Charlie Nicholas is back with his hottest predictions ahead of the Premier League’s reunite this weekend, such as Norwich vs Manchester City, Bournemouth vs Everton and Watford vs Arsenal…
Can Liverpool keep up their perfect start? Will Man City maintain the pace set by the side of Jurgen Klopp? Will Arsenal secure a third Premier League win of the season? Former Arsenal and Scotland striker Charlie Nicholas comes back together with his predictions for the week’s games…
You don’t have any reason stress, aside from the harm to Aymeric Laporte possibly and to look at Man City’s issues.
Norwich are great going forward – Todd Cantwell has started great although everyone is talking about Teemu Pukki. The full-backs like to get large, but they will not do this against City. The Norwich defenders will be emptied from Pep Guardiola’s side. The fact that Grant Hanley cannot get in the Scotland side tells you something.
Daniel Farke does not adopt – the expectation is that you’re going to get beat. If you ask 90 per cent of Norwich fans right now if they would take or if they would rather lose 1-0 rather than have a shot on goal, I believe that they would opt for the former.
They have to go in it although it is not an embarrassment. Kevin de Bruyne was excellent in Glasgow, as was Raheem Sterling over the global break, which explains why I will go with this scoreline.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 2-6 (66/1 with Sky Bet)
We are looking at goals for both teams.
In reality, Bournemouth are strong at home and I am still not confident with Everton. Marco Silva is two results from a crisis.
Ordinarily, Everton begin cold although they must win if we are to find an improvement, these soccer games, but they have begun ok.
Callum Wilson, Josh King and Ryan Fraser will be new after the break, so I will go to get a Bournemouth win .
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 2-1 (10/1 with Sky Bet)
Watford will appear to cause another angry and eliminate the mark. They want to get physical with Arsenal, so that they might approach it this way again. With Quique Sanchez Flores coming again, it will raise the hosts. I liked him but he did not play overly aggressive. He played very technically.
Are the struggles at the back capable of competing with the side of Arsenal? The midfield and attack should be powerful – if Alexandre Lacazette is healthy we’ll be firing.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 1-3 (12/1 with Sky Bet)
This is a really excellent return set of fixtures. Manuel Pellegrini is a guy, and he likes to find a wonderful balance.
Jack Wilshere and Mark Noble will be back in. Because is your predictability with West Ham, people are much too excited about Declan Rice, with lots of mistakes along with clumsiness there. They do look to have found a guy with goals from Sebastian Haller, that poses a physical existence.
Aston Villa have enhanced, however they need Jack Grealish to perform 10-15 metres higher up the pitch if they are currently playing in your home, I continue saying it. He is a pass grasp however you want it in the opposition half rather than near or around the line. The blend of John McGinn and him is tough for anybody to control. I enjoy Wesley up front and now that I enjoy what Villa have at the moment.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 2-1 (9/1 with Sky Bet)
I’m reading this week that there are a couple of accidents floating around. Steve Bruce’s final away game at Tottenham has been a result. Newcastle will probably be much better suited away from house – they do not understand what their fans will do regarding possession.
In the moment Liverpool look as if they can wipe the floor, although I don’t know if they’ll go or who’ll be appropriate for Liverpool. You cannot open against them. Joelinton will not receive any service and needs time. We’ll see how structured Newcastle may be at the back – they’ve been working hard.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 2-0 (11/2 with Sky Bet)
It’s one that I’d love to view, a match. Leicester and one of the groups are currently visiting I think that they could capture. The reality is Leicester have begun, although I am looking in what they have and also what they don’t have. This is a sport where they can open up and sabotage Manchester United.
Should they perform open and expansively afterward they’ll be content. Brendan Rodgers’ negative are great with the ball and has a shape but can counter-attack. I really don’t understand whether Anthony Martial is going to be more fit. The team of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be vulnerable in defence although marcus Rashford will play throughout the centre.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 1-1 (6/1 with Sky Bet)
Sheffield United are passionate and dedicated. Chris Wilder is a man of substance when it comes to his players not doing the task. He fails to take fools. He does not have any loyalty to the players who will not do the job. If you are doing you are in the group, and should you are not fulfilling the duties he wants. When Nathan Redmond is not match on Saturday, ” I don’t believe they have enough of a hazard ahead, although it is similar to Ralph Hasenhuttl in Southampton. It’ll be close, too close to call and they will be pinned by Sheffield Utd back although there are adequate qualities in both teams.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 2-2 (14/1 with Sky Bet)
I must admitthis is the roughest Super 6 of this season – to be assured that a winner is generous, because these are all tough calls.
Leandro Trossard seems decent up-front for Brighton – he’s eager to have in the box and then make things happen. Brighton are discovering a means to get around enjoying Glenn Murray every match. They need to control the midfield more. Ashley Barnes is a few for clubs and Burnley have gone back. Their defence is fine and solid as well as also their midfield is organised, although the Burnley strikers work hard and obtain their rewards. A strategy is to it. That is another draw for me personally.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 1-1 (5/1 with Sky Bet)
There are loads of people. They will be assessing teams and seeing who is fit and who may be the. It will be like that because of the bonded jackpot. Jeff must pay out!
Wolves do well against the big groups. Tammy Abraham has been in shape and Mason Mount has been good. Chelsea remain vulnerable at the back and will likely be threatened with Diogo Jota and Raul Jimenez up front. I see that weekend to Wolves beating Chelsea, also Wolves will be the team, as most people that are currently talking about Leicester, which could override the trend.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 2-1 (12/1 with Sky Bet)
Tottenham are finding it tough to be solid defensively – 13 league matches were dropped by them last year. Crystal Palace won in Old Trafford and played for this. Gary Cahill has enhanced them and since these things start to grow, you can see them. Tottenham came from behind in the home to Aston Villa, they drove it they got lucky against Man City therefore it is not looking great right now and they got beat by Newcastle. It will be another long day to get their fans. It’ll be a stifled counter-attack functionality from Palace – it will be an day but they’ll get there in the end.
CHARLIE PREDICTS: 2-1 (15/2 with Sky Bet)
