Pizza Punter predicts: Man United, West Ham & Arsenal to shine

The Premier League is back in full after a League Cup Final-disturbed weekend, with battles up and down the table set to take place. And if you love football and pizza, it’s perfect for you, with goals meaning pizza!

Yep, you heard us right, if the team YOU back scores two or more goals, Papa Johns will give you 50% off a pizza of your choice. All you have to do is sign up and wait for the ball to hit the back of the net a couple of times, which will see a tasty, discounted pizza hit your table.

We know not every team will be banging in the goals, so we here at FootballFanCast have gone to the trouble (we know, we’re lovely) of assessing who is likely to ease your gurgling belly this midweek…

Manchester United

With the goals flowing in this Manchester United team thanks to the performances of Marcus Rashford over the course of the past week, a home tie against Watford looks to be a banker. Although the Hornets have impressed for much of the season, they’ve dipped a little of late as the reality of safety has seemingly hit home. The Red Devils have taken their two goals or more-per-game haul to 10 after a bleak winter while Watford’s record in relation to conceding the same figure has crept up to 10. Worth a go.

West Ham

With a staggering return of 15 games with two or more goals scored this season, if any team is set up to burst Spurs’ bubble (no pun intended), it’s West Ham. The travelling Tottenham side are all geared up for a win that would take them top of the table, but despite having only conceded two or more goals in a game on three occasions this season, the pressure of the occasion, the Hammers’ attacking prowess and what’s sure to be a fierce atmosphere at Upton Park could be a recipe to take that up a notch. Pizza-tastic.


Arsenal slipped to defeat at Manchester United on Sunday, but in Pizza Punter terms they remained one to back, with two goals scored. That return took the Gunners’ double-goal (or more) haul for the season to 15, meaning they’ve done so in their last three matches. A win is needed for the London club to remain in the title mix against a struggling Swansea side. Seems like there may be a half-price pizza on offer here!
