Premier League Predictions Week 10 vs Laith Amiry

1408279739567_lc_galleryImage_Football_Liverpool_v_Sout

After taking on three of my friends in the last three weeks, I thought it was time to change it up a bit on Premier League Predictions this time around, and take on perhaps my toughest challenger yet. But before that, let’s look back at last week when I took on Kieran Rawnsley. I got two correct results and two correct scores, whilst Kieran got four correct results and one correct score, meaning that we both finished on six points – the second draw of the season. I know he was very keen to beat me, and very nearly did, but he could be back on the blog later on in the season to try and do so. He does however move into joint second place on the leaderboard:

  1. Mitch Clarke – 7
  2. Tom Malley, Kieran Rawnsley, Olly (average) – 6
  3. Felipe Alviar-Baquero – 5
  4. My Dad – 4
  5. Benjamin Wills, Jason Roberts – 3
  6. Kyle Goldsmith, Thomas Fletcher – 2
  • Olly’s Total = 52
  • Guests’ Total = 38

So, who is this toughest opponent yet? Well, this week I am taking on Laith Amiry from Weekend Football who has to be one of the best betters in the country. Last October, he made William Hill pay out £181,125 after he won a series of accumulators – one individual fivefold which Laith put £50 into returned a whopping £141,750. Call it luck or call it genius, you can read the incredible story and how the winnings we were earned here. I’ve been beaten just once in the previous nine weeks of Premier League predictions, but I’m most definitely the underdog on this occasion, and Laith has to be the favourite to knock Mitch Clarke off the top of the leaderboard. I wonder what the odds are?! Many thanks to Weekend Football for organising it, and you can check out their site at: http://weekendfootball.co.uk/ or follow them on Twitter: @weekendfootball. So without further ado, here are my and Laith’s predictions for this week:

Aston Villa vs Swansea City – Saturday 3pm

  • Olly’s Prediction: 0-1
  • Laith’s Prediction: 1-1
  • Final Score: 1-2

Aston Villa have not won a league game since the opening day of the season and have lost a league-high seven matches.

Leicester City vs Crystal Palace – Saturday 3pm

  • Olly’s Prediction: 2-1
  • Laith’s Prediction: 2-1
  • Final Score: 1-0

Leicester have scored and conceded in all nine of their league games this season, but did not manage to hit the back of the net in either game against Crystal Palace last season.

Norwich City vs West Bromwich Albion – Saturday 3pm

  • Olly’s Prediction: 0-0
  • Laith’s Prediction: 1-1
  • Final Score: 0-1

West Brom are looking for back-to-back league wins for the first time since September 2014.

Stoke City vs Watford – Saturday 3pm

  • Olly’s Prediction: 2-1
  • Laith’s Prediction: 2-0
  • Final Score: 0-2

Watford’s tally of six league goals is the lowest of any side in the top five tiers of English football. AFC Telford United, of the National League North, are the next highest-ranked side to have scored as few goals.

West Ham United vs Chelsea – Saturday 3pm

  • Olly’s Prediction: 1-2
  • Laith’s Prediction: 2-1
  • Final Score: 2-1

West Ham have won their two London derbies so far this season, against Arsenal and Crystal Palace, but have lost their last three at home.

Arsenal vs Everton – Saturday 5:30pm

  • Olly’s Prediction: 2-1
  • Laith’s Prediction: 2-0
  • Final Score: 2-1

Olivier Giroud has scored his last four goals for Arsenal as a substitute. The Frenchman has also scored four goals in his last four league and cup games against Everton.

Sunderland vs Newcastle United – Sunday 12pm

  • Olly’s Prediction: 1-1
  • Laith’s Prediction: 1-1
  • Final Score: 3-0

A ninth Premier League win over Newcastle would represent Sunderland’s best record in the competition against any club.

Bournemouth vs Tottenham Hotspur – Sunday 2:05pm

  • Olly’s Prediction: 0-1
  • Laith’s Prediction: 1-2
  • Final Score: 1-5

This is the first league fixture between Bournemouth and Tottenham. Their only previous meeting came in the FA Cup fifth round in 1957 when Bournemouth won 3-1 at home.

Manchester City vs Manchester United – Sunday 2:05pm

  • Olly’s Prediction: 2-2
  • Laith’s Prediction: 3-2
  • Final Score: 0-0

Manchester City have won six of the last eight Manchester derbies in the league, which is as many wins as they managed in the previous 42 meetings.

Liverpool vs Southampton – Sunday 4:15pm

  • Olly’s Prediction: 2-1
  • Laith’s Prediction: 3-1
  • Final Score: 1-1

Liverpool have drawn eight of their last nine games in all competitions.

I’ll share the results on Twitter after the weekend’s fixtures and also include them in next week’s Premier League predictions. If you want to take part or share your predictions, just leave a comment below!
