This Arsenal apologist never ceases to amaze me. Arsenal will have a comfortable win against Villa but United will draw with Fulham?! How did you figure that Paul? United are far better than Arsenal, mind you. Just look at the table.

Stoke are normally poor away and have zero chance of stopping City on their travels in my book. 4-0+ obliteration - Aguero with two, Silva with one, Super Mario with another - Silva will set them up magically At St James Park, Newcastle should win. They're capable of making Europe if they can find their early form because I see Chelsea and Arsenal dropping places. 2-0, Ba getting both Everton will be a draw I think. Goalless since Swansea keep a lot of clean sheets and Everton have forgotton how to score. United should thrash'em as much as I'd love Fulham to rob them of points, despise the mancs. 3-0 or 4-0, Rooney scoring two, Nani with one, Jones nicking one from a corner maybe? QPR have had some bad days but anyone who beats Stoke at Brittania can beat Sunderland, home or away. Merse has it bang on I feel for Wigan, the way they play deserves better than where they are atm. But this is my club we're talking about so anything less than victory is unacceptable even though we have a tendency not to beat the small teams. Merse is bang on again I think. Call me crazy - Andy Carroll will start the game and knock one in with his head in the first half/early second half, and Suárez will dance around the defenders and add the second late on. Hate Chelsea with a passion and Tottenham are my favourite cockney club. Want Spurs to take all the points and I think they will but I think Merse is wrong this time - it's gonna be tight but Spurs will win, in the same fashion as we did against the blues with a late winner. 3-2 i think - Adebayor will open the scoring, Lampard will equalise from the spot, Chelsea take the lead with Torres, Bale will equalise, a Chelsea player gets sent off like they always do then Van the Man will bang in the injury time winner. I do love it when Chelsea lose, hence all the detail, apologies for rambling on Come on the mighty reds!

I think merse has the Blackburn/Bolton one right, but I want Bolton to win. If Rovers lose, maybe the owners wil come to their senses - a team who loses at home to the bottom team really need a new manager. I do like McCarthy and want Wolves to win and think Merse has this one right. Definetely has the Arsenal game right - if not 3-0 then it will be more and RVP will get two at least. Villa have just been poor recently

I am very surprised no one has mentioned James Mc Carthy as a possible transfer target for the major clubs after a very good 2nd half performance against Chelsea at the weekend, some of the passes where reminiscent of a young Paul Scholes. I would have him at United in January

.... if you can't win at Wigan, you can't win at Tottenham ....... unless you're Chelski - 1-3.

As much as i would like to agree with Mers i cant. I dont think it will be that easy for tottenham. Chelsea are still a top 4 side and can beat anybody as proven against Man City. I hope Spurs do win but I would take a draw. The only advantage Spurs can hope for is Terry to be injured and Luiz plays. Drogba always does well against Spurs so hopefully he wont play but im sure he will as torres wont start. So im hoping for a 2-1 win for Spurs but i think it will finish 2-2
