thumbnail Hello,

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

By Steve McMahon


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)

Liverpool vs Aston Villa (HT: 1-0, FT: 2-0)
