Premier League fixtures predicted: Expert call results including Man Utd, Tottenham upsets | Football | Sport
The Premier League is back for match-day six of 38 this weekend and kicks off with Southampton’s visit of Bournemouth at St Mary’s in a south coast derby tonight.
The Cherries have never managed a victory away at the Saints of 15 attempts across all competitions and will be looking to rectify that this evening.
BT Sport have put their reputation on the line by trying to call every single fixture in the 2019/20 campaign – before a ball was even kicked – and ‘The Script’ is confident that Bournemouth’s barren run in Hampshire will continue.
‘The Script’ was generated using the help of football data and analysis experts Opta, Google and Squawka, picking the result of every match as well as key awards such as the Golden Boot and Golden Glove.
And the remainder of their predictions throw up some interesting outcomes, not least with Leicester tipped to overcome Tottenham in the early kick-off on Saturday, despite Brendan Rodgers’ side having lost at Manchester United last time out.
Champions Manchester City will bounce back at home to 20th-placed Watford after losing to Norwich City last weekend, according to ‘The Script’, while Manchester United are expected to be frustrated by West Ham, meaning they would go nine straight league games without a win on the road.
Arsenal are backed to thrash Aston Villa, putting six past the Villans in what would be the joint-largest margin of victory this term, while at the exact same time Chelsea are expected to end table-toppers Liverpool’s perfect start to the campaign at Stamford Bridge.
Elsewhere, Norwich are tipped to build on their win over City with a first away triumph while Wolves are being backed to claim a first win of the campaign away at Crystal Palace – but how true will BT Sport’s predictions prove to be?
