.

The place are Manchester United? Mourinho’s males are in eighth place, 9 factors off prime spot, and 5 factors off the highest 4

Manchester United additionally gained final weekend, however their efficiency in opposition to Everton was way more perfunctory.

I nonetheless suppose United will discover a manner of successful this one, although, even when they don’t play significantly properly.

Lawro’s prediction: 0-2

BMTH’s prediction: 3-1

Cardiff v Leicester

It’s exhausting to know the place the Leicester gamers might be mentally after such an emotional week.

There was such an outpouring of affection for Foxes proprietor Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, who died together with 4 others when his helicopter crashed after final week’s recreation in opposition to West Ham.

Leicester proprietor ‘gave a lot to the membership and town; – Lineker

He was clearly a really particular particular person as a result of the entire metropolis has responded, and the Leicester gamers might be determined to get a outcome for him.

Cardiff might be aggressive, however I’m backing Leicester to get a win on what might be a troublesome day for everybody.

Lawro’s prediction: 0-2

BMTH’s prediction: 0-2

Everton v Brighton

Brighton rode their luck slightly bit in opposition to Wolves final weekend however they held on for his or her third straight clear sheet that additionally secured a 3rd successive win.

Hughton delighted with third win in a row

Chris Hughton’s facet have now acquired a little bit of a cushion between themselves and the underside of the desk however he’ll clearly wish to preserve chipping away and selecting up factors.

It’s exhausting to see them getting something at Goodison Park, although.

Everton have dropped factors at residence to Huddersfield and West Ham however I feel they’re progressing as a workforce and, as I’ve stated earlier than, Toffees boss Marco Silva can change video games from the bench if he has to.

Lawro’s prediction: 2-0

BMTH’s prediction: 1-1

Newcastle v Watford

Watford pummelled Huddersfield final week, whereas Newcastle’s wait for his or her first Premier League win of the season went on after they drew 0-Zero at Southampton.

On paper, that is one other Hornets victory however I simply have a sense that Newcastle’s luck at St James’ Park goes to show.

The Magpies managed 27 photographs with out scoring of their defeat by Brighton of their final residence recreation and, in the event that they preserve creating that many possibilities, a few them are going to go in.

Lawro’s prediction: 2-0

BMTH’s prediction: 1-2

West Ham v Burnley

This recreation final season was memorable for West Ham for all of the unsuitable causes – they misplaced 3-Zero and there have been a collection of pitch invasions in the course of the second half.

There’s a totally different temper on the London Stadium now, so let’s hope we do not see any repeat of that form of unrest.

West Ham are a greater workforce than they have been final season too however, for the time being, you wouldn’t say the identical about Burnley.

I used to be shocked by how simply the Clarets have been crushed by Chelsea at Turf Moor final weekend as a result of I believed they’d put up extra of a combat.

Quite than chasing sixth or seventh place like final season, I feel Burnley could be comfortable in the event that they completed sixth or seventh from backside this time.

Lawro’s prediction: 2-0

BMTH’s prediction: 1-0

Arsenal v Liverpool (17:30 GMT)

Each of those groups look harmful once they come ahead however on the again Liverpool are stronger, they usually look a a lot better all-round workforce than they did 12 months in the past.

Arsenal nonetheless have one thing of a mushy centre, and the opposition at all times appears to create possibilities in opposition to them – which is asking for hassle in opposition to Liverpool.

The Gunners gained 11 video games in a row earlier than they drew at Crystal Palace on Sunday however they haven’t performed a prime facet since they misplaced to Manchester Metropolis and Chelsea at first of the season.

I feel Liverpool can have slightly bit an excessive amount of for them however, even when Arsenal do lose, this has nonetheless been a really encouraging begin by their new supervisor Unai Emery.

Lawro’s prediction: 1-2

BMTH’s prediction: 3-2

Wolves v Tottenham (19:45 GMT)

I used to be shocked that Wolves have been crushed by Brighton final weekend, however that was one other lesson for them about life within the top-flight – and how one can nonetheless be crushed even when you’ve got the higher of a recreation.

It will likely be attention-grabbing to see if Wolves handle to have nearly all of play and possession on this recreation, and the way they method it.

Manchester Metropolis are the one prime six workforce to have come to Molineux to date this season – Wolves took the sport to them, and it labored.

SUNDAY

Man Metropolis v Southampton (15:00 GMT)

Southampton can’t purchase a aim for the time being – they’ve solely managed six from their first 10 league video games.

So, their probabilities of getting something out of this recreation will depend on their defence, and whether or not they can maintain out at Etihad Stadium.

BMTH’s prediction: 4-1

Chelsea v Crystal Palace (16:00 GMT)

Crystal Palace are one other workforce struggling for objectives – they acquired two penalties in opposition to Arsenal final week however have a complete of seven objectives from their first 10 matches.

The Eagles’ assault depends closely on Wilfried Zaha, and if he doesn’t produce some magic then they give the impression of being wanting concepts.

Chelsea, in distinction, are on a roll. Even with out Eden Hazard they regarded a category aside from Burnley final weekend, and have been convincing winners.

Blues boss Maurizio Sarri has acquired a proficient squad and comfortable camp – they’re taking part in properly, successful and having fun with themselves, and I feel that may proceed on Sunday.

MONDAY

Huddersfield v Fulham (20:00 GMT)

On present kind, this appears to be like prefer it could possibly be a recreation within the Championship subsequent season – these two groups have managed one win from their mixed 20 league video games to date.

Huddersfield haven’t scored a aim in any of their 5 residence video games this season both, however certainly that has to alter in opposition to a Fulham workforce with the worst defensive file within the Premier League?

Jokanovic ‘not pondering’ about Fulham future

I really suppose Huddersfield will win, however it’s Fulham who’ve the higher probability of staying up this season.
