See who the Magic Man is tipping to win this weekend...
Swansea v Liverpool - Saturday from 11.30am, live on Sky Sports 1 HD
I can't see anything other than an away win. Liverpool are playing very well and are dominant at the moment. Take away the Burnley result and they have been outstanding.
It's hard for Swansea, for a lot of teams if they come 17th it's been a good season, that's how tight it is down there. But I am a great believer that you stick with your manager you had at the start of the season.
PAUL PREDICTS: 0-3 (Sky Bet odds 9/1)
Hull v Chelsea - Super 6 game, Saturday, 3pm
Chelsea really need to get back to winning ways. I couldn't believe what I was watching against Arsenal last weekend, it was unbelievable.
I wouldn't be surprised if they drew this because Chelsea are all over the place at the back and they need desperately need John Terry back. I'm going to go for a Chelsea win just because of what happened to Hull against Arsenal in their last home game when they were beaten 4-1.
PAUL PREDICTS: 1-2 (Sky Bet odds 7/1)
Sunderland v West Brom - Super 6 game, Saturday, 3pm
You'd have to say this is a must-win game for Sunderland. They had a disappointing result last week and if you're 2-0 up at home and can't hold on that is worrying.
West Brom have found some form and they are a dogged team under Tony Pulis, who is a good manager. Sunderland will have to have a go as they are the home side and I think they might get caught on the break.
PAUL PREDICTS: 1-1 (Sky Bet odds 9/2)
Watford v Bournemouth - Super 6 game, Saturday, 3pm
Which Watford will turn up? The one that beat Manchester United and West Ham or the one that got beaten at Burnley? It's all about attitude, some teams think they can turn up and win, but it doesn't work like that. That's why people love this league, because anybody can beat anybody.
Bournemouth got a decent result against Everton and Jack Wilshere looked good. He is only going to get better as well as he plays more.
I don't see much between these two sides. I think it will be a good game that ends in a draw.
PAUL PREDICTS: 2-2 (Sky Bet odds 12/1)
West Ham v Middlesbrough - Super 6 game, Saturday, 3pm
This is the type of game that makes Super 6 very difficult! You just don't know. This could be any score either way. West Ham are really struggling, their defence is all over the place and they are not playing to the standards they were last season.
It was bad business to sell James Tomkins. He might not be the difference, but he makes a difference. He can play at centre-half or full-back, he is comfortable on the ball and at the moment they have no defenders. They sold him for just £10m, it wasn't a huge fee.
Middlesbrough are lacking pace and have become a bit predictable. But if they can turn in a performance like they did in the second half against Tottenham last week when the game was lost, then they have more of a chance. It's a really tough one to call.
PAUL PREDICTS: 1-1 (Sky Bet odds 5/1)
Manchester United v Stoke - Sunday, 12pm
I can't see anything but a Man Utd win. Stoke are all over the place from set plays, that used to be a strength for them and now they are letting in goals from set plays against Crystal Palace and West Brom.
Man Utd scored three goals against Leicester from set plays, so that tells you everything. They had to put in a performance against Leicester and they did. They were under pressure and they played well.
PAUL PREDICTS: 3-0 (Sky Bet odds 13/2)
Leicester v Southampton - Sunday, 2.15pm
This should be a good game. Saints are a decent team and ripped West Ham to shreds last week.
Leicester were well beaten at United and seem to have their eggs in the Champions League basket. They look good in the group and will then be hoping for a good draw. Southampton are still an under-estimated side and I fancy them to win this.
PAUL PREDICTS: 1-2 (Sky Bet odds 10/1)
Tottenham v Manchester City - Super Sunday from 1.30pm, live on Sky Sports 1 HD
Which City will turn up? My worry with the manager was how he would cope over here. In Spain and Germany the big sides turn up for games and half the time they wipe the floor with the opposition.
But what was John Stones doing on the bench against Celtic? Aleksandar Kolarov was at centre-half and then the ball comes in, he misses it like an eight-year-old and they concede a third.
I thought Swansea were unlucky last week in the first half against City and they will miss Kevin De Bruyne.
I think Spurs will get a result. They are a good team and are also unbeaten. They haven't played great but they have had some tricky games so you have to give them credit.
PAUL PREDICTS: 2-2 (Sky Bet odds 11/1)
Burnley v Arsenal - Super Sunday from 4.15pm, live on Sky Sports 1 HD
This is Arsenal. They were irresistible against Chelsea and Basel but this, on a Sunday afternoon in Burnley, will tell you if they have a chance of winning the Premier League.
It should be 4-0. Burnley shouldn't be able to live with Arsenal if they pass the ball around like they have in the last few games.
But that won't happen. Burnley will set up 4-5-1 and make it very difficult. If Arsenal get the first goal it sets them up but we have seen it all before, which is why I wouldn't be shocked if Burnley won.
If Arsenal win this then at the start of the October they are players in the title race, but if they don't then it's the Arsenal we know from recent seasons.
PAUL PREDICTS: 0-2 (Sky Bet odds 5/1)
Everton v Crystal Palace
Palace seem to have turned the corner and are flying at the moment, but if they didn't score so soon after Sunderland went 2-0 up last weekend I don't think they would have got back in the game. It was a disappointing result for Everton against Bournemouth and they will be looking to bounce back.
There's not much between Romelu Lukaku and Christian Benteke if both sides play to their strengths, but Lukaku has looked bright recently and Benteke is just starting out with a new club.
PAUL PREDICTS: 2-1
