Macca picks Chelsea and Manchester City to prevail

Fomer player and football expert Steve McMahon predicts the outcomes of this week’s English Premier League matches

By Steve McMahon


Chelsea vs Liverpool

Liverpool’s youngsters have done very well so far but this is too big a test for them, going up against the big boys. Chelsea are too strong a squad for Liverpool and should win this one.

Prediction: 2-0 (Half-time 1-0)

Man City vs Tottenham

Andre Villas Boas’ negative haven’t been very impressive and Spurs are not very good away from home. On the other hand, Manchester City really need to get going, especially after the Champions League setback and there’s no better time than now.

Prediction:  3-0 (Half-time 1-0)
