The Premier League matches are coming thick and fast as Friday is a day of rest before we are back with a HUGE round of fixtures to kiss 2017 goodbye! In this blog, we are back to doing two write-ups and a Podcast Preview! We will be crunching the numbers, calling the nerds and making some money for you guys as we can all use some after the mess that is the holiday period. So without further adieu, let's get into EVERYONE's favorite preview.
Everton F.C. @ A.F.C. Bournemouth
Southampton F.C. @ Manchester United F.C. (-1.5)
Southampton [+1.5]: +105
Manchester United [-1.5]: -125
Nothing would make me happier than telling you guys Manchester United will lose, Lukaku will suck and José Mourinho will have a hilarious breakdown ending 2017, but sadly, it won't happen. It's been an awful week for Manchester United's opponents Southampton as they were smoked by Tottenham and lost their star man, Virgil van Dijk to Liverpool for an arm and a leg. With 12 goals conceded in their last five, it's hard to fathom that Southampton won't concede in this match, and against a United team who looked good going forward in the second half against Burnley, I think they will win by a couple of goals.
Official Prediction: 2-0 Manchester United
Swansea City A.F.C @ Watford F.C.
Ever since "cohones-gate" Watford has been on a slow drop down the table as players have been getting injured and Troy Deeney is back being a fucking moron as he was banned for three matches following an idiotic red card. When it comes to Swansea, they are dead. Every year there is one team by Christmas who look defeated and are on the road of no return, and this season it's Swansea. Since losing Gylfi Sigurðsson and Fernando Llorente they have looked lost, and Bony hasn't helped them as much as he should in front of goal. I will keep this short because Watford will win.
Offical Prediction: 1-0 Watford
