Another action packed week of Premier League action is in the history books and now it is time to review how I fared in terms of predictions, last week it was a bang average five out of ten, let’s see if I have fared any better this time around
Tottenham vs Southampton – Tottenham Win YES
Bournemouth vs West Ham – Draw YES
Chelsea vs Brighton – Chelsea Win YES
Huddersfield vs Stoke – Draw YES
Manchester United vs Burnley – Manchester United Win NO
Watford vs Leicester – Leicester Win NO
West Brom vs Everton – Everton Win NO
Liverpool vs Swansea – Liverpool Win YES
Newcastle vs Manchester City – Manchester City Win YES
Crystal Palace vs Arsenal – Draw NO
So a slight improvement on last week with 6 out of 10 this time around, a couple of coupon busters there and in hindsight a pretty poor pick also as first Manchester United and Everton were held to draws in games they should really have won while in hindsight the Arsenal pick should have been an away win.
Still hindsight is a wonderful thing so there is no point dwelling on the fact that one of the picks did not go my way. From a maths point of view how has that done in terms of my season strike rate. From a potential 200 picks, I have made 98 correct predictions meaning I am now 49% for the season. If I was to get seven in the next week then I would finally tip myself back over 50% for the campaign.
That said I’ve been a pretty decent run of form as of late, maybe that is down to just picking the top six team to win but maybe that says more about the state of the Premier League then it does my predictions. I will be back with my Week 21 picks in a few hours time, until then.
