Mystic Jarv’s Saturday 29/08 Premier League Predictions

Posted by Jarv on August 28, 2009

Its Friday and time for another round of me plucking random numbers out of the air and writing some words otherwise known as Mystic Jarv’s Premier league Predictions, Last round i got 6 out of 10 results right but no perfect scores. Lets see how i do this time

Chelsea Vs Burnley – 12:45

So…hands up those who predicted Burnley to have 6 points after 3 games. Well i didn’t and i don’t expect them to win at Stamford Bridge either. At home with the crowd behind them is one thing but against Chelsea who seems to be playing very well this season and Ancelotti appears able to change things at half time if they are struggling i can only see one result.

Mystic Jarv predicts  a 2-0 win for Chelsea

Blackburn Rovers Vs West Ham United – 15:00

Personally i think this has draw written all over it, a battling Blackburn against West Ham who are a little one dimensional up front, well they would be with only 1 fit striker.

West ham will want to put the midweek behind them as soon as possible and Blackburn will want to get off the mark or risk being in a big relegation fight.

Mystic Jarv predicts a 1-1 draw

Bolton Wanderers vs Liverpool  – 15:00

Well thats season over for Liverpool isn’t it…….no of course it isn’t but you might be forgiven for believing the multitude of Tabaloid papers that claim it is. While i might have had some fun at my Liverpool supporting mates expense there is in reality a long way to go in this seasons title race.

Bolton aren’t a great side, they’re not even a good premiership side, The had chances against Hull but Hull are not a good side either. Now if Liverpool were to lose this game then questions would need to be asked, I don’t see it though

Mystic Jarv Predicts 1-3 to Liverpool

Stoke City Vs Sunderland – 15:00

I’m a big fan of Steve Bruce, he did wonders with Wigan last year and found some gems who have moved on to bigger clubs , He appears to be doing the same for Sunderland, he has Bent motivated and firing.

Stoke were a lot of peoples tip for relegation last season and ended up comfortably staying up with a philosophy buiult on Hard work which i think will keep them up this season too however i think Sunderland will have too uch for Stoke even at home.

Mystic Jarv predicts 0-2 to Sunderland

Tottenham Hotspur Vs Birmingham City -15:00

Tottenham are flying high, top of the league and have a real chance of going into the International break with a 100% record, Jermain Defoe is really firing this season and they out played Liverpool in game 1, gave Hull a drubbing in game 2 and got a great away win at West Ham in game 3.

Birmingham will be reasonably pleased with 4 points from their first 3 games, they have already got rid of the trip to Old Trafford, A similar average return per game will see them safe….if only it were that simple.

Mystic Jarv Predicts 2-0 to Tottenham Hotspur

Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Hull City – 15:00

Two clubs i’ve tipped to be battling against the drop this season, Wolves did ok against City at towards the end of the match and Hull got a morale boosting win last week against Bolton.

I can’t help thinking this wont be a game for the football purists though.

Mystic Jarv predicts a bore draw 0-0

Manchester United Vs Arsenal – 17:15pm

Both teams come into this game on the back of good results, Manchester United beat Wigan 5-0 last weekend and Arsenal beat Celtic 3-1 in the Champions League.

This is the first meeting of any of the “big 4” this season and both will want to lay down a marker. All too often over the years this game is billed as an Epic premier league title decider only to peter out into a low scoring scrappy affair. This season however it hasn’t been built up anywhere near as much and i can’t help wondering if that is because Arsenal are not seen as genuine challengers this season. To be honest Arsenal were my tip to drop out of the top 4 this year.

Arsenal have started well this season and destroyed Everton on the first weekend and have a Plus 8 Goal difference from their 2 matches. United have looked less than impressive from their first 2 games and were not overly stunning in the first half against Wigan, once the first goal came however it was a different story.

Both clubs have a few injuries with United probably having the slight worst of it missing Van der Sar, Ferdinand, Rafael, Obertan and of course Owen Hargreaves, add to this Johnny Evans who needs surgery sooner rather than later and is playing through the pain. Arsenal are missing Nasri, Djourou, Rosicky (Arsenals very own version of Owen Hargreaves?), Fabianski and their biggest problem Fabregas, who may or may not be fit for the game. Lots to take into account, 2 Clubs with injuries, 2 clubs that like to play the game in an attacking way.

So anyway Mystic Jarv Predicts a 2-1 Win for Manchester United, the game could go either way and the first goal is Key.
