Arsenal

Your Weekend Barclays Premiership Predictions

Liverpool v Arsenal Both sides come into the early afternoon clash on the back of success last Sunday. Liverpool have flattered to deceive on occasions at home this season but I’m taking them to take a significant step to finishing in the top four. Liverpool 2 Arsenal 1

Blackburn v Aston Villa By contrast two sides with little to shout about at the moment. Villa will miss Darren Bent’s goals and as awful as Blackburn were in their last outing against Manchester City, I fancy them to claim a vital three points and put Alex McLeish under more pressure. Blackburn 2 Aston Villa 1

Manchester City v Bolton As much a home banker as it is possible to imagine. All that remains to be seen is how many City will score. Manchester City 4 Bolton 0

QPR v Everton With Everton running into form following a productive January transfer window and QPR struggling at home all season, this looks like it can only go one way. However on this occasion I’ll let my heart rule my head. QPR 2 Everton 1

Stoke v Norwich Norwich start the match above Stoke and Paul Lambert has to be a candidate for manager of the year. Stoke’s old-fashioned brutalism looks to have run its course in recent months but Tony Pulis’s side will still finish comfortably in mid-table. Norwich have a poor record at the Britannia Stadium and have yet to win in six attempts. Stoke 1 Norwich 1

WBA v Chelsea WBA thrashed Sunderland last time out whilst Chelsea eased to a comfortable victory over Bolton. With their Champions League decider against Napoli to come in the week, Andre Villas Boas could be forgiven for resting some of his key players. The problem is that he doesn’t seem sure who his key players are. WBA to dent Chelsea’s challenge for a top four place. WBA 1 Chelsea 1

Wigan v Swansea Wigan are desperate for three points and have an excellent opportunity to get them against a Swansea side whose form has dipped in recent weeks. They have won just once at home all season however. I’m going for the Latics to shade a five-goal thriller. Wigan 3 Swansea 2

Newcastle v Sunderland Sunday’s midday kick-off is the Tyne-Tees derby. Newcastle are still in the running for an unlikely top four finish and with the Senegalese strike force of Demba Ba and Papiss Cisse looking like one of the finest strike partnerships in the division, I expect Alan Pardew’s men to reign supreme in the North-East. Newcastle 3 Sunderland 2

Fulham v Wolves Fulham secured a rare away victory at QPR last weekend and despite Wolves’ excellent comeback against Newcastle, I expect the Craven Cottage side to take all three points here with Pavel Pogrebnyak continuing his rich vein of scoring form since joining the club in the January transfer window. Fulham 2 Wolves 1

Tottenham v Manchester United The weekend’s big game sees Tottenham desperate for a home victory in order to retain an outside chance of claiming the title. Following last weekend’s disastrous hammering by Arsenal, Harry Redknapp’s side will be looking to make amends although Scott Parker is out with the red card he received in that match. United are entering the business end of the season when they are usually at their deadliest but despite this I’m going for Spurs to give Harry Redknapp a belated 65th birthday present. Tottenham 2 Manchester United 1
