  • StevieDay1983 changed the title to Premier League Predictions > Sep 17th - 19th

Newcastle United

They play poorer and poorer in these years. They were the twelfth in last season. Now they rank the nineteenth in the table of the League. They are not in form, getting 1W-2D-2L recently. If they do not adjust themselves, they are likely to degrade.  

 

Leeds United

They play poorly this season, which have not got any victory this season yet. In last game, they lose to Liverpool at 0-3. What’s worse, Pascal Struijk has been injured in last game. They are in low morale now.

 

Verdict:

There is no gap between two sides. Both of them are in poor condition. Newcastle United rank the nineteenth in League table and Leeds United rank the seventeenth. So the result of upcoming game is suggested to be a draw.

 

Prediction: 1-1, 0-0

Newcastle vs Leeds

The action in the Premier League kicks off on Friday night this weekend with the 8pm BST kick-off between Newcastle and Leeds at St James' Park. Both teams have endured a difficult start to their respective league campaigns so far with neither side able to pick up a single win yet. A victory could ignite their season but does either team have the ability or confidence to go and grab all 3 points?

Newcastle are in arguably their worst state in a number of seasons. The Magpies are down in 19th place with just 1 point earned from their 4 league games thus far. It is Newcastle's joint worst start to a Premier League campaign. The fans are already putting pressure on Steve Bruce and the team are leaking goals having conceded a division-high 12 goals already. It's a poor defensive record that has plagued the club throughout 2021 with the team only keeping 4 clean sheets to date. Karl Darlow and Ryan Fraser could be in line to start this game but the likes of Callum Wilson, Jonjo Shelvey, and Paul Dummett are all still ruled out. It's probably not the best news that Wilson is still missing with Newcastle only managing to win 2 of their 13 Premier League games without the striker.

Leeds might be down in 17th place with just 2 points from their 4 opening league matches but you get the feeling the alarm bells aren't ringing yet with the Whites faithful. The two defeats have come against strong opponents in Manchester United and Liverpool then they held their own against both Everton and Burnley. Marcelo Bielsa is sticking with this highly intense pressing philosophy. It does mean that Leeds have been left exposed at the back facing 28 more shots on target than any other side in the top flight. History is sending the team a brutal message though. It's the first time since 1958 that the club have failed to win any of their top 3 league games to a top flight season. It's perhaps also disconcerting to read that Leeds and Norwich are the only two sides to not have led in a Premier League game in 2021... and Norwich have only been a Premier League team for 4 games! Defending set-pieces is still an issue for the Leeds with the team conceding 13 goals from corners since the beginning of last season.

It was Leeds who earned a double over Newcastle last season and they'll be hoping to win 3 games in a row against the Toon Army for the first time since 1967. This is likely to be aided by the fact that Bruce has won just 1 of his last 9 matches against Leeds as a manager. I think Newcastle are in a more desperate situation than Leeds right now and even if we just put these managers head-to-head then Bielsa is the far more capable manager. I'm backing a Leeds win.

Wolves vs Brentford

An intriguing match awaits us in the 12:30pm BST kick-off on Saturday afternoon in the Premier League when Wolves play Brentford at Molineux. It's been a satisfactory start for both of these teams with mid-table positions being held after four league games but there's also room for improvement. A win could push them into the upper echelons of the table but are either team brave or capable enough to go for it?

Wolves started the season with three 1-0 defeats to Leicester, Tottenham, and Manchester United but in all three games arguably deserved more from the games. The 2-0 win away to Watford was comfortable and suggested that maybe things could be moving in the right direction for Bruno Lage's side as they ended a run of 6 league defeats in a row stretching back from last season. Wanderers are still short on confidence at home having suffered 8 home league defeats during 2021 which is the most out of the current set of Premier League teams. Frustratingly, it had taken Wolves 69 shots on goal before they bagged their first of the season against Watford. Striker Raul Jimenez has also had 13 shots on goal without scoring. Is it coming?

Brentford have adapted to life in the Premier League like a duck to water. Thomas Frank's side have picked up 5 points from their 4 league games so far. The Bees started the campaign with an historic 2-0 win over Arsenal before draws against Crystal Palace and Aston Villa. The 1-0 loss at home to Brighton was disappointed but still showed enough encouraging signs that the newly promoted side have enough to stay up this season. That loss to Brighton ended an undefeated league streak of 15 matches stretching back from last season. If Brentford keep a clean sheet then they'll be the first team since Everton in 1992 to concede only 2 goals or less in their opening 5 games of the Premier League.

These are two sides that are still largely unpredictable right now. Wolves are probably not earning the points their performances deserve but they still look a bit short in attacking prowess. Brentford have shown the potential to take scalps in this division but they have also now gone three league games without a win. I wouldn't be surprised if we see Wolves extend their unbeaten run in this fixture to 5 matches with a win here.

Burnley vs Arsenal

If there is one Premier League game this weekend where you can identify it as a potential shock result then it's Burnley versus Arsenal in a 3pm BST kick-off on Saturday afternoon at Turf Moor. Both teams have had torrid starts to their seasons with both sides currently positioned in the bottom five places in the league but can we expect a struggle for the away team here with the home team having the better of the results over recent times?

Burnley come into this game in 18th place with just 1 point earned from their opening 4 league games. Sean Dyche's team are becoming synonymous with slow starts. In fact, the rumours that he injects Bovril and tar into his players as preparation for a league season are fast looking more realistic with every passing campaign. The Clarets are without a win in 12 league games at home and have already dropped a division-high 8 points from winning positions this season. The team has only managed 16 goals in 21 league home matches. General form in the league is also pretty rancid with Burnley only winning 4 of their last 23 top flight matches. Each of those wins came away from home. However, they are unbeaten against Arsenal in the past three meetings.

Arsenal continue to stumble through life in the Premier League. Mikel Arteta's side picked up their first 3 points of the season in their 1-0 win at home against newly promoted Norwich but it was far from commanding. The win moves the Gunners up to 16th in the table but huge question marks still hang over the future of Arteta with Arsenal fans adamant his time is up. If Arsenal lose this game then it'll be the first time that they've lost their opening three away league games to a season since 1954. The opening goal could be key in this game with Arsenal losing 15 of the last 21 top flight matches where they have conceded first. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is certainly a contender for anytime scorer having bagged 8 goals in 7 league games against Burnley.

On paper, this should be a game where Arsenal waltz away with 3 points but Burnley appear to have Arsenal's number under Arteta. I think the only thing that could be Arsenal's saving grace here is that Burnley are in awful form themselves, especially at home. I'm not sure either team has the capabilities or confidence to win this game so I'm going to back a rather dull and depressing bore draw.
