Former player and football pundit Steve McMahon predicts the outcomes of this week’s English Premier League matchesBy Steve McMahon
TOP PICKS ~
Chelsea vs Arsenal
Chelsea have had a poor result against Southampton and their fans are definitely growing more unhappy now but they should win this one.
They do have poor home form currently, but Arsenal are not great away either, and in this case Chelsea’s quality should see them through.
Prediction: 2-0 (Half-time 1-0)
Tottenham vs Manchester United
This is not going to be a popular sentiment among fans, but Tottenham have the firepower to cause an upset here. United are undoubtedly a fine team going forward, but they have been suspect at the back so far this season and Spurs have fast players like Bale and Lennon that can hurt the Red Devils.
Prediction: 2-1 (Half-time 1-0)
