D'Pundit picks winners as Arsenal and Liverpool do battle in the EPL

Friday 7 October 2022

/ by Godwin Odiko

Last weekend, I was able to correctly call seven (7) match outcomes out of ten. I am back this weekend to give my predictions on all matches in the EPL slated for the weekend. So, read on to find out who I will be backing for the win this weekend.

Manchester City vs Southampton

This is not a matter of who will win here, it's a matter of how many goals will Manchester City win by here. Southampton have been really poor this season - and they have lost their last three league games coming into this clash. Manchester City have been scoring for fun recently and I expect them to feast in this one.

Godwin d Pundit's correct score prediction: Manchester City 4-0 Southampton

Chelsea vs Wolves

I predicted last weekend that Chelsea were going to pick up their first win under  Graham Potter - and they did. I think if they play their best here they will win. Wolves have been utterly poor this season - picking up just one win so far. Chelsea will have too much for Wolves here.

Godwin d Pundit's correct score prediction: Chelsea 2-0 Wolves

Bournemouth vs Leicester City

Bournemouth are still unbeaten under Gary O'Neil, but I think their resolve will be truly tested here. I say so because Leicester are coming into this game on the back of an impressive 4-0 win over Nottingham Forest. The Foxes will be brimming with confidence in this one and I expect them to get something out of this game. I think Bournemouth will make things difficult for Leicester City here, that's why I can't guarantee a Leicester City win. I am just going to go with a draw here. However, if this game goes on to produce a winner then it will be Leicester City.

Godwin d Pundit's correct score prediction: Bournemouth 1-1 Leicester City

Newcastle United vs Brentford

This is going to be a very interesting match on Saturday. I didn't give Newcastle a chance at Fulham last weekend yet they went on to drub Fulham 4-1. They will certainly be looking to continue on that momentum here. Meanwhile, Brentford have been inconsistent this season - one really can't tell what they can come up with. However, I think if Newcastle play on top gear here, they will win. So I am going to back Eddie Howe's men to come out top but it's going to be a slim win.

Brighton vs Tottenham

I will be looking out for this game on Saturday evening. These two teams have impressed so far this season and it will be difficult to call a winner here. I enjoyed watching Brighton play under Graham Potter and now under new manager Roberto De Zerbi, Brighton have shown that they can still entertain whilst getting result. Brighton really impressed me against Liverpool last weekend and they were unlucky not to come out of that one with the maximum points. Tottenham have been result oriented under Antonio Conte and they will be looking to bounce back from their defeat to Arsenal last weekend. I am really struggling to pick a winner here, so I am just going to back this one to end in a very entertaining draw.

Godwin d Pundit's correct score prediction: Brighton 2-2 Tottenham

West Ham vs Fulham

West Ham will be looking to build on their 2-0 win over Wolves here while Fulham will be looking to react to their defeat against Newcastle here. I think this is also going to be a very entertaining game. It's really going to be a difficult game for both teams but I think West Ham playing at home have got what it takes to nick victory here.

Godwin d Pundit's correct score prediction: West Ham 1-0 Fulham

Crystal Palace vs Leeds United

Both teams have been poor in their recent games and I think they will both be looking to win this game to turn their season around. Crystal Palace can be very difficult to play against at home. So I see Leeds United struggling here. I am not overly confident on this one but I think Crystal Palace have got what it takes to come out with all maximum points here.

Godwin d Pundit's correct score prediction: Crystal Palace 1-0 Leeds United

Arsenal vs Liverpool

This is the game everyone will be looking out for this weekend. This fixture has always been very entertaining. Arsenal fans will not go into this game very confident because of how their team has fared in this fixture in recent time. Liverpool have won in the last four league meetings between these two. But looking at current form of both teams, it will be difficult to trust Liverpool with victory here. Arsenal have been very impressive dismantling every opponent they have faced save for Manchester United only. Liverpool will need to be very organized at the back if they don't want Arsenal to do to them what they have been doing to other opponents this season. I see this game ending in a very entertaining draw. I really think Liverpool will look at the quality of opponent they are facing and turn up. 

Godwin d Pundit's correct score prediction: Arsenal 2-2 Liverpool

Everton vs Manchester United

Everton seem to have turn a corner winning their last two league games. They will definitely be looking to continue on that winning form here. Meanwhile, Manchester United will be looking to react after losing scandalously to Manchester City last time out. The Red Devils were involved in Europa League game in Thursday at Omonia Nicosia, winning there 3-2. Their last two games in all competitions have shown that their defense need fixing. They conceded eight goals in just two games which is alarming. Everton will be looking at that stat and be thinking 'we can do it'. Erik Ten Hag simply needs to sort out his defense otherwise they might be in for another shocker against Everton. I am projecting this game to end in a draw as Manchester United haven't really impressed me in their last two games to warrant me giving them a win here. 

Godwin d Pundit's correct score prediction: Everton 1-1 Manchester United

Nottingham Forest vs Aston Villa

If Nottingham Forest loses here, I think the manager will be gone by Monday. I say so because the manager has been fully backed in the window and now needs to deliver. Aston Villa on their part will come here looking to pile more misery on Nottingham Forest. I think this will end in a draw. As I simply can not separate these two looking at their current form. Nottingham Forest have got to avoid defeat here to save Steve Cooper's job.

Godwin d Pundit's correct score prediction: Nottingham Forest 0-0 Aston Villa
