Porter’s Predictions – Premier League – 27th-29th April 2013

Updated: April 25, 2013

Here we are with another round of Premier League fixtures meaning another round of predictions. Manchester United confirmed their 20th title on Monday night with a win against Aston Villa, but there are still key games left to decide European spots and in the battle for survival.

This weekend, there is Stoke vs Norwich, Reading vs QPR, Arsenal vs Manchester United and Aston Villa vs Sunderland. Here are my predictions for this weekend (with explanations too!).

Saturday
Man City 3-0 West Ham
Everton 2-1 Fulham
Southampton 1-1 West Brom
Stoke 1-1 Norwich
Wigan 1-3 Tottenham
Newcastle 2-1 Liverpool

Sunday
Reading 2-3 QPR
Chelsea 2-0 Swansea
Arsenal 2-2 Man Utd

Monday
Aston Villa 2-1 Sunderland

 

Saturday

Man City 3-0 West Ham – City’s home form has been impressive all season long and I don’t think this Saturday against West Ham will draw up any exceptions. West Ham has been on good form, unbeaten in their last five games, but I think this run will end against the former champions.

Everton 2-1 Fulham – A disappointing loss against Sunderland last week will be the fuel Everton will use to produce a win this weekend. Prior to last week, Everton hadn’t lost since February and I think they will recapture this form. Fulham need Berbatov to get on the score sheet if they are to have any chance of winning. They haven’t scored a goal themselves since they played QPR at the start of the month (own goal vs Aston Villa). Everton should win though as they are unbeaten at home in 2013.

Southampton 1-1 West Brom – In recent games, Southampton have been good at home but only been able to produce wins against the bigger sides. A point this weekend will take them past the magic 40-point mark which will most likely grant them Premier League football next season. There isn’t a lot West Brom can still go for this season as they no longer can achieve a European spot, but they shouldn’t sit back as Southampton will be tough opposition.

Stoke 1-1 Norwich ­– Both sides won last weekend so they’ll hope to repeat this form this weekend. With the threat of the drop still in sight, this game should be a good one. Both sides lack a frequent goal scorer though so it should be close. If Stoke still had the home form they had in 2012 this year, this result would be going Stoke’s way, but with only one win at home in all of 2013, a draw is a more likely result.

Wigan 1-3 Tottenham – Wigan are usually impressive at this time of year against the bigger teams. With Tottenham though still looking to earn Champions League qualification, I think their push for survival will be halted this weekend. Tottenham will be high in confidence after picking up a win against Manchester City last weekend so I think another win is on the cards for them this weekend.

Newcastle 2-1 Liverpool – The loss of Luis Suarez for Liverpool is a big one, as he has helped his side get out of a lot of trouble. This is therefore a great opportunity for Newcastle to pick up all three points this weekend. Having won five of

their last eight league games, Newcastle could reach the magic 40-point mark this weekend with a win, increasing their chances of survival. They’ll be hoping Cisse will be able to find the net for them this weekend.

Sunday

Reading 2-3 QPR – This fixture will be one of the best games to watch this weekend, in a ‘Go hard or face the drop’ match up. If either one of these sides loses this weekend they’ll be the first side to be relegated from the Premier League this season. A draw wouldn’t be enough to keep both sides up for another day (till the result of the Aston Villa game), but I think QPR will be able to find a win, meaning Reading will be the first side to be relegated.

Chelsea 2-0 Swansea –
Chelsea have been undefeated in the last six games at home in the Premier League and Swansea have failed to pick up an away win the Premier League in 2013. Chelsea still need to secure their Champions League spot too so a win this weekend will take them one step closer. Swansea has failed to win in their last five games but they have drawn their last two games, so progress is being made. However, I don’t think they will be able to beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Arsenal 2-2 Man Utd – Manchester United secured another Premier League title with a 3-0 win against Aston Villa last Monday. Unlucky for Arsenal fans then as they will have to give Robin van Persie and the rest of the Manchester United squad the guard of honour when they walk out onto the Emirates pitch this weekend. Manchester United has stated that they are aiming to break the Premier League points record so don’t doubt that they will hold anything back this weekend. Like Tottenham and Chelsea though, Arsenal are still looking to secure a Champions League spot for next season, so I think a draw will be a most likely result.

Monday

Aston Villa 2-1 Sunderland – Both sides are still fighting for survival, so finding a win is vital. Aston Villa could send QPR and Reading down this weekend with a win and with Benteke finding the score sheet quite often in the last few games, this is looking likely. Sunderland will hope to continue their good start under new manager, Paulo Di Canio with another win but I think the likes of Weimann, Benteke and Agbonlahor will be too much for them to handle.
