Dodsy vs The Sage: Predicting the Premier League Results + Carabao Cup Final
Published by Dodsy and The Sage.
After the Champions League results went Dodsy’s way, the head-to-head is level at 2-2. Who will take the lead this weekend?
Cardiff City v Watford
Dodsy: Cardiff have played admirably recently but Watford will have too much for them. Cardiff 1-2 Watford.
The Sage: Cardiff’s improved form is enough to earn them a point. Cardiff 1-1 Watford.
West Ham United v Fulham
Dodsy: Can see this being pretty close but can’t see Fulham taking any points home. West Ham 1-0 Fulham.
The Sage: The Hammers bang another nail in the Cottagers coffin. West Ham 2-0 Fulham.
Burnley v Tottenham
Dodsy: I think Burnley have enough to cause Spurs problems but as they have so often before, I see Spurs sneaking out of this one with 3 points. Burnley 0-1 Tottenham.
The Sage: Burnley stall Tottenham’s Premier League charge. Burnley 1-1 Tottenham.
Bournemouth v Wolverhampton Wanderers
Dodsy: Have a feeling Bournemouth will produce a great home performance this weekend. I’m going for a home win. Bournemouth 2-1 Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The Sage: Lots of goals. Ends all square. Bournemouth 2-2 Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Newcastle v Huddersfield
Dodsy: Newcastle will play well enough to win this comfortably. Newcastle 3-0 Huddersfield.
The Sage: A great game for Rafa at a great time. Looks like he’s pulled it off again. Time for Ashley to drop the price to something more realistic, and get the hell out. Newcastle 2-0 Huddersfield.
Leicester v Crystal Palace
Dodsy: Leicester should win and I think they will. It won’t be easy and I could see a really decent performance from Crystal Palace but I will back the Foxes. Leicester 2-1 Crystal Palace.
The Sage: Hard to call. The home side to just nick it. Leicester 1-0 Crystal Palace.
Arsenal v Southampton
Dodsy: Arsenal were not particularly impressive on Thursday night although they got the job done. They should have too much for Southampton but clean sheets are their weak point. Arsenal 3-1 Southampton.
The Sage: Arsenal click into gear and win this one easily. Arsenal 4-0 Southampton.
Manchester United v Liverpool
Dodsy: Maybe the toughest game of the weekend to predict. It means so much to both teams but neither one will be able to take the much needed 3 points. Manchester United 1-1 Liverpool.
The Sage: Liverpool hardly ever win at Old Trafford, but arguably they have never needed it more. This is much bigger than the Munich game, and I think they will rise to the occasion. Manchester United 1-2 Liverpool.
Carabao Cup Final: Manchester City v Chelsea
Dodsy: I do expect this to be closer than the last time they met but the outcome will be the same. City win their first trophy of the season but of how many? Manchester City 3-1 Chelsea.
The Sage: An utterly irrational prediction, but I’ve just got a feeling Chelsea will do it. Despite the constant upheaval, Chelsea just have a knack of winning trophies. Manchester City 1-2 Chelsea.
