Burnley face a tough test as they seek to bounce back drubbing at Manchester City last weekend, but Chelsea need a win here to keep pace with Liverpool.
After a difficult start to season, the Clarets are unbeaten in three of their last four but three of those games came against sides outside the traditional ‘Big Six’.
Chelsea therefore will be a real test, especially seeing as the Blues are yet to lose this season in all competitions.
Although Burnley will work Chelsea hard like they did against Manchester United in early September, I can see a comfortable away win here.
Prediction: Burnley 0-2 Chelsea
Jake predicts: Burnley 1-3 Chelsea
Result: Burnley 0-4 Chelsea
Arsenal are flying at the minute and seem unstoppable across all competitions with ELEVEN straight wins, making this a tough looking home match for Crystal Palace.
I can just see one result coming here because Palace have taken just a single point from their four home games so far without scoring a single goal. That sort of form is atrocious, especially coming into a fixture like this but as its a London derby, all form goes out of window like with any other derby.
Arsenal meanwhile haven’t kept a clean sheet on their league travels so far, which makes me suspect that we will see one of two things here.
Either Palace will score their first home goal of season or the Gunners will keep a clean sheet.
I am ultimately leaning towards the former because of Arsenal’s poor away defence but the North Londoners will still win.
Prediction: Crystal Palace 1-2 Arsenal
Jake predicts: Crystal Palace 2-3 Arsenal
Result: Crystal Palace 2-2 Arsenal
Manchester United seem to have found some new confidence in recent games as they meet an in form Everton side.
Although United lost on Tuesday to Juventus by a single goal, they should take heart from that performance against a Cristiano Ronaldo side. To achieve that sort of defeat after a difficult run of form in past month is incredible and if repeat that here, then Everton are in for a real test.
The Toffees however have won their last three with two clean sheets, of which both came at home. Add in the fact that they have scored in all but one game so far this season then we should definitely see goals.
Given that both teams are dangling around edges of top ten, a draw wouldn’t be bad for either but must start winning more if are to challenge the top six.
Prediction: Manchester United 1-1 Everton
Jake predicts: Manchester United 1-2 Everton
Result: Manchester United 2-1 Everton
