Predictions: Liverpool to edge tight Merseyside derby; immediate Ten Hag bounce for Man Utd; Leeds delight

Ben White, Jurgen Klopp, Frank Lampard, Bruno Fernandes - TEAMtalk Predictions

A massive weekend of action sees Liverpool host Everton, Man Utd travelling to Arsenal and a couple of exciting derbies – here’s what we expect to unfold in this week’s Premier League Predictions.

Jurgen Klopp’s side go into the match with Frank Lampard’s Toffees in tremendous spirits. Their 4-0 win over Manchester United on Tuesday night keeps their winning momentum going as the title race goes to the wire.

A defeat for Lampard and Co though will likely increase their relegation fears, and there’s some key games at the bottom this weekend.

However, the fun begins on Saturday lunchtime when Arsenal host Manchester United in a match critical to both sides’ top-four hopes.

Fourth spot is currently occupied by Tottenham – and their credentials face a big test against a resolute Brenford side. The match is sure to be a special occasion given the Christian Eriksen connection.

Elswhere, there’s some nice-looking derbies as Leicester host Aston Villa, Brighton face Southampton and Chelsea tackle West Ham.

And the action ends with a tasty-looking Monday Night Football as Crystal Palace host improving Leeds.

Taking us on this week is Glastonbury-based singer-songwriter and Tottenham fan, Rosie Smith. She is up against our man Rob – but how many will either get right in this week’s Premier League Predictions?

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

Rosie: I grew up watching football with my Grandad who’s Irish. He’s Irish but a huge Southampton fan so we always loved Robbie Keane which led to me watching Spurs every week.

TEAMtalk: Who have been your favourite five players for your club, or in general? (Historically or currently)

Rosie: Kane, Son, Keane, Deli Ali, Defoe

Son Heung-min, Harry Kane, Matt Doherty and Dejan Kuluveski celebrate


Top three finish for Spurs

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

Rosie: I think the current squad is the best it’s been in years. The link up play between Kane and Son is unbelievable and I strongly believe we can take third his season.

TEAMtalk: Have you got a soft spot for another team and why?

Rosie: Like I said earlier, Grandad is big Southampton fan. My Dad and my godfather used to take me to St Mary’s quite often and I had a bit of a crush on Walcott, until he moved to Arsenal obviously, lol.
