TOTTENHAM TO BEAT CARDIFF
I was quite impressed with Cardiff’s performande against Burnley last weekend and thought they were unlucky to lose against Sean Dyche’s side. However, it looks like it is going to be a long season for Neil Warnock’s men and that will be evident in a long afternoon at Wembley. Spurs will be motivated knowing they can take advantage of one of Liverpool or Manchester City dropping points over the weekend, if not both.
MANCHESTER UNITED TO BEAT NEWCASTLE
Its not looking great for Mourinho at the moment is it? It was another below-par performance at Old Trafford against Valencia on Tuesday but surely they will get back to winning ways at home to Newcastle on Saturday evening.
Rafa Benitez and his players look like they are in for a tough season and the situation with the ownership at the club can not be helping things. Newcastle have played and lost to a lot of the big teams so far this season and I don’t see anything changing this weekend, despite United’s poor start.
CHELSEA TO BEAT SOUTHAMPTON
This was the trickiest selection out of the lot because my mind does go back to last season when Southampton ran Chelsea close, leading 2-0 before eventually losing 3-2. Chelse have started the season like a house on fire and they look like they are really taking on their new manager’s methods already. I do think Mark Hughes’ team will make it hard for them to play but with Eden Hazard in the form that he is in at the moment, I don’t see anything other than an away win.
