Predicting the Prem – Gameweek 1
It’s almost time for the return of Premier League football, much to everyone’s delight. This weekend sees the first run of games in the opening weekend of the league, with the first game kicking off between Fulham and Arsenal at Craven Cottage.
It is always tense during the first game week – fans of all clubs hoping for a strong start to the season and a big three points to start their new campaign. There has been plenty of action during the transfer window in the Premier League, with money still being spent despite the implications of COVID-19 on the financial landscape of the sport.
This means this season will be one of the strangest but likely one of the most competitive yet, making it harder to predict all the results every week. Because of how difficult it has become, this is likely going to become a weekly series now, with me trying to predict the results for each game week, and hopefully, it doesn’t go too awful…
So here it goes, my predictions for game week 1…
Fulham 0-2 Arsenal
The first game of the season, and Fulham’s first game since being promoted via the playoffs just a few months ago. The Gunners have had a strong transfer window – and with it being Arteta’s first full season in charge the players will be in good spirits ahead of the game along with their new signings such as Gabriel and Willian, I can’t see the Cottagers come out of this game with a decent result, and I predict Arsenal to win 2-0.
