Premier League predictions: Paul Ince gives his verdict on weekend games

Paul Ince delivers his weekly Premier League tips for Express Sport

Liverpool v Man United: 2-3 (Paddy Power odds: 25/1)

The way these two teams are playing, especially this season, with all-out attack, there’s got to be plenty of goals in it. I think it depends on how Jose Mourinho sets up his team, but if they can capitalise on some of the mistakes that Liverpool’s defence will certainly make, it’s probably just about theirs for the taking.

Burnley v West Ham: 1-1 (Paddy Power odds: 5/1)

I can’t see there being many goals in this one, and in fact I can’t see it being much of a thriller at all. That being said, we all know how tough Burnley can be on their own pitch, so I don’t think they’ll roll over for West Ham. A 1-1 draw seems right to me.

Crystal Palace v Chelsea: 1-3 (Paddy Power odds: 10/1)

If Eden Hazard plays, which he did for Belgium, I think he will net the first goal and I honestly believe Chelsea will make light work of this. They’ve got a few injuries, so I don’t think they’ll do as well as Man United or City did against Palace but, come on, I can’t see them losing.

Man City v Stoke: 3-0 (Paddy Power odds: 13/2)

I just love watching Manchester City play at the minute. They look phenomenal, real title-winning material, and I think they’ll make it very tough for Stoke to get a result. I could see the visitors bagging one goal, perhaps a set piece, though I’m going for a 3-0 win off the back of The Blues’ latest performances. Kevin de Bruyne is on fire too.

Swansea v Huddersfield: 2-1 (Paddy Power odds: 17/2)

It obviously pains me a bit to say this one, but Huddersfield’s defence isn’t doing them any favours at the minute and I think they might struggle this weekend away from home. I hope I’m wrong, otherwise it’ll be a miserable 90 minutes for me on BT Sport.

Tottenham v Bournemouth: 3-1 (Paddy Power odds: 17/2)

The way Harry Kane is playing at the minute, wow. He’s lethal, and with Bournemouth playing the way they are you’ve got to back Spurs to put a few past them.

Manchester United Liverpool.

Watford v Arsenal: 1-2 (Paddy Power odds: 7/1)

I think Alexandre Lacazette will net one here, after bagging in the West Brom game before the break. Watford are doing okay, though, and I don’t necessarily think it will be a drubbing from the Arsenal team.

Brighton v Everton: 2-1 (Paddy Power odds: 10/1)

This is a HUGE game for Ronald Koeman. It’s a must-win, in my eyes, I think he absolutely has to get something here. But, to be brutally honest, I’m just not sure he will. Brighton will fancy their chances against Everton the way they’ve been playing lately.

Southampton v Newcastle: 1-1 (Paddy Power odds: 11/2)

Saints aren’t scoring a lot of goals, and have been fairly disappointing this season. This one is a tough call, but the way both of the teams are shaping up I’d say a 1-1 draw would be a fair result for both sides.

Leicester v West Brom: 2-0 (Paddy Power odds: 8/1)

Leicester are decent at home so you’ve got to fancy them, I think Jamie Vardy will sneak one too after his break during the internationals.
