Liverpool to beat West Ham
We’ve recruited really well this summer and I think we’ve strengthened the positions where last season we were a little short. West Ham on the other hand have a new manager and splashed the cash on a lot of different players and for that reason I think it’ll take them a while to gel with one another.
Spurs to beat Newcastle
It’s been a really difficult summer for Newcastle and Rafa given the issues they have at boardroom level. Rafa worked wonders last season, again with minimum budget, so without them improving too much ahead of the new campaign, I think it’ll be a long season for them. Spurs are the only side to have not recruited a player in this window, but their first XI is still very strong and I think they’ll have too much for Newcastle.
Man United to beat Leicester
I think Jose has cried it in for this game. Whether it’s been lack of signings or a scathing report on the club’s youngsters, he definitely isn’t happy – despite there not being a lot to moan about. Leicester were not exactly busy themselves, although securing a new contract for Jamie Vardy was a massive boost. I think united will win by the odd goal.
