Liverpool v West Bromwich Albion - Premier League

It’s been a football match or the other since the last fixture of the last matchday on Monday, and we are back with our eyes glued on the T.V again this weekend as the EPL action continues.

Week 9 fixtures have got these clubs taking it all out on one another over the weekend.

Saturday

Bournemouth v Tottenham

Arsenal v Middlesbrough

Burnley v Everton

Hull v Stoke

Leicester v Crystal Palace

Swansea v Watford

West Ham v Sunderland

Liverpool v West Brom

Sunday

Man City v Southampton

Chelsea v Man Utd

While Bournemouth have had some good games this season, with last weekend’s defeat of Hull a particular highlight, it’s not expected that they get even a draw against the visiting Tottenham. But that’s why the game won’t be played on paper, the pitch will do judgment.

Prediction: Tottenham to win

Arsenal have that record of having it difficult against the really small teams, and here are one of those games the club often fail to win. But 6 consecutive wins in all competitions should change all that given the Gunners new attacking form, it should probably be a question of how many goals Middlesbrough will concede?

Prediction: Arsenal to win

Will Burnley be able to prevent Everton from getting all 3 points at Turf Moor? Despite having scored in each of their last 18 home league games against the visitors, 5 league losses thus far look like a poor record – one Ronald Koeman’s men will be hoping to make worse.

Prediction: Everton to win

Only a point separates Hull City and Stoke City, and this would pass for a bottom-table clash between 2 sides that have struggled this season. Only that the visitors look to have had an upturn in events following their draw against United and win over Sunderland in their last 2 league fixtures. Can they grab their 2nd win of the season at the KCOM stadium?

Prediction: Stoke to win/draw

Will defending champions Leicester be able to end their underwhelming run of games in the league against Crystal Palace? 2 wins in 8 see them lie just 2 points above relegation zone, and it’ll definitely be interesting a match to watch.

Prediction: Draw

The last time Swansea failed to score in a home league game against Watford was in March 1923, so while getting the goal(s) against the visitors is almost guaranteed, will it be enough to hand former U.S national team coach Bradley, his first ever EPL win?

Prediction: Draw

West Ham’s season kind of just started last weekend after they got their 2nd win of the season, and if that form will make them prevent Sunderland from getting their own first ever season win is anybody’s guess.

Prediction: West Ham to win

Tony Pulis is unbeaten in his last 8 Premier League games against Liverpool, and how West Brom are able to stand another stiff test, this time around against a completely different Reds team interests many.

Prediction: Liverpool to win

Manchester City are without a win in their last 4 games across all competitions, and it’s a dip in form the Saints can take advantage of when they visit the Etihad on Sunday afternoon. Pep Guardiola has another tough challenge on his hands.

Prediction: Manchester City to win

Chelsea welcome Jose Mourinho back to the Bridge after his infamous exit last season, and which soccer fan isn’t keen on seeing how this reunion goes down? Definitely the clash of the titans. Not to be missed for anything, not even for a presidential debate.

Prediction: Draw
