Due to the FA Cup we only have four games in the Premier League this weekend:
Bournemouth vs West Ham
West Ham’s fortunes have improved since the departure for Dimitri Payet. On the other hand Bournemouth can’t even buy a win these days they are looking dreadful lately and at this stage of the competition they really can’t afford to be dragged into the relegation dog fight. West Ham have the better squad overall and morale is high. It also helps that they’re playing good football. I think this will be a tight one but I can see West Ham winning 2-1.
Everton vs West Brom
Everton have the home advantage in this one, and with star striker Romelu Lukaku in top form. Lukaku faces a former side in this one as he was on loan at West Brom from Chelsea. So the defenders will know all about him and he will know all about them. However with that being said the Belgian has added so much to his game and he’s more a complete player since his stint at the Hawthorns. Everton win this one 2-0.
Hull City vs Swansea
Both teams have had a good turn of fortunes since the arrivals of their new managers respectively. Swansea have managed to pull away from the bottom 3 and Hull have seen some results help their cause a bit. I really can’t separate these sides so I’m going to have to go with a 2-2 draw.
Liverpool vs Burnley
Liverpool are on fire at the minute and they’ve managed to start registering points now and they come up against a Burnley side who only have 2 points away from home all season. I think Klopp’s men will make matters worse for Sean Dyche’s side and heap further away troubles onto them. Liverpool win 2-0.
