Everton to beat Chelsea as Jeff Stelling provides his Super 6 predictions
Last Updated: 16/01/16 3:02pm
Jeff Stelling provides us with his advice for this weekend's Soccer Saturday Super 6, with £250,000 up for grabs in the free-to-play game.
The Soccer Saturday host thinks Everton can upset Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and predicts wins for Manchester City, Southampton and West Ham.
Here's what Jeff makes of the most popular predictions so far...
Bournemouth v Norwich
Most popular prediction: 2-1 (33%)
Jeff says: I think there will be goals in this one as both sides are defensively vulnerable. Norwich have conceded 18 goals in their last seven away games and have lost six of those. Bournemouth will be disappointed by the midweek defeat by West Ham but I can't separate them so I'm going for a draw.
Jeff predicts: 1-1
Chelsea v Everton
Most popular prediction: 2-1 (26%)
Jeff says: I still think many people are making their predictions based on how Chelsea should perform as opposed to how they are performing. In their last five games they've drawn three and had two wins, neither of them convincing and also struggled to beat Scunthorpe in the FA Cup. West Brom were the better side for long periods on Wednesday. Everton are a potent force now and have real quality about them. They've lost on their last two visits to Stamford Bridge to a goal in the 89th and 90th minutes but I can see them winning this one.
Jeff predicts: 1-2
Man City v Crystal Palace
Most popular prediction: 2-0 (30%)
Jeff says: I'll go with the majority. City drew a blank in midweek, only the fourth goalless draw in 99 Premier League matches at the Etihad. Palace are strong but appear to have lost their mojo going forward. They are definitely missing Yannick Bolasie's influence. Palace have not conceded more than one goal away from home this season but that record will go out of the window on Saturday.
Jeff predicts: 2-0

Newcastle v West Ham
Most popular prediction: 1-2 (26%)
Jeff says: This is a hard one to call. Newcastle are not playing West Ham at the right time. West Ham have players coming back from injury and are looking good. Dimitri Payet is in great form and Enner Valencia is real quality. There was a lot to like about Newcastle in midweek against Manchester United. Jonjo Shelvey is a good signing and shows their ambition to remain a Premier League side. There's bound to be goals in this one and I'm going for 2-2.
Jeff predicts: 2-2
Southampton v West Brom
Most popular prediction: 2-1 (24%)
Jeff says: There has hardly been a goal glut with only three goals in the last five meetings between these teams - and one of those was a penalty. Saints got back to winning ways against off-colour Watford. They now have options to play Graziano Pelle and Ronald Koeman has shown he's prepared to make changes. The Baggies don't score many away - only eight goals - but that has returned 13 points. I just feel that after the win against Arsenal at St Mary's and the Watford success Southampton are back on a roll at home.
Jeff predicts: 1-0
Bristol City v Middlesbrough
Most popular prediction: 0-2 (33%)
Jeff says: I'll go with the 33% here. Boro are flying. They are five points clear in the Sky Bet Championship and have kept nine consecutive clean sheets in the league. They didn't play well at Brentford on Tuesday but got the result. City, meanwhile, have made a major mistake in sacking Steve Cotterill. He broke every record in the book last season when City won promotion from League 1. It's harsh to say the least. There's only one winner for me.
Jeff predicts: 0-2
