FOOTBALL PREDICTION CHALLENGE MIDWEEK SPECIAL

Midweek Premier League Football. Such a delight. Whilst I do love the big midweek European nights, nothing seems to beat the excitement of the Premier League for me. Those freezing end of year trips to places like Stoke or Newcastle. Special stuff indeed. There is a full round of games to discuss and predict. So let’s get into our Prediction challenge midweek special.

Quickly looking back to last round, a deserved victory for Steve Murphy. Most competitors found it pretty tricky with the average a pretty pathetic 4.4/10. But “Murph” had a Prediction cracker with a very strong 7/10. No one really got close to be fair. Unless he has another cracking round though he won’t have bragging rights for to long though.

Looking at the fixture list, Tottenham have a chance to redeem themselves after a poor home showing at the weekend. They travel to take on Leicester who are showing signs of stability under new coach Claude Puel. However, under Pochettino its rare to see Spurs have two poor performances in a row so I expect an away win. It won’t be easy though and Leicester can be pretty deadly on the counter, but I think Tottenham have enough at the back to deal with it.

Man United were also not at their best at the weekend, but a familiar 1-0 win was enough to get them the 3 points at home to Brighton. Watford will pose a far greater attacking threat, so this is going to be a really tough game for the red devils. I am going out on a limb and predicting a Watford win. Nothing to do with my Liverpool allegiances (well almost nothing), it’s just a gut feeling. United have been average on the road so far, but its not all bad news. Watford’s home record is nothing special either. Could be an interesting match.

I am pretty confident that both Arsenal & Chelsea will have pretty straight forward home wins against Huddersfield and Swansea respectively. Man City vs. Southampton could be a tricky one. Southampton were having trouble finding goals, but banged four past Everton at the weekend. You would still think City will have way to much at the Etihad, but anyone fancy an upset here? Not me. Home win.

For me the most difficult one to predict of the round is the Stoke vs. Liverpool game. Stoke never make it it easy for teams at the Britannia and I am pretty sure it will be a cold miserable evening. Liverpool on paper should have way to much for Stoke, but Liverpool are well Liverpool and anything can happen. I have to go for an away win here and I can see it being a comfortable win. In saying that, my Liverpool predictions are rarely confident ones. Man United fans may get some extra ammo for the cannon Wednesday night.

You can see all of my predictions in full below.

Don’t forget you need to get your predictions in by Tuesday at 20.30 CET.

OZUNCUT ACCUMULATOR

I decided to go in a different direction for a quickie accumulator this mid week. Instead of banking on team win money lines, I decided to have some fun and go with goal scorers. Never an easy shout, but I have had success in the past. Let me know what you think. Does it have a shot?

Good luck to all. Results will be out Thursday morning. ๐Ÿ™‚
