Premier League Predictions: Liverpool to hammer final nail in Ten Hag coffin as Man Utd thumped; Poch respite as Chelsea win; that Friday feeling for Tottenham

TEAMtalk Predictions

TT take on Robbie Savage, F365 and Tipstrr in the latest Prem Predictions

It’s a massive weekend of top-flight football as we go head-to-head with Robbie Savage, F365 and Tipstrr in our Premier League Predictions challenge, as Erik ten Hag’s time could finally be up at Manchester United, while Mauricio Pochettino gets a welcome three points at Chelsea and Tottenham sweep Nottingham Forest aside.

Planet Sport’s Robbie Savage will join us ahead of every matchweek to give his thoughts on the big games and match predictions. Two more titles from the Planet Sport network have also joined the fun, too – Football365, our sister football brand, and Tipstrr, home to the world’s best-verified tipsters.

The action gets underway with a Friday night clash between Nottingham Forest and Tottenham, who looked back to their best last time out against Newcastle.

There are five games on Saturday but no early kick-off, with Bournemouth and struggling Chelsea hosting Luton and Sheffield United respectively, while Manchester City take on Crystal Palace at The Etihad and Newcastle welcome Fulham. The late game on Saturday sees Sean Dyche return to his old club as Everton head to Burnley.

Sunday’s action starts with Arsenal hosting Brighton, while in-form Aston Villa travel to Brentford and West Ham face Wolves at the London Stadium.

The Super Sunday showdown is just that as Liverpool take on a Manchester United side seemingly in freefall after their heavy loss to Bournemouth last weekend before they crashed out of Europe on Tuesday night.

And, once again, there are some differences of opinion across the board, although everyone agrees that United will slump to defeat at Anfield, while Pochettino will get some respite at Chelsea as the Blues cut down Chris Wilder’s Blades.
