Premier League predictions

Likely to continue his poor away record

Saturday 26th February

  • Aston Villa v Blackburn
  • Sixteenth take on eleventh at Villa Park but I can’t help but feel the team in sixteenth are the better side. They say the table never lies so I must be wrong.

    Blackburn haven’t won in four and I can still see a slide down the table for Steve Keane and his men. Villa have drawn their last two games and just can’t get their season going and get away from the relegation battle. I really think they’ll get three points today and with the table being so tight, that will actually take them above their opponents.

    Soccernews prediction: 2-1

  • Everton v Sunderland
  • Fourteenth against seventh at Goodison Park. Just when you think Everton are about to put their horrible form behind them they slip up again. They’ve only won one of their last five league games, but on the other hand, they will be full of confidence after last week’s penalty win at Chelsea in the FA Cup.

    Although Sunderland are still riding high in seventh, they will know that only ten points separates them from the drop zone. With only one win in six and three defeats in a row, they will be keen to stop the rot. I don’t think they will.

    Soccernews prediction: 1-0

  • Newcastle v Bolton
  • A mid-table battle as ninth takes on eighth. I’m sure they would both settle for finishing the season in those positions. Newcastle had a good win at Birmingham last time out and are unbeaten in three games. Bolton have been on a poor run but three wins a week, two of which were in the FA Cup, without conceding a goal, suggests that they are back on course.

    I can see these two teams cancelling each other out.

    Soccernews prediction: 0-0

  • Wigan v Manchester United
  • It is true that Wigan pick up the occasional good result and that Manchester United have been far from exceptional in their away games so far this season, but you can’t see the leaders slipping up in this one can you? They weren’t great in Marseille on Wednesday but the opposition were surely stronger than relegation threatened Wigan.

    Soccernews prediction: 0-2

  • Wolves v Blackpool
  • Bottom side Wolves take on twelfth placed Blackpool who continue to keep their heads above the relegation struggle against all logic and common sense.

    Wolves are battling and recent games have seen them beat Manchester United and get a draw at local rivals West Brom. They will give absolutely everything and will never be short of effort and endeavour. The same could be said for Blackpool and the only thing both teams lack is just a little bit of class.

    Neither team is great at stopping the opposition so I can see there being some goals. I think Wolves might edge themselves off the bottom and Blackpool will need to continue looking behind them.

    Soccernews prediction: 3-2

    Sunday 27th February

  • Manchester City v Fulham
  • Third plays thirteenth in what appears to be a home banker. Fulham have won just one away game all season and City have lost only two home games. I really can’t see either of those statistics changing in this one.

    Soccernews prediction: 2-0

  • West Ham v Liverpool
  • Nineteenth plays sixth in what should be an away banker. However, as we all know, nothing is ever certain when Liverpool are involved. Liverpool have only won three games in thirteen games on their travels but West Ham have the same record at home.

    A few weeks ago I might have fancied West Ham to nick a win but the new improved ‘King Kenny’ Liverpool are a different proposition. If they can score a goal, they’ll win the game.

    Soccernews prediction: 0-1

    Monday 28th February

  • Stoke v West Brom
  • Tenth against seventeenth should see Stoke close the gap on those above them and West Brom sink deeper into trouble. West Brom boss Roy Hodgson had a terrible record in away games when he had success at Fulham and wasn’t much better at Liverpool where success was harder to come by. I fully expect him to continue to have difficulty when his new side play away from the Hawthorns.

    Soccernews prediction: 2-0
