Premier League Preview

Another weekend brings a packed Premier League schedule, here are my predictions for another exciting weekend of Premier League action.

All Saturday, 15:00 kick off’s unless stated.

Hull City v Watford

Hull fans will be happy they are at home this weekend, they are up against a Watford side who are in and out of form. Hull are great at home and I think they will pick up the three points in this one. They have to if they want to stay out of the relegation zone, they have been lucky with Swansea losing in the last few weeks.

If Hull win this, it should give them huge confidence going into the final throws of the season.

Prediction: Hull City 2 Watford 0

Swansea City v Stoke City

Swansea are in real trouble at the minute, they have failed to capitalise on Hull losing over the last few games. Paul Clement will be looking at this game as a very winnable one. Swansea must win this game to put the pressure on Hull, it looks like it will be between those two for the final relegation place.

Swansea have some tough games coming up, they face Manchester United and Everton – That makes this game even more important. I think this one will end in a draw, it is a tough one to call.

Prediction: Swansea City 1 Stoke City 1

Bournemouth v Middlesbrough

Bournemouth are strong at home, I fully expect them to get three points against a Boro side struggling for form and goals this season. You would be a brave man to back Boro at the moment, unfortunately for their fans, they just aren’t good enough.

Bournemouth will be too strong for Boro, a win for the Cherries may well be the final nail in Boro’s coffin.

Prediction: Bournemouth 3 Middlesbrough 0

West Ham v Everton

This should be a good game, there will be some great quality on show. West Ham are pretty much safe now, they can play with a bit more freedom for the rest of the season. Everton have had a fantastic season under Ronald Koeman, he will certainly be looking to break into the top four next season.

This will be a tight game, I think it will be an entertaining draw.

Prediction: West Ham 2 Everton 2

Burnley v Manchester United (Sunday, Kick Off 14:15 GMT)

Burnley have been fantastic at home this season, they will make it really tough for Manchester United. With United playing in midweek and picking up a few injuries, Burnley will certainly fancy themselves in this game.

You never quite know what you will get from Mourinho’s United, one week they look brilliant and the next they flatter to deceive. I fancy Burnley to get something from this one, Turf Moor is such a hard place to go to.

Prediction: Burnley 1 Manchester United 1

Liverpool v Crystal Palace (Sunday, Kick Off 16:30 GMT)

This should be a great game, especially with how Palace have been playing recently. Zaha, Townsend and Benteke are real threats and Palace can punish teams on the break.

Liverpool have had a huge blow in losing Mane, he is such a key player for them – That was proved in his absence during the African Cup of Nations. However, with Coutinho and Firmino in good form I think Liverpool will just about edge this one.

Prediction: Liverpool 3 Crystal Palace 2
