Weekend Matchups Preview

After a midweek that saw two fantastic finishes, a couple upsets, and a few solid performances, I feel that those games definitely equaled, if not surpassed the expectations coming into them. We saw Tottenham, down 4-2 with 5 minutes to play, score 2 goals to tie it, at Arsenal. Just as exciting, we then saw Premiership Talk’s Wednesday Wonder, Marouane Fellaini, score a 90th minute goal to beat Bolton in their own stadium. Also, Stoke and Middlesbrough had huge wins over Sunderland and Manchester City, respectively. How much better can these matches continue to get? We will surely see come Saturday. Saturday, November 1st Everton v. Fulham (12:45): The secret is out: Marouane Fellaini is here, and he will be a fixture in the Premier League for a very long time. First it was his header goal to level the game against Manchester United. Then it was his 90th minute goal to beat Bolton. What more can this Belgian do? I’m sure we will find out soon enough. Everton are making their push for a comfortable table position, and a win this Saturday against Fulham would be huge. Fulham haven’t been playing all that bad lately, though. With 5 points in their last 3 games, Fulham are showing that they will not just fall by the wayside. However, Yakubu hasn’t scored in a few games for Everton, and with Fellaini on fire, look for Yakubu to jump into the mix this weekend and put one into the back of the net. I wouldn’t be surprised with a draw, but Everton is looking good, and since it’s a home game, I’m taking Everton. Chelsea v. Sunderland (15:00): The beginning of a new streak. Chelsea will be out for another home win to start another. People may think that Chelsea are vulnerable at home now, but you know what I would say to those people? “You’re CRAZY!” Look for Chelsea to win handily at home, especially since Sunderland are feeling down since their midweek loss to Stoke. Chelsea won easily on Wednesday to a Hull City team that has been making some noise since the beginning of the season. Now Lampard, Kalou, and the rest of the crew move on to a Sunderland team who have been playing decently this season. I can’t see Sunderland doing much of anything in this match, though. Chelsea will be too pumped up for this game, so look for a solid shutout at Stamford Bridge.

Midweek Match-Ups Preview

After this past weekend’s outcomes, it is safe to say that several teams dubbed it “the revival.” Tottenham got their first win of their season under their new manger, Harry Redknapp. Everton played well at home and was able to draw Manchester United. Hull won big at West Brom to prove that they are no slouches. Sunderland was able to win the Tyneside Derby. And Liverpool snapped Chelsea’s 86-game home unbeaten streak. What will these midweek matches have in store? We can only hope that they can somewhat live up to the standard that this past weekend’s matches set. Tuesday, October 28th Newcastle v. West Brom (19:45): Both Newcastle and West Brom hit bumps in the road in their last game. Newcastle lost to a very confident Sunderland team, and West Brom got smoked by Hull, at home no less. Although both teams have not been performing up to expectations as of late, I can see Newcastle with a convincing win at home today. West Brom is just not playing well at all, and Newcastle should be able to turn it around with the support of their home crowd. Having been outscored 8-0 over their last 2 games, a goal seems rather unlikely for West Brom, let alone an away win. Put a “W” in the win column for Newcastle. Wednesday, October 29th Aston Villa v. Blackburn (19:45): Villa have started off the season performing better than expectations. Blackburn, meanwhile, are floating around the middle of the table. Carew and co. have been playing very well, especially in their 4-0 win on Sunday at Wigan. Blackburn, on the other hand, have been playing terribly, with only 2 points and one goal this month. Villa have the opportunity to finish off Blackburn at home to further solidify their position as a top-5 team. I expect an easy win in Villa Park in front of their fans. Fulham v. Wigan (19:45): This game should turn out to be a battle given both teams’ recent run of results this month. Wigan have had the losses piling up this month, with not a single win or draw in October. Fulham only have 2 points this month to account for. Both teams need a big win to turn things around. After a 4-0 loss for Wigan in their last game at home against Aston Villa, the Latics need some momentum if they are to save their season. Fulham, meanwhile, have the home-field advantage for this match, which is desperately needed if they are to gain some confidence and score some much needed goals against the team from the JJB. I would expect a draw in this match given how terribly both teams have been playing. Hull City v. Chelsea (19:45): In what should prove to be the game of the week, we have the upstart team from Hull against the powerhouse from Chelsea. Over the weekend, Hull and Chelsea went in opposite directions, as Hull beat West Brom 3-0 at West Brom, and Chelsea lost at home to Liverpool to snap their home unbeaten streak. In my last predictions, I wrote Hull off because they had yet to score 3 or more goals in a game. Hull responded by scoring 3 goals and taking an easy away win. Also in my last predictions, I picked Chelsea to win easy at home against Liverpool. Liverpool came into town and thoroughly dominated them and held them scoreless. Look for Chelsea to make up for their previous performance, or lack thereof. Hull will be up for their second big game of the season, but I don’t know if they can put up another game like they did at the Emirates. The crowd will be into this game, but I feel that Chelsea will come away the winners. I would not be surprised if Hull gets the win, though, because everybody keeps writing them off, including myself, and they continue to show us that they have what it takes. Stoke City v. Sunderland (19:45): After a convincing win at home against Newcastle on Saturday, Sunderland move onto Stoke as their next victims. Stoke have been playing terribly as of late. Their only win in their last 3 games came against Tottenham, but they were in shambles at the time. Sunderland have been playing consistently. Stoke will be unable to recuperate after their heavy loss to Manchester City. A Sunderland win should be expected.
