Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Wow, what a wonderful day to drink Guinness and talk soccer. I mean this really is the ideal day for me. We have a full Premier League schedule this weekend to get you through the wild hangover everyone will have tomorrow (and probably Sunday).
SPARKNOTES: Liverpool v. City game of the week, Chelsea stay top, Arsene keeps his job.
West Brom v. Arsenal
The Hawthorns, 8:30am
Make or break for Arsene Wenger. If Arsenal wins I strongly believe that he keeps his job. Also, since apparently no Arsenal fan wants him around, I am rooting heavily for an Arsenal win here. 3-1 Arsenal.
Crystal Palace v. Watford
Selhurst Stadium, 11:00am
Pulling for Watford here. They’ve struggled to score all year but on the bright side – Palace can’t defend. This should be a low quality game in which I highly advise you skip. 0-0 tie.
Sunderland v. Burnley
Stadium of Light, 11:00am
I watched the Burnley v. Liverpool game last week and I was very much delighted by what I saw. Burnley was attacking the whole game and had signs of brilliance. Sunderland is in dead last so I could see Burnley winning “big” here. 2-0 Burnley.
Everton v. Hull
Goodison Park, 11:00am
Not what Hull wants here. They are in a desperate fight to stay up and Everton will make this day HELL for them. Lukaku is looking for a massive deal this summer and this should be easy picking for the big Belgian. 3-0 Everton.
Stoke v. Chelsea
The Britannia, 11:00am
Rain Drop, Drop Top, Chelsea keep the top spot. Stoke is a miserable place to play but I’m not concerned. A Diego Costa yellow card will happen and William with his new hairstyle has an assist. 3-1 Chelsea.
West Ham v. Leicester
London Stadium, 11:00 am
I really just do not understand Leicester. They make no sense whatsoever. I mean, they advanced to the final 8 teams of the Champions League (something any Arsenal fan would literally kill for just make it to) yet Leicester sucks it up in league play.
The only way to make sense is predict a loss. 2-0 West Ham.
Bournemouth v. Swansea
Dean Court, 1:30pm
Swansea has the worst defense in the league. An astonishing 61 goals have gone past these losers. Bournemouth haaaas to get some shots on net early and often. 2-1 Bournemouth.
Middlesbrough v. Man United
Riverside Stadium, 8:00am
Fun stat for you Middlesbrough has scored 19 goals this year. That is a tragedy, I’ve scored more goals drunk with my left foot then these “professionals” have all season. United will win so they can stay in 6th place. 1-0 United.
Tottenham v. Southampton
White Hart Lane, 10:15am
I love me an upset and I hate Sp*rs but it is just not to be. Harry Kane at home is just a magical thing. Should be a good fight but in the end it will be a convincing Sp*rs win. 2-0 Tottenham.
Man City v. Liverpool
The Etihad, 12:30pm
Game of the week. Liverpool shows some amazing stuff against quality teams. If they want to stay in the top 4 this is a must win for them. Of course Pep Guardiola will have his team ready and will be scoring easily. 3-2 Man City.
Last Week’s Comparison: Not the best week for me. I was thinking I could pull off 100% but I wasn’t even close.
