Where to start on this week’s Premier League Predictions? Let’s go for the bad news for last week’s guest challenger Kyle Goldsmith, who only scored a new record low of two points last week by getting just two results correct. I’m sure he’ll want me to move on as swiftly as possible, and he could be back later on in the season to try and better his score. I got six points last week after guessing two correct results and two correct scores. This is how the leaderboard now looks:

  1. Mitch Clarke – 7
  2. Tom Malley, Olly (average) – 6
  3. Felipe Alviar-Baquero – 5
  4. My Dad – 4
  5. Benjamin Wills, Jason Roberts – 3
  6. Kyle Goldsmith – 2
  • Olly’s Total = 39
  • Guests’ Total = 30

This week’s challenger is Thomas Fletcher, who doesn’t actually support an English team, but Italian side AC Milan. Will this prove to be an advantage of disadvantage? He was lucky enough to go to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, watching the third place play-off and meeting a host of the BBC team. Fletch often tests me on my football knowledge, playing Who Wants To Be A Football Millionaire or Guess The Player, but can I beat him at Premier League predictions? Here are our guesses for this week’s fixtures…
