I returned to winning ways in Premier League predictions on Boxing Day, beating Oscar Hayes by a score of 6-5. Strangely, despite getting relatively good scores, there was not a correct score in sight, as I got six correct results and Oscar got five correct results. Here’s how the leaderboard now looks…

  1. Mitch Clarke – 7
  2. Tom Malley, Kieran Rawnsley, Dan Moran, Josh Pound, Kallum Mehta – 6
  3. Olly (average) – 5.9
  4. Felipe Alviar-Baquero, Laith Amiry, Harry Blacknell, Oscar Hayes – 5
  5. My Dad, Josh Nicholson, Mark Lawrenson, FIFA 16 – 4
  6. Benjamin Wills, Jason Roberts – 3
  7. Kyle Goldsmith, Thomas Fletcher – 2
  • Olly’s Total = 107
  • Guests’ Total = 83

With the hectic Christmas schedule, you can imagine that it’s quite hard to find guests for Premier League predictions in such a short space of time. So I’ve cheated again for this gameweek, and am taking on Paul Merson, who does predictions for Sky Sports. Obviously I have not spoken to Paul personally, but they are on the Sky Sports website, along with his reasons behind the predictions. Here’s how we thought the games would pan out…
