Premier League Predictions – The Inside Track

This weekend should prove to be one of the most exciting weekends in Premier League football for a long time. There are some interesting Premier League fixtures on Saturday, but Sunday is a football bonanza. We have three derbies to enjoy, as Aston Villa face Birmingham, Sunderland host Newcastle and Everton travel to Liverpool, and then to round off the action Tottenham will attempt to end Manchester United’s unbeaten Premier League run at White Hart Lane. Who will win? This is what the experts think…

Liverpool v Everton: New manager, same problems. Kenny Dalglish’s arrival may have lifted the mood among the fans, but the performance against Manchester United in the FA Cup showed how much has yet to be done on the pitch. Everton’s form has picked up of late – barring a setback at Stoke – and I sense another disappointing day looms for Liverpool. Away win.

Man City v Wolves: City are still pushing on in the title race and will be confident of getting three points.

Sunderland v Newcastle. Steve Bruce will be desperate to avenge the crushing defeat at St James’ Park but Newcastle have shown some decent form on the road (in the League) and could well pull off a derby double.

STOKE V BOLTON: Bolton’s push for the top six has started to stall recently but they should be good enough to get something from their trip to the Potteries. A point would be enough for Stoke, too

West Ham v Arsenal: Can’t look beyond an away win for Arsene Wenger’s men for this one especially as West Ham are rock bottom of the table again and Arsenal have only lost one of their last six away games in the League.

Tottenham v Manchester United: United have been doing just enough all season, but Spurs are formidable when in the mood and can end United’s long unbeaten run
