Former player and football pundit Steve McMahon predicts the outcomes of this week’s English Premier League matches
By Steve McMahon
TOP PICKS ~
Arsenal vs Tottenham Hotspur
This is an all or nothing clash for Arsenal. It’s almost like a cup final , so I'm going with home advantage. Players don't need any motivation for this one and I’m expecting Villas-Boas’ negative tactics to cost him.
Prediction: 2-1 (Half-time 1-0)
West Bromwich Albion vs Chelsea
Although West Brom have showed great spirit, I think the quality of Chelsea will come through. Chelsea can’t afford to lose even at this stage of the season.
Prediction: 1-2 (Half-time 1-1)
