Posted by | January 11, 2019 | App News, Previews | No Comments

Saturday 12th – Monday 14th January 

We have had a break from the Premier league for the Cups. Some shocks, such as the 2-1 loss to Leicester at the hands of Newport County. To the ridiculous scoreline of 9-0 when Man City played Burton Albion in the Carabao Cup Semi Final. There is still one more leg to play!

West Ham United v Arsenal

West Ham form: WDLWL

Arsenal form: WWLDW

Last Meeting: Arsenal 3 West Ham 1 (25th August 2018)

West Ham are hoping that the transfer speculation of Marko Arnautovic will not scupper their plans against Arsenal. Arsenal are off the back of a 3-0 win against Blackpool and are hoping the rest gets Aubameyang back and scoring.

CrowdScores Predicts: Arsenal win

Brighton & Hove Albion v Liverpool

Brighton form:  WDWDL

Liverpool form: LLWWW

Last Meeting:  Liverpool 1 Brighton 0 (25 Aug 2018)

Liverpool have lost twice in a row for the first time this season, firstly to the second place Manchester City & once again in the FA Cup to Wolves. They will have their full strength squad back to face Brighton, who are on a four game unbeaten run.

CrowdScores predicts: Liverpool win

Burnley v Fulham

Burnley form: WWWLL

Fulham form: LLWDD

Last Meeting: Fulham 4 Burnley 2 (26th Aug 2018)

Fulham are still very unstable, even if Ranieri has come in and tried to keep them challenging to get out of the relegation zone. Mitrovic is also reported to have had a £50 million bid from an unnamed Chinese club rejected. Burnley are feeling more comfortable in the league after two straight wins giving them a slender two point gap from the drop zone.

CrowdScores predicts: Draw

Cardiff City v Huddersfield Town

Cardiff form: LLWDL

Huddersfield Town: LLLLLL

Last Meeting: Huddersfield 0 Cardiff 0 (25th August 2018)

Relegation 6 pointer! Huddersfield have been on absolute dire form, 9 losses in a row. There last win dates back to 25th November when they beat Wolves. Cardiff will have a loss of confidence to League 1 Gillingham 1-0 in the FA Cup.

CrowdScores Predicts: Draw

Crystal Palace v Watford

Palace form: WWLDW

Watford form: WDDLW

Last Meeting: Watford 2 Palace 1 (26th August 2018)

Palace are up and down with their performances this season with no outright goalscorer, Luka Milivojevic is the top scorer for The Eagles with most of them coming from the penalty spot. Watford are playing well, however transfer speculation over several players may be a distraction for them.

CrowdScores predicts: Draw

Leicester City v Southampton

Leicester form: LWLWW

Southampton form: DDLLW

Last Meeting: Leicester 0 Southampton 0 (27th Nov 2018)

Claude Puel seems to be under a bit of pressure from the fans after some inconsistent form and some questionable team selections. However, they do sit in 7th position and another win could cement themselves there. Southampton are still struggling regardless of a new manager, but a win could get them out the relegation zone and even get as far up the table as 15th.

CrowdScores predicts: Leicester win

Chelsea v Newcastle United

Chelsea form: LWDWW

Newcastle form: DLDLD

Last Meeting: Newcastle 1 Chelsea 2 (26th August 2018)

Is Sarriball still working? Critics in the media are starting to doubt it after some poor performances. Including a 0-0 draw with relegation stricken Southampton, and to keep fourth they will need a change in fortune in front of goal. Newcastle have been heavily affected by the off the field situation of the club and the owner’s reluctance to supply the finances for transfers.

CrowdScores predicts: Chelsea win

Everton v Bournemouth

Everton form: WLLWL

Bournemouth form: LDLLW

Last Meeting: Bournemouth 2 Everton 2 (26th August 2018)

Everton feel they should be doing better in the league, even the owner admits it too. They hold 11th table in the league. Bournemouth’s good start seems to have dropped off as they now hold 12th place. However a win against Everton could mean they leapfrog them in the league.

CrowdScores predicts: Everton win

Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester United

Spurs form: WWWLW

Man Utd:  WWWWW

Last Meeting: Man Utd 0 Tottenham 3 (27th August 2018)

Tottenham still plan to be playing at Wembley for the near distant future, which could also mean they will be in a Carabao Cup at “Home”. Manchester United seem like a different team from who played Spurs earlier on in  the season. Players like Pogba and Rashford have gained great confidence in the change of manager.

CrowdScore Predicts: United Win

Manchester City v Wolverhampton Wanderers

City form: WWWWL

Wolves win: WLWDL

Last Meeting: Wolves 1 Man City 1 (25th August 2018)

Manchester City in  their previous two games have scored a massive 16 goals! (Okay, they were against Burton & Rotherham) but their arch rivals United could help them distance themselves from Spurs. Wolves are on a high off the back of their win in the FA Cup against Liverpool and have a good track record against the top 6

CrowdScores predicts: City win
