Dimitar Berbatov’s Premier League predictions including Newcastle vs Arsenal and Tottenham vs Chelsea
The former Premier League star looks ahead to a huge weekend of action.
The Premier League will hope to provide its own fireworks across Bonfire weekend with some huge fixtures taking place across the country.
Manchester United kick off the weekend action in desperate need of a positive result away to Fulham following humiliating home defeats to Manchester City and Newcastle United.
As ever, Betfair ambassador Dimitar Berbatov previews the action for Metro.co.uk…
Fulham v Man United
12:30 on Saturday, man I hate that time! Is it lunch, brunch, or breakfast! Man United have to win. They need points. Fulham also need points, even though they’re not struggling, they could do better. Man United also played in midweek so they have a tough schedule at the moment, so I’ll go for a draw here.
Brentford v West Ham
Sometimes you don’t know which West Ham will turn up. I hope Brentford win and continue the good streak they’re on after beating Chelsea 2-0 last time out. Brentford can surprise any team, and West Ham are also definitely beatable, so I’ll go for Brentford to win.
Burnley v Crystal Palace
The newly promoted teams are finding it tough In the Premier League. Vincent Kompany is having a difficult time right now, but I’ll go for a draw in this game.
Everton v Brighton
Everton got a much-needed win against West Ham last week, giving themselves some space between the bottom three. Brighton – well if I could play for any team right now it would be them! They aren’t quite where I want them to be at the moment but I back them to beat Everton away from home.
Man City v Bournemouth
Unfortunately, I love an underdog story, but all I see in this game is a Man City comfortable win.
Sheffield United v Wolves
Sheffield United haven’t won this season yet and that speaks volumes about how difficult it is coming to the Premier League from the Championship. Is it going to be their first win of the season? It might be the one. I’ll go for a surprise here and back them to win their first game of the season.
Newcastle v Arsenal
That’s a big game. Newcastle will be tired because of the games they’re playing in all the different competitions at the moment. They’ve had good results so far. It’s possible that Arsenal could lose here, but I’ll play it safe and go for the draw.
Nottingham Forest v Aston Villa
Aston Villa are the favourites. Forest are down there, but not in much danger right now. I want Villa to finish close to the top four to show how good they can be. I’ll go for a Villa win.
Luton v Liverpool
Liverpool are flying under the radar, not many people paying attention which is helping them do well. It’ll be tough for Luton; I want to say they’ll win this game but Liverpool have to win to keep in touch with the top of the league so I’ll back Liverpool to win.
Spurs v Chelsea
Spurs cannot underestimate Chelsea, or they will suffer. It’s a great chance for them to win and punish Chelsea’s mistakes and if they stay concentrated themselves, then I think they will win once again.
