Monday afternoon acca
The festive period in the Premier League ends with Gameweek 20 – a punishing finish for most teams, who played on Saturday or Sunday.
Our acca for this gameweek concentrates on this afternoon’s major matches. Leaving out Middlesbrough v Leicester which kicks off proceedings.
Here is our thinking behind a potentially glorious Bank Holiday Monday afternoon!
West Brom vs Hull:
Prediction: West Brom Win
Rationale: Hull have lost their last 7 away matches and failed to score in the last 5. While West Brom are playing well, beating Southampton away in their last game. Can’t see Hull getting anything more than 0 points here.
Everton vs Southampton:
Prediction: Everton Win
Rationale: Southampton are struggling at the moment. They are also without their star man Virgil van Dijk due to picking up a red card in the last game. Everton are still unbeaten at home this season so will be a big challenge for a weakened Southampton especially as Charlie Austin is still out. We think it will be super tight, but Everton will nick it.
Man City vs Burnley
Prediction: Sergio Agüero to score anytime
Rationale: Man City will be looking to get back to winning ways again and Aguero will be looking to get back to scoring ways after some time out through suspension. He has already netted 10 this season and you would expect him to get at least a couple against Burnley.
Sunderland vs Liverpool
Prediction : Jermain Defoe to score anytime
Rationale: Defoe has scored 9 so far this season, which is more than Firmino (6), Mane (8) and Lallana (7). Even if Sunderland don’t come away with any points from this game there is still a good chance Defoe will grab a goal.
West Ham vs Man Utd
Prediction: Zlatan Ibrahimovic to score anytime
Rationale: This is going to be a very tight game. West Ham were in a good run of form with 3 wins on the bounce until the lost to Leicester at the weekend. With united leaving it late to turn over Boro. Jose Mourinho’s side have won 5 straight league games for the first time since April 2015. The last time united played West Ham in the League cup it was a 4-1 thrashing to United. Zlatan is bound to be on the scoresheet and would have been in United’s last game if it wasn’t for the questionable disallowed goal.
