What is Patrice Evra Prediction for this week’s Premier League round of matches?
As an Ambassador for Betfair, the former Manchester United left-back previewed the weekend round of matches:
Arsenal v Spurs
‘This is a big one. Arsenal, people are saying they are title contenders and it’s time for them to show it. There isn’t a better chance than to show it against their enemy, Tottenham. Conte is a tactical genius and he will have a plan to spoil things for Arsenal. I can’t see either of them winning this. I think it will be a tight game.’’Prediction 1-1.
Liverpool v Brighton
“Brighton has just lost their manager and Liverpool at Anfield is never easy. I remember after the defeat against Napoli, Klopp said they have to reinvent themselves. The most difficult games always come after the international break. Brighton will be fresher but I think Liverpool will have enough in the end.” Prediction 2-1.
Fulham v Newcastle
“Mitrovic is on fire, he loves scoring goals. This is a difficult one to predict. I think coming off the back of the international break, Newcastle may suffer a little. I can see Fulham winning at home.” Prediction 1-0.
Southampton v Everton
“I think Frank Lampard and his team got so much confidence after drawing with Liverpool, that’s helped them. I think Everton will get a much-needed win on the road.” Prediction 0-1.
Crystal Palace v Chelsea
“Even if they drew in his first game, I really believe in Potter and think he can work well if he gets the time. Vieira is doing a great job at Palace and I enjoy seeing how he has got them playing. This will be a good game and I think Chelsea will nick it.” Prediction 1-2.
Bournemouth v Brentford
“This is a difficult one, both sides are in a similar position and they have had some good and bad results. I can see this one being a draw.” Prediction 2-2.
West Ham v Wolves
“I feel David Moyes is under pressure at the moment, and at home, this is the kind of game that West Ham can’t even afford to draw. They have to get the win in this one and I think they will. Moyes can get them motivated.” Prediction 2-0.
Man City v Man United
“I think we will see goals in this one. Ten Had will want to impress the United fans. Winning a derby can give you a lot of credit. Guardiola will always want to destroy United. I expect a very good game, a really good derby and I expect Haaland to show himself, to make a statement that he is the best striker in the world. I expect Martinez and Varane to be up for the battle. It’s 50/50 for me.” Prediction 2-2.
Leeds v Aston Villa
“Aston Villa got a much-needed win last time out. Stephen Gerrard will want to build up momentum and more importantly consistency. I think they will surprise a few people and get a result away at Leeds.” Prediction 1-2.
Leicester v Forest
“The international break will have given Leicester and Brendan Rodgers some time to get back together, talk face to face. I feel like the players aren’t behind the manager. Something is broken and they need to reinvent themselves. Forest has nothing to lose in this one, I think they will be enthusiastic and they will see this as a game that they can win.” Prediction 0-1.
