he way as the possession continue

Postby lw789 » Tue Aug 07, 2018 10:41 pm

Paul Merson is back from a refreshing international break with another round of Premier League predictions. The Magic Man got six results correct last time out, including three perfect scores, and is looking for more of the same this weekend.It kicks off with Leicesters trip to Chelsea on Saturday afternoon, live on Sky Sports, while a mouthwatering Monday Night Football clash between Liverpool and Man Utd brings things to a close. Mersons previous predictions Result Merse predicted Everton 1-1 Crystal Palace 2-1 Swansea 1-2 Liverpool 0-3 West Ham 1-1 Middlesbrough 1-1 Hull 0-2 Chelsea 1-2 Sunderland 1-1 West Brom 1-1 Watford 2-2 Bournemouth 2-2 Man Utd 1-1 Stoke 3-0 Leicester 0-0 Southampton 1-2 Tottenham 2-0 Man City 2-2 Burnley 0-1 Arsenal 0-2 Read on to find out what Merse is tipping...Chelsea v Leicester City - live on Sky Sports 1 HD, Saturday from 11.30am Paul Merson selects his Fantasy Six-a-Side team ahead of Chelsea v Leicester Its a big game for both teams. For Chelsea, they need to get back into the race for the top four, and for Leicester, if they lose it will be one of the worst ever starts to a title defence.I wouldnt say a win puts Chelsea back in the title hunt, I have seen plenty of them this season and Id be shocked if they won the league from this position. But it could get them back in the race for Champions League qualification. Watch NOW TV Watch Sky Sports for just £6.99. No contract I think opponents have sussed out Leicester. When Liverpool ripped them to shreds, they squeezed hard and were nicking the ball for fun.Leicester are not going to pass around you, and when you are organised at the back, its difficult for them to create. I dont see anything other than a Chelsea win.PAUL PREDICTS: 3-1 (Sky Bet odds 10/1) Hull 0-2 Chelsea Middlesbrough v Watford - Super Sunday, live on Sky Sports 1 HD from 12.30pm It depends which Watford turns up - the one that beat Man Utd or the one that was poor against Burnley.They let in goals and score plenty, and theres not bundles between the two teams in terms of quality, so I think it will be an entertaining draw.PAUL PREDICTS: 2-2 (Sky Bet odds 14/1) West Ham 1-1 Middlesbrough Southampton v Burnley - Super Sunday, live on Sky Sports 1 HD from 3.30pmSouthampton are a good team and I think some people are underestimating them. You look at their back four and they wouldnt look out of place at a club like Arsenal.They should have won easily at Leicester, and I dont care what standard of football you are playing, to keep six straight clean sheets like theyve done is some achievement. Burnley were unlucky and should have got a draw against Arsenal, but they have struggled on their travels.PAUL PREDICTS: 2-0 (Sky Bet odds 9/2) Leicester 0-0 Southampton Liverpool v Man Utd - Monday Night Football, live on Sky Sports 1 HD from 7pmI dont think Man Utd will be able to live with Liverpools attacking players and if the hosts start quickly they will have too much at Anfield.This is a huge game for Man Utd, though, because Im predicting Arsenal, Chelsea, Man City and Tottenham all to win, and the gap could grow quickly. All the top teams are capable of stringing six wins together so you dont want to be playing catch-up this early. Im not sure Jose Mourinho knows his best team yet and he needs to get that sorted. They played well for 20 minutes against Stoke, but for a large part of that game they didnt look like scoring.Considering the way Liverpool press high, I think Man Utd will struggle to open the game up.PAUL PREDICTS: 3-1 (Sky Bet odds 14/1) Premier League Vault | Liverpool 1-2 Man Utd 2012 West Brom v Tottenham - Saturday, 3pmTottenham are playing very well at the moment and while the Man City result was brilliant, these are the types of games that win you Premier League titles.If Harry Kane got injured last season you couldnt see Spurs winning a game for toffee. Now it seems like nothing has changed despite his absence, which is a massive compliment to the other players.West Brom have turned the corner but I have been majorly impressed by Tottenham.PAUL PREDICTS: 0-3 (Sky Bet odds 12/1) Sunderland 1-1 West Brom Bournemouth v Hull City - Saturday, 3pmI fancy Bournemouth at home. They are playing well and got a good result at Watford after beating Everton.If they win this game too, they could have a really comfortable season. Its only early but you need to win the games against the teams around you and I think Bournemouth will do that on Saturday.They play an open style of football and Jack Wilshere looked very sharp against Watford - I know he missed a sitter but hes getting back to where he was at Arsenal.PAUL PREDICTS: 3-1 (Sky Bet odds 14/1) Watford 2-2 Bournemouth Arsenal v Swansea - Saturday, 3pmIf I was Bob Bradley, I would probably have waited until Monday before taking charge! This is a tough first game.Swansea have a great recent record at the Emirates and Arsenal were lucky against Burnley, but I see a Gunners victory here. Play Super 6! Play the Soccer Saturday Super 6 game NOW! What has impressed me with Arsenal is they werent great against Southampton and Burnley, but they won both matches. In previous years they would have probably dropped points.Its always dangerous coming off an international break and star players like Alexis Sanchez will have done a lot of travelling, but the way Arsenal are playing at the moment means Swansea will do well to get near them.PAUL PREDICTS: 3-0 (Sky Bet odds 7/1) Burnley 0 - 1 Arsenal Stoke v Sunderland - Saturday, 3pmThese two teams are at the bottom for a reason. Still, each will think it only takes one big win to get up and running.It would be massive for Sunderland, who have thrown away quite a few points already this season. I dont usually go against Stoke at home, though, and I know their record is poor at the moment but there was cause for optimism at Old Trafford.David Moyes side have been a bit unlucky at times but they are so reliant on Jermain Defoe its scary.PAUL PREDICTS: 2-0 (Sky Bet odds 8/1) Manchester Utd 1-1 Stoke Man City v Everton - Saturday, 3pmEverton have gone off the boil a little bit recently and I dont see how they can match Tottenhams tempo when they beat Man City.They need to press high and make sure Claudio Bravo cant pass it out. You let him kick it long because they have Raheem Sterling, Sergio Aguero and David Silva, and none of them are over 5ft 8in.Teams are catching on to this because it forces City to take even more chances at the back, which gives you opportunities. But can Everton play that way for 90 minutes? I dont think so.City always have a go and Everton will create chances, so it should be high scoring.PAUL PREDICTS: 3-2 (Sky Bet odds 20/1) Tottenham 2-0 Man City Crystal Palace v West Ham - Saturday, 5.30pmChristian Benteke should be unplayable. He is tall, strong, quick and great in the air, and it was just a lack of confidence at Liverpool. Hes got that back now and has been great for Palace.In contrast, West Ham are struggling and their confidence is shot, so if Alan Pardews side start quickly I can see them running away with it.It is a concerning time for the Hammers because it took an unbelievable piece of magic by Dimitri Payet to get a draw at home to Middlesbrough.They have played Watford, Bournemouth, Southampton and Boro at the London Stadium and only have one win. All the big boys are still to come.PAUL PREDICTS: 3-1 (Sky Bet odds 14/1) Everton 1-1 Crystal Palace You can watch Liverpool v Man Utd, plus Englands tour of Bangladesh and the British Masters on Sky Sports.

George Hill Cavaliers Jersey .Y. - The New York Yankees made it official Saturday, announcing the completion of a seven-year deal with free-agent outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury and a one-year contract for returning starter Hiroki Kuroda.DALLAS - Stephen Curry thought about protecting his ankles. Golden State coach Steve Kerr screamed for a timeout.The object of their preoccupation? Marreese Speights wayward shoe.In a game with a weird footnote, the Warriors won their franchise-record 15th in row Saturday as Curry scored 29 points in a 105-98 victory over the Dallas Mavericks.It was a bizarre sequence, said Kerr, at 20-2 off to the fastest start ever for a first-year coach.After Speights lost his shoe making a move for the Warriors in the third quarter, the big mans sneaker was thrown toward midcourt to get it out of the way as the possession continued.When the teams headed back the other way, Curry picked up the loose shoe and tried to toss it to Speights. But Mavericks centre Tyson Chandler swatted the sneaker in midair, knocking it near the sideline and prompting Curry to gesture toward an official.The blocked shoe drew the biggest roar from an otherwise quiet crowd.When I was on the wing, and I saw the shoe, and I immediately thought about my ankles, so I thought, I got to pick that up before I try to make that move, Curry said. On the other transition, when he went to go get his shoe back, but Tyson thought um, otherwise, I guess. Ive never seen that happen before.Chandler said the move was purely tactical, not motivational for a team that fell behind by 21 points in the first quarter and 28 in the second before getting within seven points in the final minute of the game.You cant run with a sock on, said Chandler, who had 11 point and 12 rebounds for his 12th double-double. I was hoping that we could exploit them at the other end until they either had to call timeout or he had to foul. But we didnt take advantage of it.Chandler was pretty sure there wasnt a rule against the swat, and Kerr was pretty sure he was ready for that to change.A shoe rule! he said, laughing. Like the Larry Bird exception. The Tyson Chandler rule. No deflectingg shoes!Dirk Nowitzki, who scored 23 points for Dallas, approved of the move.ddddddddddddhat was probably the best defensive play of the night, he said.Curry and Klay Thompson each scored 17 in the first half, and Thompson finished with 25 as the Warriors became the 12th NBA team to open a season 20-2.Monta Ellis scored 24 points to lead the Mavericks, who played without Chandler Parsons because of a sore back. Dallas dropped to 0-5 against the top seven teams in the Western Conference.TIP-INSWarriors: C Andrew Bogut had flu-like symptoms to go with right knee tendinitis that also kept him out of Wednesdays game against Houston. ...

Draymond Green had 20 points and eight rebounds for Golden State, and Harrison Barnes added 12 points and nine boards.Mavericks: Coach Rick Carlisle got a technical early in the season half when he complained that Green wasnt called for an illegal screen on Ellis as Curry came around the pick and hit a 3-pointer. ... G Jameer Nelson returned after missing one game with a sore right shoulder.GOOD MEMORIESKerr made his first trip as a coach to the site of his last shining moment as a player, when he was an afterthought for San Antonio on its way to the title in 2003. He hit four 3-pointers as part of a huge fourth-quarter rally that helped the Spurs avoid a Game 7 in the Western Conference finals against the Mavericks. He had just one more 3-pointer in the playoffs before retiring after the season. That was fun, Kerr said.FILLING IN FOR PARSONSRichard Jefferson, starting in Parsons spot, had 13 points and 13 rebounds, his first double-double in those categories since Dec. 3, 2010, when he had 15 points and 10 boards for San Antonio against Minnesota.UP NEXTWarriors at New Orleans on Sunday to finish a back-to-back.Mavericks at New York on Tuesday.
