Preview the weekend round of matches as the Ambassador for Betfair, The former French international predicted.
Southampton v Man United
“This is a crucial match. United want to move forward, but if they draw or lose people will say that the win against Liverpool was an accident. It’s all about continuity. We can score goals and if we keep a clean sheet we are going to win the game. It’s as simple as that; Prediction: 0-2.”
Chelsea v Leicester
“Chelsea’s last match was a shock. I said recently that Mendy is the best goalkeeper in the world but those mistakes cost you a lot, he knows, he’s a world-class player. Leicester is struggling, I don’t know what’s going on. I see Chelsea winning because they will want to fix that humiliation; Prediction: 2-0.”
Brighton v Leeds
“Brighton is on fire and I have to congratulate them and Danny Welbeck for the work they are doing. Leeds will be flying high, but they could still be celebrating their result against Chelsea and Brighton will be going for the win; Prediction: 2-1.”
Man City v Crystal Palace
“This is going to be a great game. I’m excited for this one, normally we’d just say City is going to win but this is the kind of game where anything can happen. Patrick Vieira is doing an amazing job, and he’s got really talented players everywhere, they have no fear. I can see lots of goals. I have to back City because of the way they came back and the spirit they showed against Newcastle, they showed character instead of just tactics, they showed their personality. It will be an explosive game; Prediction: 3-2”
Liverpool v Bournemouth
“Liverpool are now in survival mode and they can’t lose against Bournemouth. They haven’t started well and this is one they have to win; Prediction: 3-0.”
Brentford v Everton
“Brentford will be disappointed to lose at the last minute against Fulham. It’s getting tougher for Everton, I feel like every team they play is a completely different challenge for them. I don’t see Everton winning away; Prediction: 1-1.”
Arsenal v Fulham
“This is going to be an explosive game. Both sides like to play football. Mitrovic can upset Arsenal. Saliba is doing an amazing job, their defense is getting better but Mitrovic is dangerous. Arsenal goes into this in great form, I don’t think it will be an easy game though. Fulham can upset Arsenal, but I think at home they will have just enough; Prediction: 2-1”
Wolves v Newcastle
“Allan Saint-Maximin is on fire. They were impressive against City, but that’s what they’re all about. They’re a team that likes to play, they have the fans behind them, and staying up last season was a massive achievement, they don’t want to make the same mistakes. They’ve got a plan and the manager has the trust. I don’t see why they can’t win away against Wolves; Prediction: 0-1.”
Aston Villa v West Ham
“I feel sad for West Ham, I’m sure this isn’t what David Moyes was hoping for at the start of the season. They’ve had some weird and difficult games, starting against City, it’s not been easy. If they lose this they will be in a bit of a crisis. Aston Villa has been up and down, and they need the win too. Prediction: 2-1.”
Nottingham Forest v Spurs
“This will be a tough game, going to Forest won’t be easy, their fans will be right behind them. I can see the Spurs winning and it being an ugly game. Conte has got them winning when they aren’t playing well, and I can see the same in this one. Prediction: 1-2.”
