Premier League: Round 25 Predictions

Round 24 wasn't the best for me as my 5/10 was slightly below the community average since I failed to pick Newcastle to win at Forest. Villa were unlucky not to get a result in my opinion but I definitely didn't see the wins for Sheffield United and Brentford coming.

Here are my predictions for each match in Round 25 of our Premier League Predictor game.

Note that there are 12 matches in this round due to postponements/rearranged fixtures which means we have Man City vs. Brentford and Liverpool vs. Luton in midweek after the games shown below.

Brentford vs. Liverpool

Since they also have that Man City game to come just a few days later, this is set to be a difficult little period for Brentford but they are at least coming into it off the back of that impressive win at Molineux. It's not impossible that they get something here, but I think Liverpool will be too strong - even if the hosts start well, the Reds are very difficult to keep out over 90 minutes. Brentford 1-3 Liverpool

Burnley vs. Arsenal

This should be another fairly routine away win, as Arsenal certainly found their scoring boots last weekend! Burnley's last two home fixtures were the ones they really needed wins from, as this is of course a far more challenging match for the Clarets. Burnley 0-2 Arsenal

Fulham vs. Aston Villa

I don't think anyone can really tell how Villa will perform here, as even though they were good last time out against Manchester United despite the absence of some key players, they've now lost yet another in Boubacar Kamara. With Diego Carlos also reportedly out, I think Villa are left with only Clement Lenglet and Pau Torres at centre back which looks like a very unusual and very left-footed pairing that Fulham will feel they can exploit. Are the hosts good enough to do that? I have my doubts, so I'm going with a draw. Fulham 1-1 Aston Villa

Newcastle vs. Bournemouth

Newcastle still seem pretty uneasy defensively, but they're scoring a lot of goals and look like favourites here now that Bournemouth are struggling for wins. After that 4-4 in their last home outing against Luton, it really wouldn't surprise me if Newcastle end up getting beaten here, but the more likely outcome is another high scoring win for Eddie Howe's side so let's go with that. Newcastle 3-1 Bournemouth

Nottingham Forest vs. West Ham

Nobody will feel confident with this pick as you can't really trust either of these sides - West Ham are the stronger but how can you pick them after that display against Arsenal? I suppose we could say a response is due, but Nottingham Forest really are sliding towards trouble after that home defeat last weekend so they're also not short of motivation. They let me down last week but I still have a feeling they'll turn things around so I'm going with Forest again but don't feel great about it. Nottingham Forest 2-1 West Ham

Tottenham vs. Wolves

They haven't been the most convincing wins in the world, but Tottenham keep getting results at home and the chances are they manage another one here. Like Newcastle, they're conceding too many goals for anything to feel comfortable, but they look sharp in attack and Wolves are likely to look less threatening than they have been without Matheus Cunha. Tottenham 3-1 Wolves

Manchester City vs. Chelsea

I can't remember ever going against City at the Etihad in these predictions and I'm not going to change that here. Chelsea have very slight momentum after a couple of good wins at Villa and Palace but throughout this season they've taken a couple of steps back after taking a step forward so I'm still not sure there's too much for City to fear. Manchester City 2-0 Chelsea

Sheffield United vs. Brighton

Sheffield United remain bottom of the league despite that fairly surprising win at Luton last weekend, and that result isn't enough for me to pick them here. Brighton are definitely beatable, as Luton recently proved in damning fashion, but the Seagulls gave a better account of themselves in their more recent away outing at Tottenham. Sheffield United 1-2 Brighton

Luton vs. Manchester United

So how will Luton respond to that home defeat when it was a rare game in which they were strong favourites? It feels like they've got used to enjoying the underdogs tag this season, so perhaps they'll be far better in this fixture where they're back to trying to upset a giant of the division. I think this will be tight, but United just seem to somehow find a way at the minute, as they have for much of the season without always playing particularly well. Luton 1-2 Manchester United

Everton vs. Crystal Palace

This might well be one to re-visit closer to kick-off as reports suggest Palace might make a manager switch ahead of this game which would of course change things a fair bit. It's a tough fixture for the Eagles regardless, as they're up against an Everton team in desperate need of points in front of what will likely be a lively crowd under the lights, and I'm not sure they can win without Olise and Eze even if there's potential for a new manager bounce. Only the Manchester clubs have won at Goodison since September, so I'm backing the hosts for now and can't really tell if I'll be tempted into switching nearer to KO! Everton 2-1 Crystal Palace

For the midweek games, I'll be holding off on scorelines for now but it's safe to say I'll be picking Manchester City and Liverpool at home.

Had 4-1 City for the Brentford game so way off there! Was expecting more of a reaction after dropping points vs. Chelsea. Then have gone 2-0 Liverpool - comfortable enough but they’ll have one eye on the Cup final. How about you? 20 Feb 23:16
