Arsenal have the best away record in the Premier League, but they will be hard pushed to keep it in this game. They haven't lost a league game at Villa Park since 1998, and they will be looking to keep that record intact. A win will put Arsenal back on top of the league for a few hours at least, but it won't be easy with Cesc Fabregas injured. Luckily they have plenty of other flair players in their squad, but their problems lie at the back. As an Arsenal fan I always predict an Arsenal win, and this game is no different.
Bolton v Blackpool
Blackpool have played some very good football since being promoted, and they have won three of their away games so far. I'm sure they will approach this game like all their other games, and go for a win. That may not be the wisest policy against Bolton, but it's the only way that they know how to play. I can see Bolton winning, and keeping up the pressure on the teams ahead of them.
Everton v West Brom
West Brom are going through a pretty bad run of results at the moment, and they need to change that very soon, or they will be in the bottom three. They play some good football, but they have lost their way recently, and it won't be easy in this game either. I'm predicting a win for Everton, and I'll be surprised if Cahill doesn't score.
Fulham v Birmingham
Birmingham had a magnificent result last week when they beat champions Chelsea 1-0 . They haven't won away from home yet though, and their defence isn't as tight as it was last season. They will be looking to build on last week's result, and climb further away from the bottom three. I can see this one ending up all square.
Manchester United v Blackburn
Blackburn were very pleased to beat Aston Villa 2-0 last week, but their form has been very up and down so far this season. It won't be easy for them to get a result in this game, but they will do all they can to put "Manure" under pressure. Morten Gamst Pedersen is finally back to his goalscoring ways after a couple of seasons where he seemed to have forgotten how to score, and he could cause "Manure" some problems. I can't see this game finishing any other way, than a "Manure" victory, which will put them on top of the table until Chelsea play on Sunday at least.
Stoke v Manchester City
Man City did very well to win 4-1 at Fulham last week, and only Arsenal have a better away record in the league than they do. In Carlos Tevez they have the top goalscorer in the league, and Stoke RFC will do well to keep him quiet. They are well set up to counter the aerial threat from Stoke RFC, and they will think that they can win this game. I think it will end all square though.
West Ham v Wigan
Wigan play some good football at times, but they lack that killer instinct in front of goal that is necessary. They are back in the relegation zone, and they need a result to turn things around. I have a funny feeling that Wigan might just sneak a victory in this game with Charles N'Zogbia doing the damage.
Wolverhampton v Sunderland
Sunderland are seventh in the table, and they have done very well since their thrashing by Newcastle. They fought hard at home to Everton last week, and got a draw fom the game. Their away form isn't great but they have drawn a lot of away games. I think this game will end up with the honours shared.
Newcastle v Chelsea
Chelsea are still on top of the table, despite losing three of their last four league games. They have only scored one goal in those games, and they still have plenty of problems with injury and suspension. Didier Drogba is completely out of form, and there seem to be problems at the club. A defeat in this game would leave a lot of questions hanging over the team and the management, but I have a funny feeling they will sneak a win.
Tottenham v Liverpool
Liverpool have had a very up and down season, like so many other teams this season, but a win in this game by two goals would put them ahead of The Spuds. It would be a strange place for them to be in this season, but it could be just the tonic they need. With Steven Gerrard out they will be depending on Fernando Torres and Dirk Kuyt to score their goals. I have a funny feeling that Liverpool will get something out of this game, but I think it will be only one point.
That's it for this week's predictions, but don't forget to read my preview of Arsenal's trip to Aston Villa tomorrow morning. Feel free to comment on my predictions, and tell me where you think I have gone wrong or right, as the case may be.
See You Tomorrow.
