Forget Lawro! It’s Visser’s Premiership Predictions!

Premier League Logo

Last week I got 2 perfect scores and 1 other result correct. Considering it was the most insane Premier League weekend ever, I feel slightly proud. This week will hopefully see some improvement though and here we go, my predictions for the weekend action are as follows:

SATURDAY

Arsenal v Fulham

Mark Schwarzer will be hellbent on proving his decision to stay at Fulham was the right one. If he wanted to win anything it wasn’t anyway! I do see a decent performance from the Aussie today though and it will have to be. Arsenal have looked immense at home this season but have come under pressure for giving games up too cheaply. Fulham fans may hope for that weakness to shine through come the match, it won’t. Arsenal are too good.

My Prediction: 3-1

Birmingham v Tottenham

Birmingham are a tough cookie to crumble at home and Spurs will certianly have their work cut out. Following Birmngham’s midweek victory over Villa they will feel confident, though, the cut throat attacking style of Spurs may have them on the back foot from kick off.

Spurs can’t keep a clean sheet, but they will score. Even at St Andrews I can see them leaving with all three points, just.

My Prediction: 1-2

Blackburn v Wolves

Now Big Sam’s side are not facing Sir Alex opposition, they can actually play to their ability once again. Though, they face a rejuvinated Wolves side that showed real tenacity against Sunderland last week with an excellent fight back at Molineux to win the game. Blackburn are tough at home though and can prove difficult to break down.

Expect fireworks between these two though, McCarthy will certainly be looking for all three points and Big Sam will not accept any less than a win at home. A tough one to call but I see Blackburn just about stealing it.

My Prediction: 2-1

Chelsea v Everton

Everton are too strong a team for this to be one of those 5-0 hammerings that tells the world that your team is alright again. Indeed, are Chelsea alright? They struggled at Newcastle last week and are still in a run of bad form and Everton will not be the team to give them an easy ride.

Everton themselves will be disappointed with the outcome last week against West Brom and will be looking to recover. The suspension of talismanic midfielder Mikel Arteta will certainly have an effect on the game and Everton may struggle without him. David Moyes will be hoping Tim Cahill is enough, but he probably won’t be.

My Prediction: 2-1

Manchester City v Bolton

Bolton’s gutsy comeback against Blackpool last week really impressed me. It was like watching one of those United games where they fall apart only to see them come back and nick it at the last. Unfortunately Bolton didn’t quite nick it, but had enough ability to score some fantastic goals and prove once again how good a job Owen Coyle has done at the club.

City on the other hand struggled at Stoke last week but in their own back yard will certainly take the game to the trotters. I expect to see a really good display of attacking football and a lot of goals. If you watch any game today, make sure it’s this one.

My Prediction: 3-2

Wigan v Stoke

Stoke are unbeaten in four and outclassed Manchester City at times last week. Now they face a Wigan team in a sulk. Defeated last week at lowly West Ham, they need a result to get their heads back in the game. If Wigan don’t improve fast they could be heading for the drop zone. Inconsistency has plagued their season, but I don’t see Stoke giving them much chance of redemption.

Wigan, just not good enough fo me.

My Prediction: 1-2

Blackpool P-P Manchester United

Game postponed because of a frozen pitch.

SUNDAY

West Brom v Newcastle

West Brom were immense at Everton last week and it may worry Newcastle to face Di Matteo’s lads on Sunday. However, Newcastle battered Chelsea at times last week in a very physical affair at St James’ Park. The Magpies’ form has been inconsistent at times this season and away from home it can be tough to predict what will happen.

Striker Andy Carroll is scoring for fun and has been a fantasy football wet dream so far this season, he probably will again. The Baggies to edge it for me though.

My Prediction: 3-1

Sunderland v West Ham

Sunderland have been in good form recently with the exception of their blip against Wolves last weekend. Their strikeforce looks hungry for goals and they have become a great team to watch. The Hammers may think they “saved their season” last week with a victory duet against Wigan and Man Utd. They may have found their scoring touch once again, but I think they have a lot of work to do get themselves back on track.

I predict a slight wobble from the Hammers up north. Sunderland will win it comfortably.

My Prediction: 2-0

MONDAY

Liverpool v Aston Villa

Liverpool deserved more that they got last week at Spurs but their lack of a striker to support Torres is starting to become a distinct factor to their problems. Villa are in the same boat; with only Gabby Agbonlahor doing anything up top for the Villains at the moment, Houllier will be looking for some talent come January.

Robert Pires is yet to set the Premier League alight but Houllier’s young midfield look really good. I just feel Liverpool might just be a bit too strong for them, given they can find the net.

My Prediction: 2-1
