Former player and football pundit Steve McMahon predicts the outcomes of this week’s English Premier League matches
By Steve McMahon
TOP PICKS ~
Newcastle United vs Manchester City
This is a must-win game for Manchester City, as they need to get their confidence back after the derby defeat. I can see them coming away with the victory because Newcastle have been very poor in recent weeks.
Prediction: 0-2 (Half-time 0-1)
Tottenham Hotspur vs Swansea City
If Tottenham are to equal their fourth place finish of last season, they need a winning run. Although Swansea have proven tricky customers so far, I think Spurs are too good at home.
Prediction: 2-0 (Half-time 1-0)
