The start of the new EPL season is upon us and here is our predictions for the 1st week of the season.
Fulham vs Arsenal
Alex’s Winner- Arsenal
Arsenal just had a good offseason where they brought in a few good players while also winning the Shield against Liverpool. I see a Fulham team that made a lot of moves upsetting the Gunners in the first game whereas Alex sees Arsenal getting the Win.
Crystal Palace vs Southampton
Alex’s Winner- Draw
A battle of two teams not likely to be good at all. We both came to a truce, suggesting that this will be a Draw.
Liverpool vs Leeds United
Alex’s Winner- Liverpool
Leeds United is coming in on an emotional high having being promoted for the first time in 15 years, while Liverpool had the best season arguably ever by a premier league team. Liverpool did lose to Arsenal but I can’t see Liverpool losing this and same with Alex, but it will be a close game. Leeds will look good and build off of it as the season goes on.
West Ham United vs New Castle United
Alex’s Winner- New Castle United
Another match up of teams not expected to do much this year. I have this game as a 0-0 draw where Alex has New Castle United scoring and taking it.
West Bromwich vs Leicester City
Winner- Leicester City
Alex’s Winner- Leicester City
Leicester City will take a step back this year but they get the chance to play newly promoted West Bromwich first. I see Vardy scoring twice and giving LCFC a 2-1 win over W.B. Alex has Leicester City winning as well.
Tottenham vs Everton
Alex’s Winner- Draw
Tottenham was one of the hottest teams to end last season with Harry Kane scoring 8 goals in the last 6 games. Everton has been a streaky team and I see Tottenham winning 3-1 under the guidance of Kane whereas Alex has this game a draw.
Sheffield United vs Wolverhampton
Alex’s Winner- Wolverhampton
Wolverhampton will be a team to watch out for this year with the extra time they have not being in the Champions League or Europa League. Sheffield United is one of the best defensive teams but they struggle to put the ball in the back of the net. We both have Wolverhampton taking this and I think it will be 1-0.
Brighton & Hove Albion vs Chelsea
Alex’s Winner- Chelsea
Chelsea went on a spending spree making the forward and midfield line great while Brighton spent a little bit less. I have this as Chelsea winning 5-2 and Alex has Chelsea winning also. The Chelsea defense is bad and that is why they gave up 2 goals. They will have to score a lot this year.
With the League Cup running from Tuesday to Friday the premier league will be off till Saturday so the normal set of games from here on out will be longer, so as always Stand your Ground and support our show every Sunday at 11am Eastern and check our past shows on YouTube.
