This week’s Premiership predictions

Manchester City v Fulham (12.45pm) You never know what to expect from City, but Fulham have drastically improved their away form and I think they could nick it. 0:1
Arsenal v Newcastle (3pm) The Magpies tend to frustrate Arsenal, but I can’t see that happening on this occasion. 2:0
Chelsea v West Ham (3pm) A couple of wins has made West Ham’s league position more pleasant, but I don’t think they are in the right form to stop a Chelsea side hurting from defeat against Spurs. 3:1
Everton v Bolton (3pm) I think Everton might struggle while Tim Cahill is out, starting tomorrow. 0:1
Portsmouth v Watford (3pm) Pompey to get back on track after two games without a win. 2:0
Reading v Charlton
(3pm) I can’t see Les Reed having any immediate impact against a confident Reading side. Seol to be on the scoresheet. 2:0
Sheffield United v Manchester United (3pm) Manchester to win this battle of the Uniteds. They are just playing too well at the moment. 0:2
Middlesbrough v Liverpool
(5.15pm) A central Stevie G to drive Liverpool to victory. 1:2

Wigan v Aston Villa (1.30pm) Both sides are in decent form. Difficult to pick a winner, so I won’t! 2:2
Blackburn v Tottenham (4pm) Spurs had a few midweek injuries and Blackburn might be able to take advantage. 1:1
