A good result for Arsenal at Burnley, I thought that was a great result to go there, which is a hard place, and dig in and win. And I thought Huddersfield did great against Man City. I am going to go 3-0 to Arsenal as away from home, Huddersfield are a lot different to what they are at home - Bournemouth beat them 4-0 at home.
PAUL PREDICTS: 3-0 (11/2 with Sky Bet)
Burnley will be gutted about what happened against Arsenal on Sunday, while Bournemouth have turned the corner big time. So I am going to go for Bournemouth to win this 2-0 - I know they drew on Saturday, but I just think they are playing good football and Sunday's result will have knocked Burnley sideways.
PAUL PREDICTS: 2-0 (15/2 with Sky Bet)
The banker of the week this game. I thought Chelsea were fortunate against Liverpool, they had a spell in the game where they were good, both teams had their moments in the game at times. But I am going to go 4-0 to Chelsea, I can't see anything other than a Chelsea win. I know Swansea went to Arsenal and could have gone 2-0 up and went to Tottenham and drew 0-0, but I just do not see them stopping Chelsea, who have got some great fixtures coming up.
PAUL PREDICTS: 4-0 (8/1 with Sky Bet)
This could be a good game. I thought West Ham did alright against Leicester on Friday. It was a weird game in that Leicester could not get out of their own half, but nothing happened in the second half for 25 minutes and it was not like Kasper Schmeichel was making save after save. Everton, though, are all over the place, conceding fours and fives in their last two games… that is not Everton. And on Sunday, for me they just lied down. Everton have good fans, so it was sad to see and it must be breaking their hearts seeing that. But I am going to go with home advantage here, 2-0 to Everton, as if they cannot get themselves up for this game at home, they need to start panicking. This is a big match and they need to give more than they did against Southampton and bar a worldy goal by Gylfi Sigurdsson, it was not much.
PAUL PREDICTS: 2-0 (9/1 with Sky Bet)
I thought Southampton were good against Everton and the one thing they are is good at the back, and on Sunday they scored goals. But Man City are just relentless and even on Sunday they just kept going and going and going and in the end they just nicked the win. So I am going to go 3-0.
PAUL PREDICTS: 3-0 (13/2 with Sky Bet)
I think I would play Peter Crouch in this game as every set play, Liverpool are all over the place. But going forward, they are good. I do not go against Stoke too often at home, but I think Liverpool will win this game 3-1
PAUL PREDICTS: 1-3 (10/1 with Sky Bet)
