Bizarre-O-Land schedule this week. There are a couple of FA Cup games going on and just screwing up everything. There are 4 Premier League games on, of which THREE are being played at the same time. GREAT scheduling guys, really not helping out the common man trying to watch a few matches.
SPARKNOTES: Merseyside controls the EPL this weekend.
Hull City v. Swansea
Battle at the bottom. Swansea has shown “improvement” and they’ll play well when you forget about them. But they are the favorites in this game, so I expect them to blow it here. 1-1 tie.
Everton v. West Brom
Goodison Park, 10:00am
This is a pretty tasty game. Just two blue collar teams filled with grit gonna slug it out. I see everyone getting along nicely until the 30th minute, then things get personal. Both teams lost heart breakers and I feel West Brom was looking ahead last week. 2-1 West Brom.
Bournemouth v. West Ham
Dean Court, 10:00
West Ham looked completely pedestrian against Chelsea last weekend. Somehow they squeezed off a goal against the run of play giving me enough evidence to name them heavy favorites. Bournemouth is still drunk from drawing level with United. 2-0 West Ham.
Liverpool v. Burnley
Liverpool should control this game for a full 90 mins. If not, the press has a right to talk shit. Burnley let Swansea score 3 on them last weekend. That’s brutal, no way they fix their defensive problems. Also, Liverpool is home. 3-0 Liverpool.
**Some Extra Curricular**
Chelsea v. Manchester United
Stamford Bridge, 3:45pm
BIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIGGG game here. Manchester is making a decent showing in English Cups this year. Also Mourinho coming to the Bridge, I mean the guy is a legend. However, we all know that the Blues will be all business for this one and sharp as a knife. Very excited for this. 3-1 Chelsea.
Last Week’s Comparison: I’m getting pretty good at this. In my heart I knew United was gonna blow it but went against my better judgement. Won’t happen again coach.
