D Pundit's Derby Weekend Millionaire Picks

Friday 30 September 2022

/ by Godwin Odiko


International break is over! Club football is back and back with a banger in the Premier League as we will witness two derby games this weekend. Arsenal welcome Tottenham to the Emirates in the North London derby, while Manchester City play host to Manchester United in the Manchester derby. So, who will clinch the bragging rights in both derby games? 

Arsenal vs Tottenham

Arsenal went into the international break on a winning note, defeating Brentford 3-0 away from home. Tottenham also won in their last game; humiliating Leicester City 6-2. Both teams will be looking to continue their winning streak in this one. Arsenal are my favorites here but in this sort of game you never can tell how the result may go. The Gunners are my favorites because they are playing at home and have been impressive at home in this fixture. To be honest, I am really struggling to call the result here as both teams have got the potential to win the game but I will just lean on Arsenal to come out of this one with a slim victory.

Liverpool vs Brighton

Brighton's new manager Roberto De Zerbi is yet to manage affairs in the Premier League due to the postponement of League games after the death of Queen Elizabeth II. He will be looking to engineer his men to victory in his first game in charge against Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool. Liverpool have been very inconsistent this season but if they turn up in this game I see them defeating Brighton. I am just going to bank on Liverpool to win but marginally.

Crystal Palace vs Chelsea

Chelsea are yet to win under new manager Graham Potter, so they will be gunning for their first win under the English manager in this one. Meanwhile, Crystal Palace are no pushovers and I expect them to give Chelsea a good run for their money. However, Chelsea have completely dominated this fixture, winning in the last nine encounters between the two clubs. I expect the Blues to extend their winning streak over Crystal Palace here but it's going to be a very difficult one for Graham Potter's men.

Southampton vs Everton

Both teams are really struggling in the League at the moment. Southampton have won just once in their last four league games, while Everton have won just once in their last six league games. Southampton look the better team ahead of this clash as they were 2-0 winners in this same fixture last season. Everton will want to build on their win from their last game before the break, while Southampton will be looking to turn things around having lost their previous two games before the break. I think this will end in a draw, but this game should be entertaining.

Fulham vs Newcastle

Fulham are in the top six on the log heading into this clash because they have been impressive in some games this season. That 2-2 draw against Liverpool in their first game of the season still rings a bell. Newcastle should be looking at keeping Aleksandar Mitrovic quiet, otherwise the Serbian can be very deadly especially in the air. This is going to be a very interesting match, a game that can end in a very entertaining draw but I think Fulham have got what it takes to run away with all three points here. So I am going for a Fulham win in this one.

Bournemouth vs Brentford

Bournemouth have looked a revived side since they sacked Scott Parker - winning one and drawing the other game under Gary O'Neil. Brentford are a very good side and I think if Bournemouth can get something from this clash they should be applauded. If this game was played before the break I would have banked on Bournemouth to get something on the back of their form at that moment but it remains to be seen if the break will sort of halt their momentum. I can't see Brentford losing here though, so I am just going to bank on this game to end in a draw. And if the game goes on to produce a winner then it will be Brentford.

West Ham vs Wolves

Both teams have won just once in the league so far in this campaign. I expect this to be a very tough one for both teams but I am going to go with West Ham to nick the three points here. If David Moyes want to keep his job as manager of West Ham this season then he should be winning this sort of game.

Manchester City vs Manchester United

This is unarguably the biggest game of the weekend as these two league juggernauts clash at the Etihad on Sunday evening. Manchester City are unarguably the favourites and I think they will win here unless Manchester United put up a spirited performance. The Red Devils have looked rejuvenated lately - racking up four wins from their last four league games. It remains to be seen if they can maintain their form here against a very talented Manchester City side. Erik ten Hag's men will need to stay compact at the back especially and try to make every of their attacking moves count because they will not get many of them against Pep Guardiola's men. Manchester United can get something from this clash really but I just can't guarantee that. What is sure is that Manchester City are favourites and I think they will win slimly here.

Leeds United vs Aston Villa

This game should end in stalemate. I say so because these two sides are struggling at the moment and I think a point here from both teams won't be bad. However, if this game goes on to produce a winner, I am think it will be Leeds United.

Godwin d Pundit's correct score prediction: Leeds United 1-1 Aston Villa

Leicester City vs Nottingham Forest

Leicester City haven't won any game in the league so far - losing a mammoth six times. If they really want to turn things around, then they should be winning here. I say so because Nottingham Forest are also struggling at the moment - they come into this game on the back of four straight league defeats. Leicester have got to win this otherwise I can't mention any other team they will be able to defeat to turn their season around and keep Brendan Rodgers' job.
