Diego Costa: Fired Chelsea to victory

Joe Seaward from Glass Animals fancies Hull to beat Man Utd this weekend, but the drummer has no worries about his beloved Chelsea facing Burnley. 

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

Last week, The Ramona Flowers frontman Steve Bird predicted one correct score and five results, while our James Marshment drew a blank on the scorelines but also guessed five results.

Taking on Mark Scott, the predictions for matchday three in the Premier League come from Glass Animals drummer Joe Seaward.

The band’s new album ‘How To Be A Human’ is out now.

Five from Glass Animals drummer Joe Seaward

1) How did you come to support your club and what are your favourite memories from your time as a fan?
I support Chelsea. My dad took me to see Chelsea versus Derby when I was nine years old; he’s a Tottenham fan, so I don’t know what he was thinking really. I’m just glad he didn’t take me to White Hart Lane. But Zola scored, so did Di Matteo and Tore Andre Flo and I was hooked. That was that.

2) Who have been your biggest heroes during your time supporting the club?
Gianfranco Zola, super Frank; Baba one, two Baba two, Baba three, Babayaro – Heeey Babayaro!

3) What do you make of the current team? What are your hopes for the season?
Antonio Conte seems to have had a positive impact. Its hard to know what will happen. I think the defence needs bolstering, I think with Kurt Zouma fit it’ll be OK. But if Eden Hazard gets back to his best anything is possible.

4) Everyone has a soft spot for another team. Who’s yours and why?
Barcelona. I could watch Barcelona all day. I went to Nou Camp last year, we were on tour and we got taken out to see a Champions League game. It was rad. Its quite a big place, the Nou Camp…

5) What’s going on with the band/for you as an artist at the moment?
Our second album, How To Be A Human Being, is out on Friday the 26th. So we will be touring around the world for the next few months, UK in October.
