Arsenal v. Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium: I’m calling for a draw in this London derby. Both teams have started out the season in different ways thus far. Arsenal had a stuttering first few matches but looks to be the hottest team at the moment. Meanwhile Chelsea began hot and last week struggled through for a 1-0 win over Stoke City. Arsenal has looked good in midfield and has done very well to control the game through there, but have not really been able to convert their possession into goals yet. Chelsea have also had their difficulties scoring seeing as how most of their goals this season have come through their defenders.

Everton v. Southampton at Goodison Park: Southampton may have picked up their first win last week, but they are coming up against a very strong Everton team. Everton have looked good in all areas of the pitch so far this year. Southampton has been very streaky this year, but always threaten to score goals. After last weekend’s 4 goals they could easily nick one from Everton. I still predict Everton will win this on in the end.

Fulham v. Manchester City at Craven Cottage: This will be a tasty match-up that really could go any direction. I’m picking a draw for this one. Fulham has looked good lately and the addition of Dimitar Berbatov seems to have really sparked the team into some additional life. Manchester City, however, is coming off a Champions League loss and a draw, at home, to Arsenal. Their defense has looked weak at times and could be exploited in this one.

Norwich City v. Liverpool at Carrow Road: I’m picking a draw for this one, but also feel that Liverpool could pull off their first win of the season. To stay they have started slowly is an understatement, but if they are able to play like they did last week against Manchester United then this could be their first win. Norwich has struggled, but has also managed to eke out 3 draws, so predicting a draw here seems fair for both.

Reading v. Newcastle United at the Madejski Stadium: I don’t think this one will go any other way except a Newcastle win. Reading has shown that they are willing to go forward against teams, but this hasn’t turned out too well for them. This could be due to their defensive unit’s inability to defend effectively. Newcastle, on the other hand, has been able to do both attack and defend effectively.

Stoke City v. Swansea City at the Britannia Stadium: Stoke and Swansea are currently separated by 3 points. Two seemingly opposing styles of play going up against each other with Stoke tending to play pretty straightforward defend and counter while Swansea tend to play a passing, possession and probing style. In the end I see another draw here.

Sunderland v. Wigan Athletic at the Stadium of Light: Sunderland has managed to draw in all 4 of their matches. Sunderland will most likely go for the win at home while Wigan will be content to sit back and look for a draw. I’m predicting a draw for this one.

Manchester United v. Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford: Perhaps the biggest question coming into this match is: Who will play in goal? The interesting thing is that this can be asked of both teams. Sir Alex Ferguson has already said that he plans to play a keeper rotation between David de Gea and Anders Lindegaard while Andre Villas Boas has the difficult decision of sticking with current number one Brad Friedel or giving new purchase Hugo Lloris his Premier League debut. This should be another great match to watch. I would say it will most likely be won in midfield, but United has proven that they don’t need to control the midfield to win. I am picking a Manchester United win by 1 goal.

Aston Villa v. West Bromwich Albion at Villa Park: Aston Villa’s difficulties will certainly continue against West Brom. West Brom has started smartly currently sitting in fourth place with 10 points. My prediction for this match is another West Brom win.

Queens Park Rangers v. West Ham United at Loftus Road: I’m going to pick QPR to get their first win of the season here. The past 2 matches they have shown some signs of life for them and this should continue against West Ham. The Hammers will continue to miss having Andy Carroll up front and will most likely sit back and defend, hoping they can hold off QPR who have scored 3 and allowed 11 this season.
