In our exclusive prediction special, in association with Paddy Power, Ince gives his verdict on this weekend’s Premier League games.
Bournemouth 1-3 Man City (Odds: 17/2)
I was watching Bournemouth last week and I just don’t think they can cope with this City team – I think Pep’s side will run out comfortable winners.
Crystal Palace 2-1 Swansea (Odds: 15/2)
This game could be anything. Neither team has started the season in great form, and you could call it an early relegation six-pointer, but I’d back Palace to come out on top.
Huddersfield 2-1 Southampton (Odds: 12/1)
At the moment, Huddersfield are playing very well, to be fair to them – they’re not conceding and they’re scoring plenty of goals. I think this will be tight, but I fancy them to continue their good form.
Newcastle 2-2 West Ham (Odds: 11/1)
West Ham are conceding loads of goals at the moment, but could you trust either side to get a result for you? I expect an entertaining score draw.
Watford 2-0 Brighton (Odds: 15/2)
I like Brighton, Chris Hughton has done a great job there, and keeps things tight, but I’ve been really impressed with Watford so far this season.
Manchester United 3-1 Leicester (Odds: 10/1)
United are scoring goals for fun. This might not be another 4-0, but I do expect it to be another impressive win for Mourinho’s men.
Chelsea 3-1 Everton (Odds: 10/1)
Bloody hell, it’s tough games to predict this week! I think Everton were decent against City, they’ll do OK this season, but I still reckon Chelsea will have too much for them, regardless of their injury issues.
WBA 1-1 Stoke (Odds: 5/1)
Well, this sounds like a great game, doesn’t it..? The Tony Pulis Derby! I don’t think either side will score a lot of goals this season, and expect them to cancel each other out.
Liverpool 2-1 Arsenal (Odds: 15/2)
I just don’t think Arsenal are quite there yet this season. Going to Anfield is tough, but they’ll be helped by the midweek Champions League match Liverpool have – though I think the home team will edge it.
Spurs 3-1 Burnley (Odds: 10/1)
It’s a big old pitch at Wembley, a place you can’t hide. Burnley are great at closing things down defensively, but I fancy Tottenham – they were good against Chelsea, even though they were beaten.
