Another Premier League gameweek is in the history books and that means it is time to once again review how I fared in terms of my predictions, now there were a couple of coupon busters over the weekend but just what has that done to my score this week. Let’s take a look shall we.
Chelsea vs Leicester – Chelsea Win NO
Crystal Palace vs Burnley – Draw NO
Huddersfield vs West Ham – West Ham Win YES
Newcastle vs Swansea – Draw YES
Watford vs Southampton – Draw YES
West Brom vs Brighton – West Brom Win YES
Tottenham vs Everton – Tottenham Win YES
Bournemouth vs Arsenal – Arsenal Win NO
Liverpool vs Manchester City – Manchester City Win NO
Manchester United vs Stoke – Manchester United Win YES
It’s fair to say that Chelsea and Arsenal were coupon busters while the fact that Manchester City’s incredible unbeaten start to the season meant that my prediction at Anfield. However I still came away with an above average 6 out of 10.
A relatively strong Saturday was let down by an awful Sunday with a big thanks to Manchester United for picking up the slack last night after their comprehensive win over a Stoke side which has just appointed Paul Lambert as their manager.
What does that do for the maths side of things though, well after 23 complete gameweeks there have been 230 fixtures played and of those I have got 115 of these correct. This means my hit rate for the season is at exactly 50%, as bang average as you can get quite frankly.
I believe it was something in the region of 52% that I got last season, so edging closer to that tally. If I can end up with a 55% success rate this time around then at least it will be an improvement although in fairness not a lot to crow about either. I’ll be back on Thursday to offer my Week 24 tips. Until then.
