Predictions: Spurs to silence Grealish, Chelsea win, Man Utd v Leeds row

Jack Grealish during his Man City debut during the Community Shield

Our Premier League Predictions are back and we’re tipping Jack Grealish to suffer defeat on his Man City debut, wins for Chelsea and Leicester, but the big Manchester United v Leeds United clash has divided opinion.

Each week our writers take on a different band or artist by making their Premier League predictions, while you can join in the fun using the story comment facility (below) or Your Say forum.

Our first set of predictions for the 2021/22 season are from Keeya Keys, a big Barcelona and Newcastle fan. He is currently turning heads with his football-themed track ‘Haaland’.

But can he get the better of our man Marshy?

TEAMtalk: How did you come to support your teams and what are your favourite memories from your time as a fan?

Keeya: It’s a weird one cause I grew up supporting Newcastle due to my parents but started supporting Barcelona at around 14. I’ve always hated losing, but this plan has slightly backfired…

KeeyaMessi, Iniesta, Busquets, Neymar, Dani Alves 

TEAMtalk: What are your hopes for the season and what are your thoughts about the current side?

KeeyaWe need a new manager and need to shift out players who are past their best like Busquets, Pique, Sergi Roberto etc and we can be very exciting and free flowing. I need a Champions League final this year.
