Dodsy vs The Sage: Predicting the Premier League Results
Published by Dodsy and The Sage.
With The Sage taking a commanding 5-2 lead, can Dodsy start to turn it around?
Crystal Palace v Brighton
Dodsy: Could be an interesting game here but when push comes to shove, I just think Palace have more in front of goal. Crystal Palace 2-1 Brighton.
The Sage: They need to bring their away form home, and against Brighton I think they will. Crystal Palace 2-0 Brighton.
Cardiff v West Ham
Dodsy: I can only see this ending one way and it won’t be pretty for Cardiff. Cardiff 0-2 West Ham.
The Sage: West Ham are playing well, and Cardiff are heading to the Championship. Cardiff 1-3 West Ham.
Huddersfield v Bournemouth
Dodsy: Bournemouth should win this comfortably. To do that they may need to rediscover where the goal is. Huddersfield 0-1 Bournemouth.
The Sage: We can at least expect Bournemouth to have a couple of shots on goal this weekend. Huddersfield 1-2 Bournemouth.
Leicester v Fulham
Dodsy: Rodgers didn’t get his first win for Leicester last week, but I think he finds the 3 points here. Fulham have a better squad than results would suggest but they cannot produce when it really matters. Leicester 2-1 Fulham.
The Sage: Rodgers will get them going enough to dispose of a hapless Fulham. I do hope the Cottagers run with Scott Parker in the Championship next year though. Leicester 3-0 Fulham.
Newcastle Utd v Everton
Dodsy: Newcastle have been impressive recently, Everton haven’t really been but I can see them canceling each other out. Score draw. Newcastle 1-1 Everton.
The Sage: Having raised their game against their high flying neighbours last week, Everton may well slip back to mediocrity at St James. Newcastle 2-1 Everton.
Southampton v Tottenham
Dodsy: Spurs are a better team and will be expecting 3 points. Southampton 0-2 Tottenham.
The Sage: Despite their Premier League running out of steam, Spurs will be able to chug along to a victory here, while dreaming of Champions League glory. Southampton 0-2 Tottenham.
Manchester City v Watford
Dodsy: I think Watford will put up a good fight but as usual, I think an early goal for City will settle them down. They will be 4 points clear going into Sunday. Manchester City 3-0 Watford.
The Sage: Despite losing 5-0 at Liverpool recently, Watford are dangerous opponents. They might get spanked, but City havent been at there best and I think Watford might nick something here. Manchester City 1-1 Watford.
Liverpool v Burnley
Dodsy: If Burnley can find their old defensive prowess and Liverpool continue to struggle to break open teams, this could be tight. Liverpool just to nick it. Liverpool 1-0 Burnley.
The Sage: Last year when Burnley visited Anfield they only had 28% possession of the ball, endured 35 shots at their goal while only having 5 of their own, and nicked a 1-1 draw. I don;t see that happening this time. Liverpool 5-0 Burnley.
Chelsea v Wolverhampton Wanderers
Dodsy: Wolves haven’t been all that recently but I am still not convinced by Chelsea. This is the sort of game they throw points away in and I think they will. Chelsea 1-1 Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The Sage: Chelsea to continue their top four challenge. Chelsea 2-0 Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Arsenal v Manchester United
Dodsy: Thursday night’s game was another painful reminder to Arsenal fans how poor their defence is. If they can avoid defeat at home to their old foes, they have a nicer run-in than most and the top four could still be on the cards. Arsenal 2-2 Manchester United.
The Sage: With a mounting injury list, and with players on the emotional downturn after their midweek highs, I see Utd getting beat here. And they won’t have VAR to help them with a ridiculous and unjust penalty decision either. Arsenal 2-1 Manchester United.
