Arsenal v Swansea: Alexandre Lacazette
It seems as though Arsenal have finally found their shooting boots, especially after putting five past Everton last week. I’m not sure Swansea will have enough to get one over them at the Emirates, and they looked pretty poor against Man United in the League Cup in the week.
Should be nice and straight forward for Arsene Wenger, and I really like Lacazette, so I’m going with him to open up the scoring.
West Brom v Manchester City: Gabriel Jesus
I’m not sure how anyone can bet against City here. Yes, the goalless draw in 90 minutes didn’t flatter them midweek, but they’re on fire. I can’t see many teams stopping them, so I’m going with a thrashing.
There are almost too many players to choose from of Pep’s at the minute! But I’m going with Jesus, who looks like an unbelievable talent. Kevin de Bruyne would be my second choice, he’s on fire at the moment.
Bournemouth v Chelsea: Josh King
There’s going to be plenty of goals in this one, and I don’t think Bournemouth will go down without a fight. Chelsea will win it, but after watching them against Watford last weekend, it probably won’t be straightforward.
King is a player that has always impressed me, and though I wouldn’t go as far as to say he’ll walk all over Chelsea, it would be exciting if he got the first goal.
Brighton v Southampton: Tomer Hemed
Southampton are struggling to find the net, and although I found this one the toughest to predict this week, I’m backing Brighton to just pip them to a win. Last time they met in 2012 it went Brighton’s way… So who knows!
Also, Hemed returns from a three-game ban, so I’m going with him to come back to the Brighton side in style.

Leicester v Everton: Riyad Mahrez
I can’t see Everton winning this one. They’re obviously struggling this season, and although it’s a shame Ronald Koeman has gone, I can’t see them instantly getting back to winning ways. It’s a good opportunity for Leicester to take the three points.
It’s always nice to see Mahrez on the score-sheet too.
Burnley v Newcastle: Robbie Brady
We all know Burnley won’t make it easy for Newcastle at home, not a chance. This one will probably be pretty ugly, the City game was obviously hard last week, but they held Huddersfield and West Ham to draws at home recently, and they will do the same this weekend. And yes, I’m going for Robbie Brady to score… COYBIG and all that.
