Paul Merson's predictions: Chelsea and Everton to both record wins
Last Updated: 11/09/16 10:29am
Sky Sports' football pundit Paul Merson is back with another round of Premier League predictions.
The Magic Man guessed seven correct results from the weekend's action before the international break, but unfortunately failed to get a perfect score.
Don't forget, it's a bumper £1m jackpot in Saturday's Super 6 so read on to get Merson's tips...
Merson's previous predictions
|Spurs 1-1 Liverpool||2-1|
|West Brom 0-0 Middlesbrough||1-1|
|Man City 3-1 West Ham||2-0|
|Crystal Palace 1-1 Bournemouth||2-1|
|Everton 1-0 Stoke||2-1|
|Chelsea 3-0 Burnley||2-0|
|Leicester 2-1 Swansea||3-0|
|Watford 1-3 Arsenal||1-2|
|Southampton 1-1 Sunderland||2-0|
|Hull 0-1 Man Utd||0-2|
I can see Swansea struggling this season and think Chelsea's 100 per cent record continues this weekend.
The Swans have sold their best players and haven't really bought in top quality replacements.
They have had a couple of bad results since beating Burnley on the opening day and I think this will be comfortable for Antonio Conte's side.
PAUL PREDICTS: 0-3 (Sky Bet odds 11/1)
Sunderland were very unlucky not to win at Southampton, but when they went 1-0 up I felt they went a little too negative.
I know David Moyes is looking for his first victory but I don't think it comes against Everton, who are my dark horses this year.
Ross Barkley will be champing at the bit to make sure he gets going, and it's only a matter of time before the goals start coming for Romelu Lukaku.
Sunderland will play into their hands and I think it's an away win for Ronald Koeman's side.
PAUL PREDICTS: 0-2 (Sky Bet odds 8/1)
Sergio Aguero is an absolutely massive miss for Man City. I know people say they have so much money and can afford to sign anyone, but he is one player they will struggle to replace. He is their best player by a million miles.
It will be interesting to see how John Stones gets on against Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Stones has the potential to be a top player but he's inexperienced and is going up against someone who has been there, done it and got the t-shirt.
We saw what Zlatan did to a player like Ryan Shawcross on his England debut when he was playing for Sweden.
I expect Man Utd to just pip this game without Aguero.
PAUL PREDICTS: 2-1 (Sky Bet odds 8/1)
The Jack Wilshere factor will make a difference for Bournemouth because even if he can only last 70 minutes against West Brom, it will get the crowd up for it.
I usually do like the Baggies, and I know they don't score many goals under Tony Pulis, but I just feel they are such a threat from set-pieces.
If they can build pressure I think they'll score one, but it won't be enough.
PAUL PREDICTS: 2-1 (Most popular Super 6 prediction: 2-1)
Middlesbrough have started the season very well and Crystal Palace have been all over the place, but I'm tipping the visitors to grab a point at the Riverside.
They have bought well and the firepower up front is much improved, so they should cause problems with their pace on the break.
I have played at Boro and the fans will be tearing at their team to attack, and that could play into Palace's hands on the counter.
PAUL PREDICTS: 1-1 (Most popular Super 6 prediction: 1-1)
I don't typically go against Stoke at home because they are a difficult team to beat, but they need to get their campaign up and running.
Tottenham had a fantastic result there last season after they scored early in the game, but the addition of Wilfried Bony brings something different to the table for Stoke.
PAUL PREDICTS: 1-1 (Most popular Super 6 prediction: 1-2)
This is a cup final for Burnley. I know it's early in the season, but this would have been one of the fixtures they earmarked at the start of the campaign as three points in their bid for survival.
Hull may be a bit down after doing so well against Man Utd and conceding late, and I think they will get edged out again on Saturday.
PAUL PREDICTS: 1-0 (Most popular Super 6 prediction: 1-1)
There should be goals in this game. Both teams will fancy three points, but home advantage should make the difference for the Hammers.
They need to get the win in my opinion too because they haven't started the season brilliantly and a defeat here would point at a bottom-half finish.
PAUL PREDICTS: 2-1 (Most popular Super 6 prediction: 2-0)
I fancy Arsenal at home on Saturday and I say that because I'm going by what Southampton did at Old Trafford a few weeks ago.
They looked very weak up front and I don't see them causing Arsenal any problems when they attack. It should be a clean sheet for Petr Cech.
PAUL PREDICTS: 2-0 (Most popular Super 6 prediction: 2-0)
Liverpool have been so up and down already, and it depends which team turns up on Saturday.
Against Tottenham they missed a load of chances and should have won the game. To their credit they got a great win at Arsenal but then dropped three points at Burnley, so they need to get some consistency.
Of the two, I think we'll see a performance closer to the one we saw at the Emirates. They have the players going forward and Leicester will be a bit cagey.
PAUL PREDICTS: 2-1 (Sky Bet odds 7/1)
