Premier League Predictor

27 November 2009 01:51

With a weekend of Premier League football around the corner, gives you a run down of the matches and possible outcomes.

Saturday November 28 (15:00 unless stated)

Aston Villa v Tottenham Hotspur (KO 17:30)

Spurs come to Villa Park in superb form and off the back of a 9-1 victory at home to Wigan Athletic. Villa are also on a good run of form and lie just three points behind the North London side.

Verdict: 1-1

Blackburn Rovers v Stoke City

Despite a 3-0 loss to Fulham last time out, Blackburn are good at home. Stoke have had a good start to the season but this game may not be one for the neutrals.

Verdict: 1-0

Fulham v Bolton Wanderers

The Cottagers will be buoyed by news that Roy Hodgson and Brede Hangeland will pledge their futures to the club and have seen a remarkable turnaround under the former Internazionale manager. Fulham have not drawn at home nor Bolton away so odds are that someone will come out victorious.

Verdict: 2-0

Manchester City v Hull City

City's season started well but has stalled and Hull now have a proven match-winner in Jimmy Bullard but the Tigers have been awful away from home this season while the Citizens have not lost at Eastlands.

Verdict: 3-1

Portsmouth v Manchester United

With all of the hype surrounding Avram Grant's first match in charge many will be hoping that he can turn Pompey's season around. It is unlikely that it will be an overnight job, though, as they have struggled at Fratton Park. A match against the reigning champions will not be welcomed either.

Verdict: 0-2

West Ham United v Burnley

The Hammers have certainly been keeping their fans entertained but, sadly, have little to show for it at The Boleyn Ground so far. However, Burnley have just one point away all season and, as long as the Clarets have 11 men on the field, the home fans should be confident they will not throw this one away.

Verdict: 2-1

Wigan Athletic v Sunderland

Wigan will desperately want to set the record straight after their heavy 9-1 defeat in North London last weekend. Sunderland, though, will be formidable opponents despite their poor away form and Darren Bent will be a worry as always.

Verdict: 1-0

Sunday November 29

Arsenal v Chelsea (KO 16:00)

Arsenal have not dropped points at the Emirates this season, conceding just four goals along the way. Chelsea have the best away record in the league though and will have Didier Drogba fit after a run out in the Champions League. Home advantage favours an Arsenal win.

Verdict: 2-0

Everton v Liverpool (KO 13:00)

Neither side will welcome this derby clash as they have had disappointing weeks. Liverpool crashed out of the Champions League while Everton lost to Hull and had plans for a new stadium rejected. Both doing as bad as each other and it is hard to see either winning any time soon.

Verdict: 2-2

Wolverhampton Wanderers v Birmingham City

Both sides will be desperate to record a win as they are probably going to be in a relegation battle this season. Wolves are going to be the favourites though, as they have home advantage.

Verdict: 1-0
